Good morning, JM,

Happy Labor Day, the unofficial end of summer!

Besides the events you mentioned (scheduled this past weekend for Atlanta), there were actually 2 or 3 MORE in the city! :(

Nothing special planned for here today. There might be a thing or 2 for me to do, but I pretty much got everything done yesterday. I guess I'll just be hangin' around then. :)

Hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday!

Good Evening, JMBoykinII ♩ I hope you and your family had a blessed Labor Day Sunday! Enjoy the rest of your long holiday weekend! {{{{Hugs}}}} for you and yours. Yes, I had a great day today at Church with sharing my incredible testimony of how God turned my career around, and doing errands with family to shop the Labor Day weekend sales, since I have to work tomorrow.

You're welcome for the prayers for your Cousin's healing. I thank God he is recovering, and I hope and pray he will soon be well enough to return home again. Thanks for remembering how I shared about my asthma, and how finding the right Doctor who took a unique holistic approach to treating me, made all the difference! Not even my former Asthma Specialist could help me achieve improved health like my current primary care Doctor did for me! PTL for my improved health!

Here is a picture at church of me sharing the testimony of how I landed my new career as Assistant Manager of Keyboard Concepts!

After Church I did lots of errands with family, since that is the only chance I have to really shop the Labor Day sales well, since tomorrow I have to √ in to work, but with shorter work hours.

Good Night!

munchkins mom - Good afternoon. I wait to hear your review.

HouHrl - Good afternoon.

Claudie - Can just imagine how's the traffic in and around Atlanta. The Braves, Jackets, and Dogs playing in town and the Chick-fil-a game at the Dome. I know that Athens is a little out but it still shares some of the suburban roads. See you next Saturday.

Good morning, JM,

It won't be a busy day for us today (it usually isn't on the day after a get-together). Race weekend continues here (the race track is only about 10 miles west of us), so hubby and I will definitely be staying home (not that we had plans to go out today anyway); between the holiday and the race, there are waaaaay too many people down by our interstate exit (where there's an outlet mall and lots and lots of eating places). Not a hard decision to make at all. :)

Have a great day!

Good Morning, JMBoykinII ♩ Thank you for the updates about your Cousin in the hospital, and you're welcome for prayers for his healing. Thank God he is improving, is now breathing on his own, and is out of the ICU. Continued prayers for your Cousin's full healing and recovery.

I know how terrible it is to have respiratory issues, as I have been a lifelong asthmatic. My asthma was at its worst from my childhood through my early adulthood. I thank God I am doing much better now and rarely have asthma, after I found my current Doctor in 2003 and got holistic, alternative, and integrative medical care. Many prayers and the unique healthy approaches of my current Doctor really made a huge difference in my present improved health! PTL!

Wishing you and yours a blessed Labor Day weekend! {{{{Hugs}}}} for all of you.

Thank you for rejoicing with me on my positive experiences with my new job, and for your continued prayers for my success with my career and life! I truly appreciate all the moral support you have faithfully shared with me through the years! I hope and pray we can see each other face-to-face again in the future. You have an awesome family. Enjoy your family time in Atlanta! {{{{Hugs}}}} for you and yours.

Thankfully I got a good night's sleep after my first two days of work with not enough sleep in between 9 hour work shifts. Today I look forward to enjoying my Church's Beach Picnic at Bolsa Chica State Beach in Huntington Beach, CA! That will be my Labor Day celebration since I will not have Labor Day Monday off from work, but shorter work hours on that day. My Mom and I will do errands and tasks as needed before and after visiting the beach today.

Have a Wonderful Labor Day Weekend!

Good morning, JM,

Today will not be a stay-at-home day for me. Hubby and I will pick up Mom about 10:30 and then drive up to my brother's house for a late summer family get-together (he lives about 45 minutes northeast of where Mom lives). My sister and her husband will definitely be there, but I'm not sure who else is coming; usually this gathering is a little smaller than the one we have at my house in late Spring. It'll be good to see everybuddy today. :)

Have a great day!

Good Evening, JMBoykinII ♫ Thank you for sharing about your day off from work today with visiting your Cousin in the hospital. Prayers for the healing of your Cousin.

Happy Birthday to your Daughter! I am glad you celebrated it for her at Red Lobster, followed by a big birthday cookie cake! {{{{Hugs}}}} for you and your family.

I thank God that Day #1 at work was such a wonderful, exciting, and happy workday for me! Thank you for all the likes on FB on my Life Event of starting work yesterday at Keyboard Concepts, and the pictures of me on my first day of work. God surely had other plans for my life, of which I had no idea of, but which are great and wonderful plans for my life, career, and hope for my future!

