The other day I was organizing my photos on the blog. I was grouping the photos of Lis, Lukas and me together, then the photos of the family members and so and so forth. Just changing things around so that people can see some new photos rather than the same ol’ tiring hospital photos. As I was doing this I was listening to some music in the background. Then when it was all done I watched the slideshow while the music played. Lis, Randy and I thought it was pretty neat and tried to think of a song that would work well with the photos. Randy said, “You need a Kenny G song” and I immediately thought of a song I had. Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” with Kenny G on sax.
When played over the slideshow it adds emotion. It’s beautiful actually. Randy, Lis and I got quiet while watching the slides of the photos. Later Randy said “Can you make a slideshow for my wedding.” He’s not getting married anytime soon (he doesn’t have a girlfriend and still lives at home, but he’s available ladies) but it was a nice thought and something I would enjoy doing.
Anyway, I don’t know why I’m rambling about this. I guess I just want people to try it so if you have a song that makes you feel emotional play it over the slideshow. It’s cool.
So our garage is now full of junk. Yikes! I hope we can sell everything. Lis and I would always talk about how a lot of people in our neighborhood don’t use their garages for their cars because people have so much junk. I don’t know if it’s an American thing but we like to keep stuff that we think has some sentimental value to us or that we might need to use someday. Please! You should see the crap that we’ve gathered. And people will add to their crap by buying this crap. It’s just what we do.
Man, I’ve been so exhausted the last couple of days. I don’t know what it is. Maybe staying till 6pm at work exhausts me, I don’t know? Last night I was exhausted and the phone kept ringing and ringing and ringing. It does that a lot lately, either the phone is ringing or we have people over. We have a revolving door in our house, much like my parents had when we lived at home. People come and go as they please. It’s nice, but to be honest with you, I’m looking forward to having the house to ourselves again. We need a vacation after all this. I want to get away for a few days, turn off the cell phone and relax with my wife and son. That’d be neat (why do I insist on using that word?)
