Yes our lifestyles have changed so much haven't they over the years. In fact I quite miss my time as a youngster growing up all those years ago when everything was so different.

cheering at that song! Three faves of mine, I even put a Stevie song on yesterday's post! I got tears in my eyes, wishing my country could really be the united states and see the value of every citizen who brings strength to the whole. But it's broken... and I have tears in my eyes, and hope one day for human rights for all. Sorry to be so heavy... LeeAnna

Grand again Gillena... nifty_!
__ While reading, those radios so often amplified our thoughts; as in this instant senryu.


memory's music
such stories in that static
lit my path of thought

Old familiar songs, take me way way back to the 40s, 50s. And they soothe, resurrect wonderful memories. Thanks for writing this.

There is magic in music that takes us back... and keeps us.

Happiest Sunday, Gillena.

I'm waxing nostalgic for my radio. Listening to online streaming just isn't the same.

Andrea @ From The Sol said...

Loving your music ... hope all the fathers in your family are enjoying their day. We will have a quiet day ... I am cooking my FH his favorite meal and we will be joined by our daughter. Our son is out on a golf date then barbecue with the same couple. They are young and smart so they will social distance and still enjoy their day out. Enjoyed my visit ... gave some spunk to my Sunday :)