Thankfully I had a wonderful Day #2 at work with additional training, and a slower day to enjoy the downtime. Fortunately my new Bosses allow us to do as we please during downtime, including internet access and social media. As long as we pay attention to our work duties first, and to our Customers as they come in the door.

Good Night!

Good morning, JM,

Even the 2nd and 3rd stringers on the Falcons team looked pretty good last night. Tough choice on some of the players (to stay), though.

I'll be staying home today; I have many, many things to try and get done today b/c tomorrow has plans. Well, I will have Sunday, too, but I'll see what I can get done today.

:)

Have a great day!

Good evening JM

We're on the same wavelength here. I thought of MJ not making the basketball team the first time he tried out. As we told her, keep practicing.

With this week's jukebox tune, I could talk a bit about the artist, mentioning she sang this and acted in the movie of the same name as well as that the song peaked at #4 in 1980. But I'd rather share a story about this song instead.

Going through school there are certain teachers we all hope to have. The "cool teacher" was wanted by everyone, but there were only 25 or so seats in the classroom. I got that cool teacher in 5th grade. It was Lubeck's 5th and 6th grade music teacher Mrs. Enloe. She played piano exceptionally well and knew two popular songs. One was the Oak Ridge Boys' "Elvira" and the other was tonight's jukebox tune. Getting ready to head out to board the bus nearly every evening, you could catch Mrs. Enloe's 5th grade class singing this popular tune from 1980. I still know all the lyrics to this day. Who says music doesn't soothe the savage 5th grader?

I - Irene Cara - "Fame"

Have a good holiday weekend. See you Monday night.

Good morning, JM

Noooo! The Falcons play tonight at 6 PM ET! I just checked and ALL of the last preseason games are on tonight.

It was a really good visit to Mom's doctor yesterday morning! Not much of a wait time at all, and really, really good numbers with all of her blood work; in fact, some of the numbers were disgustingly GREAT! Now I'm just hoping for a good reading on her protimes. <crosses fingers>

It's going to be a busy morning for me today; I'm going to the chiro for a 9:30 appointment and then heading over to the grocery store. No senior discount this week. :( Anyway, I sure am hoping that I get into the chiro on time. <crosses fingers>

Have a great day!

Claudie - Good morning. I did not know that the Falcons were playing last night, I will go and check out the score after posting here. The drive to Birmingham is about 30 minutes longer than the trip to Atlanta, it will take us 2 1/2 hours to get there. We will leave around 7 in the morning. I might be late with my posts tomorrow.

trevor - Good morning and hi de ho.

MusicTeacher - Good afternoon. I am so excited about the start of your new job. I do understand that it will be difficult to post on GB in the morning. By the time you read this post, you would have completed your first day of work, I hope that it went well. {{{hugs}}}

munchkins mom - Good morning. Did the Red Sox win the other day when some of the munchkins attended the game?

Dino - Hi. My holiday starts this afternoon, when I leave work and I do not return back to work until Tuesday. I am looking forward to the four days off. Have a nice visit with your family. Let Lanie know that Michael Jordan was cut from his high school team. Her day will come.

Good evening JM

My plans I think will involve a trip to Parkersburg to my parent's house. I get an extra night off of work so I may wind up doing that.

The dream of Lanie being the family's next Lady Panther basketball player has come to an end this evening. She found out she did not make the cut:-( According to my Mom, in a text from this evening, there was 19 4th and 5th graders for him to pick from as well as 8 3rd graders. Unfortunately, he couldn't pick them all. I sent a message back offering some encouraging words and told her to keep practicing. There's always next year and now she has 365 additional days to practice and work toward making it next year. Interesting, Michael Jordan was actually cut from his HS team the first time he tried out as well. We all know how that turned out.

Dino's Jukebox tomorrow night. I've tossed around different ideas and have eliminated a few "I" artists. One of those included Iron Butterfly's "Inna Godda Davida." I like the song and own the CD, but the song is over 17 minutes long. Another band was modern rock/alternative band Incubus. It's not that I don't know a lot about them, but I'm just not a huge fan of their music. Even I have my dislikes. So I'm down to Irene Cara and INXS. I'll flip a coin later. I just stopped earlier to fill up the car, anyone have a quarter I can borrow?

