The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 5/17

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “high/low.” Use one, use both, bonus points for starting and finishing with one or both. Have fun!

Way back in the 1980s, I was a fan of A-Ha. Not because of the Pretty Boy image or unique partially animated video for Take On Me of the time, but the harmonies on their 1985 debut album Hunting High and Low.
I had it on cassette and wore out my copy in the car listening to it continuously, especially turning up the volume for The Sun Always Shines on TV, the first track on side 2.
Those were the days when music was music, not obscene shouting over a bungalow beat (all one level, nothing on top). I used to sing along, remembering all the words.
These days, they are all classed as golden oldies, and the younger generation seem surprised when I can still sing along, knowing all the words on ‘new releases’, as I remember them from the first time round!
For SoCS, am I allowed to add images? The writing was all in one hit though, so I hope I haven’t broken the rules!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    You’re right! Music back then was good music. I always liked the song and video of “Take On Me”. … I put photos in my SOC posts sometimes, so you’re good to go! 🙂

    The rules are more like suggestions. I’m always adding pictures or, more commonly, videos. It’s all good.

    It comes as a great shock to some kids that their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. were ever children themselves.
