...as time winds down...

I washed my truck Tuesday afternoon for the first time in about two years. Of course, that had my back out of commission yesterday and on the narcotics. I'd be having the time of my life if it wasn't for the pain. My excitement now consists of giving away money and drinkin'. Anyway, the truck looks good. It ought to, it's got less than 11k miles after ten and a half years.

FWIW, John Denver died at 53 in 1997 He died on the afternoon of October 12, 1997, when his light homebuilt aircraft, a Rutan Long-EZ with registration number N555JD, crashed into Monterey Bay near Pacific Grove, California, while making a series of touch-and-go landings at the nearby Monterey Peninsula Airport.

Why would a pilot make a series of touch-and-go landings? Practice? Fun? Testing the aircraft?

I don't remember the details. JD had plenty of hours, the aircraft was a homebuilt/experimental deal. Maybe he was trying to get used to it, I don't really know.

Back in 2013, I was getting ready to get my rotary wing license. I wanted to finish up my Texas Two-Step lessons at the American Legion in Waynedale first.

Did Granny have her own cell phone in 2013?

Ten years ago I was driving trucks cross country. We didn't have much in the way of cell phones, but some drivers used them. ;)

Yeah, she was texting some earth-shattering news to one of her squirts when she killed me.

My first (Half) day in the hospital exhausted the limits of her insurance.

The MDs told my wife I wasn't going to survive, and if I did, I'd be a braindead invalid.

She filed for divorce the next day. I got clipped for $2 million+.

My shitbag lawyer wanted to go after granny's crap $10k house in the Meadow Ghetto in New Haven after five years.

It would've cost me more to tear it down than what it was worth. I never saw the gal, I told Blackburn, "End this now!" after five years or so.

I feel bad about what that gal went through. Fucking accidents happen.

Janice whatshername is probably dead by now, and it's my fucking shitbag lawyer's fault.

FWIW, I got $20,000 dollars. I give more away than that every year.