Thank you so much for rejoicing with me on my new career as Assistant Manager of Keyboard Concepts! Thank you also for the like and congratulations on my latest FB update and picture about the new job! I will post another update about my new job on FB tomorrow with a Life Event update, since FB wants me to list the starting date of work on my FB Timeline, and that will be tomorrow. Looking forward to starting this new chapter of my life. Please look for that upcoming FB post later on. PTL!

Today my Mom and I will be attending our noontime Prayer Meeting, which will be my last Prayer Meeting before I start my new full-time career as Assistant Manager of Keyboard Concepts tomorrow morning. I decided to start my new job tomorrow because I wanted to visit my Prayer Meeting group one more time today and thank all of them for their faithful prayers and moral support during this past year with the struggles of losing too many Students and job searches. After the Prayer Meeting, my Mom and I will do errands and tasks as needed before I start my full-time career tomorrow.

★ Due to my new job commitment tomorrow, I will change up my weekday GB Studio posting patterns, by doing my GB replies and rounds in the evenings, instead of GB Studio replies and rounds twice daily on mornings and evenings.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Yeah! Another cool, cool morning here! 61° and a dew point of 59°. :)

The Falcons last preseason game, is on, believe it or not, at 6 PM ET tomorrow; it's in Jacksonville. Weird time!

When do you leave for Birmingham? That's not a very long trip, is it? I know from where we live, it's just a coupla hours of actual driving time. That doesn't include the time zone change, though.

Have a great day!

Good evening JM

Yes, it's good to see her following in her footsteps.

With the yard done yesterday, I turned my attention to the roof and the gutters. They needed cleaning and were long overdue. Some of the dirt had set in and was a lot like pulling up carpet so it came up neatly. Walking on a roof can alleviate a fear of heights. Luckily, our house is one story.

Weather is cooperative for outside activity. The neighbors across from work here (our building sits in a residential area) have a bonfire going full steam. Clear evening. Temps still around 70 here.

Good morning, JM,

Aaaahhh! Such a nice cool morning!! 62° and a dew point of 59°! Wonderful!

The yard man came yesterday, though, not earlier, and got everything looking nice. I decided to go ahead and go out to do 'errands' afterwards anyway....one to take Mom some tomatoes (that probably could have waited until today, but the tomatoes were REALLY ripe and she REALLY wanted a tomato sandwich!) and the other to get to the bank to deposit a coupla checks. Hubby came, too and we stopped (before going home) at an eating place and had breakfast for lunch. :)

Big plans for me today? We'll, I'll be taking Mom to WM this morning! :) I want to see how her tomato sandwich was (for dinner last night), too.

Have a great day!

Good evening JM

Thanks. Lanie really looks up to Emily. That's part of why she's trying out for the team.
To keep you up to date on Lanie, her first day of tryouts went well. Coach Mike, that coached the team when Emily played there, is still there. He's a super good guy in my book. If she makes it, she'll have a great coach starting her out. We'll know if she makes the team later in the week.

Yard is caught up for a few days. Looking for a few dry days to where just maybe the grass won't grow as fast. I readjusted the mower deck as well to where it sits a bit higher and runs a bit smoother. It still took 3 hours to mow, but it got done. Thank goodness it wasn't very humid like it was Sunday.

Slow evening here otherwise.

Thank you for your prayers for today's and tomorrow's music job interviews. I will keep you posted here at my Studio and at your GB Home. Once I am officially confirmed into a new job, then I will post the excellent news on FB.

Thank you also for the likes on some of my recent FB picture uploads over the past few days. I appreciate it!

Regarding the earthquake that woke me up from my nap last night, it was a minor one, and from what I heard from family and some friends on FB, it was just a jolt. But thankfully it was not strong enough to cause any damages, and all is well with me, my family, and the community.

You're welcome for the advice on how to close up your old Studio topic and create a new one with you as the Author. Doing that also makes it much easier for other GB's to find you around here. I even gained some new Visitors because of the changes that I made a few weeks ago with the Studio move.

Today I have a Job Interview at the Music Store in Orange County. This is the best job offer I have found so far. Please pray for my job interview today. After the Job Interview, I look forward to the rest of the day to do tasks and errands.

Happy Monday!

Good morning, JM,

I can already tell it's cooler this morning; the temp's only 68° at my house and the dew point's 63°, way better than where it's been in the low 70s. Looking for a nicer day.

I can also tell the sun's coming up later now, too. It used to be almost light at 6 AM and now it's not starting to get light until almost 7. Autumn's a-comin'!

There are actually lots of fast food-type places on our exit; we'll decide when we see what time you'll be down this way.

Have a great day!

