It was a couple of yr earlier than we purchased a brand new automobile. We favored it very a lot.
Nevertheless, there may be one exception that I shared with you just a few months in the past: I can now not play music whereas driving to Massena and again. Like most vehicles today, I do know, there is no CD participant anymore.
I like listening to music whereas driving. I like listening to Reen, Dalton and John on CKON FM.
I additionally listened to FM 99.3 from Potsdam. It is a station fully dedicated to the music of the Nineteen Eighties.
At first I questioned why I used to be so conversant in the style after which I noticed our oldest son had a lot of the data within the 80s and our youngest son was a DJ for about 20 years. that point. I’ll ship gear and plenty of occasions pursue dances the place he’s the DJ.
Like I did, I’d hearken to music. All of those tracks are enjoyable to hearken to, however on most days not each music that performs is on my “playlist.” (CKON has a playlist, however I by no means thought anybody would care to truly play mine!)
Our niece downloaded apps to assist enjoying my very own music. When our son Gregg was right here lately, he plugged his cellphone into my automobile radio and sure, there was music.
He requested me which artist I needed to hearken to after which performed that artist’s music. That is nice, however what about my CD assortment?
Nonetheless one thing else bothers me. Though I knew Massena James C. Phillips’ music could possibly be discovered on YouTube, I did not suppose I’d discover a James C. Phillips CD on my cellphone to play.
After I shared my issues via this column just a few months in the past, a loyal reader of the column instructed that I purchase a transportable CD participant. She was type sufficient to even ship me a photograph of the moveable CD participant she has.
I appeared for one within the electronics part of an area retailer and located nothing. I ordered a transportable CD participant on-line.
It is available in competitors with a sparse guidebook. There are completely no directions on how I can join the CD participant to my automobile radio, or even when that may be performed.
I went to the electronics division at Walmart and requested my associate Kevin how I may join the gadget to my automobile. I defined my dilemma.
He requested just a few questions after which instantly went to a close-by shelf and handed me a rope. Kevin additionally gave me good and simple to know directions!
I adopted Kevin’s directions, and on Sunday morning I drove to Massena with Elvis singing the songs I like on my CD. After that first attempt, I pulled out the James C. Phillips CD – one in all my favorites.
It was good to listen to this superb artist on the keyboard play one in all my favourite tracks, “Pleasure to the World”. The foremost modifications on the particular company on East Orvis Avenue are superb.
Many because of my buddy for her suggestion, my son and niece for his or her help, and Kevin at Walmart who described precisely what I may do and located the wire. appropriate for my use. Now I can hearken to my favourite CDs. What pleasure!
Now that I can join and hearken to CDs, to be trustworthy, I feel it is time for a brand new James C. Phillips CD – maybe together with “Stars and Stripes Without end”! Till then, I will be pleased to hearken to my Christmas CDs that includes this nice native musician.

The expiration date for the yogurt I purchased this week is October. I used to be shocked to see that day. I do know it is nearing the top of August, and discussions and purchasing for faculties are on the forefront.
I’ve talked about it earlier than: I like residing within the northern countryside, the place we are able to expertise and benefit from the altering seasons. My sisters stay in California, the place there is no such thing as a season, I do know. I like the inexperienced grass of summer season, the contemporary greens within the backyard, and the fantastic thing about the hummingbird in my hanging basket.
Autumn brings us breathtaking magnificence, however I am not fairly prepared for October but. Take a second this week and luxuriate in the fantastic thing about an August day within the North of the nation – the sky. inexperienced, the sound of horses’ hooves on the pavement as they cross our home, the fantastic thing about the timber within the wind and the ships passing by the Seaway and the enjoyment of stopping at Candy Treats on a windy Monday night.
Fortunately, the fantastic thing about a northern nation day has no expiration date. Get pleasure from as we speak (even when it rains a little bit as I write!), and sit up for tomorrow. Let’s not predict an October date that can come any sooner than we’d like.
