Night Ranger 'Dawn Patrol'

Whew! It has been a very long week, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I had a GREAT time hanging out with Two Guys Named Chris and Deidre. Sure, as much as Kelly mentioned me by name and filling in for a vacationing Goat Boy, listeners kept calling me “Goat” when they called in. So, I’m guessing here… Maybe some listeners aren’t so good at listening. :)

Nothing much happened with me this week because I was too busy working. Surprisingly, my Netflix habit didn’t suffer that much. I managed to watch a few flicks during the week.

I also received my Buffy The Vampire Slayer seasons 1, 2, and 3 on Wednesday. I purchased them on eBay for 45 smackers with shipping included. Season 1’s case was a little scuffed up around the edges, but all the DVD’s were in fine and working order. I was quite pleased with my find. I had just about giving up on finding any bargains anymore on eBay.

When your faith is restored, it’s a great feeling!

Last night (Friday), Christine and I hit the Left Field Tavern right behind the First Horizon Park. I was putting down some Yuenglings along with a few shots of Jim Beam Black. Hey, I gotta throw in my support for Robby Gordon in the Jim Beam Chevrolet!

We sat outside to get away from the loud karaoke happenings inside the bar. As the night moved on, more people moved out. There was a group of people standing directly in front of the door blocking the path from the patio to the bar. I walked up thinking they would cut a path for me and one girl even pointed out that I was coming through. But this one cat said, “I ain’t moving.”

His friend pulled him out of my way by the arm, but I made sure to bump him with my shoulder as I passed by. I said, “excuse me” as I did it… You just can’t back down from jerks and assholes.

Later on, before we left on our separate ways, I had to hit the head. As I was coming back, the same asshole had set up a “road block” in my path. There was no way around the jerk so I excused myself as I kind of guided him out of my way with a hand on the back. I was amazed that he didn’t protest.

I changed my thinking about the guy… Perhaps he wasn’t an asshole; maybe he was just a dumb ass.

As Christine and I were walking to our cars, the moon was full and hiding behind one of the tall buildings in downtown Greensboro. It was beautiful and I wished that I had my camera with me.

I’ve GOT to start carrying it with me at all times!

When I got home, I broke out my tripod and set up for a couple of shots of the moon. It was a wonderful show with the high clouds floating around. I took several shots, but this is the only one that I liked from the bunch.

Well, that pretty much does it for me. Sorry about the shortness of the update, I will catch you Monday and hopefully I’ll have a story involving something interesting. And maybe even a few pictures!

I’m really getting into this photography thing!

    Any cars sponsored by a top-shelf tequila? I would be willing to drink to that driver if that were the case.

  2. I'm not sure, Brad. Mostly, it's whiskey brands.
