I Hate Music!

I said I was finished.

I said I could add music to my Zune.

I can.

I know I can. But...
Somewhere during the ripping of the last 10 CDs, the syncing was sluggish then stalled and then...when restoring was attempted, I ran into some technical difficulties that deleted all songs, genres, albums, video...everything, including the factory installed goodies that came loaded on the Zune.

Everything is gone.
At one point only mostly everything was gone. I was on the phone for the better part of the day (I do mean the better part of the day!) with nice technical support employees. They were friendly, patient and helpful, if baffled. When I got off the phone with Carlo (who sounded Scandinavian somehow) it seemed as though I was good to go. Good to go. ha. I was good to go...crazy. After all the tech time, I was back to Square One (or Screen One) with not one thing on the Zune. Thankfully, all the songs which had been on the Zune are in tidy little folders in our computer, so in theory they should be simple enough to transfer, rip, sync or whatever. Honestly, I'm feeling rather faithless, but the plan is to exchange this Zune for another one, maybe one with a different lot number. This difficulty may be a problem with me (Oh, it is definitely my problem right now) but I think and hope it was one of those strange things that happen and I'll be able to re-sync and be actually finished in another couple days.
Oh, my head!
No, I don't really hate music!

Haha funny video! However, not so funny about the Zune. How very frustrating! But at least you still have everything organized on your computer. I hope the next one works better for you. Hmmm, interesting that a man named Carlo sounded Scandinavian...

Wanna Play “Stink Pink”?

Are you familiar with the game? I hadn’t heard of it until several years ago when we were building a house on Main Street. It was the house we were going to live in for the rest of our lives and the house my Dad helped in so many ways including laying 2,600 sq. ft. of slate tile, but that’s another story. I was speaking of “Stink Pink”. When we were building Main Street house, a man named Bob was working with Mike and taught us the game. We put in some long hours and this was one of the pastimes as we worked! The rule is to give a hint that describes two rhyming words. If the words have one syllable, you say “It’s a “Stink Pink“. Two syllables- “Stinky Pinky” Three syllables- Stinkity Pinkity” and so on! An example of a “Stink Pink” is: A Large Feline. (A. Fat Cat) An example of a “Stinky Pinky” is: A Comic Cottontail. (A. Funny Bunny) A “Stinkity Pinkity” hint is: Okay, I’ve drawn a blank! Could someone come up with a three syllable “Stinkity Pinkity”? So you get the idea. The words…

My little Mama

Johnny and "Bubbles"
My little Mama My birth-giving Mama You go before me Braver frailty leading on And I wonder at being knit together in your womb At loving hands attending my helplessness And you laboring at leaving Laboring at dying Not knowing how because you have always lived Full and free My lovely Mama  I love you always

My Mama went to be with the Lord on February 9, 2011 She was able to be at home when she died. I am blessed to have been beside her with Mike and Dad at her passing and to have seen her trust her soul to the Lord.
