Where Have All the Friendships Gone...

Time marches on.

Or so I have been told.

The proof is in the footprints it leaves upon the soul.

Friendships, like Time, march onward too.

They last as long as there is a need and then...

They too...   

Are gone.

Yes, Time marches on...

But it leaves behind Memories that will last a lifetime

Of the Friendships that helped shape us.

That helped make us.

Who we are Today.

Calgon... Take Me Away!

Remember that commercial slogan?

Or how about...

The Uncola...was that for 7-Up?

I'm a pepper, he's a pepper, wouldn't you like to be a pepper too?

Hey! It's Burger Chef and Jeff....

and Weeble Wobble but they don't fall down...

And they'll tell 2 friends and they'll tell 2 friends and they'll tell 2 friends... and so on and so on and so on...

Does anyone else in the world remember these catchy advertising slogans other than myself?

Sometimes I feel like there is something seriously wrong with my brain.

I can remember somethis as obscure as the tune to HR PUFFINSTUFF ( you know the one with Jimmie and the magic flute and Witchie Poo?)

or the name of the boy who was the lead kid in Sigmund and the Sea Monster (that would be Johnny Whitaker and he was also the little boy who played Jody in Family Affair with is twin sister Buffy who had a big sister named...wait for it... Sissy! And the Brian Keith was their dad... )

I know.

I can remember the birthday if kid's I haven't seen in nearly 40 years ...
But I can't remember the password for half the places I have to go online.

Like the credit card payment sites.
Or the mortgage payment site.
And the blogging site where you can meet up with other people like yourself, only smarter and more together obviously as they can actually LOG ON!

And then there is the online access to TheBusyFamily medical records...

See what I mean.

There is this thing on my Crackberry...
a password keeper.

It's great!
It's a miracle!

It can't help me one single bit ...
I can't remember the password!
