When I was a very young kid, I seem to recall my father teaching me that the bass guitar had only four strings, and that you tuned it to the tune “My Dog Has Fleas” as you hummed it! So I was very surprised to learn, as an adult, that some bass guitars have more strings than that, and now I’m wondering if maybe I dreamed up the entire occasion of my father teaching me that lesson! Anyway, I was just remembering that lesson when Mark told me that he was thinking about buying a 7 string bass. What will they think of next?
I had to work today, but it was only a half day. My boss was generous enough to let me only work from 9-1 every day this week so I can spend afternoons visiting with my son. That works out great because by the time I get home my son is just getting out of bed. He never used to be a night owl before going to college, but he is now! So it has been nice being able to come home early and visit with him a while before I have to go to bed! I don’ think I’m going to try to stay up until midnight, though; I haven’t done that in years! Besides, I’m having a big family dinner here on New Years Day, and I need to get some rest!
I was surprised again to have today off of work! I thought for sure that being the “new gal” at work that I’d have to work Christmas Day for sure! But I found out that Christmas Day is usually so slow that only the pharmacist works, and ALL the techs get Christmas Day off! I was really glad to hear that because I wanted to spend Christmas Day with my family, but was reluctant to “rock the boat” by asking for the day off! Unfortunately I haven’t worked there long enough to get it as a paid day off, but that’s ok with me! I hope everyone has a great day today! Merry Christmas to all of you out there!
I don’t know about you, but shopping in a mall any weekend, or evening, between Thanksgiving and Christmas is something I try to avoid! There are just so many people who are in a hurry to get their goodies home! Tempers can flare, and the spirit of the season can be quickly forgotten! That is why I turn to the website and look for gifts online for some of my family and friends. One of my favorite websites to check out for gifts for our musician friends is the https://www.musiciansfriend.com/ website. They seem to have just about everything a musician could even dream about getting!
Today was a nice day for the whole family and at the end of the day we were all truly thankful for our blessing.
My brother invited everyone over to his house for dinner. We got there early to watch the football game at noon and then help in the kitchen. We had a lot of helping hands and a lot of delicious food. The only problem I had was choosing between pumpkin pie and the pecan pie. I was so totally full of turkey that I hardly had room for dessert, but who can turn down a slice of pie on Thanksgiving?
