I resisted the urge to tell the kid how much help I really need (young guys don't want to hear about old lady problems) and asked him to give me the quick 411 on sound in the New Age. He told me about this very affordable thing that's now mounted on the wall.
But back to Jimmy Buffet and my point! Buying a boat and sailing off in it (even with my terrible motion sickness) sounds heavenly after spending the last two months getting rid of things, moving things, unloading things, and now looking for new things. It's a vicious cycle and I should have listened to Jimmy months ago! Of course, Jimmy has the money to buy that thing needed to sail away in style.
Things! The most important thing to remember is . . . the best things in life are free!
If the lens in my eye could create photos, I'd show you lots of free things. Shots of the one-eared coyote running down the neighborhood street at sunset last night. The deer with the big ears who stood next to the dirt road watching us, then bounded away with all four legs airborne at the same time. Cottontails and jackrabbits running alongside us down the dirt road. Comical coveys of quail with those silly plumes on their heads who run confused when we approach on the bikes . . . .
I'll leave you with a photo of a marvelous free thing!
