No, it’s not me with the music rattling the window. That is mother nature outside with the Boom Box in the shape of summer thunderstorms. It comes with the territory. But I was able to take advantage of an hour around noon for a pleasure cruise up and down Frederick and Old Frederick roads before the rains.
I was only 2 minutes from home when the sky opened up and obviously I was a few seconds late getting the top-up. The first time that has happened to me. Guess I was being a bit optimistic that I could make it home.
I hope we don’t return to the days of gas shortages or odd/even days. It already cost an arm and a leg, but at least it’s plentiful. And I can still feel free to take a joy ride and burn a few gallons of gas. Or take a few day trips to the beach, (about $50) round trip at the current cost of gas.
I don’t spend much on myself, so taking some time to enjoy driving my Miata on warm summer days and getting my feet in the sand is something I can live with as a frivolous expense. Yeah, that sounds and probably is selfish. So maybe I should do something for someone less fortunate tomorrow. I’ve been thinking it’s time for a few donations anyway.
Random Thoughts of the Day
- I’m looking forward to seeing some very old friends this weekend.
- The top of my desk is under there somewhere.
- I’ve been using a smartphone for a while now. I don’t think it’s working.
- A sad day for the Ravens organization losing one active player and another former star on the same day.
