We all have our own color choices. Patti F has chosen a unique Pink for her Viper below. Not my choice but I don’t have 6 digits to drop on the car and then thousands more to have it repainted. I don’t believe that is one of Dodge’s factory colors but I have been wrong before.

Color is interesting. People read a lot about color choices. I had an encounter earlier this year over color. I was pulling out of Marriots Ridge High School parking lot after voting in the primaries. A van pulled up next to me on the way out and the guy leaned out the window and said “Nice Blue Car.” Well, I have a red Miata and I was wearing a red Coca-Cola hat.

I guess they immediately assumed I was voting red because of the colors. Well, they were wrong like many people who make assumptions. I didn’t even respond because arguing with idiots is a lost cause and I want to enjoy life.

But one color argument I won’t ignore is when it comes to a person’s skin. We have far too many racists in this world.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I didn’t accomplish all my goals this summer but there was really only one wish I really had. And that was for my son and daughter-in-law to have a healthy child and they did so it was one of the best summers of all time.
  • Did you ever have leg cramps so bad it still was hurting the next day?
  • Leaves falling from trees are a peaceful sight till you remember you have to pick them up.

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.
