First New Year's Blog

Today's Saying
Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights. ~Pauline R. Kezer

New Year’s Eve was quiet enough. I was sleeping by 9:00 and then got up at ten minutes to twelve and celebrated with Pennie and Betty the coming of the New Year.
I thought I was going to spend a quiet New Year’s Day at home working on my blog. On Monday the changes take place and I don’t have everything ready yet. But my daughter and my wife decided we should go to Peter’s for the day. So we went.
We did have a great day at Peter’s.
Pictures from that visit:( Click on picture for larger version)

Tomorrow will be the last day for this format.

This blog has to take less time so I can work with the train layout and get some E-bay stuff done.
Simplify, Simplify, Simplify. The number one rule.

Somewhere in Pigeon Falls a child says
Створити супер Герман
Herman got up early this morning and began to get ready to teach the first Saturday Bible Class of the New Year. He really wanted this class to be special and so he had put a lot of work into its preparation.
For some reason which he couldn’t understand he woke up with the word “ Shazam” running through his mind. The local kid’s show on TV ran one chapter of the old Marvel serial every week when Herman was young.. He hadn’t thought of that show or that word in years, not since as a boy. Then he had said it over and over hoping to become a super hero like Captain Marvel, It never worked.
But today the word had just suddenly popped up in his head. The more he tried to concentrate on other things the more he thought of that word. It made no sense. Finally he thought “ Perhaps, if I say it out loud it will clear my mind”. So he took a deep breath and said “ Shazam””
There was a burst of lightning and suddenly standing there in your standard super hero costume was Captain Herman. Herman thought “ This has got to be a dream and any moment I will wake up.” He waited but nothing changed. Then he said “ Shazam” again . There was a bolt of lightning and plain old Herman returned.
At that point his wife came into the kitchen. She said “ I swear Herman I thought I saw a flash of something in here.”
Herman said “ Shazam”. The bolt of lightning returned , followed by Captain Herman. At that point his wife fainted.
Herman Shazamed himself back to plain old Herman and got some water to put on her face.
“What was that” she said as she returned to consciousness .
“I think it was magic” Herman said.” Let’s hope it wears off like all the other spells have. Then he went back to preparing for the Bible Study.

ROFLMBO!!! Okay - well there ya go! Now that Super Herman is created, I'm sure Disney owns him along with all the OTHER Marvel characters! Let THEM write the story! We should have a Super Herman movie in the theaters by next Christmas!

I DO hope you get your blog AND your train layout taken care of. You should not have to trade one for the other! But don't mess with that 15 minutes on the treadmill! THATs what is really IMPORTANT!

Love you!

Glad you had a great New Years. The pictures were wonderful. I'm looking forward to the change to see what you have up your sleeve. One thing, and after reading through the comments, I saw Melli already said what I wanted to about the treadmill. Don't forget that either. Very very important.

I dont' know it's just me I'm sure but when I hear the word Shazam I think of Gomer Pyle. Go figure :)

Well Dr. John, the year's beginning is a good time to revamp the blogging. Mine borders on too much time for me too. And I don't have trains. I have been checking for radio and car things on eBay but my New Messages for searches is over 2,000. Seems I've neglected my hobbies also.

I try to post three times a week and throw a poem or two or three on the other one. My Ask Dr. Jim (blog) hasn't had a post since September but soon I will work on some 'back logged' questions. :-)

I'll be anxious to see your new format and/or schedule.
Best of wishes for it, you do have a lot of blogging friends. Thank you for accepting me.

Electronic memory,to me, is something that I seemingly will never have enough of. It feels like megabytes and gigabytes have become an inseparable part of my day to day existence. Ever since I bought a Micro SD Card for my NDS flash card, I've been on the constant lookout for high memory at cheap prices. It's driving me crazy.
