What do you think of 2044? That is only 30 years from now. I have grand children who are saying that is a ‘million’ years away (mentally). Now I want to fall back for just a second. Picture 1984.
(This 1984 Ford was a brand new car then)
Now honestly did you for one minute sit down and think, “I wonder what I will be doing in 2014?”
Of course not, but here we are. Still alive, although I never thought I would be. But now that I am here, what do I think? I still think life is good, I always have. I like calm ‘excitement’(I know that is a contradiction in terms). I mean getting excited of small stuff as compared to a ‘roller coaster’. (I have ridden one maybe two). My heart races at the sight of my grand kids, even the one 31 years old.
I get excited thinking of seeing a place I have never seen. Shucks I get excited at seeing some of the places we have already seen, like New Orleans and San Antonio. Oh, and my face smiles thinking about the north east and a lobster pound.
Calm ‘excitement’ to me is seeing a 1939 Ford on a trailer that some guy is proud of.
I get more excited seeing an antique on the road:
I believe this was a 1941 Chevy Coupe with a very young couple driving.
I know you think my entire life is in Antique cars but it isn’t. I am not that knowledgeable, but I remember the ones of my youth.
I love the old song, “I wish I was 18 Again” (Going where I’ve never been!). Sadly, the only ones I have ever heard sing that song have passed. One line said, “I will never again turn the young girls heads or run fast like the wind”. Old folk know that, but we do what we can.
My pallet is excited, I bought some cherry tomatoes. Now I have sitting beside me cherry tomatoes, celery and carrots. I love raw veggies to munch on, I don’t do it enough. Oh, I forgot to mention the Triscuits, I have ‘Fire roasted tomato and olive oil’ flavor.
Until I was grown, I had never heard the term ‘Cherry, Plum or salad’ tomato. Growing up mama called them ‘Tommy Toes’, so that is what they were, my mama was never wrong!
I make resolutions. I have used the same one for the past 4 years. Imma going to lose “FOR GOOD”, that 10 pounds I lost and found again this past year.
I am going to quit playing around and really enjoy life, that roll is getting faster every year.
I intend to laugh a LOT!
And do silly stuff:
Another Bathtub Top a Buick ‘46
I could not find a jpg or the Nash.
