Road noise

Continuing my series of posts related to my upcoming Great North American Baseball Road Trip… 15,148 miles. That’s not all of it, of course.  There’s also any wandering, side stops, up and back to the hotels and motels, but, bottom line, it’s a lot of driving. Based purely on the point A to point B… Read more »

Manual transition

I began learning how to drive this past weekend. It sure feels that way, at least. After 10 years, I retired the trusty Avalon and now attempt to navigate around town in my new Legacy.  In order to have some hope of making sense of everything, I’ve been reading the monstrous tomes known as the owner’s manuals….

Getting an earful

Had a lunch and miscellaneous day with Dad yesterday.  A “miscellaneous day” is characterized by riding around town doing multiple errands. Dad took the wheel this time, as he wanted to get his car washed.  After a nice lunch (Five Guys!) and the requisite wash, we got down to his main shopping desire:  finding a… Read more »

Still,… Read more »

Powerless

It’s been hell.  Feeling unmotivated, dispassionate, hesitant and disconnected.  Cut off from the things I know and enjoy. Yeah, two weeks without the desktop. Sure, all you phone and tablet people can’t see the big deal.  Even you laptop people probably scratch your heads.  But it’s all about where your comfort zone is. I spent… Read more »

What kind of week has it been

As with most people who have streaming services for their TV (Netflix, Amazon, etc.), I enjoy watching various television series I never watched back when they were on air. Of those, I particularly like the witty banter and controversial takes from two Aaron Sorkin created shows, The West Wing and the under-appreciated Studio 60 on… Read more »
