Fun and practical laser lights

Laser light show

Laser light show

One of the funniest things I’ve ever seen is how our cats and dogs love to chase a laser light around the house. After dinner, when we are watching television, I like to take the little laser light that my wife gave me for Christmas and shine it on the floor, drawing circles and mazes and have it go up the wall a little bit. The pets will chase that light for a good half-hour or so before they get tired!

If you should ever decide to adopt a kitten, one of the first toys you should consider is to buy laser light keychains to keep near your favorite chair in the living room. I guarantee that you will have hours of fun with that inexpensive little thing – well worth the few dollars you spend.

I never knew there were so many different kinds of Ukes

When my old friend Brenda posted on Facebook that she was taking ukulele classes, and that she was having so much fun, I was really surprised. I had no idea that she ever had an interest in playing an instrument. Out of curiosity, I went online to look at the variety of MF ukes and was really surprised to find out there were different types – baritone, tenor and soprano! I always thought that a ukulele was a ukulele was a ukulele! Well, I guess that’s my “learn something every day” lesson for today!

Lightening Bugs Catch and Release

This year there doesn’t seem to be as many lightening bugs out and about at night like we usually have this time of year. As kids we used to really enjoy running around in the backyard catching as many as we could and like the majority of kids we put them in a jar that we had poked some holes in the lid so that they could have fresh air and hopefully live a couple of days in. We would put the jar by our bed and watch them flying around and lighting up as we tried to go to sleep.

Now that I’m an adult, I have to admit that I am sad to think that when we did that, we were killing them off, and I feel guilty that we did that. Now I encourage kids to only keep them in a jar for a couple of hours, and then let them go. Practice catch and release, catch and release.

I love shopping online

When my wife told me that I should do more of my shopping online, I have to admit that I was more than a bit resistant to the idea. I am a small-town boy who is used to driving into town and getting everything that I need or want. But when Chuck closed up his motorcycle shop, I was forced to go online to look for motorcycle parts when I needed them. Now I have to admit that I am hooked, and will spend at least one hour a day online shopping around.

My wife gets very nervous when I go online, and I try to reassure her “I’m just window shopping” but she doesn’t believe me for a minute. I can’t say that I blame her, there seem to be packages arriving here at our house on a regular basis addressed to me! I think I may have to ask my buddy Brad if I can have my packages delivered to his place, to keep my wife from divorcing me!
