No assistance needed

Well, glad this white stuff will be melted soon and I can get back to having the rubber meet the road. As I walked to clean my better half’s SUV this morning I peered over at my ride. And instantly, my right foot coped an attitude and was highly insulted when this is what he saw. I asked what was wrong. He indicted he had no issues making those wheels spin and didn’t need any assistance from the white stuff.

These wheels turn without the aid of snow. So no sense taking it out today.

I tried to settle him down but there was no calming it. He wanted an answer to what all that white crap was doing on his wheels. I tried to say 60+ degree temps on Sunday in a voice of temptation. That did get his attention but still didn’t take the scowl off his big toe. I promised him summer was coming, the frown started to flatten out. I then said I’d fill up the tank, wash the car and armor all the tires. So I see a corner tilt upward and then I laid out the clincher. I said remember that my best friends Corvette with the new supercharger wants to go to the track this summer and wants us to come along to play. That did the trick. A happy right foot again. But it did mumble “get that snow off my rims now.


Take, Take me HOME. Nice line in a song I like. Kind of a nice tune to finish out the work day to. I hope to incorporate a ton of music for my Thursday. Music tends to put me at ease and in a positive creative mood. Then again there have been points in my life where I used it to build anger and rage. But those days are over hopefully. Music to inspire is what I try to achieve now. That doesn’t mean I don’t listen to loud aggressive tunes, it’s how I interpret and use them now for inspiration. I like all tunes, well mostly the ones I grew up with. But I find new tunes all the time I also like.


Random Thoughts of the Day

Just saw a show called Carnival Eats. That is sick. And I want two of everything they showed.

The scale showed a number today that made me happy. Now if it can keep going that direction we will get along fine.

My idea of winter dress is a long sleeve tee-shirt, shorts, socks and shoes. Any weather outside that comfort zone is not needed.

Sometimes banks frustrate me more than anything.

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.
