Pepper Me Timbers

Pepper Me Timbers

“It was twenty years ago today,
Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play.”
--the Beatles

Woke
up from
a nap feeling
all peppery & shit--
sneezing, with black spots
in front of my eyes;

putting me 
in mind of Pepper
Flicks, like SALT N’ PEPPER
with Peter Lawford
& Sammy Davis Jr.

or sexy Angie,
Sgt “Pepper” Anderson,

POLICE WOMAN.

I sometimes get those black spots as well. As long as the mind clears up.

I'm always amazed at the random memories that pop up.

Ah, dipping into the past as we tend to do sometimes and coming up with all sorts of pepper. Think I'm about to sneeze.

It's amazing to read all the different connotations with the word pepper! I can't say I know what Pepper Flicks are but I do remember Peter Lawford and Sammy Davis Jr. Not sure about ' sexy Angie, Sgt “Pepper” Anderson,POLICE WOMAN'!

I have to say that some of that music happened a bit before my time... but I love your memories.

Those are some oldies, Policewoman! I haven't thought of that in quite a while. It does go well with Sgt. Pepper

...and then there's Pepper Martin -- L-O-N-G before my time! (and yours) I laughed with the first reading... and the second. First rate!

Smiling I am....oh, I remember that sexy Police Woman. I think she was on television about the same time as the heart throbs Starsky and Hutch! :) And maybe Hart to Hart too? And then Remington Steele came a bit later? Oh my....you've got the wheels turning in my head to those early day "cop / crime shows" :) Showin' my age. LOVE this one, Glenn!
