The rain ended by the time I arrived, and the show went on as planned. It was good. But I had to turn away during a couple of songs and just listen without looking at him. I did that because he was wearing khaki pants, some kind of a Hawaiian-looking shirt and boat shoes. I don't know what I expected him to be wearing. Leather pants? Aviator sunglasses like he wore back in the day?
Had to work Saturday, and laid low Saturday night. Enjoyed sitting in the back yard on a cool summer evening. At some point after my wife went inside I fell asleep right there under the stars. It was only for a short time but I felt refreshed when I woke up. It was sort of like a mini camp-out.
Sunday I traded my motorcycle for my bicycle and went for what turned out to be a challenging ride on the Old Baldy Trail in the Black Hills. It's been 15 years at least since I last rode that trail and my skills and fitness level were much better then than now. I made it, but it was a tough one for me this time. Well worth the effort, though, because of scenery like this...
The next day was Monday, August 12th. The day the Perseid meteor shower was supposed to peak. We went outside again that night and looked up. It was only a short wait for the first one. Then another. And another! It was pretty cool. More than once we each let out an "ohhhhhh!" and an "ahhhhh!" Plus a few of those gasping sounds you make when you excitedly suck in a bunch of air. I can make that sound but I can't spell it. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about, having made it yourself on several occasions no doubt. Maybe when you saw a meteor streak by in the night sky.
So that's it. A brief history of the past four days in my life. Not that you should care all that much. But, I do believe it's good to review life's events every few days. Even write them down sometimes. That way you might remember them longer. They could be important things to have later in life. Memories I mean.
