Lately I have been hearing the bad news on Facebook from friends must faster than hearing about it on TV. I think that is one of the cool things about Facebook. There is usually someone who is plugged in with whats happening and they post it on there wall before it can even make the news. If you have enough friends, you can find out anything you need.
About a year ago I loaned Sherri some money because she was in a real bind. She had cashed her paycheck and taken the money home, left her purse in the living room and went to bed. Sometime during the night, one of her kids took all the cash from her purse and took off. The brat didn’t just take a couple of $20 bills, he took her entire paycheck and didn’t leave her a single dollar.
That meant she could not pay her electric bill, her car payment or go grocery shopping for a whole week. That was heartless and unforgivable to do that to your mother, but that’s what kids do when they are desperate for cash. And the sad thing is that she has two sons and isn’t sure which one did it.
So I loaned her the $400 and told her I could wait a month or two to get it back from her. Now I just realized its been almost a year and she’s never paid me back. I am going to have to find a gentle way to remind her that I want my money back.
Okay, YouTube is one of the best things invented on the internet. I have seen so many crazy video’s as well as instructional ones and the music too. Now they have movies and such for free. That is just awesome. I watched a video on how to fix my truck if the water pump goes out. It had step by step instructions, by some guy who was fixing his. After watching that I decided to see what else there was for fixing my truck and found so much that I could practically build one from the bottom up. That is totally cool. The information highway as they call it, is a perfect description.
For now though, I believe I will stick to funny videos and music, but it is nice to know that I can find instructions on stuff as well. Maybe I should make some video’s about gardening. I saw some on there for growing stuff already, why can’t I do it too. I think the wife would really love that. It is a project we can work on together and she can show off to all of her friends. All women love to show off stuff to their friends after all.
I took my lovely wife out to eat last night and then for a couple of drinks and dancing. The restaurant was really good. We had Indian food which is very spicy, at a new place on the South side of town. Not having ever eaten Indian food before I only had a slight knowledge of what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. I knew that it would be spicy, but they gauge the spice factor for those not accustomed to it and that I didn’t know. I would have tried it years ago if I had but known that.
After dinner we went to a little place downtown that plays blues and jazz music for a romantic evening. We really enjoyed it and had a good time just talking like we used to before we married. That was the best part for me. I think sometimes people get so caught up in life that they forget to talk to their partner. Then when they have problems, they think that they have changed or drifted apart, when all they did was stop talking to each other. Not about everyday things, but the other stuff, like dreams and such. I hope that never happens to my wife and I.
