Wet this morning, although not actually raining as I drove in. Issue at work came back because as soon as the original bug was fixed another popped up. Now its about the number of files sent, over 2000+ but the issue isn’t that I’m afraid, more interesting I think, not sure yet.


Went over to the Suwanee T-Mac and had the BOTM after a French Broad Easy IPA, very GOOD IPA IMHO. Then I had the Sierra NEvada Torpedo IPA and it just didn’t float my boat. Lastly I had the Victory Moonglow, nice Bock beer, enjoyed it. I got to chat with a gal, Susan, a bit heavy but nice. Then Bonnie came in, wow, I really have a hard time NOT staring between her boobs, yes, boobs not tits. Swoon. I wish. Oh yeah, I got the Tumbler glass I forgot Thursday before last.

Chatted with a dude from the Mall of GA Honda, John works at the service department, need to get some stuff done to the car and have him do it. Brakes, about $500, then the clunk in the back tires may be the axle, he thinks I could tighten the nut on it and it may go away.

Took the bones and the skull from the “bird” that I found on the Big Creek Greenway several months ago and watched decay, and put them into a pan with some bleach in the hopes to whiten and clean them up. We will see what they look like in the morning and throughout the weekend if need be.

Gave Autumn a call after getting home. Looks like we may be going to the Chili Cookoff at Stone Mountain. Why do I always seem to get to Stone Mountain with the Rampey Crew? Mellissa, Ellen and crew are still with Autumn in a pack, guess it is wonderful to have life long friends. No driving drunk for me though.

Bought 1976 Honda Civic for a winter car.
It was a real piece of sh**. It was white and if you rubbed against it you became white also.
By the end the only thing left was either rust or rust, most of the floorboards were gone.
I got rid of it when we moved back down south, sold it to a salvage yard for thirty-five dollars.

Bought 1988 RX-7 Turbo – Red. I all but bought the car on the phone. Called several dealerships till I found the one I was looking for and then worked out all the financing at my bank.
On a friday I picked up the check and hitched a ride with a friend that was going to Florida. I was dropped off at the Mazda dealership in Charleston SC. There I signed the papers and drove off with the car.

Bought first NEW car: 1984 Ford Thunderbird, Actually, my dad worked out the deal for the car at a local Ford dealer in Okeechobee. Got a trade in for my Yamaha Seca 400 motorcycle and worked out the loan for me. It was a big help!

**bought a motorcycle

Yamaha Seca 400
Bought a Yamaha SECA 400 Motorcycle. Loved cruising around in it. Had only a couple of big spills. One required several stitches to my hip after slamming into a small truck when he pulled out in front of me just before Archer Rd.
The second was when a car rolled into me and the bike onto Archer Road because the driver did not properly engage his brake before he went into the 7-eleven.
Lastly, the bike was parked in front of my apartment when a drunk crashed into my brother’s van which then crushed the bike.
The bike was about $200 from being totaled and spent several weeks under our staircase in pieces before all the parts came in. I then re-assembled it but it never really ran right after that. Traded it in on my Ford Thunderbird in August 1984.
