There was an Old Lady and she was me!
Way back in April I riffed on The Media, the whipping boy/girl of the current regime: https://pjcolandoblog.com/the-media/
Thanks to television, it was easy to pick up what was new and cool when we were tweens/teens/twenty-somethings. Remember?
Kick back and getcha groove on, baby. Reminisce about when when we were all out of sight.
From A to Z, we were spectacular – and still are!
If we could only recall where we left our cheater-readers, the glasses we buy by the pack. This morning I put both contact lenses in the same eye – that old age attention deficit thingie interplayed while my mind was wondering onto another song. Yeah, the mind minder – the DJ spinning the sound track of my life, didn’t stay tuned to the task.

It’s time to dump this list of alphabetical phrases, this blast from the past. WordPress’s boundaries report that I wrote overlong. But, isn’t it fun to note how language evolves…
That’s it: my brain and body have ‘evolved’ 😉
