Yup I went to the auto show but I didn't make it to the museum but I still plan to. An exhibit featuring artifacts from Pompeii including the casts of people who died after being covered in volcanic ash and lava, though gruesome in some regards, is still an amazing sight. I want to apologise to a couple of my friends. I read your blogs but I couldn't leave a comment. Whether it was my computer or the Internet last night (Wed.) I couldn't say. For example I had no problem with Beth's or Carole's but I couldn't leave a comment on Nancy's or others. Anyway the auto show was fun as it always is. I have loved cars since I was young. Every year my father would take me to all the dealerships in the fall when all the new models would be debuted and ever since then I have an emotional connection to cars and their styling and performance. I only owned one performace car (read fast) in my life. It was a blast to drive. When it worked. It was the biggest pain in the hind quarters, no what I mean to say it was a big pain in the ass! It drained my bank account at the time. It was all my fault because I did a lot of reading up on it and they pretty much said the same thing. When it worked it was great but it was prone to all kinds of problems. I bought it anyway. It gave me one good year of service out of the 5 total years that I owned it. It was a 1991 Ford Taurus SHO (Super High Output). I did buy another Taurus afterwards but it was more of the garden variety. I just got rid of it this passed August. I have nothing bad to say about it. It gave me 11 years of good dependable service and was still going strong when I traded it in. It was a comfortable, reliable car. In 11 years all I replaced were tires and a small bit in the rear suspension. That was it. No oil leaks. No oil burning. I only hope my present car car work as well.
I did make a movie of the auto show but I opted for a slideshow of the pictures I took. I tried to find car based music to play underneath it but only came up with one and it was too short so I ended up setting it to a bluesy tune that was almost the exact length of all the pictures. That is next.
I can't seem to stay awake much past 9:30 or 10:00 these days. I get quite a workout breaking down pallets and they should provide a bus line to get from one part of the store to another as it is needlessly huge for the business it does. It's a very nice store and it's only 6 or 7 years old but it didn't have to be this big. Oh and the parking lot is terrible. We are next to a McDonalds and this attracts large groups of birds. Particularly pigeons and sea gulls. They are constantly flying about leaving little gifts from their feathered colons. And what makes it worse are the people who come to feed them. Of course there's not much that can be done about it.
Well I actually had a lot more to write about but I can't remeber what it was. I have a couple of hours of consciousness left. I will attempt to visit around, do my dinner dishes and hit the sack. Boy am I tired these days.
Goodnight/good morning/ good afternoon my friends,
I'm outta here.
