"You know J.R. is making deals" __ Hank Williams Jr __ 'This Ain't Dallas'



~2 months ago, I was ~110 pounds b/c of not eating or sleeping. Still not sleeping, but starting to eat. With that, I've had a bit more energy (& 'fight') to start working on some projects & found this note written by a friend ~9 years ago:

"My friend, if I could give you one gift, I would give you the ability to see yourself as others see you. Then you would realize what a truly special person you are."


Made me smile, but my hunch is most of us can't see ourselves the way others seem to.... "Tough times" make that harder. While family & friends are discussing engagements, kids, pets, classic car season, gatherings & events, home & car purchases, adventures, opportunities, etc., I'm watching my "glass floor" shatter.... Fun times ... NOT!


On the plus side, part of my new-found energy is my facebook page ... OLD CARS, STRONG HEARTS. A friend wrote this about it:

"Kinda feels like hangin' out at Al's Diner from Happy Days. Music, cars; I guess that makes you Fonzie!"


People keep asking what they can do to help; well, something easy & no-cost for those on facebook ... "like" the page & have fun with it!



Nephew & Niece are doing just fine. Nephew told his Mom (my sister) recently, "I hope I get to see Uncle Cort today!" Niece is almost 4 months old ... ALREADY!



So, how about you?

Glad to hear you're well, Cort.

News on my end?

- A couple of weeks ago I passed my comprehensive exams. One more hurdle to jump now before I can write my dissertation.

- We're expecting our second child in September.

Thank you, Lamar! Congrats on passing those exams ... good luck with your dissertation!

Thank you, dfelt ... much appreciated! Wondered if anyone would remember me; it's been 2 months since I've visited! As for that positive flow, not so sure that's in the cards anymore....

Life has no pause button & regret is built upon untaken chances ... partly why I started my OLD CARS, STRONG HEARTS facebook page.
What momentarily takes away the sting of consequences for choices made & broken promises, commitments, loyalty? A 4-month-old grinning big for you &/or a 4-year-old burying you in stuffed animals! I took this pic of my Nephew & Niece earlier this month:

At the end of February, I served as a juror in Kane (IL) County. I had fun; it was cool to finally be IN a trial, vs. being called & dismissed twice before. The "Trial By Jury" video we saw the 1st day was ssssooo 1980s, complete with narrator Floyd Brown (original voice of the Victory Auto Wreckers commercial).
Since the end of January, I've managed Autosavant's facebook page on a trial-run basis:
They want me to stay past March 31; I haven't decided yet. The site's focus is newer cars:
I enjoyed this parody, done by Kevin Gordon for a series he films for Autosavant:
