I set up the GoPro for a quick NIGHTLAPSE last night. I didn’t use an external battery as it was supposed to rain but the stars and clouds playing together is pretty neat for me.

Gif because video is BIG.

I probably need to figure somewhere that I can store these online to make it easier to post here. Big files take up big space. I can probably figure out a link from my cloud.

That’s it. That’s the post.


Dream Car

If you were to ask me what my dream car is I would tell you several years back that it was a β€˜68 Ford Mustang.

I just love them.

To me, maybe not to you, they are beautiful cars. I love the way they sit, I love the way they move. How they almost look at you as you walk by, maybe giving you a little wink, tempting you to take a spin.

There was a time that I would have given most anything to own one.

But, times change, people change.

I’ve come to realize that my dream car changed into a dream truck. Maybe not a dream, perhaps more like a happy life.

He’s a green 1999 Ford Ranger. I came into possession of him for a few grand. Low miles, decent truck. It has its problems and I’m working through them.

Not my photo.

The pic above is nearly identical to my truck. When I’m done with this project it will be black and chrome. I love the contrast between the shiny and the dark.

The feeling of shifting and driving and enjoying something so simple, that’s a better dream for me.

And I will have it.

I don’t know where this came from tonight but…

That’s it. That’s the post.


For My Friend

Tomorrow a friend of mine buries his father. It’s understandably hard for him.

You’re raised by your parents and God forbid they ever have to bury their child but the inevitable end of that is that you will have to bury them.

It’s painful to think of.

I don’t know how I will respond to this when the time comes.

Just getting this out of my head.

Praying for my friend.

That’s it. That’s the post.


There Goes Monday

Monday came and I didn’t have the usual sense of dread. Today I was determined.

Everybody hates Mondays but I hate Tuesdays. They’re super busy for me and we rarely have time to get in what we need to do because of extra activities dropped on us.

Today me and my SM finished a major project and a fairly large project for this week. It’s one of the bigger stores so it’s a bit of weight off our shoulders.

I came home tired but with a sense of accomplishment today. That’s rare in my job, I’m sad to say.

But we take a win where we can, don’t we?

That’s it. That’s the post.


Easter and Podcast Sunday

It has been a minute since we’ve had the time to sit down and record but we’re back on the…air?

I sat down with Sam and we talked about the Road To Nowhere and some of our adventures in the mountains of NC today.

It’s short as far as podcasts though and we’re still getting out legs under us in this. Just a father and son having a good time.

Today was Easter and we did our church service as a tailgate affair.

And then off to Mamaw and Papaws for lunch and the Easter egg hunting. The oldest is feeling a little too old for this but still goes for the candy. Sugar will make you forget yourself, I guess.

The boy is eleven so an Easter Egg hunt is cool by him. Besides, he’s Mamaw’s boy.

All in all a good day.

Finally getting around to Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

We started it last night and let me tell you, four hours is a long time.

But I understand. This is actually telling a story and it’s pretty great. This will move to the top of my list quickly. (I’m not done yet.)

The only offerings I’ve truly enjoyed from DC live action are (in order of appreciation):

1. Batman Begins

2. Shazam (Truly enjoyed.)

3. The Dark Knight Rises (for finishing the story)

4. Christopher Reeve Superman movies.

5. The Dark Knight

The DCAU still kicks Marvel’s butt in superior animated quality. Period.

That’s it. That’s the post.


Where It Is Now…

We received our new furniture today and as everything is shifting around the great room (my fault, needed a change) we decided to do our spring cleaning as well.

The wife pulled these off of one of our overladen bookshelves (seriously, they’re stuffed).

That’s me. Basic Training β€˜86.

I do not remember being that young. But as I think back on it my views on this country have not changed a bit. I have less faith in the government, yes. But the basic feelings for my country and it’s people haven’t changed.

And I would do it all over again. Every. Bit. Of. It.

But that’s a long time ago. That’s where it was, this is where it is now.

Don’t worry, the hair is still there, and it’s fantastic.

I’m a lot older, a bit wiser, lots more stable, thank God! I’m blessed beyond all measure with a good family and home.

That kid never saw this coming.

That’s it. That’s the post.


Just Two Old Fellas

We’re just two old fellas winding down from the day, enjoying a little TV. Catching up on NCIS.

I’m off tomorrow so we can hang out while I clean house and take care of some projects.

Lots of things happening here and lots of money being invested in our home by us. You have to take care of what you can and improve on things when you can.

That’s it. That’s the post.
