the rest of the week

Tomorrow I will be shooting a video for a power supply coolant thing-a-ma-doo. I'll be heading out to Riverview to do that. On Wednesday I'm helping my boss relocate some items from his street office to the home office. Thursday is Thanksgiving Day in the USA. I will be in Inverness visiting Pop for that (obviously). Friday, Saturday, Sunday? No clue. 🙂

It is currently (as of 9:45pm) 50° F here in Tampa FL and 30° in Dayville CT (where I used to live - and 30 is two degrees below freezing!) Last week I officially started wearing a coat due to the colder weather, but it should be noted that I was able to wear a t-shirt outside and be comfortable until the third week of November. Not too shabby. Not shabby a'tall. Wear-a-coat weather usually starts in third week of September back up north, a full two months earlier.


Concerning Thanksgiving, I am very thankful this year for many things, which include musical success, new friends and obviously moving to Florida among other things.

Concerning Christmas, I am looking forward to one that has not one inch of snow involved, and no crappy driving conditions either. No sand/plow trucks, no black ice. No frozen hair when walking outside before your hair dries. No "de-icer", no brushing snow off the car, no ice scrapers. No waking up in the morning, looking outside and thinking (Sigh..) Not this crap again. None of that.

All of these "no's" make Richard a very happy camper. 😀

It's a beautiful thing. Truly.


Important note: For those of you would like to receive a Christmas card from me, drop me a line with your mailing address and I'll send one to you. (Seriously, I will!)
