IT JUST ISN'T ALL BIRDS & FLOWERS WE HAVE IN OUR FRONT YARD:))
A sudden & unexpected rain shower had me scrambling around outside in my pajamas this morning putting up Jeep windows & quickly closing shed doors, etc. It was a short heavy rain but at least I got to do my running around in a new pair of Rockports. I’m sure I was quite a sight with my blue top, red bottoms & brown shoes. All wet I might add!!
Little Cora follows me around so close now in the mornings that she practically rides around on my shoes. She knows there is a good chance of going for a ride in the Jeep with a snack at the other end. This morning turned out to be no exception & sure enough, wasn’t long & me & the Motor were splitting a Tuna sub at our local Subway shop in town. And for sure, tomorrow morning that little Mouse will be riding around on my shoes again:))
I went through a time warp this afternoon. Am currently reading the book, ‘Letter To A Christian Nation.’ Sat down at 1:10 with my book & minutes later woke up at 4 in the afternoon. Now, how did that happen!!
Some long time readers may remember the tragic deaths of fellow RV Blogger's Bruce & Margie last October. Had an email this morning from Karyn at Wild Blue Yonder saying the young fellow driving the car which killed Bruce & Margie while out walking, has been arrested again!! You can read why at this link....ARRESTED AGAIN!!
For any full time RV’ers there was a point in their lives when serious decisions had to be made & large steps taken. A transition from sticks & bricks living to a mobile lifestyle had to be waded through & many problems carefully navigated through. Check out Cathy’s thoughts on all that at, IT'S UP TO YOU.
Noticed Canadian Tire had Black & Decker cordless drills on sale for $34.95 on Friday. That’s down from the usual $99. My present Jobmate drill is 8 years old & the battery is feeling it’s age. A drill is not something I use a lot but it sure is handy when I do need it. Not made for a contractor but works fine for a little guy like me at home or in the rig. I liked the fact that the battery is totally interchangeable with the new weed whacker/grass trimmer I bought about a month ago. That gives me a total of 3 batteries & 2 chargers now. Love the new trimmer by the way & use it to cut our small grass areas instead of the mower. Isn’t it nice when you purchase something that turns out to be a ‘right on’ decision:))
Mentioned in Friday night’s post about downloading some tunes but didn’t mention the name of the tunes. Commenter Susy C was going to have a look at the groups. From GROOVE ARMADA I downloaded AT THE RIVER (Live Version) & INSIDE MY MIND (BLUE SKIES) 'At The River' is based on Patti Page's 'Old Cape Cod' but is an entirely different take on that song although you do here Patti Page repeating the line, "If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air
Quaint little villages here and there." It was the trombone coming in that really hooked me on this one. 'Inside My Mind' is based on Irving Berlin's old standard, 'Blue Skies.' It is the man's clear tenor voice repeating the words, "Blue Skies Smiling at Me, Nothing But Blue Skies Do I See" that give me the chills in this tune. These two songs are not versions of the old standards, they just use some of the phrases of the old songs in a very pleasing, innovative & interesting sort of way. I just love the huge amounts of talent that goes into ambient music.
From Moodorama I downloaded SPACE COWBOY. This is a real tow tapper that grabbed my attention right from the beginning with it's totally excellent rhythmic beat. The almost slow motion drone of a man's deep voice caught me by surprise because it is so different. Loved it. And then the chorus of AahAahaAha's kicked in & that totally nailed this whole song for me. Also downloaded Moodorama's low & slow WEIRD LOVE. I just liked this one because I found it pleasant & relaxing. I should also add here that if you do not have a good sound system with your computer you will not appreciate the full sound quality of any of this music. All of the above tunes are based on heavy electronic bass & drums which I happen to love. Unfortunately, with just computer speakers you will not get the full impact of the bass oriented instruments. Our computer sound here is run through an Altec Lansing stereo system complete with sub woofer so I can really get this old sunroom rocking if I want to:))
Remember years ago if we wanted to listen to a groups music we either had to just buy the album & take our chances or go to a record store, select a record & then go into a little booth to listen to it. Sure glad that Dinosaur age is over. So nice to preview a group’s music from the comfort of one’s own home with just a few clicks of a mouse here & there. I’m kind of thinking of recommending one piece of music at the end of each post everyday & including my thoughts on why I like it. Kind of like Groaner's Corner. We’ll see………..
A new teacher was trying to make use
of her psychology courses. She started her class by saying, “Everyone who thinks they're stupid, stand up!”
After a few seconds, Little Larry
stood up. The teacher said, “Do you think you're stupid, Larry?”
“No, ma'am, but I hate to see you
standing there all by yourself!”
