Darn! I have to return the new iPod. Something isn't right about it.
When I turn it on, I hear music. yeah, I know, that's what is supposed to happen. Bu-u-u-ut .... The music is coming out of the iPod, faintly, tinny, not from the ear buds.
In fact, what I hear in the ear buds is also faint and tinny. I tried different ear buds, just in case, but they were no better, and I noticed when I plugged the ones that came with it back in, there seemed to be a bad connection in the plug. Music went off and on if it is wiggled. That's clearly not right.
So tomorrow, I'm back to exchange it. gah. I hate having to exchange things. Not that it is hard or that they give me problems, but I just simply hate the lag in time for my enjoying my newly bought "whatever." But I will. As if there were a choice.
Tomorrow I will exchange it after having another birthday lunch with friends. We are celebrating my birthday and that of a friend, Lynne, whose BD is Sunday. I'm looking forward to it. Three of my favorite people and me, what could be better?
Yesterday I did such a dingy thing. I had put in a new door knob a couple weeks ago as the locking mechanism in the old one had broken. You probably know a door knob kit comes with two keys. I intended to get some extras made, but hadn't remembered it. And the inevitable happened, the reason I always make some extras.
I'd gone into Ruidoso and when I came home, I couldn't get in because I didn't have my house key. Almost immediately I knew where it was. When I walked with the dogs, I put my house key in the tiny zippered pocket on the leg of my walking pants, and I never took it out. My choices were .... break into my own house, removing a screen and wrestling with a window to raise it enough to crawl in, a process that would take probably 20-30 minutes of sweaty work, if it even worked. Or .... drive into Capitan, get the other key from Linda and while I'm there, have duplicate keys made. That process wouldn't take much more time and would resolve the possible future repetition of my faux pas. Well, basically no question. I now have a key hidden outside, and one to carry in the car. All bases are covered! Hopefully.
Sometimes I surprise (or would that be embarrass?) myself. How can a smart person like me do such thoughtless acts? Oh, well. I saw something on Facebook today, and it fits the situation:
