Chim-Chim-Cheree

 

It doesn’t happen often but it occurs from time to time.  Thoughts of all sorts can be prompted by a mere mention of a song.  

 

ActiveRain friend Nick Vandekar shows us this can be true when he shares well-known tunes as well as not-so-familiar ditties.  Isn’t ditty an interesting word?  I digress.   

 

For some reason, the song Chim-Chim-Cheree came to mind the other day.   I wasn’t having a Mary Poppins moment, mind you.  But the song made me think.  



Fires in our area and throughout much of the West are in the news.  Fires and chimneys are obviously related but there’s more to it than that.  Heat and flames are two more words that can be associated with the topic.  Those can lead me down another path(the lack of a suitable tour guide isn’t the only way for me to go off-track).  

 

Countless topics and the thoughts keep on coming.  Never stopping.  But then there is another verse.  Or is it a different song?  

 

The many relationships of chim-chim-cheree can bring forth much at times. 

 

Feelings and inklings.  Situations from the past as well as the present.  Of course,  the future plays a role.  Remembrances and memories-in-the-making not colliding but happening for a reason.  Chim-cher-oo!

Sharon Lee - ponderlust like wanderlust requires no guidance.  In fact, it might be the essence of a random activity.  

Kathy Streib - cue the film score!  

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - each day/moment brings a surprise of sorts.

I think that song, sung by Dick Van Dyke, was one of carefree joy and it makes me smile...

Happy Friday evening and I hope you make the weekend special Michael Jacobs

Michael find your timing interesting or strange? On such a sad day like today last thing I would think of songs like this, but you know I am strange too, Endre

Morning Michael.

I liked what Nick chose for today. Certain songs pop up in my memory bank from time to time.  Chim-Chim-Cheree is not one of them..... :-)

Endre Barath, Jr. - I am sorry you did not appreciate the topic I chose for this post.  Thank you for your comment and for "liking" it  anyway.   

James Dray - Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 has a real talent for pulling together themes.  My inability to tag members in a post is just another glitch I currently have with the format.  It's really a minor annoyance.

Michael Jacobs - The photos and the fires of CA, WA, OR are now part of my local news. North Texas Fire Fighters join the many others helping to put the fires out. Here's a sample of what I'm reading:

"More reinforcements from North Texas are on the way to the west coast to help with the dire wildfire situation."

"A Fort Worth Fire Department spokesperson confirmed they were planning to deploy eight firefighters and two trucks to California, where fire officials there said Friday wildfires have burned more than 3.1 million acres this year."

"On Friday afternoon, Dallas Fire-Rescue deployed 13 wildland firefighters to assist with the wildfires for at least two weeks. Three firefighters from Flower Mound started heading towards California as well on Friday morning."

May you and all in need breathe safely and be spared. My thoughts are with all of you.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - support from others in critical times can be quite healing.  In many ways.  Thank you to those from Flower Mound, Dallas, Fort Worth and other parts of Texas in addition to many other places who are putting forth such an effort.  It is appreciated.

So, you and Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 are teaming up?  He posts about Mary Poppins and you further ponder it?  I like it.  I hope you have a fun weekend my friend!

Right before the barrage of fires broke out in our area, we had our chimney cleaned. Always take good care to ensure the flue is clean and clear of creosote before the burning season. For now, with heavy smoke in the air, and the number of people evacuating their homes,  the thought of having a fire at home seems quite remote.

The news of those wild stories are hard to watch Michael, let alone what the residents are facing. It's hard to imagine. However, on another note... won't be able to get that song out my mind today!

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - proper home maintenance is a part of the plan but nature plays a role that is often "the unknown".

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - so many are impacted and in so many different places in our country.

For me, it was Dick Van Dyke that came to mind. Such a great entertainer!

Sharon Tara - when I think of Dick Van Dyke, I am reminded of the genius of his namesake 1960s television show,  the ensemble cast, the writing and the many  laughs.

Michael, 2020 has been a year we probably all want to forget, and hope rain comes soon to the West Coast and puts out all the fires.
