Tuesday musings – Time flies.

close up planner page

Time is on my mind this morning as we prepare to turn the calendar page to the second half of 2015.  There is also much chatter about today’s “Leap Second” and the question of how to spend that extra second that you gleaned today after scientists added it to help keep the nation’s clocks in sync with the earth’s rotation.  Those same scientists also hope the Leap Second will not cause a mini Y2K.  That statement caused me to reflect on Y2K and all the preparations  at home and at work.  At home, there was food and water storage preparation, topping off the gas tank, charging the cellphone.  At work, our law firm got an entirely new computer system as there were concerns our former one would just crash and burn.  We were all unscathed then, mercifully, after millions, perhaps billions of dollars was spent to ensure the transition from 1999 to 2000 went smoothly.

But what really transcended me back in time this morning was hearing  the resurgence of “The Faygo Song” on the radio.  That commercial speaks to childhood days, long gone, but fondly remembered and was all over the airwaves decades ago.  I hadn’t heard the song in years and found myself singing along to all the words to this 70s commercial, embarrassing even myself.  For those e-pals who follow my blog, but are not from Detroit, here is a link to that song:


You, too, will feel like a kid again, plus you’ll have an earworm the rest of today.

Enjoy your Leap Second.

About Linda Schaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub

    That was unkind putting the Faygo song in my head. Now all day I will hear and sing it.

    Now that’s funny – it is a little infectious isn’t it? Did you know the words to it too Marge?

    I think Faygo is bringing the song back again … I heard it this morning on WWJ just after the national news. I used to like it. I didn’t know you were in a convent Ann Marie. My neighbor down the street, Sandy Zomparelli, was in a convent as well … many years, then met someone and married and had two boys.
