Leap year

by on Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Tomorrow is leap year day. We get an extra day this year to frolic or work one. I will probably be working on the house. I am quite sure I didn’t need and extra day to do that. Really I could have gone without a whole extra day of chores. No matter though, I will persevere, and the wifey will be happy. I have my honey do list all ready for tomorrow. I have to clean out the garage, the gutters, the flower beds and the garden patch in preparation for planting. Oh fun.

I think my wife would make a really good warden in a prison. It would be the prettiest prison as well as the most productive. She would probably grow all of their food right their on the prison grounds and turn it into a working farm. Don’t tell her I said that though, she would kill me. I will get it all finished though I am not worried about that, but I am going to be one tired man by the time I am done. It will be worth it though as I will have everything in perfect readiness for spring planting and wont have to worry about finding anything I need. I have to run to Home Depot and pick up some yard bags and such now.

Old VCR Tapes

by on Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Going through the garage I found an old box filled with VCR tapes. You know, those huge plastic rectangles containing spools of magnetic tape? The ones that used to cost $39 and $49 for the newest releases back in the 1980’s?

It was kind of cool to look at all those old movie titles and remembering why I liked them enough to spend that kind of money on them. and now they are not even worth $2 at the Goodwill or Used DVD stores. Not exactly a good investment in those tapes, was it?
