    ......and it's still not real. 15 years of blood, sweat, and tears, happiness, frustration and memories just pulled away from my driveway in exchange for a few pesos. Odd how a guy can feel a sense of loss over a combination of steel, plastic, rubber, and glass.

    It looks like 2007 is gonna be the year of change here at the Unangst house. Stay tuned for more.......... :doah:

    Oh, it's all good Mikey. Nothing bad or ominous.......:thumb:

    It just seems that the last 10 months or so have become the last page of a chapter in the Book of Unangst. Luckily, we're only on Chapter 6 of 12+.

    Nope. I gotta wait until Wednesday for that. You should see the size of my hair right now. I look like a white version of the dude from Kid'n Play......

    I find that the more money I have, the more sentimental I get about whatnots laying around. It's a sign of success that your thoughts are more about the feelings of parting with the K5 and less about the dinero you pocketed.

    Paul I won't lie... the whole first line I thought Kim was leaving and I almost started crying... but the "in exchange for a few pesos" really threw me off... maybe slavery is legal in Canada? No that can't be it... oh yeah! The blazer, right?... well I was happy it wasn't Kim but sad to hear about your loss... :(

    Hmmmmm......

    I never thought of it that way, but it makes perfect sense. Y'know, that's the wisest thing I've read or heard in quite a while. Thanks for your perspective, brother. :bow: :bow:

    When I hovered over the thread title, I saw this ".....and it's still not real. 15 years of blood, sweat, and tears, happiness," and was thinking.. Oh crap! Thinking something happened at home.... I should have known better!

    Paul..

    look at it this way.. at least it went to a good home, right?

    it's tough to say goodbye to things we are attached to. Even though each blazer I get is in better shape than the last, I still miss each one for various reasons.

    Paul, if it makes you feel better to know you're not alone look here.


    We have made these things part of our lives.
