Back To School

School starts September 2nd, the Tuesday after Labor Day and there is much to be done for us both. A few things we have managed to take care of online. We ordered some really cute clothes for her that should be arriving here real soon.

We got most of the school supplies that we are sure are going to be needed. We won’t know what the rest is until we go to Back To School Night where we will get her schedule, meet her teachers and get the supply lists that hopefully will only have a few surprises on them that we aren’t all ready prepared with and for.

We also took care of the guitar parts needs so that she will have herĀ martin om-28 acoustic guitar in best possible shape for her first year of guitar lessons in public school. She basically taught herself how to play and has had several people teach her a few things here and there but she has never had a formal class and is excited to be in a class that she will enjoy instead of one of the core classes that she finds so boring as well as challenging.


Leo the Lion

In the next couple of weeks it will be the start of the astrological sign, Leo. This period goes from July 23 until August 22, so if you were born between these dates, your “sign” would be Leo.

The best thing about a Leo is that they are strong and self confident, often a leader. My brother is a Leo. He always seems to know the right thing to do and I trust him.

The Lion, Leo

Seamless Shape Wear

Funny how sisters become so much alike even way after they have grown up and been on their own for a good amount of time. The reason I say this is that I am always on the look out for the best bra for my shape and size while my one sister is always on the look out for seamless shape wear. And when ever either one of us is out and about we seem to take the time and see if there is something that the other would like the look and feel of.

I got so used to trying on seamless shape wear for my sister that I now am starting to notice how much a stupid little seem can irate my skin, something that I’ve never felt or noticed before. So now I am always looking out for under garments that are seamless and I have my sister to thank for that. – BTW – I am being sarcastic here sis, I know you will be reading this!

Not Impressed

It just dawned on me that my current contract with my cell phone provider will finally be done and over with come the end of June of this year. I’m going to have to get busy and see what I sweet deals I can come up with in order to get a better cell phone, at better rates and hopefully much better coverage. I haven’t been impressed with Verizon since the day that I signed on the dotted line all most 2 years ago.

Cell Phones have come a long, long way in the past decade or so. I don’t need anything fancy, just a phone that I can text on, make and receive phone calls and maybe use it to take a picture every now and then. No Smart phone needed here folks. I’d be happy with an old flip phone but they don’t make them with a keyboard for texting. Butt calls are so embarrassing.

Takamine Jumbo Cutaway

The Takamine GJ72CE-12 G Series jumbo Cutaway 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar that I just ordered online will arrive well before I need to get it ready for shipping out to my nephew in Arizona. This will be first summer that he will be spending in their new home, so many thousands of miles away from the rest of the family that has a traditional Memorial Day Weekend gathering.

I want to wrap it up nicely and ship it to him as soon as possible as to avoid having to rush at the last minute, as I usually do. It’s a good thing that this company doesn’t charge me the shipping and handling costs to get it here to me.

A nice looking piece of work, wouldn’t you say. Next on my list is going to be to find a good priced peavey classic 20 amp that will be able to blow the paint off of the walls!
