    That is really nice of you Ina I. Wonder to have thought of inviting my Honey and me to visit you. My Son-in-law still goes to Houston once in awhile and the train still goes there too. If the invite to visit you is an open invitation...then one day you just may see me (my Honey won't want to leave his porch.) on your porch. :)

    Ooooh I do hope you can make the trip to see Ina, @Babs Hunt ...I think you'll have a lovely visit, you are both such nice sweet people... you're bound to get along... :D

    I wish I could come too... but it would take more than a couple of buses to get there :D:D:D

    Yeah...it would probably be fun to take a train to Houston and then call Uber to take me to Ina's home. :D That's about as much travel excitement as I can muster up right now. :)

    Have already stated that my wife wasn't the "quiet" type and, when in the mood, I'm not either. Well, yesterday we were at a Vinyl (record), CD and Cassette Show. We were curious, so we stopped by. She bought a two CD set of hits by Jackie Wilson. She loves the guy and for an hour or so, all I heard was Jackie Wilson songs in our vehicle. One thing for sure, I'm not a big fan of that singer like she is.

    How nice of you to listen to the music your wife likes to Cody. My Honey doesn't really care for Sonny and Cher but he listens when I play their CD that I love. When you love someone that's the kind of nice things you do. :)

    Yep!
    She does have a cd case with her favorite artist/songs in it, but generally we don’t go anywhere of distance for us to play either her cd’s or mine. Her very favorite music is Motown, Oldies and Country (Country being Brooks & Dunn, Alan Jackson, Diamond Rio and others from those years) but also enjoys my Classic Rock and Disco. I also like her country artists/songs.

    Funny, but we could play the Country stuff in Colorado and it was highly accepted. Here, not nearly as much.

    Yes, I would sit in the back seat and enjoy all that music right along with Mrs.Cody and you Holly! :D

    My Honey and I always loved it when we would travel from JAX to Lafayette to visit my family...we could listen to all our favorite music during that at least 12 hour drive too. :)

    @Babs Hunt I would love for you to come, and you wouldn’t need to call a cab. My little KIA Sportage is still in good shape. In 2&2/1 years I’ve put less than 17,000 miles on it, (that includes my trip to Yvonne’s), but not to worry, in 53 years I’ve never had a ticket. :)

    The wife likes Boston, Journey, Heart, that type of stuff.

    I like Jazz, and more Jazz with Classical thrown in.

    I'll listen quietly to her music, but if I put on Jazz she makes
    'faces' till I give up and switch to something else.

    One group we discover that we both really, really enjoy is Jethro Tull.

    Who would have thought...:eek:

    If one can remember being at the airport and hearing the sounds of the jet engines running at idle, that's precisely what I hear 24 and 7.
    There's no getting used to it but I do put up with it because it is a part of my life and some things that are bad just can't be fixed without losing something valuable in the process.

    The only thing that helps mask the constant noise is more constant noise as described by my wife's post. The sporadic Boom-Boom of the bass playing idiots going by in their cars or the gun shots or even the fire engines are actually very unnerving even if during those incidents I can no longer hear the jet engines roaring.

    I would much rather hear the sounds God provides than the ones that seem to please some of the nondescript entities of humanity that we have to put up with.
    Sometimes going deaf would seem the better choice but then again, the one bit of noise I like is hearing my wife's voice.

    @Bobby Cole When I was growing up in our family home over here the Airport was just down the road from us and one of the flight paths for planes coming and going was right over our home. We heard all the noise of planes getting ready to take off and land...and saw them flying so low over our home that sometimes I felt myself ducking so those planes wouldn't hit me. ;)

    Our neighborhood fought to change the flight path and before I moved out of our family home for good this was done and we no longer had planes flying directly over us. But the noise from the airport continues to this day and I'm glad I no longer have to listen to it.

    This is one of the residential roads next to Heathrow Airport London... thank Goodness a 2 hour drive from me... but these poor residents have to put up with 1280 flight per day going over their homes.


    Craziness... I'd go stark raving mad....

    At times, we hear Navy Fighter Jets over our complex, flying out of NAS Jax. The week prior to the Air Show at the NAS, it can get somewhat noisy above our complex with the Navy flying around on practice runs.

    I was use to a lot of noise when in the Navy, working in a warehouse on a forklift and working around CNC Machines in a machine shop. Even with wearing foam ear plugs, some noise was still there.

    And, when we go to the gun and rifle range, got to have ear muffs on. Our 9mm S&W is loud!

    @Bobby Cole Ah, another person with the 'Jet' sound in the ear!
    I Ruptured both eardrums on a dive in 1972.
    Thought I equalized, but guess it didn't take.

    My biggest problem is that I sometimes think someone is talking to me,
    but it's just that noise.

    Not a ringing, it's a rumble, like you said.

    Hang in there.

    Sometimes when the wife fires up the blender for Margarita's,
    I think its a new Justin Bieber song...:eek:
