A Good Day

First the coupe news...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Four years into the build and I have to wait two months for a couple 15.00 exhaust parts. Dudes, not really feeling the Midas touch here. Yawn, back to my Oregon induced coma...


Really can't let the day pass without noting the terrific events of this morning. Felt good to feel proud of our president again. Felt even better to hear a president that didn't sound like Porky Pig meets Sylvester the Cat. Didn't feel so great though listening to a gigantic Queen of Soul screeching for more cake. I know they said she was singing God Bless America but I couldn't tell. Wasn't as bad as that poem though. Man, that was hard to sit through. Good thing the poet spoke after the president, or else most people would have missed the speech.

The speech.

A+ for being inspirational and also telling it like it is. Wouldn't hurt all of us to listen to it again and heed the advice. In a nutshell? He promised to do a good job and extolled all of us to be better citizens. Amen brother.

God bless President Obama. He's stepping up to the plate with two outs and nobody on. Let's hope he swings for the fences.
