Disappearing From the Face

Many of you, (well, both of you actually,) have asked where I've been lately, and I've alluded to a mysterious project I've been working on that's consumed all my resources.

Make no mistake - I did start a project, and my wife would tell you that I live, eat, and breathe nothing outside the pursuit of this interest.

Though this endeavor helps fulfill a lifelong dream of mine, some may find it childish or trivial, and hardly a reason to drop out of life's finer pleasures. I offer neither argument nor excuse.

So have I stopped writing? Far from it. In fact, since November I've written over 400 small posts, (about four a day,) as well as having initiated over a dozen new threads to a forum devoted to those who share interest in this venture.

Will I ever resume writing my blogs and visiting those of my readers again? Probably.

Anyway, for those interested, here are photos of my new passion.


Let the criticism begin.

Well now. That explains it. If I had a new toy like that... I too would be like: "Blog? What blog?"

Perfectly understandable.

Thanks, freddie. There are so many people out there that are like, "It's just a CAR!" But let me tell you - I truly feel like a kid again. I've dreamed of this for SO long, and my wife's really been supportive of this.

Talk to ya later!

Thanks, lamar. Yeah, I guess "toys" are indeed in your future.

Imagine how legend you'd become at your high school or whatever if you went out that way.

Yeah, one day... he just flipped his vet. He must been doing at LEAST 190.

I am a teacher, M@. I also happen to have retired after thirty years with a pension and an IRA from a major computer manufacturer whose name is only three letters.

Nice! You'd better not be wearing a leather jacket and matching shoes and gloves when you drive that thing though, or it will seem like a "crisis" response.

Kidding. You and my editor. He just went out and bought one of those a few months ago. He even flew to Bowling Green, Kentucky, to the factory to drive the damned thing off the assembly line.

No leather jacket and shoes, but this weekend I will be wearing a helmet and gloves for my first time on the tracks.

Don't knock the BG, KY trip, James; I hear it really adds to an already exhilarating experience!

Sarcasticynic,
congrats on getting your dream car!

Why is it taking up so much time? Do you have to fix it? Do you drive it all the time? Or are you the type that polishes the car all day long?

No repairs necessary, and no day long polishing. Just the thrill of finally driving my dream car every day! I'm starting to settle down now, though, and getting back to blogging.

I'm just happy to have come across someone who shares my last name.

That's OK, supercynic, I actually had a person write to me with my name, sarcasticynic, as an e-mail ID.

Now that would make me super-duper cynical. A man's moniker is his castle.
