I’ve got a few minutes to write .. so we’ll see where this goes. First .. the weather is warming up in the Chicago area .. that’s always a good thing. I get a bit stir crazy this time of year .. I need some fresh air to clear my mind. Funny thing is .. the phrase, stir crazy .. reminds me of one of my first dates .. years ago. I think I was around thirteen or fourteen, and I had this crush on a girl at school .. her name was Carol Ann. I think it was her quick wit that really got me going. She was fast to knock me down to size .. really funny. Anyway .. back then, my parents had to drive us to the local theater .. the Ogden 6. We went to see a fun movie called Stir Crazy … starring Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor .. still one of my favorite movies. I don’t remember exactly how the date .. but we did go out for a while. I’m not sure what she’s doing now .. but I still remember her smile. Wow .. that came out of no where.
This weekend I’ll be stopping by the Halloween show in Rosemont … no really it’s trick or treatin’ time. This is actually a trade show for the Halloween/party industry .. and it’s always this time of year. I’ll bring my little digital camera along .. and we’ll get some cool pics. Lately I’ve been working in my shop .. trying to get that all straightened out again. It’s difficult to find the time … but I’m working on it .. and a million other things. Rex will be going back to puppy school in a week or so .. he really enjoys going to class and seeing the other dogs. He’s been doing really well .. not tearing up to many things lately.
I’ve had a lot of things running through my mind lately … some good, some bad. Not enough time to get into that right now. The spring will be upon us soon .. so I can’t wait to spend more time outside and hit the road again ..
