Know what I did today? Go ahead, ask me...I have been in the computer office most of the day. And I'm going to tell you how I spent the day in just a bit. But first. After going out side to a perfectly hot horrid day, (83 by 8 am humidity was gaggingly high) which turned my butt right back around to enjoy the cool and so I did a little housework. For breakfast we had dried sausage (you have to be from the South I think, to appreciate this...)home made Belgium Waffles and I put on a fresh pot of coffee. The pot of coffee I had put on at 5:30 was long gone by 10. You know, we're up before the chickens, and they're not quite as stupid as I was lead to believe. We don't have any chickens, that would be taking the farm life a little to far to suit me. But our neighbors who live in the vicinity of Angelus Road do and we heard the roosters getting up and announcing sunrise somewhere around 7:30. They announced again around noon, just in case you didn't get that first message. When they began to cackle and crow at 3 I was well away from them, sitting at the computer. Earlier this week my pal Lee got all smart and put up a playlist. Lots of my pals have a play list. For anyone who doesn't know what a playlist is, it's a music box. It's a mighty fine little musicbox of which I am most proud. When Lee told me how easy it was I began to whine...no, I didn't whine...well not exactly...I told her I'd tried once before but for the life of me couldn't get the darn thing to work. So she sent me the instructions, step by step instructions...two pages of instructions. Single spaced. Font 8. As I'm reading this over I keep hearing her say "it's really simple, just time consuming." Yep, it was time consuming. As I mentioned, we had breakfast this morning, and it's a good thing, because I never did get around to fixing supper. Or lunch. Mac wandered in every little bit and asked me if I was done yet and I think the glares that went his way soon convinced him to fix a sandwich and leave me alone. The hardest part was trying to remember all my favorite singers, songs and the titles (or at least a close proximity). I found out that there's more than a little red on my neck. I actually love Country Music...and when I found Roy Clark's (of Hee Haw fame) rendition of Malaguena I nearly fell over! It is the most beautiful version I had ever heard and my lp which it was on has been gone for years! He plays a fine 12 string guitar, I know because I once saw him play. It was the first time I had ever heard Malaguena by him, it was 1977, I believe. You know it's on there! So putting this music box together has brought back many memories for me and even though I'm tired, it's after 11 pm, I just had to tell you about it. If you don't have one, you must get one...well, you don't "must" but you should. We can compare music tastes. I won't laugh at yours if you don't laugh at mine.
