Catching up and Random Memory

It's been nearly 4 weeks since my last post and I've no excuse.  I intend to write, but then get busy with other things.  If ya haven't already, read my wife's blog to catch up on some of our goings on.
The Cotton District Arts Festival is over for this year and (for me) mowing time is up.  I actually tried to mow this past week but the ground is still so soggy that I couldn't do everything without getting stuck - so I've given up for a bit.  I really need a solid week without rain to be able to get it done, but its not looking good for a bit.
Today is DKW's and mine 3 and a 1/2 year anniversary. (October 31 will be 4 years).  I know its a cliché - but it doesn't seem like its been that long.
Random thought - I was listening to my internet radio this morning and "Cracklin' Rosie" by Neil Diamond came on the radio and for a few moments I was in 1971 - driving my black (with red interior) 1966 Chevrolet Impala.  I was 16 and delivering a pizza (for Pizza King) to Critz Hall, which at that time was a girl's dorm, and that song was playing in my 8-track.  I stopped in front, got out with the pizzas and almost dropped them as I go flashed by six windows in sync. (boom-boom-boom......).  Talk about a teen-age boy's dream!  I'll admit it!  It was the first time in my life to see live BOOBIES!! And to get that many at once I nearly had a cardiac.  I did have to set the pizzas down on the hood of my car and compose myself before making the delivery.  After delivering the pizzas (and getting a nice cash tip too) I was about to start my car  when the young lady I delivered the pizzas to came out and  told me that it was a set-up and they had a bet to see if I would drop the pizzas.  She went on to say that even if I had, they would have paid for them.  Plus they had a big laugh seeing the look on my face.  I was grinning ear-to-ear and admitted that it made my day.  (And many nights to come, but I don't want to get into that.) :-o
It was a moment less than 30 seconds long in my life - but DANNNGGGGG!
Everyone have a great day!
