This. This is the kind of lifestyle I choose to be living in shortly. Freedom 55!
I’m in the middle of a forced reboot – the blog has become stagnant. As of the date on this post, I have failed to update here in well over a year. Today, I begin to
This may trigger a “TMI moment” for some – hit the “more” button with caution…
Today, I said a sad goodbye to an old, old friend. my 26-year-old Chev Lumina APV Minivan took her last ride to the junkyard and I’m more than a little teary-eyed over it. Going… Going… Yeah, I regret this already.
If you have not yet grown up, and love to watch big machines dig holes in city streets, be jealous… I get this view for the whole summer, probably fall and likely into winter.
Leaving home in the dark through the back door is not as dangerous as it looks (if you count steps, anyway). And turn the torch app on…
Wow. Just… Wow. Very soon now… My baby will bring forth her own baby into the world. And… I. Am. In. Awe.

This video has solved every problem I have ever had. Ever. Random Song-for-the-Day: “Lunatic Fringe” – Red Rider
