I have a project in a 2008 Chevy that I’m trying to bring back to life and make her look good again. And boy is this baby in need of some TLC. Mechanically she is back on the road and tagged. Yes legally. And if my test ride today was an indication I might have these wheels for a few years.

I kind of enjoy bringing things back to life. If you take care of it the resale value is the best. But I enjoy a clean and good looking ride. So I hope to take good care of this for a good while before its time to part ways to its next owner.

Another thing I’m detailing is homestead. Trying to get some wear and tear on the siding, brick and concrete cleaned and repaired. So tomorrow is a caulking and gap-filling day and if it’s dry enough I might pull that old John Deere out of the shed and take care of the yard so the weekend is free.

A lot of people look at these types of activities as work. I look at it like this. I enjoy every minute of it because one day I might not be able to do these things. So every lap of the mower or power washing something or digging a fence post, I’m thankful that I’m still upright and healthy enough to do them. I still remember the days inside recovering from surgeries dying to get outside and do yardwork.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • The two things wrong with people who think they know everything is that they think they know everything and despite facts, they don’t know everything they will continue to believe they know everything.
  • My neighbor’s son is making his first start for the Baltimore Orioles tonight. Good luck Bruce.
  • I never thought I’d say this but there are too many sports on at the same time.
  • My annual cough is back.
  • Let’s all have a good weekend. I would hope that would be one thing we could agree on.

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.
