This is my response to the earlier Flashback Track Friday prompt, where today we are given Operator by Jim Croce and asked:

If you could call anyone, past, present or future, who would it be?

I have been waiting for this moment, the highlight of my year. A chat to my great-great-grandchild, Danny. In my time, Danny has not yet been born, but through the miraculous invention of the Jumptime App, I am able to speak with him. In his time, the year is 2208, and the reason for my call is his special day, his coming-of-age, his eighteenth birthday. A celebratory phone call from his great-great-grandad.


The Cat Lady

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of of 4 June 2021, kit.

A cat-loving woman called Kit,
Had ten pets and was forced to admit,
That despite her demeanour,
To use household cleaner,
The place they all shared smelled of 🤣.

Reblog: Flashback Track Friday #19 Operator

KK just published our Friday prompt on the music blog we share, Songshine Sounds. She finishes up with an excellent question, I already have a piece of flash in mind so I’ll have to see if I can’t write something down in thew next few hours.

I can’t let this one go without saying a word about the song. I’ve never heard of this guy before, I don’t think he ever made it over here, so the track is totally new to me. I loved it – right up my street. But what about that ‘tache? Still, I suppose in 1972 we all had them (except I was four)!

Welcome once again to Flashback Track Friday. Each week, either KK or Mister Bump will present a song to you, and out of that song, will prompt you with a question.

Philadelphia-born folk and rock singer-songwriter, Jim Croce, produced five studio albums and numerous singles during his brief, seven year career. Today’s track was inspired by his time in the military, watching men line up to use the telephone booth, hoping to speak to their loved ones, hoping those Dear John break-up letters weren’t true.
