Happy Thanksgiving…

I wasn’t going to post today. I’m not “blaming” this post on OCD so much as on a desire to make up for lost time given the two hiatuses (March, October-November) and the fact that days with posts have more views and visitors than days without.

I am thankful for my wonderful wife and for my small circle of real family and friends. I am thankful that we have moved to the desert. I am also thankful that (he wrote hoping not to jinx anything) we have no financial worries.

Some photos:

 

******************

The paradox of choice…now that we’re in the desert we are going to buy a car in the next 2-3 months. Even though its cargo area is not small, my Z06 is not an optimal grocery car. Besides, we are hoping to have visitors and can’t get three or four people in a Corvette.

The problem is that because of the plethora of choices and my own OCD- and ADD-addled brain I just can’t decide what car to buy. The short garage would seemingly rule out a car like a 2000-02 Cadillac Eldorado, but this is Arizona where the car could be parked on the driveway. Many of our neighbors do that.

Do we want to buy another convertible? Do we want a more modern, as in more serviceable, car from around 2015? The list of questions is seemingly endless as is my droning about this choice.

Remember that this odyssey started a long time ago with a focus on cars like this:

 

 

The top picture is a 1965 Buick Riviera while the bottom is a 1964 Studebaker GranTurismo Hawk. For many reasons, neither car would be a practical choice in any way, shape or form. Still…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving and a Happy Anniversary

I wish everyone (well, maybe not everyone) a Happy Thanksgiving. Tomorrow will also be a day for which I am especially thankful as it will be the 22nd anniversary of the day I met the wonderful woman who has been my wonderful wife for more than 20 years. V Squared, I LOVE YOU!!!

Here is a picture that brings a smile to my face and, hopefully, to yours:

 

 

Of course, this is a picture of my 2016 Corvette Z06. Today is eight months (!) that the car was delivered. I wish I had driven it more than the 2,200-ish miles it has accumulated under my right foot. Oh well, there’s always next spring…

I probably will not post again until Saturday. Please have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving.
