Night Ride Home


Seating is important. First on, first off. If you’re lucky. If not, you’re not. I was so close to the front that I could hear the veteran driver teach a younger drive where to turn. She was a fine driver. She just had to learn the tricks and traps of the route. As I saidContinue reading “Night Ride Home”

The Road


S o. You liked yesterday’s picture of the rain and the mountain. Very cool. I like that picture a lot, too. You agree with a lot of people on Meta platforms. Between all of you there were well over 100 responses. That’s the kind of data that helps me a lot. No, you’re not justContinue reading “The Road”

Long Road Out Of There


R oad Trips. Road Trips are essential if you want to stay sane, at least for me and a lot of my friends. Kindred spirits you know. I have been to Virginia a couple of times for business. But, we avoided every possible person which wasn’t a lot of fun. I’ll show you why eventually.Continue reading “Long Road Out Of There”

The Journey


F all really came today. Cool winds. Cool temperature. No air conditioning. Windows wide open. No apparent humidity. People celebrating. I’m not sure about the last statement. People celebrating. That may be taking it a little too far. Let’s just say people are happy. I’m happy. That’s why I’m late. I went and stayed outside.Continue reading “The Journey”

Another Day, Another Mistake


W hen I was a young child my family used to travel from Long Beach, California to Brooklyn, New York. In those days we either took Santa Fe’s El Capitain or Super Chief. Those were the days. The food was great. The cars were luxurious. The staff was helpful and friendly. Though the ride wasContinue reading “Another Day, Another Mistake”

Like Being On The Road


Sometimes just leaving Orleans Parish is like going on a road trip, not that I drove very far, maybe 12 miles. But, it’s another world. I had to buy some electronics and a paint bucket. Best Buy is the best place for digital gear. I was grumbling while I drove. I had to buy aContinue reading “Like Being On The Road”

Traveling Across The River


Yesterday was some day. I almost didn’t get my second jab. My place could have been given to another, but apparently my healthcare system really cares. I was called about a half hour after my appointment was scheduled to make sure that I was still coming. I said yes and I did. Then, I voted.Continue reading “Traveling Across The River”

Where The Beauty Is


The original title was going to be “The Boys of Summer,” after reading about a number of great baseball players of my youth passing. But, Eddie Van Halen died. He was 65, a year younger than I am now. He died after a very long battle with cancer. He family was with him. He wasContinue reading “Where The Beauty Is”

More Road, Some Sky


Once again. A road and sky picture. It’s not really what it seems. It looks like I am out on some distant road. Not really. I was running errands. I drove out to Jefferson Parish. I was getting ready to drive home. I realized that I was driving up and over a railroad bridge, whichContinue reading “More Road, Some Sky”
