Life is just a tire swing…

Wednesday night here in New Jersey. DS2 just go home from work. He was supposed to be off today but they called him in when someone else called out sick. He has succeeded turning his scheduled 27 hour week into a 36 hour week once again.  Good for him.  DS1 worked a full day at the tree farm. He sent a picture of the truck he is learning to drive. He posted this on Face Book today. I will repost at the bottom of the blog. My DW worked a full a day. Tonight she went to yoga after dinner. The class is in the summer doldrums, or everyone might be on vacation. There were only six women in the class tonight.  I did not go because my leg still hurts.

I worked today as well. Another busy, post vacation day for me.  I have an MRI scheduled for 7:30 am Friday morning. I had several choices of times and figured that the first appointment might, might be on time since there would be no patients ahead of me.  I sprayed the wasp nest today with a can of bee and wasp killer. I hosed their front door for about 45 seconds before they started to come out looking for trouble. I’m going to chop away a little each day. I’m not running too fast these days.

Life is just a tire swing is from a Jimmy Buffett song  of the same name.  Here is the pertinent set of lyrics for tonight:

Then the other morning on some Illinois road
I fell asleep at the wheel,
But was quickly wakened up by a ‘Ma Bell’
telephone pole, and a bunch of Grant Wood
Faces screaming, ‘Is he still alive?’
But through the window could see
it hangin’ from a tree, and I knew
I had survived.

No, not me. The child whose story de’ jour has not yet written been about today day owns this one. DS3 went to Morey’s Pier in Wildwood to celebrate a friends birthday today. He fell asleep driving on the GSP on the ride home this evening. Fortunately for him, not the car next to him, there was a car next to him. He bounced off that car and woke up before he could leave the roadway.  The Mustang has minor damage to the passenger side.  He received a ticket for careless driving for his effort. But, he is still alive and learning from each experience that he encounters.

Tonight’s picture is of the truck that DS1 is learning to drive. Tomorrow I may post pictures of the Mustang. When he got home tonight it was too dark to take decent pictures.  Enjoy!
