Thanks to Jim Adams, for hosting Song Lyric Sunday. Shall we get right into the Casa Cuckoo news? Things are going okay. No major dramas, so that’s good. I seem to have picked up a problem with swelling and numbness as well as bad circulation in my fingertips, so that’s not so good. I have an appointment with my Primary Care Doctor on Thursday, so we’ll see what he has to say. I’ll be visiting the “Vampires” at the lab Monday or Tuesday before the appointment. I do have nerve damage in my right arm, plus herniated and bulging discs in my C-Spine, so those could be factors. The fact that it is Winter and it gets chilly even in SoCal could be a factor. Diabetes has also been mentioned, but I’m not having other symptoms and my sugar was fine at my last appointment, about three or four months ago, and I’m sure they’ll check it again when I go to the lab.
I did have one interesting encounter this past week with The Quarter Lady. If you followed my “Adventures” series during lockdown, you’ll remember her. I only had one load of clothes to dry. I had a single and a five. I didn’t want to get $5 in quarters when I only needed $2. So I asked The Quarter Lady if she had change for a $5, explaining the situation. She didn’t have the change, so she gave me a dollar and told me to give it to her next time.😲😲 I’m used to that at the Market, but The Quarter Lady? It was truly shocking!
Time is still in short supply. Or maybe my Time Management needs to be adjusted. There never seems to be enough time to do the things I want to do, and I’m usually brain fried by the time I’ve done all the Have Tos. I’ll get it sorted eventually, and be back to posting and commenting on your posts more. Anyway… let’s get to the music 🎶
Prompt words this week – Space, Planets, Aliens
There were lots of songs popping into my head for this prompt. I finally decided to go with Children Of The Sun performed by Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs. The song is from the 1979 album of the same title. Writing credit goes to Billy Thorpe and Spencer Proffer, who was the record’s producer.
There’s not a lot of information about this song. Not that I could find anyway. It peaked at #39 on Billboard in September of 1979. I remember it being played pretty frequently on the local Rock radio station, usually later in the evening. Most of the people I hung around with had it on a mixtape though, so we could listen to it anytime.
I bought a cd of Children Of The Sun… Revisited in the 90s and didn’t really like any of the other songs, but Children Of The Sun was as I remembered it.
People of the Earth can you hear me? Came a voice from the sky on that magical night
And in the colors of a thousand sunsets They traveled through the world on a silvery light
The people of the Earth stood waiting Watching as the ships came one by one Setting fire to the sky as they landed Carrying to the world Children Of The Sun
All at once came a sound from the inside
Then a beam made of light hit the ground
Everyone felt the sound of their heartbeat
Every Man – Every Woman – Every Child
They passed the limits of imagination
Through the doors – to a world – of another time
On the journey of a million lifetimes
With the Children Of The Sun – They started their climb
No more gravity, nothing holding them down
Floating endlessly, as their ship leaves the ground
Through the walls of time – at the speed of light
Fly the crystal ships on their celestial flight
On their celestial flight.
