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!
