Monday Musings - September 10, 2012

1. It is really demoralizing to leave a baseball game after 40,000 fans showed up but the team didn't and wound up getting blown out. On top of that, the O's lost to the Yankees.

2. There is something depressing about realizing that the end of summer is as close as it is--and it was a great summer.

3. We had a loud humming noise associated with a new set of tires on Chris' car only to find out that we have a bad wheel bearing.  I have some work to do.

4. Opening Sunday of the NFL season and I was at a baseball game--how cool is that? So much for Sunday Ticket.

5. Makayla had a check-up last week--she has bad knees. Otherwise, she's healthy but still freaked out about the wood floors. They don't give dogs anti-anxiety medicine.

6. An amazing thing happened on Friday while trying to get back home after a week in Denver, I called to change my travel reservations less than six hours before the flight I wanted to got on--and they had a seat and I pulled it off, getting back a whole day early.

7. I'm not very happy with my Samsung Blu-ray player. It won't update itself and none of the special features work. It is only a year and a half old--and now all it will do is play Blu-ray's and DVDs. It was out of warranty in March. I called Samsung support for help--and they didn't.

8. I was reassured by the news that Congress is returning to work this week after their five week vacation. I wonder, will they really work?

9. Saw an interesting phrase on a greeting card: “Always aim for the Moon, even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.” -- W. Clement Stone
