For the last 5 or 6 days when my mind is not actively engaged in some serious? thought I hear Jimmy Deans "PT-109" and I hum or sing along. I don't know where this is coming from, I haven't heard the song for more than fifty years.  It was recorded in 62-63? I seem to know most of the words. Maybe if I tried to play the tune on my banjo it would leave of embarrassment.  I sometimes have the same trouble with  "do a deer" from Sound of Music.  frown

Sorry Owen, I was using the musical term "do" not the animal "doe"

I guess doing a deer would be probiimatic

Some folks get a tune "in their head", and cannot get rid of it for months. An affection becomes an affliction. This happened to one of my co-workers. It was one of Carly Simon's tunes about going north and seeing the a Northern Lights. I hope this post does not "trigger" this problem in another BHO member.

And if anyone wonders where that whole "doe, a deer" thing comes from, the musical notes in Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian are DO, RE, MI, FA, SOL, LA, SI, DO. It's called the "solfege" system. Changing "SI" to "TI" happened about 100 years ago in English-speaking countries.

Patient: "Doctor, I can't stop hearing "Green Green Grass of Home" in my head.

Doctor: "You have 'Tom Jones Syndrome'"/

Patient" "Is it rare?"

Doctor: "It's not unusual."

(Someone suggested planting the earworm in cyclists. At the start line of a mass ride, sing out the opening line, "It's not unusual!" just before they start off. Cruel, "unusual" punishment.)
