No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out your horn." - Charlie Parker

Another glorious day in paradise.

The day began early by a half an hour for me. Plus Bailey was in a pestering mood. Actually I woke up in a panic because of a dream. So, maybe, Bailey knew I was having a bad dream and woke me up because of it.

Thus began my day at 8 a.m. sharp.

I take my morning medications, fed and watered the cat, and then sat down to read my morning inspirational reading which includes reading my daily Bible. This is a new version of the Bible in modern languages.

I have to tell you, I don't like it. Yes, it is somewhat easier to read but those unpronounceable names still slow me up. I attempt to sound them out phonetically but I am not sure I am pronouncing them right.

The other reason I don't like this Bible is because I grew up with the King James Version. I like the thees, thous, willst, dost and all the other words that make the King James Bible what it is. Maybe with this month's paycheck, I can purchase a King James daily Bible. Will I be any happier? Most likely but I still won't be able to pronounce those names any more than I do now.

Last night I began the Jim Patterson book "10th Anniversary." I finished that book this morning. Now I am on the second one in the list below.

Needless to say, when Michael went to the library today to check on DVDs and to return the book mentioned above, I did not go into the library with him.

The rest of our day was spent at our storage unit. Since we do not have a garage or a basement, we have to store what does not fit in the apartment or to keep until we find a place in the apartment for our stuff.

Besides organizing what is in this little cubicle, Michael is looking for scrape metal to sell. The funds from this sale can be used for gas money for the truck or possibly some new socks for him since his are beginning to fall apart.

The other part of the organization is to throw out what is just clutter. We have been going over there the last three days and have come home with three or four bags or boxes of junk.

The funny part about this today was Michael had dumped the mess in the dumpster. Once inside the apartment he realized he had thrown out a wireless mouse. "Drats," he says to me. Well, he didn't say drats but you can insert the appropriate word that comes to your mind.

It took three trips to the dumpster, to where he finally backed the truck up to the trash bin and from there, sorted through the two boxes of junk and found that mouse. His feeling is: You never know when you might want the use of a mouse.

This is true, considering I only use my touch pad since I have had my lap top. There have been times I wished I had a mouse. Oh well, time will tell.

At least Michael only went on a partial dumpster dive from the back of his truck.
