May 12 – For my birthday I really wanted a pair of cowboy boots.  I had lost mine in the move out here (they were in a box that didn’t get out here, alas.   I will be forever looking to replace the real cowboots) and there’s just something about them that I love.  Imagine my delight upon finding these at the Goodwill for $3.99…I also got a Casio keyboard (because I really want to learn to make music), which was the other thing I really wanted for my birthday (couched in terms of a musical instrument).  Both at the Goodwill on the same day.  I was grinning.
