ON MY SOAPBOX…Life needs a rewind button

Heavens to Murgatroyd….was an expression popularized by the cartoon character Snagglepuss, a regular on the Yogi Bear Show in the 1960s. Murgatroyd!  Do you remember that word?

Tell a youngster that in your youth, you drove a Jalopy. They will be totally confused and ask, “What is a Jalopy?”

Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and get a Chuckle from it.

Some old expressions have become obsolete because of the unstoppable invasion of technology.  These phrases included:  A kodak moment, Don’t touch that dial, Carbon copy, You sound like a broken record, and Hung out to dry.

Back in the olden days we had a lot of  moxie.  We’d put on our best bib and tucker, to straighten up and fly right.

Heavens to Betsy!  Gee whillikers!  Jumping Jehoshaphat!  Holy Moley!

We were  in like Flynn and  living the life of Riley; behind our backs we may have been called a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill.  But not to our face….Not for all the tea in China!

Remember when life was SWELL? When is the last time anything was swell? Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes, and pedal pushers.

Kilroy was here…..but he isn’t anymore.

Earliest human drawing discovered in South African cave

We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say, “Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle!” We discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed as common as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues, pens and  keyboards.

Poof,  go the words of our youth, the words we’ve left behind.  We blink, and they’re gone.  Where have all those great phrases gone?

Long gone: Pshaw, The milkman did it.  Hey!  It’s your nickel.  Don’t forget to pull the chain.  Knee high to a grasshopper.  Well, Fiddlesticks!  Going like sixty. Okidoki, I’ll see you in the funny papers.  Don’t take any wooden nickels. Wake up and smell the roses.

It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter has liver pills. This can be disturbing stuff! (Carter’s Little Liver Pills are gone too!)

Leaves us to wonder where Superman will find a phone booth.

See ya later, alligator!

WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE FABULOUS PAST. NO ONE WILL EVER HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY AGAIN.  WE WERE GIVEN A PRECIOUS GIFT:  BEING BLESSED TO LIVE IN AMERICA WHEN ALL AMERICANS LOVED OUR COUNTRY. THANKS TO THE DEDICATION AND MORALS HANDED DOWN TO US BY THE “GREATEST GENERATION!”

Good Ones

The Republicans should not forget that Atlanta, (DeKalb, and Fulton counties) are sanctuary places where following the law is an old memory.  Both counties had major ballot problems in 2020.  Stacey might have more personal debts to pay.

The Gator-back Rocks of Mars
Image Credit: NASA, JPL-Caltech, MSSS

Explanation: Wind-sharpened rocks known as ventifacts, cover this broad sloping plain in the foot hills of Mount Sharp, Gale crater, Mars. Dubbed gator-back rocks their rugged, scaly appearance is captured in these digitally stitched Mastcam frames from the Curiosity rover on mission sol 3,415 (March 15, 2022). Driving over gator-back rocks before has resulted in damage to the rover’s wheels, so Curiosity team members decided to turn around and take another path to continue the rover’s climb. Curiosity has been on an ascent of Gale crater’s central 5.5 kilometer high mountain since 2014. As it climbs, it’s been able to study layers shaped by water on Mars billions of years ago.
