Goodbye old friend…


Well it only took me 78 years but I finally made the first new car purchase of my life!   Nothing too fancy, but a wonderful, new, affordable, great on gas leap into the new millennia.   It was time.   My previous vehicle was more than 20 years old and she most certainly served me well.   However, she was pretty tired ...

Hello Fall


I saw the first signs of the turning leaves over the weekend. Technically, fall does not officially begin until later this week, but that “fall feeling” is already in the air.

As I was headed ... Read More »

So Co, I love you.


Sending out some big hugs to my beloved So Co today! Nothing makes my day more than stopping in to a business and hear the Arch playing!   Except for pulling up next to someone in 270 traffic and they are listening.   Or when someone tells me you are listening.   Okay, basically anytime I know you are hanging out with us.   ...

Memories, Def Leppard, and High School


Def Leppard could have no idea how much they played into my youth.   I am sure I’m not the only one, considering the size of the crowd at Saturday’s show. Such a GREAT crowd at the sold out show:  REO, and Tesla opened up at Hollywood Casino Amphitheater.  From the looks, sound, and state of mind of the crowd, a ... Read More »
