Strangeness and Challenges

Well I've had a strange couple of weeks...  A couple of weeks ago, on the way to a show, I had some serious car problems which resulted in my car overheating to the point that the engine was fried.  So I've been car shopping the past couple of weeks (haven't found quite what I want just yet) and dealing with "transportation issues".

Then last week, I was out on my bicycle running a few errands, and my bike and I fell down... Hard...  Going really fast...  On hard pavement...  Ouch.

Banged up, and scraped up, my arm pretty badly, but luckily not so much that I'm not functional.

I guess sometimes you just need a few reminders to pay attention, be patient, and go with the flow.  My friend, Andrew, likes to remind me to discern the difference between a "problem" and an "inconvenience".  He claims that whenever he's tempted to start feeling sorry for himself and thinking he has a "problem", a little voice pops up and says, "This isn't a problem.  You want to see a real problem?"  No thanks!  Reminders.  Valuable lessons.  Gotta love that.

Anyway, I'm healing... my arm and my pocketbook.

Hey, feel free to come out and see me this Saturday evening at the Mt. Pulaski 175th Celebration in Mt. Pulaski, Illinois.  Should be a fun time.
