Today I went to the country to fetch the cemetery urns and put them away for the winter. The country roads had a few leaves swirling on them and a little color on some of the trees already, fall is in the air.

I felt like I was on a shoot for an episode of the Dukes of Hazard!

I haven't had a land line in almost 10 years and don't miss it at all. It's nice to have one number that goes with me when I travel.
My last four numbers before I got this one was 5432. Easy to remember. Then I had to get it changed to an unlisted number. 2404. Another easy one to remember. Now I have to remember all 10 numbers of my cell phone when I have my land line disconnected. I am lucky I can remember the ten letters to my name.

Can't you take your number with you? We can do that here in Canada, at least to the smaller cell phone providers. I haven't kept up with the implementation.

My Dad loved Glenn Miller and as a result of hearing big band music all my life I am a fan too.

Thanks, Andy, you just gave me an idea. I am supposed to do a lot of resting and "keep calm" these days. I think I will put some of Dad's CD's on - will really put me "In The Mood".

No. This is a free cell phone government program for elderly and you take the number they give you.

I used to kill myself dancing to Glen Miller. Now I am lucky to tap my foot.

Earlier I watched videos of Chatanooga Choo-Choo and K-a-l-a-m-a-z-o-o on YouTube.
