Out Of Gas

Yes, I have run out of gas while driving, but that’s not what I am writing about today. In this post I wrote about a current medical condition. While the prescription was filled later that day and I have now been taking the medication for ten days, my symptoms have not improved.

This condition is leading to very poor sleep, both in terms of quantity and quality. As a result, I am extremely fatigued. (Yes, I have informed my medical provider of the lack of improvement. I am waiting for a response; I wish I still had a concierge doctor.)

It is said that growing older beats the alternative. Sometimes I’m not so sure.


Hard to segue from that beginning…


Readers may notice that In Or Out?, Throwback Thursday and Frugal Friday have not been appearing on a regular basis. Before I decide how and/or if I want to continue these features, I would like to read your thoughts.

At first, I was going to ask you to rate the three features in order of your interest in them. I decided that was an unnecessary manifestation of my need to make order out of chaos. Still, I would like to read what you think of those features and even suggestions for others. Thanks.


As always, I enjoyed watching yesterday’s NBCSN broadcasts of the Mecum auctions, which are being held right now in Kissimmee, Florida. Usually, Mecum’s Kissimmee auction is held in January and is their largest event of the year. Of course, this is not a normal year. This is a second Kissimmee event for 2020.

From a still from a YouTube video comes an image of a car like the one John Kraman really liked from yesterday’s lots. For the nth time, Mecum does not allow its online photos from current or recent auctions to be captured.

This is a 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, hopefully in Granada Gold. The Mecum example, very original and looking like it’s in excellent condition, hammered for $42,000 meaning the buyer paid $46,200 all in.

I am somewhat of a heretic in that I much prefer the looks of the GM A-Body cars from 1964 to 1967 to the ones that were built later. Sorry, but something about the C-pillar and rear fender/quarter of those ’68-’72 A-Body coupes just seems off to me. Beauty is supposed to be in the eye of the beholder although I think most people are dogmatic and intolerant.

What do you think? I welcome thoughtful comments. I added that last sentence because the sum of the digits in the word count was 13.
