Yesterday we shopped for a new dresser for the bedroom. Really hard to find one with the specifications that we need...like no deeper than 15 inches. We hit a couple furniture stores and found one we really liked, including the fact that it was only 14 inches deep. Three large drawers, painted an antique red (we can always repaint) and perfect....

So, we go home, John gets the urge to tear things up, so he tore apart the dresser in the bedroom and took it to Goodwill. Nice job, honey, only my clothes are now in a plastic bag...lol. Today, he took a trip back to the furniture store only to find out that the drawers only come out 3 inches! What?? And, no way to remove the drawers as he will have to secure the dresser to the wall. A Bummer! I send him to another large furniture store, but to no avail. Finding 15 inches in depth is going to be quite a search. But, we are up to the task...just have to rummage through plastic bags for a little while. He will probably take a look at other stores while I am in Rhode Island. I am pretty sure I can trust him with this task....most things are returnable.

Getting ready for my trip to see my son, Michael. Am pretty excited about that...and the grand-girls...Yay! Getting stuff ready will take a bit as I am used to short sleeves, shorts and sandals. He will be having weather in the 50's so time to search for my winter clothes. I think my robe and coat will take one whole suitcase.

Off to pack up...

Ever wonder about the song "Johnny Be Good" by Chuck Berry? Of course you do...well wonder no longer.

"This song is based on Berry's life. It tells the tale of a boy with humble beginnings with a talent for guitar. Some details were changed: Berry was from St. Louis, not Louisiana, and he knew how to read and write very well. He graduated from beauty school with a degree in hairdressing and cosmetology.

The line, "That little country boy could play" was originally, "That little colored boy can play." Berry knew he had to change it if he wanted the song played on the radio.

Berry got the name "Johnny" from Johnnie Johnson, a piano player who collaborated with Berry on many songs, including "Maybellene," "Roll Over Beethoven" and "Sweet Little 16."

And, now you know!
