Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day here in the states, so–
I give thanks for making it home yesterday. No small thing that, the Grey Lady took a fit of rough running as I was coming through Paducah. Reason: It was starting to rain a bit, and this old van’s ignition has a weak spot where wet weather is concerned. It’s the way the distributor cap is designed, I have a suspicion GM engineers never tested this in sloppy weather because this design is particularly vulnerable.
But, anyways, by the time I-24 terminates at I-57 and I started heading North, it had cleaned up and I made the rest of the trip OK.
For the rest: I have a roof over my head, food to eat, clothes on my back and friends who have stood by me when I needed it. Can’t ask for better than that.
Avoiding the “Black Friday” madness– an added bonus. What’s not to like?
