Well, Father Time has marched on to another year. Not only another year, but also another decade. Boy! They just keep coming up fast don't they? Feels like it was only yesterday I was 5 years old! I was just remembering those days yesterday too. I was thinking about when all the neighborhood kids used to catch the community bus to go to church. Including me and my sis. Those were the fun days! I was carefree and innocent. Back then, kids were still innocent beings, not like today where you'd be hardpressed to find an innocent child! Today it seems they are all the spawn of demons. LOL!
I have this thing now, I keep my DVDs in these specially-designed DVD cases, not the original hard, plastic cases anymore. As I went through my DVDs, I've noticed that a lot of them are missing! I have some Beavis and Butthead that I know to be missing! Where they went? I don't know! Martians came down and got them for all I know, because I looked everywhere and they aren't in this house! This is such a small apartment, if they are here, they can only be in so many different places, but I looked everywhere and I cannot find them. Well anyway, with keeping my DVDs in these big, soft cases, not only do I save room, but they also cannot be stolen to be resold. Each month I get a new one, and fill it up. Sometimes they fill up fast! The only thing now is what to do with these old plastic cases. There's so many now they are cluttering up the house!
Well, yesterday I went to Portland. I really hate going there now! It's not like it was when we lived in Olympia or even Toutle! Going there now is a dang chore!! But I still go because I hate paying the taxes in this state. Especially on items more than $100, and there was one that I needed. I saw this portable DVD player with a hi-def screen and a powerful battery that lasts up to 6 hours! Most of them only last 2. I thought as often as the power goes out here, that would actually be a more useful device. When the power goes out, we can watch as many as 3 movies!! I bought it yesterday, came home and gave it a spin. I love it!! Not only is the picture very clear and crisp, so is the sound!! I even stopped by their IKEA store! I thought I was going to be in Heaven when I went in there. They do have all kinds of furniture. But a lot of it is cheaply made!!! I need a new coffee table and a curio cabinet. The only coffee table they had that I liked was this long, oval one that had no drawers or storage of any kind! And that's what I want. The only curio cabinet they had was a little one that you stick in a corner of the house and it didn't even have lights. So, I guess I'll keep looking. There's always Phyl's!
Well anyway, I want to wish everyone a happy and safe New Year!
