Thursday ride

Leave a comment

Time for some cruising. The beast will be washed. The top will be put down. The camera gear loaded. The goal is cruising to parts of Howard County I haven’t visited in a while to see. So much changes here so fast. I can’t find some of the roads that used to be a staple of my drive or ride on buses as a youth. So its time to explore again and see what I can find.

Ready for today.

It will be fun to get some fresh images and have the camera in hand again. I think I’ll drop by my old neighborhood and see if the Kindler road to the old wooden burnout bridges are still there. I doubt it but it might stir a few memories of the piles of rubber left on those planks. As of late I’ve grown tired of the congestion in this county. It’s a far cry from when we moved here in 61.

Wish I had more time to share today but I’ll try to make up for it with some constructive thoughts or criticisms tomorrow.

Random Thoughts

Just learned of a long time work friend passing. We were the same age and both had decades together at the job. He was an outspoken ally and one who I enjoyed his opinions and thoughts. We would talk retirement and the enjoyment we looked forward to. It has really made me think about what time I have left and how to make the most of it. But most of all tonight its given me a pause. It’s hard to accomplish much after hearing that.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
