Yesterday was a pretty normal day around here. But, after picking SWMBO up at the QFC, something Special happened. When we got home, SWMBO and I sat in my room just talking until way after my usual bedtime. I think we talked about most everything; including our Son, Patrick, that died back in 1991. Which we donâ€™t do very often. (Either the talking that long or Patrick that much.) It was nice.
And, to top that off, today was our usual â€œdateâ€ day. I took her to the junk store in Shelton thatâ€™s going out of business and having a half-price sale. She bought a butt-ton of CDâ€™s (which Iâ€™lll have to rip later) and I got a couple of blu-ray movies ($1/ea!). All in all she spent &17 mostly on cdâ€™s.
Then dinner at Burger King cause I felt like a Whopper. (Every once in awhile I just get the urge for flame-broiled beef.) Then on to Walmart for â€œstuff.â€ Her â€œstuffâ€ was a new iron. My â€œstuffâ€ was The Complete Star Trek: TOS series on blu-ray and a new 2tb external drive (for backups of my â€œstuffâ€ on my data drive). And we bought food.
So weâ€™re home now. SWMBO is off in her room doing genealogy and going through the cdâ€™s she got. Iâ€™m doing this and starting to rip the movies I got (The Shining and The Silence Of The Lambs). Will wait until tomorrow to start ripping Star Trek to .mp4 files for the TVDrive.
