The Weekend Ballad of the Oil Drain Plug

Nearly everything went well for my holiday weekend. Nearly everything with the exception of my automobiles. For the 4th, Ellie and I spent the afternoon with a friend of mine from college and then in the evening we had dinner at Ellie’s parents’ place. All was normal. On Saturday, we went to my parents for a […]

Sobelman's Bloody Mary

Weekend Activities Were Spot On

This past weekend was notable in a couple of ways. Ellie came to visit and we got out and did some things we had wanted to do for a while. Since the weather was near perfect, we decided to take advantage of it so we could cross a bit off our list. Farmer’s Market and […]

Kawasaki KZ650

Today, I only have one motorcycle because today, I finally sold the 1978 Kawasaki KZ650 I bought a few years back with the intention of getting it running. It’s a good feeling because I felt guilty in recent years for not having the time to work on it.

10 Things I Want to be Remembered For

Someday, I will die. I hope to go peacefully as my grandpa did, lying on the couch in his sleep. I don’t want to be as young as him because he never really got to know any of his grandkids but still, peacefully in my sleep. At the end of my life, I hope someone […]

Terrible Customer Service

I love my motorcycle. I really do and I think that I’ve made that clear over the years. You’ve heard stories and seen pictures. If you’ve never been sick of my love for my motorcycle, you must never have really had a chance to get to know me. The problem is, however, that motorcycles can […]

AWOL No More

I’ve been on hiatus. I’m back now, hopefully more regularly than the past six months. I know I did some writing here and there, and there would be spurts where I’d post a bunch every couple of days, but that’s not what I want. I want to write daily. Those every couple of day posts […]

March Updates

I’ve been too busy lately. A lot of time was taken up by my grandma’s last few weeks. We had an unusual amount of family visiting to say their goodbyes and that kind of thing really keeps you busy. It’s not something I recommend for any of you. Work has also been keeping me busy. […]

January, What Happened?

January has been busy to the point where even when I have time to write, I don’t because I’m exhausted. Work, and commuting to and from work each day, really takes a lot out of me. There’s not much else to say in that area except I can describe my job by quoting Tom Smykowski […]

Things I have to keep in mind

I officially accepted my invitation today. I would have done it sooner, but I wanted to read over the required material before accepting. I couldn’t do that because it was delivered to my parents house, so my mom offered to bring it up today. After reading over the Welcome Book, I’ve come to realize a […]
