STILL NO CAR SHOWS
It's been six weeks since my last car event and I want to confess, my withdrawals have been minimal. I have always lived, worked, and breathed cars but now I don't feel guilty by doing the things that I have been wanting or needing to do outside of the car world.
After cleaning out the garage, I took advantage of the nice weather by pulling weeds, laying bahia grass seed, propagating flowers from friends, and cleaning overgrown palms from my new property. My new hammock even got used for afternoon naps. I've learned how to use a pole saw, chainsaw, and a wood chipper. I've enjoyed the sounds of birds and bathed in the quiet breeze of the countryside right here in central Florida.
I've noticed sidewalks being used that never had anyone on them. People are sitting on their porches enjoying the fresh air. And I've seen people slow down and relax.
Two things that I really and truly miss:
1) The greetings that I receive at the car shows plus the hugs and hand waves by everyone.
2) The social atmosphere with friends that only a restaurant can provide, not to mention the great food that I cannot make at home (even though I try).
Sure, I can drive the cars around but it isn't nearly as enjoyable without the 2 reasons above. That is what I miss most.
The car shows wouldn't be as successful without the local car show photographers who are always looking to capture the perfect shot. They work during & after the shows perfecting their art.
