Friday Night Potpourri

Days, weeks, months, years...

  • The older I get, the more difficult it is to know which day of the week it is and which date of the month.
  • Weeks are easy and easier to track, partly thankful to Friday Night Potpourri.
  • Months generally follow the calendar page on the fridge, but sometimes the rent check makes it to the landlord on a "oh, my goodness" trip over there. Whew.
  • Years are so long, yet so short. Gee, just this time last year is easily remembered.
  • Our youngest just turned three. Each of his birthdays is easily remembered as happening not too long ago, yet multiply just a few years by ten, or a hundred (which are small numbers) and I realize just how fast history happens.
  • 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's. The decades pass as well, and our parents remember several more than we. What was 50's music really like outside of oldies stations on the radio in the 70's?
  • Say what you want about quality, it's just this type of song is the type you remember the very first time you hear it.

  1. It is perhaps the catchiest tune of all time. I remember when I first heard it, by a college band at a park festival. The music and lyrics stuck with me. Then, three years later, it became a U.S. top ten hit with the release of the movie Benny and June.
