Welcome to my blog. Thanks for coming! One day I hope my little piece of internet real estate will be home to lots of family photos, pictures of my scrapbook and card art, with some random thoughts and memories posted on a somewhat regular basis. Mostly my world is very predictable, but occasionally some excitement will find me, so visit often. Who knows what useful (or useless) information you may find here.

Name That Tune

"I can name that tune in TWO notes!"  That was a fun show back in the 70s.  Saturday night at DJ's house found us playing a similar game.  Tony Orlando was hosting an infomercial for Time Life for a CD collection of "romantic songs" from the 70s and 80s.  As a clip would come up on the screen, we would all try to name the artist.  The name of the song would be listed, and a few seconds later the artist's name would show on the screen.  Yeah, sounds like a lame attempt at entertainment on a Saturday night, but it was fun to see who could call out the name first.  I rather enjoyed the trip down memory lane. 

Friday night I took the plunge and purchased a treadmill. My mom has one at her house that I could use, but that would involve too much planning (i.e. getting dressed and driving over there).  I put it together on Saturday before going to DJ's, and had my first workout Sunday night after work.  I use the word "workout" very loosely here. After ten minutes I was pooped.  What's up with that?  I can walk for a long time!  Maybe it was the incline.  Maybe it was the speed.  At any rate, I'm good with 10 minutes, and I'll build from there. 

A little funny thing to share:  Friday morning I was getting my oil changed at Akins.  They have this great little "internet bar", so I pulled up a chair and proceeded to check Facebook and work on my homestead in Frontierville.  (If you don't know what it is, don't even ask!)  There's a guy sitting beside me, and we're both busy doing our internet thing.  The service guy walks in and says "Bueller?"  "Bueller?"  Fortunately the guy sitting next to me understood when I started laughing, and together we just cracked up.  (Again, if you don't get it... never mind..)  We had a nice belly laugh over it. 

This is shaping up to be a busy week.  Danette is setting sail today for an anniversary cruise, and I'll be working for her while she's gone.  It comes at a good time for me, since I used my Danette stash to buy the treadmill.  Now I can start adding back to my little mad money envelope.  There is always something to come along and take my money, but I try to keep that money set apart, to save for special occasions, or something that I wouldn't ordinarily purchase. 

That being said, I suppose it's time to get up and get busy working.  It will be a long work-day indeed.

  1. Yep, having the incline on a treadmill makes a world of difference - congrats on taking the plunge to buy that!

    While I don't go on Facebook very often, I do know the Bueller reference! :D
