Here they come with the new machine...

Various - Heat OST
Various - Jackie the Album
Various - Kranky Compilation
Torrero Band - Lennon & McCartney Tijuana Style
Various - iPod Shuffleplay

Another Saturday spent mostly organising and watching TV...

Up early and, again, adding artwork to iTunes, concentrating today on Various Artist and Various Composer compilations...

I was also, of course, tracking the progress of the new iPod...

I received an e-mail advising it would arrive between 9:59 and 19:59...

At 9:59, the van pulled up to the back gate...


...and so, despite all the horror stories on the net and despite past delivery (or rather non-delivery) experiences, I shouldn't have worried...





I left the new machine filling up on Autofill - just over 30,000 tracks...


...while I made my one journey forth from the house - to the store for croissants re breakfast and rolls re lunch, spotting some wildlife as I walked through the drizzle...




On the way back, Mr Crow was in almost the same place...


I walked through the new estate...


Noting a lost hat...


...a broken tree...


..and a lost glove...


Home...


For an after noon of more organising as the autofill continued and enjoyable episode of "Inspector George Gently"...

In footie, Hearts managed an away 0-0 draw at Inverness while Queens went down 1-0 to Dundee in Dumfries...

The only goal of the game was a penalty, the causal incident resulting in Queens' keeper being sent off...

Still fourth though...

The weather picked up a bit in the evening...



..not that we were going anywhere...




We enjoyed a small Chinese takeaway and episodes 3 and 4 of "Salamander"...

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : New iPod delivered as requested...
