4-11-09 Spring In The Spring
It's time for the old guy to get back to looking at his active participation in life, so, I'm starting with the trail.
I noticed today that the trailside spring project looks almost done, now. Over the winter, a young fellow has been singlehandedly making these "improvememts" to the little spring, and now it looks as if it's about ready for people to enjoy. As the summer progresses, and the elephant ears grow in the outflow stream, it should take on a very soothing appearence.
I was thinking as I rode today, that my oldest daughter introduced me to Facebook not long ago, and since joining that happy group, I've become "friends" with a large number of my four girls' schoolmates, as well as a few of my own. Since starting to communicate with my old high school crowd, I've began to reminisce bigtime. I've started cataloging some of my teenage adventures in Hawaii at Willie C's Honolulu, and waxing very nostalgic on Facebook with my friend Lew, whom I'd only seen twice since 1954. I suppose that nostalgia is a favorite pastime for old people, and there's no doubt that I'm an old person.
