In the air tonight

Started off with that little ditty this morning. An old classic from Phil Collins. I don’t know what’s in the air tonight, but today I did a little blowing the dust off the speakers and put the top down for a ride. Those speakers probably have some dust on them also. I had the garage rotate the tires. I made sure they are turning correctly. As my horsepower friends would say “can I get a Hell Yeah.”

I didn’t go with the horsepower. I almost did. The Dodge Challenger has always appealed to me and those beast look like a lot of straight-line fun. Maybe someday, but I have no regrets really. I’d just get in trouble with my twitchy right foot. And this little go-cart is a lot of fun. So much fun I might buy another one after I’ve driven the wheels off this one.

It’s also the season I’ve been known to point this convertible to the beach for a day trip.

I spent more time in the mower seat and behind the push one than in the car this weekend. But that ride this morning brought a smile to my face. Just like listening to a little music did this morning.

So maybe this week I’ll have time to do some shooting. I really have to make that a priority. This weekends priority was loving and caring for my son’s dog in between chores. She is a beautiful and loving family member.

I miss having a pet but the freedom is also nice. I know pets have been a popular addition to lots of families in the last few months. I hope that love never wears off and that this is a start to a trend of having fewer shelters and even fewer animals put down.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I can see the light of retirement. Well it is a little way off but I know its there.
  • Did I ever say, I LOVE SUMMER? If not, I LOVE SUMMER.
  • Sometimes I think about the words I type and other times I just let the fingers wander.
  • A mask is now as important as car keys. And I have trouble finding both sometimes. So now I keep extra mask in the car.

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.
