Gilligan's Island, Alexa Calendar Issues, and Movie Night

Well, my thoughts are scattered this morning.  But at least sleep was good.  I think.  During my sleep, I encountered the Gilligan's Island theme song and kept singing it through the night remembering some of the words. I couldn't remember all of them though.  So I had to look it up this morning!

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port
Aboard this tiny ship.

The mate was a mighty sailing man,
The skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day
For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.

The weather started getting rough,
The tiny ship was tossed,
If not for the courage of the fearless crew
The Minnow would be lost, the Minnow would be lost.

The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle
With Gilligan
The Skipper too,
A millionaire and his wife,
A movie star
The professor and Mary Ann,
Here on Gilligan's Isle.

Full Version Continues:

So this is the tale about castaways,
They're here for a long, long time,
They'll have to make the best of things,
It's an uphill climb.

The first mate and his Skipper too,
Will do their very best,
To make the others comfortable,
In their tropic island nest.

No phone, no lights, no motor car,
Not a single luxury,
Like Robinson Crusoe,
It's primitive as can be.

So join us here each week my friend,
You're sure to get a smile,
From seven stranded castaways,
Here on "Gilligan's Isle." 

So now that I have that looked up I can go on with life.   lol 

I believe we are supposed to see sunshine today, if I understood Alexa.  After a lot of gloomy work days, I'm going to be so glad to see some sun.  

Speaking of Alexa, I'm having troubles with the calendar.  It's not recognizing what I put on there, unless there is a lag.  I thought it was working before.  I will have to figure this out, b/c I want to be able to use this feature.  But, I probably will have to play with it this weekend.  

Yesterday my phone had too much storage.  I've added a lot lately.  And it won't update.  I had to delete some things off my phone and make some changes.  Technology!  Oh my!  It's such a mess sometimes trying to do what we want. 

We had a good dinner last night.  Hamburger vegetable Soup, corn on the cob, and pasta salad.  Maybe an odd combination but it was good.  I played the Tropical Farmville Game and went to bed by 9:00.  Sleep was good.  But apparently Gilligan wanted to be in my dreams.  Perhaps it's b/c of the Tropical Island Farmville Game, that there was some memory connection that occurred inside my brain overnight.  Hmmmm.  Maybe.  I certainly haven't even thought of Gilligan's Island lately.  

We are going to see The Founder tonight if I can get the tickets to work ok.  I can't get them til 2:00 I think.  It was about that time last time.  I have to buy them 7 days apart.  I think it may be exactly 7 days.  Not sure.  We may have to skip a week so I can go back to buying the day before instead of just a few hours before.  The goal is to go eat at the new "burgah" place, Burger Republic before hand, if there is time.  I think there will be. 

My address book should arrive today.  

I need to go to the grocery, but will probably be Thursday night before I go.  

Katy coming over and we are all going out to eat Wed night - as Cody is working.  So I offered to use my Cracker Barrel or Olive Garden gift card.  We'll see.  Might hit a shop or two after. 
And again, things sometimes change. So we'll see. 

That is all I know.  Gonna do Farmville again real quick.  Get some tapioca and cotton growing on the island for the helicopter order.  lol 


  1. I too have had phone storage problems and finally had to delete all the pictures stored on it. I like to have them on my phone, but something had to do. I'm not buying more storage. I took a couple of apps off that I rarely use too. Sounds like a busy but good week ahead for you. Hope you have a terrific Tuesday.

  2. There was as big article about your Alexa ...well not ..your...Alexa but all about it how it works etc..now I am a little bit wiser......little being the correct word !!
    Mary did ask if you had to be plugged into the Internet to have it working ? It wasn't something I could answer, but I assume you do...??......hope today has gone well at work, and that you have a good night tonight. Looking forward to hearing all about it tomorrow xxxx

  3. If you have tapioca growing on the island, make me some pudding, pretty please. Was craving it earlier. YUM.
