Well... "Feelin' Good" may be a mite of an exaggeration... but... I do, just the same... and it kind of makes me nervous... waiting for the "ambush" :o) ... The last couple years, it seems every "good" thing was balanced on something, that wasn't so good... two steps forward... three steps back...
hmmm... that Murphy fella better look sharp this time... Got me a brand spankin' new Axe handle... all polished up an' waitin' on that Irish Potlicker!
We've got a lil' bit of a focus that we'd been missing for a bit... Having discovered that sittting in limbo for too long (three years) gets to be a habit that this fool needed to break out of!
At some point a fella has to Set His Priorities... and let the chips fall where they may.
Now, with a loose schedule... and the calendar tick, tick, tickin' away... there's things to do... and only, not much more than a month to get 'em done!
Even get some fun things to do too, not just preparation chores. Went to Costco the other day, while we were at Heidi's agility trial... and acquired a new lil' camera... and Why does the ol' fool need a new camera you ask? Didn't he just get one a year or two ago?
Well... yes sir... and Ma'ams... I did!... but!... :o) ... as it turns out... as small as that Great P80 Nikon camera is... it's still a bit of a hassle when I'm on the bike... it don't fit a pocket and just seemed awkward... so... I got another Nikon! This time the lil' guy is called a Nikon Coolpix S8000.
How come the smaller they get... The Bigger the Name? anyway, this lil' thing can zoom 10X... takes great pics... and drops right in a pocket... couldn't be more convenient... unless they set the thing in my head lookin' out my eyes... It's gonna get a workout on the Alaska Ride! :o)
Yes sir! Things are gonna start hoppin' round here.
Plan is to have ever'thing ready by the 8th of July or so... 'cause that's when we're planning on pullin' west on a circle that will take us to Mark and Bobbies "Wild Flower" celebration... then we'll circle back to a setup along the front range where Heidi will wait... most likely spending a LOT of time with Jillian...
While the Old Buster... Climbs on his Raider and gets his long dreamed of ALCAN Ride taken care of... I sure hope the Boss blesses all my Angels, for carryin' me this far. (Did you see the post from two posts ago?)
Then... we're hoping to spend the balance, of the end of the summer, a bit north...
The economic realities being what they are, we're working at lining up a lil' work to finish out the summer/early fall in some of the North Country we both love.
Now... if you've read my "stuff" for a while, you know I don't really wanna trade one job for another... but... you do what you have to do... and knowing that a "job" is a short term "Gap Filler"... and, it's located in some of the best country a man can breathe in... should make it tolerable for all but the grumpiest Ol' dodgers...
and generally... the folks you get to deal with "up there"... are in a lot better mood, or should be! :o)
Then... come the "end of season" up north (assuming we find a "situation") we are gonna roll south... somewhere... and again... find some piddly, "fill in" chores we can do, to keep the propane tanks full.
Finally!... We're gettin' back to how I used to wander, all those years ago... 'fore I got married... North in the Summer, followin' the Geese... South in the Fall... with those Long necked trail guides pointin' the way, with their Honkin' Formations, flyin' high overhead. :o)
... and in amongst all that... are some twists and turns I'm gonna keep covered up for a bit... and, I expect... some that I don't even know about yet... 'course... there's one hell of a lot... I...don't know about yet! :o)
But then... the Latest Train Wreck keeps things interesting... Right? :o)
Take Good Care
