Does any one remember that silly song? Back when I was just a young'un, late '50s and early '60s, and yes, I rode a dinosaur to school, there was a TV show called " 77 Sunset Strip." It was a detective show, and I think that was the address of the agency, and one of the detectives was Edd Byrnes. His name on the show was Kookie, and he was always combing his hair. He had quite a following of goo-goo eyed girls for a while, but other than a few B movies, you didn't hear much from him after the shows demise.
Today I drove to the grocery store, and of course, I had the radio on. I most often listen to the oldies station on Sirius. Today was no exception. And driving across the mesa, that song played, the first time I'd heard it is .... well, forever, and I found myself chuckling and singing along.
OK, not sure why it was important to share that.
Before I completely leave that topic, however, let me just say Sirius radio rocks. When I bought my truck, I would never have asked for that as part of the package, but I was glad when I learned it was there. In there mountains, it is often difficult to get good reception on a broadcast radio station. Also, traveling across the country, I used to run into a lot of areas where I could get nothing but country music (and I like it, but not a steady diet) or farm reports (and no, I don't like those). I carry CDs and my iPod, but even so ....
So once I heard it and experienced the variety of stations, I was in love with satellite radio. Even when my free 1 year subscription ran out and I had to pay the fee, I still love, love, love it! Is there anyone out there who has satellite radio and doesn't like it? I would doubt it.
I listen to different music all the time. When I drove to Florida I know I listened to oldies, country, classical, jazz, blues, big band, '60s and '70s rock. Oh, and some NPR. Love it!
I stopped at the post office to mail some things, and I chatted with the post mistress (are they still called that, or are they post masters, regardless of gender?) and we talked about the enormous project of remaining streets and remembering houses that has been going on here since before I moved here. I figured it was to simplify, and I was basically right. However, I learned today that it is one of the many, many changes resulting from 9/11!! No shilosky! It has to do with taking away as many duplications of street names (for instance, there were several Lincoln streets in this, Lincoln, county), as well as renumbering consistently. It's all so we can be located more easily for emergencies, and probably in case one of us becomes a t*rror*st. Yeah, they want to find us. How interesting! My house number AND street name was changed shortly before I moved in, and it caused a lot of confusion in my closing because no one knew where I really lived!
OK, that's all I've got today. Resume your activities. HEY! WAKE UP!!! Alright, now get back to work. Later y'all!