Good Evening, JMBoykinII ♩ I hope you and yours had a blessed Sunday at Church and afterward. {{{{Hugs}}}} for you and yours.

Thank you so much for your encouraging words and prayers for my job prospect with the upcoming interview at the Music Store tomorrow. I will definitely keep you posted about my two interviews this week.

You're welcome for the tips on how to start your own new Studio topic, post a forwarding link to you new Studio topic, close up the old one with a Moderator's help, and then have your very own topic. I am not sure if you have posted links around here on GB, but there is the "Insert link" tab to the left of the message that you could use to add any links here from GB or outside GB.

Thankfully I had a nice Sunday at Church, with errands, and with a 3 hour nap. I awoke from my 3 hour nap at 7:50 PM when a minor 3.3 earthquake struck in San Pedro, CA. I thank God all is well with us and there are no problems.

Good Night!

Good evening JM

Glad you liked the "Weird Al" video. This was done right about the time, they were getting ready to bring back Jeopardy with Alex Trebek hosting.

Back in the saddle again on a Sunday night. First week of school went well for all the kiddos. Spent Saturday afternoon hanging out at Mom and Dad's. Had a good visit. Looks like my Niece, Lanie could follow in the footsteps of her basketball playing Cousin as she'll tryout for the Lady Panthers at Lubeck on Monday afternoon. Pretty excited for her as she's talked about it all afternoon. We'll know if she makes the team later this week.

Meanwhile, the Lady Bobcat in the family got the opportunity to meet her next coach that will take over the 7th/8th grade team this Winter. He went to the school last week and ate lunch with only 5 or 6 of the girls he's wanting for the team this year. Emily was one of them. We all know going further up in the grades, the opponent is quicker and better. Will be interested in seeing how they play out under a new coach. We'll get our first look when he coaches the Fall Fun league for them.

Hot and humid here. Temps approaching 90 for only the third time this year.

Claudie - If the Waffle House is busy, we can stop at any place that sells coffee to meet. We may get there earlier, I will let you know early in the week leading to the 6th.

MusicTeacher - Good morning. The move to a new studio seems simple, thanks to your instructions. I will try it this upcoming weekend. Happy first birthday to the daughter of one of your church members. Have a wonderful Sunday. {{{hugs}}}

trevor - Good morning and hi de ho.

HouHrl - Good morning.

munchkins mom - Good morning. You must send some homemade ice cream via email...smile.

Hi JM, some of the older munchkins will be attending the game today to help Uncle Mike with his younger munchkins. The rest of us are staying home to get ready for a cookout. Dad and Jack are making ice cream.

Good morning, JM,

Boy, did I ever have computer problems yesterday, but thanks to my brother, I can get back onto the internet! For some reason or another, late morning yesterday, I couldn't get onto the internet, though, I still had a connection. I finally got ahold of Brother, and, right before hubby and I left for the Falcons' game, he was able to get things straightened out (via phone and Team Viewer). Whew!

Not a good night (last night) for the Falcons OR the Braves! :(

Another hot day today (with high humidity and dew points) here in the Atlanta area. UGH! I believe I will just stay home today.

Have a great day!

Good Morning, JMBoykinII ♬ I am glad your family had a nice Friday at the movies. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Saturday and weekend. {{{{Hugs}}}} for you and yours.

Regarding changing your Studio here, the way to do that is to start a new topic, which will be your Studio, post a link here at your old Studio to redirect your friends to your new Studio, and then contact a Moderator to request a lock up your old Studio. That is how I did it.

Thank you for your kind thoughts for my time with visiting relatives from NY yesterday. I plan on uploading the pictures of their visit tonight on FB.

Thank you also for your kind thoughts for resuming my job searches. I did just that yesterday, and thankfully I found three job leads, two for Music Teaching at other Studios, and one FT opening for a Music Store in Fountain Valley. Of the three, the Music Store job sounds most promising. I have a job interview for the Music Store on Monday. Please pray for that interview.

I am at Church now because I had to take my Mom for her Evangelism Explosion Class. During my Mom's class, I will continue my GB rounds using the Church's WI-Fi, and then hang out at some stores nearby if there is extra time. After her Class is over, I will return to Church to participate with her in the Food Boxes Outreach Ministry. We will be knocking on doors around our poor neighborhoods near the Church and distributing food boxes and praying for those who indicate needs to us. This afternoon we will be attending the 1st Birthday Party of a Church's Member's Daughter at their family's home in Bellflower, CA. After the Party, we will have the rest of the day to do as we please.

Have a Nice Saturday!
