It's Hard to Get By Just Upon a Smile

Here is a photo that Stinky took of the flooding Iowa River at sunset. It's the first one taken with my new phone.

I chose today's Saturday Scavenger Hunt word: Treat. I got a new treat this week - a phone. The screen on my old phone was cracking, and I was up for a new one. I got an LG phone. It is so, so nice. It has a full keyboard, so texting is a million times easier. Since you all know how much I hate to talk on the phone, you can understand how what a treat that will be for me.

Here are some trees surrounded by the Iowa River.

As I've said before, I love dorky ring tones. I found a site where I could send free ringtones to my phone. So, I have some new fun ones:

My girlfriends: "Milkshake" by Kelis - changed from "These Boots are Made for Walking" by Nancy Sinatra.

My guy friends: "The Banana Splits Themesong" by The Banana Splits - changed from nothing. I didn't have one for guys before.

My Family: "Insane in the Membrane" by Cypress Hill - changed from "Crazy Train" by Ozzy. Everyone in the world is crazy, but my family is my kind of crazy.

My daughters: "Wild World" by Cat Stevens - changed from "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N Roses. Stinky picked it and Coadster was happy with it, because it's one of her favorite Cat Stevens songs.

General ringtone for anyone else: "A Little Less Conversation" by Elvis Presley - changed from "Synchronicity II" by the Police.

So, that's my treat this week. For next week's word, I'm choosing Tara at Eclectic Spaghetti. Give us what you got.

It's flooding again?? I lived in IC from 1982 - 1997, so I was there for the great flood of 1993. Sounds like last summer was even worse. What will become of my beloved Iowa City?

I am so stealing "Crazy Train" for family calls when I get my next 'phone. I think I might use "Lawyers, Guns and Money" by Warren Zevon for calls from the studio.

Nice photos for a phone. I like the way you assign different music to different types of folk. I've been very boring... just some weird thing that was in my phone does everyone.

Glad to hear there are others who would rather text than talk.

Its good to treat yourself!

I wish I had the desire to have different ringtones, but I don't... but I like yours!

What a sweet treat! I need a new phone, but it is definitely something that will be put off a bit. I love all your ringtones.
