Zephyrhills, Florida (high 84, low 60)
When I started blogging, I never realized how many friends I would make, or how much I would learn from others.
Yesterday the mailman brought us a package from someone in Georgia. I didn’t recognize the name and when we opened the package it was a CD with the numbers “21” handwritten on the outside. There was nothing else in the envelope, except a note saying “enjoy.” What was this, who sent it? Did it actually belong to someone else? What could it be? The numbers 21 should have told me, but I was having a senior moment I guess.
We got it home, put the cd into the player and as soon as I heard the first 2 notes of the song, I knew immediately who sent it and what it was!
A few weeks ago on the blog, I mentioned problems I was having downloading some songs by the singer Adele. I had discovered her while watching the Grammy’s.
I got a nice comment and email from Jim of the Meandering Maddox's, offering some suggestions on how to get the song I had paid for. He said he had Adele’s album “21” and suggested I get the whole album because it was so good. It is!
I intended to do just that, but after paying for 3 songs to download online, and only getting 2 of them, I was hesitant to buy the album online. I figured I’d just pick up the cd at the store….but I never did.
So once we put the cd in, the music started playing and I heard Adele singing Rolling in the Deep, the mystery was solved.
Jim and Judy had sent us a copy of her album! How nice was that? I know they had to do some searching to get our address, but they took the time, packaged it up and sent it to us.
If you haven’t found Jim and Judy’s blog yet, you might want to check it out and wish Judy a happy retirement. Today is her last day of work after over 30 years in the banking industry. They are starting a work camping gig soon and have their house on the market!
Thanks again Jim and Judy….hope to see you down the road, and congrats Judy on your long career!
Good news from the Ophthalmologist visit yesterday. The pressure in both of my eyes was down, and I was off the medication to lower it.
I can now start planning on having the other eye done. Oh joy! I am not looking forward to that. I’m going to wait until after we get back from the Keys though and the doc thought that it would be fine. I have no restrictions except I can’t take any meds that increase pressure…like antihistamines. With the yellow pollen starting to blanket the cars, I may be in trouble. Hopefully, it will be not a problem in the keys.
We’re planning a kayaking trip today….so pictures tomorrow.
