Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.
This is a word often associated with romance and marriage. The first one does not last at least not in my case. Too many Exes– so there was never a “Jumping the Broom” stage. When I was young and stupid I used to get all doe eyed sweet but as the years pass reality has set in. Sometimes I do get nostalgic for childhood. No bills. No money worries. Few responsibilities. Very little stress. No crazy bosses, insane co-workers or psychotic jobs! Mom and Dad took care of us and life ran smoothly but once again reality showed up in the form of cancer and the Happy Life went up in smoke.
However let’s indulge the word Sentimental and take a journey down Memory Lane. My parents world of Big Bands, 78s, the Brooklyn Dodgers, transistor radios and a little of my innocent care-free past.
Come with me as we enter the Make Believe Ballroom
Glenn Miller ~~ Sentimental Journey
Ella Fitzgerald ~~ Sentimental Journey
Now Let me bring you some Baby Boomer Forget Me Not Tunes.
Patrice Rushen – Forget Me Nots
Finally a song from one of the greatest Female Singers ever. A song that brings tears to my eyes because I still have many faded photographs from Happy times gone by. Miss you much Minnie Riperton. Sooner or later everyone we have ever loved or cherished will leave us leaving on distant untouchable memories.
