Friday Roundup, the Weekend is Here!

Do you remember your first kiss? How your heart beat so hard and fast you thought surely it would burst out of your chest? I do. I caught these two kissing the other day.

Then they realized they had been caught.
I think they're a little young for this, don't you?

I've been busy. Yesterday I took a ton of pictures. I need a better camera. I've been looking at an Olympus. It has all I want and more. Plus it takes sequential shots! How cool it would be to capture sequences without waiting for that digital to do whatever it does between shots.

Yesterday I also decided that we need a new computer. Ours is starting to really lag, hang up, and be just plain slow. Well, it's either the computer, or it's the DSL. I'm voting for the computer.

I did a lot of updating and site work yesterday. I added a new widget here for the reviews I've been doing at Shared Reviews. That site is turning into a pretty good side-line for a lot of people. I've even made a little money. I'm going to work on bumping that up a bit since it takes so little time.

They only require 750 characters for the reviews. That's short. Mine are running about 1400. It takes me a few minutes to write a review and post it. Then I vote on reviews--takes only a few minutes of my time. Then I get paid. It doesn't get any better than that.

I wrote an article and submitted it yesterday also. (I actually did two but one was just for fun). I don't know if they're going to buy the real one yet. I think the topic was pretty time conscious and should remain "evergreen."

Evergreen articles are it online. That's what everyone wants. Something that will stand the test of time. Something that will be hit over and over again. Okay, so that's what I will give them.

Yesterday was a busy day for me. Today will be also.

This weekend we will be taking the boat out for a test run. We completed all of the wiring, did the tilt trim unit, installed the new extinguisher, and battened down the hatches. The driveway run proved well, now it's time to put it in the water. If we forget the plug, all will be fine because we got the new bilge pump in also.

This should prove to be a great weekend. I hope everyone has a good one!

  1. Hi! It was a very long time ago but I remember it like it was yesterday.

    I remember her face, the smell of her hair and the taste of her lips.

    Then she took me back to her parents place and that was the end of that!

    Take Care,

  2. Okay, that was weird. I better check something and try again...

  3. My comments have been acting strange...

    So, Hi Peter! You crack me up! I read your last post about the visit. The car ride description was Priceless!!!

    Have a good one!

  4. Oh gee...yes, I think I was about five and her name was Sharon Lyons...I have a picture somewhere. She's in a nice dress and I'm dressed up in my "mini-me" Army fatigues.

    She must have made an impression...there are literally dozens of girls I kissed since then whose full names escape me. ;)

  5. Ah J.L., that's sweet. All those other girls are reading this right now and saying, "I can't believe he forgot my name!!!"

    Sharon Lyons would make a great character name.
