Tales From The Weird
Let me set the story. My father died fifteen years ago.
My mother calls me up the other day and says “something very strange happened before.” I said, “what.” She say’s, “This Saturday would have been our 61 wedding anniversary. I’m having coffee with Joe and the phone rings. I pick it up and nobody answering. I thought it was an automatic phone solicitor. Then I look at the phone to see who’s calling and it’s daddy. I show Joe the phone and she can’t believe it.”
As she’s telling me this, she crying. So since I don’t believe in ghost, I’m thinking there has to be a reason this happened. I call her back the next day to see what the phone number daddy called from. My mother says, “he called from my place.”
Let’s get this straight. My father’s ghost is in my mothers house, uses her phone to call her, at the same number.
Like I said, I don’t believe in ghost but this is just weird.
The “Dollar Tree” is my favorite place to go shopping. You can buy so much and pay so little. I have high blood pressure so I can’t use salt. I buy “Mrs. Dash.” Cost a lot of money. The Dollar Tree has Salt Free Seasoning that’s a good as Mrs. Dash for a dollar. I just bought 8 plates for 8 dollars. How do you beat that.

Came across this the other day on Facebook:
>>Dave Pike. The vibraphonist passed away earlier today at 77. Although not as well known as his contemporaries Bobby Hutcherson & Gary Burton, he made some excellent records including Pike’s Peak, It’s Time for Dave Pike, and Pike’s Groove. <<<<
The Facebook post came from http://www.jazzradio.com. I can’t find any other news about his death.
I discovered Dave Pike from the internet. I downloaded some of his albums. Then when I could, I bought the CD. Finding Pike on the net was a good find.
I find that as I get older, I’m listening to more Jazz and less Rock. The problem I have with Rock is that I’m not into the new bands that much and I’ve listened to the old bands way too many times. I’m sure that after awhile of not hearing Rock, I’ll go back to it and it’ll sound fresh again.
This guy Rocks. I me he Jazzs.
I was reading that a lot of people are mad with Ariana Grande for saying she hated America. That don’t bother me cause I don’t care what she thinks. What bothers me is her licking the doughnuts and putting them back. That’s really gross. People buy those. They don’t want her spit on it.
If I was her, I would stay away from restaurants for a long time. Who knows what they’re going to do to her food in the kitchen.
I bought a Ninja blender the other day. Everybody was telling me you can make smoothies in them. I never had one in my life so I went to youtube to find out how to make them.
They got to be kidding. First of all you have to buy half the fruit stand to make one. Then it takes an hour, to cut up the fruit, skin it and make sure it all fits in the blender. I would rather just eat the fruit. It’s a lot easier.
