5 Silverados

Just five silverados last night at work.

I was hoping to photograph six but I don’t know where the time went. The five I did do were parked in what is probably the worst spot on the lot with no room at all so I tend to take it slow and get out a look to make sure I don’t hit another one.

I doubt I’m going to work later today though due to the big winter storm. The commute would be longer than my actual shift. I will now later in the day.

On Subscribing to Spotify

I have canceled and uncanceled my spotify subscription so many times I can’t count but I keep coming back to spotify even though BW and I share a google play music subscription and it a lot of ways they duplicate each other, but I find that both have different qualities that I like and so I figure I can find the ten bucks a month it costs to pay for my spotify entertainment.

I especially enjoy the weekly curated ‘discover’ playlist that spotify has as well. Also, this playlist has probably every song I grew up with with something like 1000 songs or more, there’s always a song I haven’t heard in years.

Speaking of which U2’s the Joshua Tree was released 30 years ago earlier this week.

30 YEARS! How did that happen?

Enchilada Pie

BW made enchilada pie tonight, and it was pretty good. She would say it was delicious but as I’m the fussy eater in the house I’m not sure I would have it again. But, thedog and I got fed so I guess if we like living indoors we should not complain too loudly.

Sold 2008 Apple iMac

I just watched my Apple iMac leave the house, sold to some young man on craigslist:

It’s a 2008 model, and I maxed out the RAM and replaced the hard drive with a faster one, but I didn’t really need it and besides: the rule is if something comes in the house then something has to leave and I’m eyeing a new phone so maybe I can get BW to okay that purchase now that I’ve gotten rid of some crap.

I paid about $170 for this with upgrades and sold it for $150.00 so I didn’t pay too much of an Apple tax for this item. It ran surprisingly well for a 9 year old computer but I have others to use so I will survive without this for now.

9 Silverados

I was in and out of **nine **different Chevrolet Silverados today and let me tell you that I wish they had heated seats becasuse it was cold today for sure at about 20 degrees. I thought, or hoped we were through with this winter stuff but apparently not quite yet.
