The song “No” by Megan Trainor

I think this YouTube video about the song “No” by Megan Trainor is so funny – it is about a woman who is being approached by a guy who is asking her for her name, zodiac sign, and her
phone number and she is replying by simply telling him “no.” I think that it sends a positive message to ladies everywhere, to not feel guilty about saying “no” to men that are not welcome. What do you think?

Electric or Acoustic

I can remember when I was a pre-teen, I wanted to learn how to play the guitar. I had taken piano lessons for many years, and I felt that made me a “nerd.” I was certain that if I learned how to play a guitar, I would instantly become one of the popular kids in school! Well, my parents did purchase an inexpensive acoustic guitar for me one year, as a gift. I don’t remember if it was for my birthday, or Christmas, but I will say that I took lessons for a few weeks, but could not take the pain involved in pressing my fingers down on the strings!

Anyone who can take that kind of punishment has my admiration, that is for sure! A few years ago, I gave my old, acoustic guitar to one of my friend’s kids. He did really well with the guitar, and I’ve heard that his parents are planning to buy a new electric guitar for him for Christmas! I haven’t heard him play at all yet, but I am hoping to go to their house sometimes soon and ask for a short performance! I am glad that my old guitar has proven to be a stepping-stone to bigger and better musical accomplishments.

Happy Thanksgiving

Best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful day of feasting and thankfulness. Maybe a parade in the morning and some football in the afternoon would be nice, too. Or get up extremely early and go deer hunting. Whichever way you choose to take advantage of the holiday, I hope it works out well for you and that you enjoy your day.

Library cards

I love to read. When I was younger my teachers were so upset with me for reading so much that they used to send notes home to my parents complaining that I read too much  My parents used to buy me a lot of books from the school’s Scholastic Book Orders, but eventually our bookcases overflowed with books that were only read once. So they finally wised up and got me a library card to the public library. I love going to the library and picking out a couple of books that interest me, bringing them home to read, and then returning them to the library when I’m done. The library is right in town so it is not inconvenient for me to go there. Library cards are one of the best “freebie” bargains there are!

Planning a costume party

Our family loves to throw costume parties for Halloween. They think it is a great way to protect the kids from potential harm from wackos during the Halloween season. My whole family gets into the act, and we throw the party for the whole neighborhood. We spend weeks looking at what Halloween Costumes we want to wear for the party.

This year my brother has decided that he wants to wear one of the Teen Halloween Costumes of Jack Sparrow that he found Online. My father bought one of the Halloween Costumes of Hellboy that he found. I found the cutest Tinker Bell Costume that I bought! This is going to be fun!
