I’ve spent the last two days painting a house in Saratoga Springs. I’m pretty much a ninja with a sprayer now. After a hard day of work it’s nice to take my son for a ride in the Corvette. I don’t even have to drive fast. Just a leisurely drive, knowing I can light it up at any time. My car rules.

I thought of this quote today on the way to work:
If you make a habit of taking shortcuts you will eventually get cut short.
Last Wednesday I obtained a two-tone gray 1978 25th anniversary Corvette T-top. When I was about 17 I had a goal to get a Corvette by the time I was 35. Someone close to me insisted that I work it out since I am 35. With their help I did. I have to have the exhaust system overhauled, but it is so much fun to drive. I took the top off on Thursday and Friday. T-tops rule. This will be my Summer car since rearwheel drive Corvettes don’t do well in the snow. Some people have motorcycles or snowmobiles. I now have a Corvette. My kids love to ride in it. They love it when I pick them up from school.
The Corvette actually goes along with my BID list, or Before I Die list. I started making a list of things I want to do before I die. I don’t want to get to the end of my life, look back and regret not doing certain things. I don’t want to see a life of working too much, enjoying life too little or not spending enough time with my family. I think that is the reason I’m looking forward to spring and summer so much this year. I want to do a lot of mountain bike riding, martial arts training, and spending time with my family and “core” friends. You know who you are.
