Oh my my Sweet Valentine, Rob, was one surprised guy !!!
Later on today, I had to call him, as when I had gone back into the spare bedroom to see where he had put his new Banjo, low and behold there was something there still untouched ....
The funny thing about this was last week there was a Banjo book in the Salvation Army's Silent Auction, which Rob had me go in to place a $4.00 bid on, and he actually won. Right after that happened this used Banjo was posted on the Lion's Head Swap Facebook page, with me being the only inquiry. It was almost like it was a match made in "Heaven".
Since Rob has had the desire to learn the past couple of years, with neither of us knowing anything about string instruments, the girl who I bought it from said if we had the Banjo checked out by someone who knew, and it wasn't up to par, she would take it back and refund my money. I hope it is only in need of the one string it is missing, as it was a really good deal that I used up the last of the Puppy Money on that I had put away from last Year.
I am telling you, Rob best be pretty happy with our Bandit and Lexus, as their puppies got him started with two used vehicles for his Taxi business and a Banjo !!! He is one lucky guy that man of mine, and he really does love every one of our "pack", right down to the bratty Missy Mercedes.
Oh I must not forget, my dear Rob did get me something for Valentines Day as well.
Today I had an Installer from Shaw Direct Satellite come and install a spanking brand new High Definition PVR receiver to our TV. Wow, Rob and I are starting to come out of those dinosaur years further bit by bit, we are.... lol.
Really it was quite amazing how we happened upon a "new" HDPVR receiver from Shaw. Bell is giving away these same kind of receivers, right now as a promotion to new customers if they take a contract with them. Rob thought, well let's switch to Bell, then we will have a receiver to record, pause and playback what shows we would like. I called Shaw to see if they could offer us the same deal on a receiver, and "Voila" in a matter of days here we are with one.
Rob is so much happier, as now we can even get the CKCO Kitchener station. Whoohoo, catching up on the news in and about the old stomping grounds. Thanks Shaw Direct !!!
Today I also gave some seriuos thought to the Week 3 - Productivity Challenge from the Decluttering challenge I signed up for with at Carla's, over at My 1/2 Dozen Daily. This is what I came up with to have completed for this week's challenge.
Before Christmas I had also began a "Rid your Freezer of Meat Prior to Buying More" Challenge with Cindy's Recipe Exchange on Facebook. Now our freezers have been rid of some of its contents, by consumption, I think it is time to organize what is left, as well as to start using up some of the fruit I put down this past Fall.
Usually by this time other Years I am getting low on fruit, but we have really cut back on the deserts. I have gone from baking once to twice a week, to maybe a couple of times a Month now?
