Just about three years ago (January 29, 2016), the prompt for Just Jot It January was “serendipity.” I’m happy to say that Jill, better knoqwn as J-Dub from J-Dub’s Grin and bear it (hi, Jill!) has chosen it again.
Back then, I wrote about The Serendipity Singers, a folk singing group from the Denver area who was popular in the ’60’s, as was folk music and the singers that sing it. I figured to just post a link to it (which I have, just above) and be done with it, but in looking at that post, it appears that Google is throwing a 500 – Internal error and the playlist that used to be there has been replaced by a string of computer vomit that I’m supposed to pass on to their highly-trained monkeys. While I’m off doing that, here are the first two songs from that playlist, “Don’t Let The Rain Come Down (Crooked Little Man)” and “Beans In My Ears.”
And now a word from Dippity-Do styling gel.
I have naturally very curly hair with a huge cowlick in front, which is hell to maintain and an embarrassment when I was in high school. A friend of mine, who had a similar predicament, said the way he handled it was to put lots of Dippity-Do in his hair and comb it straight back before bed, then comb it out the next day. Idiotic as it sounds, it actually works. Temporarily, anyway. A few years later I learned that I could just brush it straight back, which fixed the cowlick and a lot of the curl. Of course, when it got too long I looked a little like Albert Einstein…
(I would have included a picture of Einstein here, but the rules for posting the one I had considered are so convoluted that I decided just to link to the Wikipedia article with the picture.)
