Going out with a few friends for dinner tonight. Well actually more than a few. A group of people that graduated with me are getting together. I am really bored and looking for company. We may even go dancing after the dinner. I am not that great a dancer anymore but it is good to get out. Do you get out with friends once in awhile? I hope you do.

New Car

I finally found a good used car. Actually my friend Clinton found it. It is a 2000 Yellow VW Bug. It only has 23000 miles on it and a little scratch on the side. I paid less than $4500 and I am as thrilled as a Jack Rabbit in a Playboy club. I will donate my Chevy Blazer to the Veteran Donate a Car people. It has over 200000 miles on it. The strange part was that the VW was being sold by an 87 year old lady that liked to hit curbs. Any car deals in your future?

Hell Ride

I am looking for a new used car. Nothing special just something to get me to my Dr. appointments and go for an occasional ice cream and BBQ. I found this car on ebay a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am. So I called up the owner and he came over my house to give me a test ride. He took off and was going near and over 100 mph. He went on the local highway and we were going so fast we passed ourselves when we were coming back just like the movie Back to the Future. I feel like I just drank 12 cups of coffee. I did not buy the car, but I do know the brakes work fantastically. Have you been on a test ride in a car you are about to purchase lately?

My two sisters like to gamble. One gambles in Atlantic City because she lives in New Jersey and my other sister gambles in Pennsylvania in the new Casinos that have popped up around were we live. Me I am a lottery person. They, my sisters, seem to do pretty good but I am not a big winner. I win enough to keep me playing. Well that is about it. I wrote an email to my daughter and then wrote this because I am pretty bored. I am reading a Kurt Vonnegut book and that helps pass the time also. Do you gamble? I hope you win more than I.

Ground hog.

I ground a groundhog today with my car. I would have missed the furry creature but he did a u-turn and ran under my tire. I felt bad but he must have been a suicidal groundhog to u-turn like that and run under my tire. Critters do that on the roads now and then. The last time that happened to me I was on my motorcycle and a deer did a u-turn on me. I bent my fender a bit and had some deer hair in my headlight. The deer was ok. He ran off into the woods and seemed unhurt. I hit him in the flank part of his body so he might have been a bit sore later on. Animals tend to scare me when stuff like this happens. Have you ever been part of a road kill?

Frozen Watermelon.

Summertime and the weather can be hot, humid and not pretty. I have found a nice treat to cool myself off and quench my thirst. It is called frozen stuff. I like frozen grapes and frozen watermelon. The grapes I leave in the freezer but the watermelon I only put it in the freezer for an hour. That way the watermelon is just frozen enough. So when I put it in my mouth it truly melts into a nice icy treat. What summertime treats do you have?

Aarrgghh twas a good rafting trip.

We had a good day and a good trip on our rafting ship. We were pirates, drifting down the Amazon. We saw eagles, elephants, hippos, and other strange and wondrous wildlife. It was about a 4 hour trip and I enjoyed every second of it. Now I am going to sit back eat some ice cream and dream of the wonderful day experienced by me and my 3 crew members. I hope you can enjoy a day like today and if you already have you know what I am drifting on about.

River Rides

I am going to try something called, "Rafting." I am going on a river in a rubber raft. It is not suppose to be a river with a lot of rapids. It is suppose to be a nice calm river. I am going with other people so I will not be alone in the raft. I have been wanting to do this for awhile and I will have the opportunity tomorrow, or not. It depends if everyone shows up. If not, I will be going for a nice lunch in a restaurant by the river. That I know I can handle. The last time I tried a river trip was in a canoe. I fell out of the canoe and people thought I drowned and they had cops and rangers and helicopters looking for me. I am hoping to avoid that this time. Needless to say I am a little anxious about this trip. So if you don't see me write anymore here then the trip did not go well. I think everything will be OK. Have you ever gone on a river trip?

I like coffee. The problem is I drink too much and I get jittery. Today it was about 98 degrees outside and I have been drinking iced coffee all day. Iced coffee I have found gets me as jittery as warm coffee. Yep! I am definitely Jitterizing pretty good. My mind has reached the over 100 thoughts per second speed and I am jumping around like a cricket on a hot plate. Good coffee. There is another side effect that is not so great. Lots of coffee equals a lot of trips to the rest areas in and outside the home. Another bad side effect is that time seems to be standing still but I am anything but still, physically or mentally. I may be repeating my self and that is another effect of my iced coffee consumption. How about you do you have a coffee intolerance or can you drink it and still be stable?

I had a problem with my toilet or loo. It kept on flushing and running water. It has been doing this for a month but today it got worse. So I called my handy dandy maintenance team and they came over and fixed it right up. If I had known they would have been that fast I would have called sooner. Maintenance people are cool. Especially for me because I am a bad plumber. I was just amazed on how fast they responded and fixed everything up. So hats off to plumbers day is today.
