Can You Tell Me How To Get… #socs

I heard the prompt "above" and "below" and immediately thought of Sesame Street

I used to watch Sesame Street with my then baby brother. My then baby brother is now 45 and towers above me, and has two sons who look like they tower above him.

There are times I miss flying. Sometimes I’d get a window seat and look out the window at the cities, towns and countryside below me. I’m surprised to see just how well laid-out farmland is into squares and rectangles. That was during the day, of course; at night, everything was dark. Sometimes you’d fly over a highway that was lit up, and then a town where there would be some lights so you could see what was there, but mostly just a lot of dark, with maybe a little light sprouting out of nowhere.

Then there were times we’d fly above the clouds, and you’d look down and see nothing but white. The sky up there is the brightest blue I’ve ever seen. To land, of course, we’d have to fly through the clouds, sometimes for more than a couple of minutes before descending below the clouds. That’s when you’d see what the weather was like, whether it was raining or just overcast.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about Pall Mall cigarettes. Outstanding! And… they are mild!

"Over, under, around and through…" Would have been nice if it was "above, below, arouund and through…" Oh well…

  1. I like the concept of flying if I’m comfortable, but on airlines now I avoid it. If I had someone paying first class for me it would be nice, but still the hassles involved in flying maybe aren’t worth it.

  2. I don’t remember Sesame Street as a kid, just Captain kangaroo and Romper Room. But I enjoyed watching Sesame Street with my kids. I’d enjoy flying more if I didn’t have to be on so much Dramamine. The dipping to the side still gets to me.


    1. My grammar school covered grades K through 8, and the primary kids (K through 2) would watch Sesame Street in school. By the time it started in late ’69 I was in 8th grade. I think you said you were a year ahead of me, so you were probably in high school when it started and wouldn’t have much of a chance to see it.

      1. I’m glad it was still around to watch with my kids. Their father and I would fill each other in on the romance between Maria and Luis.
