The last month or so I have had a passenger with me when I drive to work. Now that the wife is back we ride together when we can to save gas.

I like it. We talk on the way there and on the way back. We have seen more of each other lately than we have in a while.

And that's a pretty good thing, in case you were wondering.

But today we were on different times. I had to be in at 2:30 and she didn't need to be there until 3:30 so we took separate vehicles.

As I am wont to do when driving alone I had my music cranked up fairly loud. Not loud enough to be annoying, but loud enough for a late 40's something rocker to jam out.

Right before I got to the light Santana and Rob Thomas came on doing "Smooth" and I cranked it up a little bit louder just because I dig that song.

Sitting there jamming. Head bobbing and singing along. Drumming on the steering wheel.

Then I notice that the turn light is green but the car in the turn lane next to me isn't moving.

Glance over that way and there's a young 20-ish couple in the car watching me and smiling. As I look over they both give me a wave and a smile and then they drive on.

And it suddenly got alot warmer in the truck.

Might have just been me. I'm not sure.

Tuesday is going to be End Of The Middle Ages Day. Man! I'm glad I didn't miss that. It will also be UN Peacekeepers Day, Learn About Composting Day and National Coq Au Vin Day.

No more middle ages! Yay!


  1. "middle ages"? mm, you might have gathered by now that self is .... EEEK! somewhere past that (mental mind refuses to get past the joyous years of 20 - 30 [calendar years]. Oh well, whatever.

    Do though, sometimes, try to allow my imagination, and wonder what it might have been like to be in your situation - circa calendar years - 1300 - 1500CE. Cheers.

    1. Davoh- You silly rabbit. Middle Ages.

      I think I was actually out of town for those years. (grin)

    1. Davoh 2- I looked that stuff up. I don't think they make it in this country.

  3. Don't you just hate getting caught like that?

    1. Donna- It was pretty much embarrassing. Yes, indeed.

  4. Were you wearing the big Sheriff Bubba hat too?

    1. Critter- Luckily, I can't wear the hat in the truck. It's too tall.

  5. I love that song too. I'd have been groovin' right there with you!
    When I was a kid, I used to think it was "Coco Van" and couldn't figure out what the heck kind of dish everyone was talking about!

    1. Lolamouse- I had to go read the pronunciation before I could figure out what the heck it was.

      Those silly French. Why can't they just speak English like everyone else?

  6. Oi! Only the English Speak English. Other nations use the English language as a basis for their own diologue.
    English is now the language mostly used to communicate at sea and for air travel.
    Latin was the international language yonks back, but a person now doesn't need to know latin or should have at least forgotten it.
