OUR DEMENTIA DEFENSES
We pitched aluminum pots,
‘Cause aluminum seeps into brains….
Causing them to misfire
Losing memory of relatives’ names.
We always had our puzzles
And I started a blog…
That dementia “bug” can’t cut a rug
If we stay away from the fog!
Some memory loss is natural,
Dementia strikes fear…
We pray we may remember each other
As long as we’re living here!
It’s hard to believe now, but there was time, just after the movie was released that Star Wars was not a big deal. I know by the time the movie came to my town in 1977 it was already a phenomenon. Going to see it was the first time that there was a line for the theatre that I could remember. But when the movie was released it was only in 40 theatres nationwide.
It’s interesting to see these reviews before the movie made the splash that it did.
It’s interesting to note that to the Movie execs, “Damnation Alley” was the new big SF film for 1977 and “Star Wars” was the quirky little movie that nobody gave much of a chance. The ability of Hollywood execs to pick the winners hasn’t changed much
THE CALLOW KID
Seeing relationships shallow,
The Lid’s unlikely to mellow…
Burned by the fact
He cannot act
He offers what no one will swallow!
Denied and heard folks rejecting…
He too stands off,
Until someone coughs,
Prevented from interjecting..
