    We're not that cold until the evening/early morning but I feel your pain.

    Well, it is a bit nicer today. Almost 60º. :clap

    I took a little ride. I tried to find some fall colors, but they're gone. :( Even the ones we saw just a few days ago.

    I did come across this though.

    A nutcracker . . .Sweet!

    We're supposed to get more rain tomorrow, but after that, cool and mostly sunny! :clap :ricky

    I'll try to find some good stuff and take some pictures. :thumb

    Till next time y'all.

    Today was a nice riding day, and I thought it would be a good time to look at some luxury cars. :nod

    How about a nice Mercedes?

    Not into European luxury cars, maybe you'd prefer a Cadillac?

    If that's not your thing, maybe a Chrysler would work for you.

    What? You're still not happy? :dirtdog


    Maybe I should just give you a Poke In Da Eye!

    :lol3

    That's about all for this trip. I still have some ideas for future rides and pics, so keep coming back to find out what I can get myself into next!

    Till next time y'all.

    I feel like I live across the street from Clark Griswold.

    This was around midnight last night, and I don't think he's finished yet.

    I got off to a late start today. Waiting on the mail was a waste of time. :bluduh

    Good reason to take a ride. Besides, any day that ends in "Y" is a good day for a ride! :ricky

    So I went to visit Sheree at work, and then practiced my tracking skills. :patch

    And I found some!

    Oh look, another one!

    rr track 2.jpg


    Can the streak hold on? :dunno


    Yep! I found another one! :lol3

    rr track 3.jpg


    :augie


    But alas, time was running short, and I had beef stew to make, so off I went! :pynd

    :pot

    :dukegirl

    Anyway, that's it for today.

    Till next time y'all.

    Sheree was out running errands, and took a picture that she thought y'all would like.

    If I came into money, I’d buy a white Challenger and my posting name would be Kowalski.

    I was talking to the owner of a neon orange model at the market and asked why he didn’t get white. Too young. He didn’t get it.

    Sheree was correct in assuming we would like a pic of that gorgeous Mopar.

    Yeah, had some things to do, and Christmas errands to take care of that needed the truck. There will be more good days. :evil

    It was a nice day again, regardless of the Weather Chanel's predictions of 60% chance of rain, so I took a ride while Sheree was at work.

    Went to the bank, then picked up my meds. After that I visited Sheree at work and came home.

    Yeah right.

    That ain't my house. :nah

    It's the Alumnus House at UT Tyler. I thought it was a nice house though.

    Anyway, that's all for now.

    Till next time y'all.

    Everybody in the building came by my desk today to snicker at me for ridding. "Don't you watch the weather forecast?" I just smile and say yeah, when's the last time they were right? Glad you got out to enjoy it, I'm looking forward to taking the long way home.

    Merry Christmas to everyone! :wave
    I hope it was a good one for you all.

    Not much special going on here. I did go for a ride and saw all the empty stores. It was almost like riding around in the apocalypse. Eerie with all the empty stores and roads. It just needed some zombies, but I suppose that will be tomorrow when everyone goes to return all the stuff they didn't really want, or stuff that didn't fit, and get what they really wanted. :dunno

    Either way, I won't be going anywhere near them! :nono

    I didn't take any pictures. I just wanted to take a nice chilly ride, get some fresh air, and relax.

    Till next time y'all.

    It used to be a tradition to go ride Christmas, New Years, Easter, Super Bowl, Thanksgiving, etc. to have less traffic.

    Can't break away as much nowadays.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as well.

    Get any pics while out?

    Happy New Year to you, too. And here's to hoping that next year is better for all of us!

    This one has been right up there at the top of the list as the worst year ever! (Even without Covid!)

    Marfa is quite a way from us, and it must be those Aliens there that keep it weird! https://www.visitmarfa.com/marfa-lights/

    It's a bit milder here:

    this week.jpg

    Still wet and chilly, but then I may be able to get some riding in. :ricky

    I didn't stop for any pictures, just taking a ride to get a break from the Holiday Chaos. :ricky

    Usually the Holiday traffic is still a bit heavy here, but with the restrictions, most everything was shut down. I didn't care since I don't like going to crowded stores anyway, but it was strange to see it. It's been years since Walmart shut on any holiday.

    HAPPY BLESSED, PROSPEROUS, SAFE NEW YEAR TO ALL!

    Till next time y'all.
