Just Who Stole The Cookies From The Cookie Jar?

The song “Who Stole The Cookies From The Cookie Jar” came into my head this morning for some reason, one of those songs that gets in there and won’t leave for hours. I can’t tell you how many times we all sang this wonderfully entertaining song that get’s even the shyest people to participate and have some fun with. It was still going on these evening while I was catching up on my PC, so I decided to see if I could find a video of the song on YouTube and I managed to find this hilarious one that I wanted to share.

I don’t think that any of us ever thought that we would see this song on a computer one day like this. I had to send my brothers and sisters the link to this hilarious version of one of our favorite silly songs of days gone by. Another silly song we used to sing was “Beans In Our Ears” I’m almost afraid to look that one up to see what they have done with that one. But I guess when that song gets stuck in my head I will break down and look it up. In the mean time I’ll keep wondering just who stole the cookies from the cookie jar.

Voice Mail Issues And More

The last couple of weeks, my voice mail has gone crazy and is giving people that call me a very strange message that no one can figure out how it gone onto the darn thing. I finally found the paperwork, with the directions (it was in it’s file, of all places) on how to change the message.

I spent a good amount of time figuring out how to use it and to make the message sound like a decent sounding message should. I always hate hearing my voice when I review the message, and find myself having to record it several times before dragging myself away from the phone and be content with what I had recorded.

While I was looking through the many piles of paper work I came across some of the Blank Staff Paper that I had ordered from musician’s friend not too long ago. Actually now that I’m thinking about it I had got it right after last Christmas and I had gave it up for lost several months ago. I have a friend that used to write some really beautiful music, back in the day. Last time I saw her she was talking about taking it up again, but was using the excuse that she didn’t have the extra money to buy some of the supplies that she needed.

Now that I have found these papers I have an excuse to give her a shout out and she if we can get together before the summer ends and we all get caught up with all of the things that keep us busy with the Holiday season.

Camping In The Mountains

I went with my sister yesterday to pick up her daughter from a week long stay at a summer camp, that is tucked up in the most beautiful mountains, a one a half hour drive from her place. I don’t get a chance to visit with my sister as much as I would like to these days, we are always so busy with our days and nights, but we try to make time when possible, so I jumped at the chance to go with her and enjoying the drive up and back a lot.

My niece was so excited to see me there, at their designated pick up area of the camp, that she barely noticed her Mom, she came running up to me and practically knocked me over with a big ole’ bear hug, she caught me off guard and I almost fell over, and right on top of this overly excited happy camper.

I think my sister’s feelings were a bit hurt at first, but she got over it real quick when her daughter finally realized that her Mom was there right beside me, and she didn’t even realize it at first. Of course after seeing her Mom, they were inseparably from that point on. We gathered up all of her stuff, put a deposit down to reserve a space for her for next year’s camp season and hit the road back to the city.

The ride home was full of stories of camp life, she had a blast, made friends and can’t wait for next summer to do it all over again.

What, Me Worry?

It always worries me when I think that the flat screen TV mounts aren’t installed properly and could come tumbling down at any time. Besides wrecking the TV, it could damage other things that would be in the path of its falling down, even hurting some one if they were in the way as well.

Even though I am pretty handy with tools and can do a lot of odd jobs around the place, I would never attempt to install something like that myself.
