These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Happy birthday to me!!

I bought myself a birthday present.

I don't know why that turned sideways, but oh well. My old iPod died. Well, not completely, but it's on life support. Literally. As long as it has a power source attached, it plays, so I will leave it in the dock of my sound system for music here at home. And now I have this one that I can take with me when I go out.

It is charged and synced now. See? it is syncing in this photo. I plan to down load some audio books to it for traveling. It will be easier than having to change CDs in the player. I can just plug in the iPod and gooooooooooo!

Happy birthday to me,
Happy birthday to me,
Happy birthday, I love me!
Happy birthday to me!!!!


  1. Love it!! You're such a techie!! Can you come explain my new phone to me? lol

  2. Happy Happy Birthday!! (-:

    How long did your Ipod last before it had to be put on life support?

    I have had a couple Mp3 players and I get frustrated because they only seem to last about a year. I thinkg they are prissy little machines and I am thinking of returning to a turntable and LPs.

  3. I don't know what it is but there is something good about buying oneself a birthday gift. I think for me it is because I always buy for everyone else so when I buy for me I feel special! I think thats the same ipod my Katie has! Love Di ♥

  4. YG, sure!! Bring it down! We'll have a good visit and have phone lessons!

    Mary, thanks for the BD wishes!

    The iPod lasted nearly 5 years. I think it might have lasted longer, but I just recently discovered that when I leave it in the dock, turn off the sound system without turning it off individually, it continued to play, without me knowing it as the sound was off. I suspect that wore out the battery.

    I understand about the LPs, but when I hadn't played them for about 8 years as I had everything on CD by then, I sold the collection. I love the iPod for the portability.

    Di, I agree. It is sweet to pick our own gift; we know it will be right! I looked at several iPods, and this was one of the least expensive, but I didn't need, wouldn't use some of the features on the others. I simply want to listen to music, and put a few audio books on it. Just what I want

  5. What a great gift for yourself!!! Were you able to transfer the music from your old iPod to the new one? I know the music is stored on your computer, but I thought you could only hook one iPod up to your computer. Just curious in case my iPod ever dies on me.

  6. Caroline, I downloaded from my computer to the new one. It might depend on the music program you use, but I have iTunes, and when I connect the iPod to the computer, it automatically updates/syncs. I have "playlists" of my favorite music saved in iTunes and all I have to do is select which ones I want on the iPod. Does that make sense? Both iPods have the same music right now, but I will probably change that in the future. I'll sync the old one soon and see if the computer have convulsions! I'll let you know.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
