just in time
I have been a car nut since my earliest memories.
Growing up in the 60's was a fine era to be a car nut and an adolescent. I recently bought this somewhat rare automobile as it was one of my favorites way back when. It is a 1967 Ford Thunderbird, fordor with suicide doors.
I have had some difficulties getting it to this point. I imported it from a seller in Canada and had it shipped down to Texas. It's been in the mechanics shop for the past 3 weeks just getting prepared for inspection. That's all done and it's now what is termed a daily driver. As with any older mechanical item, it will always need maintenance and repairs. Of course, I can say the same thing about myself.
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for the Step 3 meeting yesterday morning -- it was just what I needed to carry me through the day
that my major turning point was 1715 days ago and occurred just when I needed it
that I am not a government bureaucrat
that I watched The Steve Miller Band on PBS last night -- great stuff!!
that my new, old car is finally on the road
Joy is the simplest form of gratitude.
