Last nite during Happy Hour thejeepjunkie mentioned to TheGoodAttorney and this olelongrooffan that he needs to resupply that 5 gallon bucket full of baseballs. I asked what happened to all the ones he had. "Well, johnjohn, it has been five years since the Kid played ball and every time one of the local kids needed a baseball, my supply diminished by a couple every time they came by."
Cool one jeepjunkie.
So, anyway, he mentioned that the next time one of us goes to WallyWorld, pick me up a couple dozen and I'll reimburse you.
Well, in an effort to try and have a life, this olelongrooffan decided get out and about instead of soaking up my life on these tubes. So as I was driving around, this olelongrooffan found himself in front of a WallyWorld and I headed on in to pick up those much desired baseballs.
On the way back to the Taj Mahal, I decided to treat myself to a couple of those fifty-nine cent tacos over at Taco Bell.
This olelongrooffan pulled my oleragtop into the parking lot and I sighted my What I Saw Today subject.
A 1930 Model A pickup street rod.
Now, if you have Counting Along With Me, you will remember the other Model A pickup I saw a couple weeks ago.
The other one is in alot different condition than this rod is.
I had originally planned on doing a drive by of this place and head back Beachside but, as this place was not crowded at all, I decided to eat inside that chain restaurant.
I got inside, looked around and spotted the lone guy who I figured to be the owner, ordered up those tacos and a glass of water and head over to a table near that dude.
Of course, I struck up a conversation with the guy who is the owner.
But first, I have to share this with you. The owner of this truck and the owner of the other Model A live about two blocks apart over on Ridgewood Avenue, just around the corner from TheGoodAttorney's home and I see this truck parked in his driveway every time I go by his house.
Anyway, as I struck up a conversation with him, I mentioned it was ironic those two lived so close together. He agreed and thought that was interesting when he brought his truck home after acquiring it a few years ago.
I asked him what the motor in it was and he replied a 350.
He was just finishing up and told me he enjoyed talking with me and asked me which truck I liked better. I mentioned each of them was equally desirable.
He laughs, mentions I should be a politician and then says, "Yeah, but mine goes faster!" We both start laughing and he heads on out while I finished eating that rare not home cooked meal.
Later, once this olelongrooffan was Beachside on Granada Boulevard, a van in front of me turned off the street and I spotted a Celebrate Life magnet on the rear of this new Beetle.
Yeah, Counters, these days it doesn't take a lot of things to allow this olelongrooffan to
