Early Japanese Cars
An early Mazda, most likely in the 40-50s
I am sitting here at my computer and realized 22 years ago I would have been in the love seat, watching TV with Sherry, And doing a little smooching. Since being here the TV has been on, but less than an hour total. (Our lives change,To borrow from Rick)
Living here before (-20+ yrs), when we came home after being out, the ritual was ‘Check the answering machine’ then turn on the TV.
A lot has happened in those 22 years. We left here with a satellite dish. I set it up most stops if there was no local TV stations. If it was more than overnight, it was always set up. I seemed to always have trouble aiming that sucker.
We watched less and less TV as my hearing deteriorated. We drove to Alaska and never set up the dish once. When we got back to the lower 48 we decided if we did not use it in the Yukon and Alaska, we didn’t need it at all.
We visit family and friends. Most watch TV and I am not about to ask them to turn it off because ‘I’ can’t hear, it is their house and I once did the same thing. Before hearing loss, the TV came on after work and went off at bedtime.
Now I notice we sit together at separate PCs and we go thru our regular routines. Mine takes much longer. She leaves me here and goes to the Love seat to read her Bible or novel. She may spend some time on the smart phone.
Then she does what inside stuff she wants to and I go out to play. Lately it has been to complete the repairs on the sewer pump and housing for the motor home. I am nearly done. Here is the pump area from our deck.
Yep life does take drastic changes in a ‘short’ 22 year span.
PS: Did I read that sign right?
