    A shrewd car collector friend once told me “I often pay too much for a car and sell it to cheap, but still make money”

    After I got my first motorcycle, a '79 sportster that was way too small for me, I would embrace my inner trashiness and park on the front lawn. Almost every time I did, the 12 year old kid across the street would come out of his house, raise his fist in the air and yell, "Live to die!" then go back in.

    Reminds me of a 1/4 midget race I watched as a kid. Little girl pulled into the pits at the end of her race crying because she thought she hadn't won. Reality - She had lapped everyone but the second place car.

    "I’ve got all of the miles on this machine, but the roads weren’t always paved..."



    Hello,

    This is the mantra for all of us older guys and girls. We have had to “roll with the punches” in our long, life history, to get along in this complicated world. The miles are always going to be there, some of our history got cut short, (brother at age 52). But, the family history continues with the memories, friends, photos, and stories written down in a journal.

    Jnaki

    The body is preserved as much as possible...but outside influences can’t be changed. We just have to adjust the jets and move on to a different direction in life.

    "I could care less!" Then you should! Unless of course if you are like me and in fact you don't care at all.

    BTW it really is "I couldn't care less!"

    While driving your rear engine road rocket through the twisties at a slightly higher than posted speed.

    "If I ever go missing, I want my picture on a bottle of beer instead of a milk carton. That way my friends will know I am missing."

    Hello,

    This quote reminded me of an art project I made one year. It was a milk carton pattern that I printed photos of a friend’s car and put on labels of a real company on the outside.

    It got quite a chuckle when he saw the real life size milk carton with his photo on the outside.

    I am not missing, (although I can hide out in our small house quietly…) But, it just as an example. HA!

    Lauren Duski “Just like that...it all comes back to you...Deja Vu”

    Hello,

    When we were watching a singing competition on the big screen a long time ago, a singer happen to catch our eye. Her style was pretty good and we tried following her career for a while. But, in a published story about her career in music, she had a great comment for all to read:

    “Just like that...it all comes back to you...Deja Vu” from her song: Deja Vu

    It is kind of a sad song about various aspects of living together. But, what country song doesn’t have some stories in it?

    Jnaki

    Yes, it is somewhat similar to Yogi Berra’s quote:
    "It's like Deja Vu all over again." But, Yogi Berra can’t sing.
