Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! I enjoyed having the door wide open here at the office as that cool air permeated the room. Guess what? Not everyone likes cooler air. They particularly don't like leaving the door open on a cool morning. We do live with some weird people, don't we? What's that? Yes, they do. You talking about me? You are kidding, right? Oh, you're not kidding but that's okay because I was able to enjoy the sweet relief for a couple of hours before they showed up. But, just how in the world are you doing, anyway, on this Tuesday, October 4, 2011? I bet you enjoyed that cool air also. Last Saturday I tried to drive my wife to work with the window down but she was having no part of it. On Saturday evening when I picked her up I had the moon roof open and the windows down but she soon had me button everything up. My theory is to enjoy it while it lasts because as the Bible verse clearly states, "And it came to pass...." Therefore, we know this cool down will likely pass and give way to another round of that muggy stuff but in the meantime I will try to store up as much of this as I can, and I'll try not to be distracted by the grown man I see shivering from the cold. I need to send that dude to a little refresher cold tolerance boot camp conducted by my Paw Paw Mac.
I saw a news item celebrating the 61st birthday of color television. That goes all the way back to 1950. We didn't get our first black and white until either 1955 or 1956, and I'm thinking our first color television may have been the one my wife and I purchased in 1966. At any rate, let me be the first to say how much I enjoy that invention on the big wide screen where those cars running in circles at 200 miles per hour make you flinch, they appear so close. And what would we do without HD? That's high definition for those who may not recognize the logo. We become spoiled so quickly. Sometimes they have trouble on our satellite feed with the HD signal and we have to watch it in regular definition. But I don't won't to watch it like that. I want the full experience on the wide screen. That's right. The fellow who once was very satisfied to watch Gene Autry on a black and white small screen TV is now unhappy if he can't read the name tag of someone sitting in the grandstands from a quarter mile away. Speaking of being spoiled, we received this photo of our little great granddaughter, our little bundle of Madelyn Joy. Madi, as she is called, was up in a tree at her Paw Paw's house, our eldest son, and the photo was taken by her Aunt Brittany using her cell phone. Cell phone. That's right. I'm still trying to figure out how to make and receive calls. Maybe not quite that bad but talk about a good picture! And talk about a bundle of joy, in fact, a bundle of Madalyn Joy!
