four walls and a bunch of boxes

Pretty much describe my life right now. The van shows up Wednesday, and then who knows? I'm going at this a little bit different than the search that brought me to Albany. Find the place you fit first, and then find something to do. A good thing, as I never seemed to get the hang of Albany, either personally or professionally. Maybe I should have listen voice calling me back to the river, and I don't mean the Hudson.

Well, I've been giving one chance and signed a lease at 1914 Poplar. It's refreshing to know that I'll be heading home, but terrifying that I know what I'll be doing to support myself. Nothing much to do except to trust the it will work, as I attempt to Take care of business for my family. Will I become a guide at Graceland or dealer at a Casino in Tunica? who knows? I know Albany is already behind me, as it was fated to be when I signed that lease for Mom at the parkview. Contract progamming appears to be the past, and I have no idea as to future, which is how it should be. I'll leave you with something more uplifting. Now, Grizz or Tigers, Blues or Preds?

New Chapter

Well... I have plenty of time to devote to this blog, since I am now unemployed. As far as what the future holds, probably not Albany, as I need to be close to Family, And the same could apply to Socal. So where? Well, where else? It's odd, as going there, I've always felt a draw I never felt in Saint Louis. As someone said after I told catfish and greens with hog jowl "Darling, you're home." Now, I have a chance to make it there. I may wind up a guide at Graceland or behind the wheel of a peterbilt, but c'est la vie! And I did get the bike out:
for a brief ride:
And I've been reading up on Macro's enemy:
Which leaves me with more respect for Pantani. Yes they both doped, But Marco had a certain something - riding for joy, rather then to crush everyone. Let's hope my next engagement lets my express my joie de vivre.

First ride

I finally got the new bike out a for quick spin. Why?

Not all jurisdictions plowe their path. Still, I had some one to watch over me:

You couldn't ride everywhere:

and the bike did get dirty:

and you have to throw the Lycra out in this weather:
