Fandango’s Flashback Friday – April 1st

It has been a while since I have done this, but I thought I would play along today. Fandango takes us back to a former post on this day in a past year with his Flashback Friday

. This was a fun little post I did for “retro” back in 2019

Far Out Man

There once was a man named Stan

Who thought up a wild and crazy plan

A life of retro would be

Fun and fancy free

So he decked out his old panel van

A Little Nonsense Now and Then…

A little boy named Ben got dirty

His mother had just turned thirty

This doesn’t matter now

It’s not the where or the how

But I wont let this poem get wordy


I am doing some “speed reading” and not many comments. With everything going on I have not had time or energy to do much on WP… so I am trying like crazy to “catch up.” I apologize for not taking the time to comment like I usually do, but I have got to do something to speed things up and I don’t want to miss any of what you all write. So, I do not hate your writing, I am only silent for times sake. If I do that through this weekend I may just be able to get back to “normal” next month. Thanks everyone… I still love your words!

The Shampoo Rap

My first thought was my shampoo bottle in the shower… but I didn’t feel like writing another fiction piece. I toyed with the idea of a limerick

There once was a man named Lou

Who used only Suave shampoo

… but I didn’t get very far with it and my concentration kept wandering to the very early 90s. So Gerardo won… and consequently most of us lost (I mean have you really listened to the lyrics of this, talk about a sexist song), but it was a catchy hook.
