From Flowers to Ferrari...Hey Guys....

My friend, Donald, from college just bought a (red) Ferrari. You can see the very powerful motor through the rear window. It is every guys' dream...the Ferrari...I think. He's had it for about 1 month now and said that people a constantly taking pictures of his car, while driving, with their cellphones! This is a big deal, this car, so how could I possibly pass up the opportunity to take my own pictures of Donald and then little me, standing with this dream of an automobile. Yes, I did go for a spin it it. Donald said that going 125 feels like 70. The great thing, the poignant thing to me, the really nice thing for me, is that when we were in college, Donald had a blue VW bug, which, on many a freezing upstate New York winter morning, that little bug wouldn't turn over. I think that Donald has permanent key marks on his fingers from 'willing' the engine to've come a long way baby!

All...I'm catching up on my comment replies. This is in response to the comment you left following my second Arte y Pico Award!

Hey Tricia, it's my pleasure....Yeah, we definitely must go rafting sometime. When can you get away from your blogging? I'm a trip leader now, I can take you down the river.

Sheila--Thank you very much. Trust me, you are doing all of that. Yeah, every once in a while it's necessary to mix it up a bit. Fortunately, "meanderings" are such an integral part of my blog. ;)

Mariuca, you completly rock! You're too kind and so very generous!

Jennifer, my pleasure. Any time you need help with anything, just give me a shout.

Amy--Who was it that said "and good will towards men?" I don't think it was Tiny Tim.

Suzette thanks for both the congrats and for the well wishes in the BotB...I couldn't buy a win right now.

Buddy--I just adore dogs. Read my post under "Classic MTMD": Year of the Dog: Remembering Buffy, Mookie, and Duke.

Cheers everyone!

All...I'm catching up on my comment replies. This is in response to the comment you left on Almost Wordless Wednesday: Norway Maple Trees.

Mrs. Mecomber--Thank you very much. Aww, shucks. You know what they say about a boy and his tree--without one a boy and his dog don't have anything to use to relieve themselves on....Once again, "they" said it. I don't know who "they" are. ;)

Amy--Yeah, at a Jewish philosophy study session not too many years ago, we were all sitting at the table with the rabbi discussing I-thou relationships, and I kind of mentioned the tree. Suddenly it became very quiet and everyone just stared at me. I said "What?" completely innocently. "A tree is one of God's creations, right? It needs to be cared for too." One of my friends then said: "Matt, you need help." And I said "That's right. No one makes it through life alone..." It got pretty interesting after that, let me tell you. ;)

Bonnie--Thank you so much. Give your Norway about 7 or 8 years with great watering and it will soon become the most magnificent tree in your yard.

Daisy--Like I said to you before, just come on up to the Mountains of North Carolina in late October. It's spectacular, and a doable drive. My father makes it from Venice in one day. Not bad for a man of 76.

Jnez--That's very kind. Maples, to me, are truly amazing. "My" tree had leaves about 18 inches wide last fall. That's one pretty darn big maple leaf, let me tell you.
