Diggin' The Oldies

Tonight I was out in the P-car again. As is usual on Wednesday night. Boring, but not confusing.

Yeah, I can do that.

In two hours I checked two zones and drove about eighteen miles. Mostly I stayed about eight or nine miles an hour but once I got up to almost 20.

Wow.

So there I was, driving around in the car eating candy orange slices and listening to the Greg Kihn show on the radio. He was playing some good old rock, like he always does. I was digging it and it was helping me stay alert, which is good. It's easy to get bored and sleepy out there on the calm nights.

Of course, at one point he played "Jailbreak" by Thin Lizzy. One of my faves but the one I want to hear the least while I'm driving around the outside of a prison with a shotgun, if you know what I mean. As soon as I heard those opening chords I got a chill and said "Oh snap!"

Sgt Uncle T and I are close to the same age (but I'm a bit younger and way cuter, just in case you were wondering) and we like the same era of music. And Goosey isn't far behind, so he is able to keep up with us.

Except one evening I mentioned the song "The Troglodyte" by The Jimmy Castor Bunch and neither one of them remembered it. That song was one of my favorites from way back when.

So I looked around You tube and found the video. Way back before anybody was really making music videos, they made this one. You can see it here: The troglodyte. Check it out!

I have had so much fun looking up old and weird stuff on You tube that I get lost in there for half a day sometimes.

Now if I could just get somebody to pay me for that......

And tomorrow we have a twofer! It is both Plush Animal Lovers Day and National Chocolate Day! Let's not get confused and have alot of plush chocolate animals made up. That would be a friggin' mess!

  2. I didn't realize that Greg Kinh was syndicated. His morning show comes out of KFOX in San Jose, CA. When I was staying in the car wash I'd listen to the first hour of his show before entering the land of nod.

  4. Boring is good sometimes and I have a tendency to get lost when using/viewing videos on youtube myself.

  5. Misty- If we did that I'd end up with two wedding anniversaries a year.

    Joe- Ummm... why were you sleeping in a car wash?

    #1 Canadian Fan- I swiped his state ID card and scanned it. Remarkable resemblance, eh?

    Just Plain Tired- I'm easily sidetracked on youtube.
