Here's Where The Story Ends

So during Rondalla practice last night rockstar Orenthal was messin' around as usual and played some chords that totally reminded me of The that's a CD I haven't heard in ages. And there's a reason for that -- I go digging into my CD binders and wouldn't you know it...2 blank slots in between Swing Out Sister and Lisa Stansfield. All I have is their Blind album. Grrrr...another CD that was lost with that blue wallet containing some 20 other CDs. To this day, a year and a half later, I still can't figure out what da hell happened to that wallet. It just magically walked away, probably now enjoying the warmth of a white Honda Civic driven down Geary by some hot Filipina chick whose boyfriend just happened to find the wallet on the street somewhere and gave it to her as a gift. She's probably listening to my Sundays CD right now!

Whatever. There's a Tower next to the Rite Aid in Mountain View. After I pick up my pills I'll stop by and check out the records. Hehehehhehe..."records". I remember those days way back in high school of using my lunch money each week to go buy some vinyl at Tower Sports Arena. I wonder if they're still there? And then going home and immediately transferring the album to tape -- because you don't want to wear the record out! -- and then sticking it in that old Craig cassette deck in that old brown Ford Fairmont station wagon. 3.3 liters of carbureted 6-cylinder pushrod fury! What a great car...88 hp, 3 speed automatic (column shifted, of course!), 0-60 in an eternal 3 hours with a top speed of 85 mph...manual pumawis steering, Fox chassis (same as the Mustang!), bench seat, manual windows, and fold down rear seat. Now that was a high school ride to be proud of... Oh yeah, and don't forget to pretension the tape before loading it into the deck, or else bye bye tape!

Think I'll take a spin out in the east bay tonight -- they say it dips into the 80s at night... perfect convertible weather.

Isn't it great?!? Took a detour this weekend out through Marsh Creek Road and found myself in the middle of nowhere -- it was so hot but the breeze was good and the roads were curvy.
