A Text Message, A Ringtone and a Beloved T-Shirt

I got this text message from my oldest granddaughter the other day. How sweet is this kid? I told Randey we've got to work on scheduling us a trip to Florida soon to visit with her. I've kept her message just so I can look at it throughout the day. It makes me smile everytime I see it.
Here's something that falls under the "Almost Twilight Zone" sister got a Vu phone just like mine, but was having trouble assigning certain ringtones to certain contacts in her address book after she'd downloaded them. I hadn't downloaded any ringtones myself (because I'd been too lazy to sit through the process!), but decided I'd try to do one just to see if I could figure out how and let her know. As it turns out, my youngest son Jacob figured out how to do it, not me. But whatever...once he taught me what to do, I immediately started downloading ringtones for those few people who actually call me (it's a small number...most everyone knows how much I hate talking on the phone. Or maybe nobody really wants to call me. LOL). When I called my sister to coach her through the process, I asked her what ringtone had she picked for my number. She said she'd chosen this little song called "Shoop". I busted out laughing. I had chosen the exact same song for HER number on my phone. And I'd never even heard it before yesterday. Randey and the boys told me that my sister and I were just freaky, bizarre and more than a little disturbing. Even Sherri and I had to marvel at the coincidence, though...both of us - living 750 miles apart from one another - picking the same song for each other's ringtones. Crazy.
Finally, I just had to post this. I was thinking about my old Johnny Bench worshipping days and finally went and dug out my beloved JB t-shirt that I got back in 1975. Check it out! The darn thing fits me (kind of)! I mean, yeah, it's a little wonky and all because I wore it probably 3 times a week for months on end when I was in the 7th and 8th grade (notice how the neck and arm trim has faded to pink - it started out RED!), but theoretically speaking, I could wear it again if I so chose to. And, of course, if I didn't want to be seen in public with Randey because he informed me that it was no longer a viable fashion statement and would be best worn within the privacy of our home and he most certainly would not be seen in public with me wearing it. Hmphf! Spoilsport. It's Johnny Bench, though. Who wouldn't want to be seen in public standing next to such a fabulous shirt! lolOkay, that's all I've got for now. My thoughts have been scattered all over the place these past couple of weeks. My very best friend in the whole wide world has moved here from Florida and I've just been so excited about it that I can't seem to sit down and form any coherent posts. It's like my insides are operating on hyperdrive! I know I'll chill out sooner or later and will be able to make some sense one of these days soon. Hope so anyway!
