The pedal power 4×4 at musicians friend that I ordered last week came in today. I hope that my nephew will be impressed with this Voodoo Lab Pedal Power that he will find under the Christmas tree come Christmas morning. I wish that I could be there to see the look on his face. My sister has promised to take plenty of pictures to post on Facebook, so that will just have to do.
It’s a shame that my family just keeps on spreading out farther and farther with each passing year. I can’t image getting the whole family together for Christmas or Thanksgiving any time soon. I don’t think it would happen for a wedding either. And let us hope that we don’t have any funerals to find out how many would be able to attend.
Not knowing a single thing about yoga, when my sister asked me to get her one of the yoga bolsters that she had picked out and sent a picture of to me today in an email, I wasn’t quite sure exactly what to think. Not that it’s a big deal for me to know in order to order and give to her, it’s just that it made me realize that I really don’t know a lot about my sister and what she is into these days. Heck I didn’t even know she was into yoga for heaven’s sake.
So I have decided that once the holidays are all over and done with we are going to have to start spending more time with each other. It’s not like we live all that far from each other, but we all get so darned busy and next thing you know we only seem to communicate with a text now and then, or an occasional email or a shout out on Facebook and that just doesn’t seem to be cutting the mustard lately. More face to face is needed and I’m going to try and manage more face to face in the very near future. I sure hope she feels the same way!
It took me a few minutes to really get this, but after I digested it all it really cracked me up. Some of the things that are being Facebook are really pitiful and sad, but sometime there is something that really makes sense. I do believe that this falls in the later category.
I myself have never experienced the act of getting engaged, I’m a confirmed bachelor and I plan to keep it that way, thank you very much. I do seem to be one of a dying breed. On the other hand my best friend, Gary, has proposed several times and has always been turned down, but it appears that it doesn’t stop him from trying. They have been dating each other for over seven years now, living together for the last two years and he is more than ready to make an “honest woman” out of her and to make his and her parents happy to see them stand in front of God and say those two words that will commit themselves to each other for the rest of their lives.
I’ve known Gary since the second grade and we have been the best of buds since the fourth grade. I never thought that he of all people would ever want to settle down and get married. But Julie completes him and I’ve never seen him happier so I am happy for the both of them and I’ve even consented to be his best man on their wedding day when and if that day ever happens.
Last week he tried once again and to every one’s surprise she (Julie) said yes and gladly allowed him to place the engagement ring that he has used time and time again on her finger. Gary and I spent hours online a few years ago at various types of engagement rings to find the the most perfect of Diamond engagement rings for his use and I’m glad that Vicki is proud to wear it on her finger.
Whiteflash.com is a great online resource for georgia jewelry with the most unique engagement rings for men and women and wedding bands as well that we found anywhere online. If you take the time to give them a look see make sure you check their wonderful selection of asscher cut diamonds 0,40 carat diamonds.
They take PayPal and offer free over night shipping, we all like free, right? And if you find them on Facebook and “Like” them you can receive special promotions and announcements which is a plus. Who ever thought that Facebook would have become such a popular place for people to hook up and communicate with other folks as well as give businesses the opportunity to get to know their customers as they are now doing more and more. It’s all good.
One of my Facebook friends that went to the same high school as I did, but was a year ahead of me, works as a cigar salesperson and he always has the most interesting pictures and posts to read and enjoy almost everyday from his work. Today he was pictured smoking a nice macanudo cigar and posing with a couple of the Hooter Waitresses. with drinks in hand at some big exciting event in Pennsylvania. He has got to be one of the happiest of my old high school friends and is living the life, which I’m so glad to see, I just wish more of my old friends were living such exciting lives. Way too many of them are in bad health, bad relationships and stuck in a job that they barely tolerate just to keep a paycheck coming in these days.
