My first 8 track tape, which I remember installing a player in my car, probably in late 67. Anyway, it was the Mama and the Papas, California Dreamin'. I just loved that album and I guess I still do. I like a lot of stuff.

This is a true story, so funny. So yesterday late afternoon, my wife and I were over at my daughter's, having supper and visiting. I was telling them what all my wife had given me for my 70th birthday, which mostly was a bunch of Trump memorabilia. I was describing the last little piece, which was a picture frame with an outline of a Trump ball cap with the words "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" on it. Anyway, it was/is very bright and flashes. Anyway, as I was telling them about it, my mouth got out in front of my slow brain and I said that the hat read "MAKE AMERICA COME AGAIN". Anyway, it was funny at the time.

We just saw Billy Joel this past Saturday at Lambeau. It was so much fun and so many of the songs took my back to my high school, college and early married days. It was great fun and my hubby and I have been listening to his music all week.

1. Kick the Can.
2. Jacks
3. Yatzee
4. Riding my bike until the street lights came on and then it was hurry home.
5. Wonderful World of Disney every weekend. TV shows were so much more enjoyable.


The song that gets me teary eyed is Abraham, Martin and John.
