So Near, and Yet So Far #socs

The secret woids for today are "near" and "far." I’ll let Grover explain…

Ever since I read the prompts, I’ve been thinking about this song…

I know, it says "close" instead of "near." "Close" and "near" are synonyms, while "near" and "far" are antonyms. Remember learning about those in grade school?

I’m really stretching it here: I really have no idea where I’m going with this. And that’s all right, because it’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday, brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. So far, taking time off for the videos, it’s been about four minutes, so I’m near the end of my time. Enjoy this commercial from Ballantine beer, featuring longtime New York Yankees and This Week In Baseball announcer Mel Allen. How ’bout that?

      1. Yes, I think I did. I was just turning 5 when Sesame Street first aired. By the time I had kids the show had taken on a twist I didn’t really care for. Then Barney came out and my oldest was hooked. My youngest couldn’t stand Barney. LOL!


  1. I watched so much Sesame Street when my children were growing up. I am very familiar with this particular lesson by Grover. ๐Ÿ˜ Frankie Valli was a hard act to beat – and I love this particular song. I am not familiar with Ballentine beer, but hubby recognized the name.


    1. If you watched “Frasier,” you’d recognize Ballantine as the beer Martin Crane always drank.

      I used to watch Sesame Street with my brother, who’s almost 20 years younger than I, and that’s where I saw it, I think. Frankie’s a classic.
