719

Today's my day...719...7/19...

Back in the day, I used to punch in those digits after I paged someone...had to let them know it was TIPP!

Instead of texting, my generation used numbers to convey messages. Amazing...it was a whole new language!

For instance...to wish someone good morning:

6000*177012171176*719

or to let them know I'm thinking about them

823*719

It was all so simple, yet complex...I miss those days.

**************************

Simplest things:

"Listening is almost like a "magic pill" that is virtually guaranteed to produce good results in relationships."

Do you hear me? Do you feel me?

"Our response to a ringing phone is one of the few things in life over which we have absolute control and decision-making authority."

No telemarketers please! And I won't pick up if I'm driving. I'm in control.

***************************

Horoscope for today:

from Yahoo:
Be mindful that once you make a deeper connection with someone, you can't go back.

You need to relax and let yourself really ponder the big ideas that are coming your way today. It may be that you've got more than you can handle, but an open mind is still your best bet for now.

and from Feee Will Astrology:
It's like you've stumbled upon the Cosmic Lost and Found Office, Sagittarius. Whether or not it happened "by mistake" is irrelevant: It's an opportunity to recover good stuff that prematurely disappeared from your life. But keep in mind that your valuables may be mixed in with abandoned and forgotten junk, both yours and other people's. You might initially feel discouraged at the prospect of having to wade through all that meaningless dross in order to locate your treasures. Don't give up. Your diligence will ultimately be rewarded.

looks like I have a lot of diggin' to do. I'm used to it.

Kisses


I love it when random questions pop up. Jada and I took bart to Ashby Flea Market last Sunday, and when Jada switched seats, we found this written behind a seat.
Does he?

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

For the most part, if your goal is to look for what's right- whether that means finding the perfect parking place, the right job, a great neighborhood or school for your kids, people to spend time with , or a place to go on vacation- then that's what you'll find.

Smiling on a Sunday Morning



I dreamed an adventure last night. Of course, I can't remember it all, but thankfully, I remember the important part.

My homey Juan had this portable keyboard and then started playing and singing this awesome song that I've never heard of. It was called "Smiling on a Sunday Morning" and it had the same vibe as "Crystal Blue Persuasion", but only better, because I helped make the song. I pulled out this crazy string instrument which was a cross between a lapharp and a hammock and I just jammed with him. During the chorus, I had my shine time.

After the song, we tiffed about who really made the song what it was. I knew it was my instrument that made it truly special.

*****************************

That song sounds like it would be something that I'd listen to in reality. But how can I find and play an instrument like that?
