Sunday Respite: A Bible and a Bus ticket

This time of year it is not uncommon to see family members and friends set sail for the beginning of the next chapter in their lives. Always a push-pull of emotions. Happy to see them move on with their lives, and sad at losing them. I think this song sums it all up.

    Memories of yesterday. Roy Clark had a good song, ‘Yesterday when I was young.’
    Of course the most fitting he sung for me was…’Where are you tonight?’, which since comments are light I’ll post the lyrics…for fun.
    Where, oh where, are you tonight?
    Why did you leave me here all alone?
    I searched the world over and I thought I’d found true love.
    But you met another and pthhp! You was gone.

    You took out your false teeth, your wig and your glasses.
    You were just scattered all over the place.
    I wanted to kiss you and hug you so tightly.
    I guess that I would have if I’d found your face.

    I went to your house at three in the morning.
    You had all them curlers and junk in your hair.
    You would not have scared me and I’d not have run so,
    If you had not looked like you’d wrestled a bear.

    I told you, my darlin’, you looked like a gopher.
    Made you so mad, you haven’t spoke since.
    But tell me my darling if you ain’t got buck teeth.
    How do you eat apples through a picket fence?

    When I picked you up for our date last weekend.
    You looked so pretty in your satin and lace.
    But when I bent over and started to kiss you,
    You popped a pimple all over my face!
    End of song. That’s getting memories down straight now.

    Powerful! Experience I’ve had as child leaving home and as a parent doing the send off. Something any natural born American can relate to. Too bad someone I know about missed it. 🙂
