Fudging machines, cartoons and updates

I'm really diggin' my MP3 player. I downloaded some e-books and other miscellaneous music.

After I got home yesterday, I went through that stuff Uncle Bobby left and couldn't find a fudge machine in it. I would remember a fudge machine since it's pretty heavy and had 'fudge machine' written all over it. So I called and told him it must still be in the building. He told me not to worry about it but then he had started his happy hour and when he's like that he doesn't care one way or another. For a little while I fretted over it not being in the stuff in the building...but my brother said not to worry about it...that Lee and his wife had plenty of time to get things they wanted to keep and it's not our fault it's not out there. So I'm not worrying, I'm being happy.

And crazy Al... why don't men listen to women when they talk to them? He and I had a discussion on the yard sale last night over the phone...I spent at least 10 mins talking about all the things we had to do Friday night and that I hoped no one would show up before we had all the stuff out. And how I hoped it wouldn't be too hot Saturday...then I told him what I put in the yard sale ad and that it will run Friday and Saturday.

About 20 mins later (he unsolicitly lectured me on the best grade of gasoline I should be using), he asked, "When's the yard sale?"

I was blown away... I had to recount my previous conversation and when I had about one sentence left, he interrupted me with "Oh yeah...I remember."

He promised he would help me. I'm going to hold him to it ...and if he makes other plans, he'll get pork and beans for supper that night.

Watched Shrek 3 on HBO last night. Tossed up a coin between 300 and Shrek... Shrek won by a mudslide ...

Got a reply from Sam's wife about his condition:

Hi Sherry,

Thank you for writing me..Sam is doing ok. Recovering slowly. Still has a bit of pain in the eye and that has started him waking up in the middle of the night which had us both concerned. He had called an left a voicemail lastnight with his doctor about it, but not sure the outcome of that is. He is out and about right now as a friend came and picked him up to take care of somethings. I am hoping one of them being seen by his Doctor. Anyhow, I will let him know that you send you love and well wishes.


I'm relieved but concerned about the pain. Sam tends to ignore things like that. I hope she's on his ass about seeing his doctor.

So Shere, when's the yard sale? Men listen, we just have this short term memory th...damn, what was I saying? Anyway, what'd you think of Shrek 3? I haven't seen it yet. I heard it wasn't as good as the first two, but that's from the same sort of movie critics than panned all the Star Wars movies.

The yard sale is Saturday. (Al asked again this morning!!) I don't know why they panned it...I thought it was as good as the first one, maybe not as good as the second but it had some 'laugh out loud' moments. I would check it out if I were you...the babies were cute at the end, too.

(by the way...the yard sale is Sat. :p)
