My Brain on Cold Medicine

From Kellogg's of Battle Creek.....

Come and listen to a story ‘bout a man named Jed
Poor mountaineer barely kept his family fed…..
Then one day he was shootin’ at some food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin’ crude.
Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea……

The question I’ve been asking myself is, WHY? Why do I have the theme song from the Beverly Hillbillies running through my head? But now, all of a sudden, in a brief flash of brilliance, I know the reason!

Granny’s cold cure!

For those of us suffering through colds and flu,  I think what we really need is a good swig of Granny’s "cold cure". Granny made her famous cold medicine from corn squeezins’ in a still at the back of their mansion and after a good belt, your cold would be gone in a week to ten days.

I’m guessing my subconscious is telling me to get out the jug. If my cold isn’t gone, at least I’ll be happier when I cough!

Now that I've solved the mystery of why I've been humming a TV theme from the 1960's, I can move on to something more current.

Mary Tyler Moore Show
Mary and Rhoda
Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Who can take a nothing day,
and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it's you girl, and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it
Love is all around, no need to waste it
You can have the town, why don't you take it
You're gonna make it after all

Mary and Rhoda always make me feel better!  And Lou, and Ted, and Murray.

Somehow, reality shows and crime investigation aren't something to watch when you're not feeling well.  Like comfort food, we need comfort TV and a bit of nostalgia.

Bundle up, grab a jug, and watch a few oldies.  You'lll feel better in no time.
