Ronnie.. you're the best.. around!. ha .. now that is awkward. btw, who is gonna be next?

Pitts.. that bites about your friend from the past having a controlling husband with obviously no self-confidence to say such outlandish stuff. I feel bad for her.

Kev.. I'm not going to say too much at the moment, but congrats dude and totally keep us updated .. we are rooting hard for you in every way.

All the best to you and your family Kev [Smile]

Eek, I do sort of cringe when people mention school reunions. That's one of the last things I'd wanna do lol [Smile]

Kev - That's awesome, I sincerely hope everything goes well for you and your Bride. [Smile]

Thanks Pitts! I'm totally fine with running into people, but I found it funny that it happened twice in one week and the conversations were just very strange...call me shy haha.

As for school reunions.. no way, Jose.. not for me. I skipped my 10 year. Highschool was a blur anyway!

Oh and I think you just tried to compliment me, Val in an 'awkward' way, of course.. only you! [Razz]

Thanks guys. A bit of an emotional roller coaster, as we're trying to be excited, but proceeding cautiously for obvious reasons.

Re high school reunions, we didn't have a 10 year reunion either. I didn't really fit in high school, but not for any reasons that "jump out at ya"...just kinda under the radar. I was nice to literally everyone, and could socialize with most, but never really great friends with any one group, with a few exceptions. * The reunion was actually quite important for me for that reason...I kinda grew into myself. I always felt that people had low expectations of me, and didn't expect much...for some reason I needed to show them they were wrong. I literally shook every person's hand very firmly and looked each and every one in the eye...a kind of "I done alright" moment. I know it shouldn't have mattered as much as it did, but it did for some reason.

Sorry for rambling, but wanting to put one more thing in perspective. I was never a great scholar and during the last two years of high school, I was working 30 + hours at a gas station while going to school full time. Never had plans to go to University, rather, take a trade of some sort. I so vividly remember driving past a University about an hour away from my town with a group of friends while in grade 12...they all started rambling about what college they were going to, what they would do, and someone laughed and stated that in the future, they would come to the gas station I worked at, and I could put gas in their nice car. That is very literally the exact moment I decided that I would go to University.....

At least it's Wednesday.. [Smile]

Kids are going back to school this week. I am so glad that we are getting closer towards the Fall because the heat and humidity here, is just too much. I love winter in Phoenix because it's not really that cold but it gets chilly and it's perfect.

Hope everyone is having a nice week!

So what is everyone up to? I know alot of kids are going back to school this week and the next, as Ronnie mentioned. I hope this means quieter streets at night (they love to race up and down our street all night). I am debating on whether or not to take a mini-vacation at the end of October or just save my money and take a full week next year in the fall. I really want to go to Montauk and maybe we'll just wait for that next year. Has anyone been there before? I looked at a few places to rent- one was a condo, one was a trailer/mobile home and one was a cottage; all fairly reasonably priced for the Hamptons. I am not rich, but I want to see Long Island, always have wanted to see it. And the cost will be about the same as if I rented a place anywhere else near the shore. If any of you has been there or near Montauk, let me know what you think and what restaurants you would recommend.

For the love of god will people *stop* using autotune?! It's gonna reaaaaally date this era when it goes out of fashion! It doesn't even make songs sound better!

As an owner/driver of British cars for years, I can assure you that they break down. in fact, my experience has been, the more expensive, the more likely to need a full-time mechanic in your garage. [Wink]

I've been through Land Rovers, MGs ("MG" stands for "mostly garage" because there is always something leaking from the crank case), and Triumphs myself. My brother can add Austins, Rover cars, and Range Rovers. I have had friends with Austin-Healeys, Jaguars, and Bentleys. They were all beautiful machines, a joy to drive when running, but the problems were always related to some sort of really poor design. For example, a friend had an Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III, the Sean Connery James Bond car. The master clutch cylinder was always failing. But, of course, in the Brit design paradigm of the 1960's, the clutch cylinder and brake cylinder were together, so that when the one cylinder failed, you also had no brakes. He drove it for three months like this--no clutch, no brakes. I was like, "My gosh, man, how the heck did you drive it?" He said that if you owned a British car, you learned the tricks. Push it into a coast out of your driveway, jump in, and start it. If you watch the tachometer, you can shift without the clutch. And if you downshift carefully, you never have to use the brakes at stop lights and stop signs, etc. You just creep up on them." Of course, my friend is completely nuts. (He still has the car in his garage. It hasn't moved in 25 years.)

The 12-cylinder Jags, while incredibly fast, were notorious for gumming up and running on less than the 12 cylinders. Old Bentleys, with all those hand-tooled, one-of-a-kind parts, were mechanical disasters too. And one more joke at the expense of the British car industry: Folks who've owned British cars know that a magic ingredient makes them work--smoke. When the smoke comes out, they stop running. [Smile] (There is some truth to that. The Lucas electrical system in British cars of that era was hideous--cloth-insulated wires with a positive ground and a negative hot wire, an unbelievably bad design.)

Despite all my carping, I still love them though and miss every one of them that I owned. They are just such cool cars. [Smile]

I completely understand, MT and HS. It's not life that ever disappoints me. It's the people in life who sometimes do. The best advice I ever heard, and yet the hardest to take myself on a daily basis is that "Only I can make myself unhappy. Other folks do not control the way that I feel." If I could only truly follow that daily affirmation... [Smile]

Whoo, I agree with ya. I'm going to have this put on my headstone: "Sorry, it's too late. I don't have time for you. You see, I'm gone forever now and you had no time for me while I was living."
