Memories - 'The Way I Am'

Are you like me? Are you experiencing certain memory lapses that seem to be a universal issue for my generation, the aging baby boomers? (Some of you, dear Blog friends, are far too young to identify with the following - but, this is what you can look forward to - I bet you can't wait!)
Some friends sent me the following video clips this week. I really enjoyed them - because I could (sadly) identify with so many experiences described in the songs. Now I'm thinking that maybe the folks who sent the videos really shouldn't be considered my friends, but that's all right because I can't remember who sent them, anyway!
As I thought about the video clips, and laughed at my frailties, I kept hearing Barbara Streisand singing,  "Memories, da dah da da da da daaahh....", but I seem to have forgotten the lyrics... so, I created my own:

The Way I Am
(a Baby Boomer's version of 'The Way We Were')
 
Memories,
Lost in corners of my mind,
Misty, shrouded memories,
I don't know why I'm here.

Memories
Are so fleeting  and so vague
I remember things from years ago
But not from yesterday.....

Well, you know how it is. Why did I come into this room? Where did I put the mail? Why did I start this blog post? Oh, yeah...here are the video clips. I hope you enjoy them!

  3. That first one was HILARIOUS. Sadly, I too can relate just a "little" more than I care to admit! She nailed it pretty right on.
