Do You Feel Lucky, Punk?




I’ve worked the last twelve or thirteen days in a row. I’ve lost count because it’s been just too damn many days in a row, but there you go.

I’m leaving for Charlottesville today after clinic. I’m ready to walk around the grounds of Monticello and see the trees and flowers and sunshine and the house and the whole works. I’m ready to explore a trail or two. I want to take about a half billion pictures.

I would like to do all this without needing a poncho and umbrella.

The weather is a coin toss right now. Fifty-fifty pretty much. I’m an optimist. I have hotel reservations. I’m ready to drive. I’m going. It can snow for all I care. That would make for some fabulous pictures and a good story.

Sometimes, you just have to make your plans and stick to them. You check your weather app, you weigh the odds, and then you ask yourself.

Do you feel lucky, punk?

Pictures will follow from Virginia.

Count on it.

  1. When you are gleefully singing in the car you may want to keep the windows up, rain is not good for the interior, fingers crossed you get sunshine, lots of it. Greg enjoy the trip, relax. ~D


  2. Now, Diane,

    You know, outdoor girl that you are, that a little rain never hurt anybody. I’m a good Boy Scout.

    I am so looking forward to heading up the interstate and out of my own life for a while. I’m quite sure you know what I mean.

    I just saw your last two blog posts. I marvel at how much courage it takes to go through what you’ve been through, as have your comrades-in-arms.

    Take care of yourself. Yes, there will be pictures of Tom’s house, his gardens and whatever else I can see.
