When Judy told me that Buddy had proposed to her on Valentine’s Day, and she had accepted the proposal I was so surprised! Judy had sworn that she would never, ever, “tie the knot” again as long as she lived after the last scoundrel she married broke her heart and left her penniless. All I can say is that Buddy must be one heck of a man if he won her over! Anyway, Judy has asked me to help her with her wedding plans, and I told her that I’d help her to locate a few different raleigh nc wedding photographers to give her some quotes, but before we can really do much planning, they need to set a date! After all, when you schedule something like that, the first question the potential photographer is going to ask is “what is the date?”
I remember hearing Kermit The Frog sing his hit song entitled “It Isn’t Easy Being Green” it was a heart breaking song to hear him sing back then. Now a days the big buss word is “Green” people are flocking to find ways to become as “Green” as possible and I’m loving it. My parents were from the 70′s era and were totally into the hippie and Woodstock scene. They brought us kids up trying our best to recycle and not abuse our Mother Earth, which we all embraced and learned from.
I think that today, more than ever, it IS EASY being green!
My father used to play several instruments, one of them being the trumpet. He also played the drum set, the piano, the ukelele, the upright bass, and just about any instrument I saw him pick up! So whenever I am around live music, I like to stop and observe for a while, and always applaud in between songs. I figure it is the least I could do out of respect for all of the hours of rehearsal that musicians participate in! Anyway, I was so surprised today when I saw this video on YouTube that demonstrates an exceptional pocket trumpet at wwbw! I had never heard of a pocket trumpet before, and certainly never seen one – and I wonder if my father had ever seen one in his lifetime, what he would have thought of it! I’ll bet he would have purchased one!
There are two pharmacists assigned to my store that I work with on a regular basis. One is the PIC (Pharmacist in Charge) and the other is “just” a pharmacist. They both are very interesting characters. They are both extremely smart people, and I am always impressed by their knowledge of pharmacy. Neither of them are originally from the US, so English is not their native tongue. Because of this, sometimes they find it a challenge to get their ideas across.
But I’ve come to the conclusion, regrettably, that one of the pharmacists has decided that he does not like me, and he has become difficult to get along with. No matter how hard I try to be nice to him, he reacts with cold hostility. So what was once a wonderful place to work has now become an unpleasant place to work. That’s really sad, because when I started looking for work the highest priority I had was to be working with people who were nice to me. Maybe it’s time for me to start looking for a different place to work.
We were so saddened by the news that Uncle Stan had passed away, but we were grateful that he passed in his sleep, and was not in any pain when it happened. I guess when all is said and done, that is the best that anyone can hope for, to just fall asleep and never wake up again, and to have no pain when it happens. It was still unexpected, however, and we were saddened by the thought that we will never hear him play his classic professional alto saxophone at family gatherings during the future family parties. I heard that he left all of his musical instruments to his son, which wasn’t much of a surprise, but nobody thinks he will use any of it, and will probably end up taking it all down to the pawn shop. That made me sad, too.
