My iPod Has Issues – Being Put to Sleep

12 May

Tomorrow, I am having a procedure done, and they are going to put me to sleep. That has to be the worst term ever invented. Who came up with the idea of telling someone that they are being put to sleep? It is like being taken in front of one of those death panels and learning that you are no longer a vital part of society.Death Panel

Seriously, they could just say that they are going to knock you out. That leaves you with the impression that you will wake up. Want to know how it feels to be told that you are being put to sleep? Just ask Rover. Wait, you cannot ask Rover. He is dead.

To mark this occasion of being put to sleep, I have decided to bust out the iPod and see what it feels like playing.

My iPod Has Issues – Reunited and It Feels So Good Edition

18 Mar

As you have read, I spent a few days with my parents in northwest Mississippi. At the same time, my wife and stepdaughter were in Hilton Head, South Carolina. We all had great times, but I missed them. I hope that they missed me. Heck, even Daisy Dog was somewhere completely different.Peaches

Now, the family is back together, and I do not want to spend a lot of time holed up in my office. With that in mind, I am going to take the easy way out and dig into the depths of my iPod. Remember how it goes. I put it on shuffle and list the first 20 songs that play.
