Weekend Success

This was the first weekend in many months that I actually didn’t work and my mission was to clean the garage and make it possible to fit our two cars inside. February 5th and the temperature hit 80 this afternoon. My kind of winter.

After six years of driving my faithful F-150, I have sold the truck and purchased a “grown-up” sedan.

Big Red shared in my victory

It will be the first “non-truck” vehicle I have driven as mine in almost thirty years and the first one without lights and siren for my working EMS and fire dept for almost as many years. The F-150 could not fit in our garage, so we were used to storing things on one side of the garage.

I listened to hours and hours of music while preparing the garage and was “shuffled” to a band I hadn’t listened to in quite awhile. I bet I know a couple of “children of the 70’s” that have a few Humble Pie albums laying around, so I thought I would put one up for all of us that recall fondly the days of “real” rock concerts.

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

    Kudos, Ray-I dare not organize my garage as I have a nice compliment of woodworking tools and machinery well (read intentionally) buried within the mix, and should I gain easy access to any I fear my “honey do” list might experience exponential (read downright frightening) growth. Besides, my Tundra won’t fit and my younger son is always awol with my wifes suv. Ahhh, safe for now, anyway.

    Congratulations, Ray. I just filled up the second half of my garage last night. Now I need a long playlist to clean it up.

    I stumbled on your blog today and wanted to thank you for the Humble Pie. And, yes, lol, this child of the 70’s has a few Humble Pie albums lying around, including Rockin’ the Filmore. Now that was rock and roll! On of the best records ever made, IMHO. Every once a while I dig out my vinyl and play it. I throw that one on the turntable and blast it out of my big ass vintage 1973 Advent speakers and I feel 16 again, for a while at least. It’s a lot of fun. Hard to pick a favorite and that one but I love their Hallelujah I Just Love Her So.
