My iPod Has Issues – Losing Bill Dance and Finding Eddie Feigner

24 Sep

We are having a garage sale, and everyone knows what that means. We are dragging out stuff that we forgot we had. Some of it is coming from the attic. Some of it is coming from our closets. Some of it is coming from the Land of Discarded Items.

In the process, I am giving up the autographed Bill Dance t-shirt that I got when the famed fisherman made an appearance at the Hollywood Casino in Tunica, Mississippi. It is definitely a sacrifice to give up something that cool.

However, some cool things are staying. While digging for artifacts, I came across a booklet celebrating the 25th Anniversary of The King and His Court. If that name does not mean anything to you, then let me explain. Eddie Feigner was a fast pitch softball pitcher who traveled the world with a four-man team. They took on all comers and won over 9,000 games. Along the way, Eddie “The King” ¬†Feigner did tricks with the ball. There are a few people around here who played against them. I need to collect stories and write a post about them.

Anyway, we have dragged a bunch of stuff into the garage and are ready to do business. Hopefully, we will make some money. Every quarter counts.image-2

To commemorate the event, I have decided to look into my iPod and see what it is doing.

My iPod Has Issues – Part 10

7 Nov

“So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.” I am as flustered as Willy Wonka after a long day touring the chocolate factory.¬† By the way, I am talking about the real Willy Wonka instead of that crazy Johnny Depp one.

Tests to grade. Meetings to attend. On and on and on it goes. What was it that Sonny and Cher sang? “The Beat Goes On” (Yeah, I was going to link that, but WordPress is all fouled up for some reason.)

With all of this stuff going on, I can’t spend much time in the Land of SBI. Everyone knows what that means. It’s time for a quick post, and the quickest post I know of delves into the dark regions of my iPod. Let’s shuffle it up and see what craziness comes out.
