Surfs Up!!

Yeah...!!!!if you want to picture this..I'm running to the ocean....in my mind.  I'm there..I'm so there I need to brush the sand off my feet.  I understand how the spring breakers of college past have felt.  I'm one of 'em now.

I'm soooo getting ready, this has been the most challenging time for me, I'm trying to cram large seeds of information into a quarter cup.  Remember when feeding your babies how they keep spitting out what they can't take in and you keep shoving it back in.  Yep, you got it.  I'm spitting and a shovin' ha!  


I'm not spending a week at the beach, one day will suffice.  I don't like crowds.  I especially don't like the worry about cars running over me.  Last year it seemed to be a record  setting year of run overs.  Anyways,  I have my week planned, but the best laid plans of mice and men might just get in the way so I know enough about flexibility and not overdoing it.  This past week reminded me of that when my back went out on me.  I was so dang mad, the last thing I needed to do was miss school.  I have read almost two fiction books because sitting wasn't an option.  I couldn't even get on the computer. 
When you are on your back you have time to think and sometimes I believe these things happen so you can look at your life in retrospect.  Okay God you got my attention...I'm all ears.  I've contemplated a number of things I've been avoiding or thought a postponement was in order and now I'm trying to make sure my "feelings" haven't changed.  Feelings.  They are much more than a song, and are not to be trusted.  You cannot rely on feelings.  Mine change like the tide
So right now I'm more concerned with my back healing and my yard sale taking place, and that's about it.  Everything else can fall into place as HE sees fit.  A spring break shouldn't be structured like school  it should be flexible.  So I'm flexing, actually, my back still is healing but you get the idea...


Speaking of spring break, have you ever watched the Frankie Avalon and Annette Funnicello movies?
 They were "the most" in the '60's.  From todays standards they're so tame.  If you want to know what it was like for you older relatives in the dark ages, grab them, grab a blanket, some popcorn and Beach Blanket Bingo and while you're at it,  throw the Beach Boys on the Hi Fi.   It's so retro its fun watching the dances, fashion, lingo and hairstyles from then.  Cool man, it's like wow!  I know it's corny...but hey...

  2. I like watching those movies now for the appearances of interesting comedians in them - Don Rickles, Buster Keaton, Harvey Lembeck (from the Phil Silvers Show), etc.
