A Miserable Day?
Take what we are given I guess and enjoy the most of it... what a pleasure it was watching the Jupitorial swirls of these various shades of grey overhead on a very slow day waiting for the dispatch thingy to go "ping" (well, it's actually more a tweet then an ring a ling)... finally it did.
Tossing away another "nine cent" smoke, and like the superhero I've become... seriously, I deliver people from one place to another simply by tilting my ankle and keeping my hulking steel mobile between the yellow and white lines of the roadways... I set out on yet another mission of... deliverance. This time my fare was a sweeter older lady who was off to fetch her own CAR... the glorious chit chat unfolded (as it so often does).
Somewhere amongst the usual pleasantries, the descriptions of our past and presents, we'd both noted how much we so enjoyed this season, agreeing that it was easily one of the four best seasons there is AND how now, even with most of the leaves blown away, the city was still so absolutely pretty. I must have said something about my earlier view of the swirling clouds as she shared how just a moment of her own earlier she'd been captured by the view of a cardinal sitting in a bush with red berries out on her front lawn. An image of a cardinals, alongside red berries against the swirling grey late fall clouds swerved it's way into my driving mind. Weren't we having a grand ol' time, this sweeter older lady and I as we rolled along watching the rain begin to fall for the rest of the day on this pretty little city of ours.
As we pulled into the Volvo dealership, she was having snow tires put on, I noticed a nice overhang covering the entrance to the service center and drove right up n' almost into the garage so that she could step out of the rain. As we "cashed out" and said our goodbyes... leaving one last remark, "Keep an eye on that Cardinal" as she shut the door ending yet another limestone circle in CAR 29... Take what we're given, give a little more and enjoy the most of it... or, so it goes.
