beauty is fleeting

december sunset december sunset

i took a few quick digi shots of the sky whilst on the phone and then ran inside and threaded a colour roll in my good camera only to find that in a mere matter of minutes the sky had faded to a dull "insignificicant" purple and i'd missed my chance to capture this well.

got neo back today. the guys at prairie 66 are AWESOME. they did a good job and are honest and amiable. it was even slightly cheaper than originally quoted. and who says thieves don't leave good gifts...$-chain? wolf blanket?

it still smells and there is a load of crap in there. i cleaned out the trash, but there's still loads of random things in the trunk that i'm not quite sure what to do with. anyone want tow rope or an extra set of jumper cables?

if all goes well (or at least slightly better than the norm of late) then, monday, i should be able to get my plates. until then, plateless neo is parked in my driveway and i will be walking for a few more days. and driving with a screwdriver hopefully for not too much longer.

thanks again to all who have been of comfort in this time. and i dearly hope none of you have to experience any of this for yourselves!


  1. I'd like to put my name on the list for wolf blanket.

  2. was it I you were talking to whilst taking photos? if not, i think it was I that gave you the idea of the bitchin' sunset. ;)

  3. yes, donna, it was you on the phone and it was you who gave me the idea. yay for donna.

    and sarah - i also have a grey hoodie you can put your name in the hat for.

  4. i wish donna wouldn't cuss so much on the blog. oh. i guess thieves aren't very tidy.

  5. kerry, what the f!@#'s the BEEP BEEP BEEEEEP...oh...i mean, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! :)

  6. dude, i'll take the jumper cables and tow rope off your hands. any other cool automotive gear? does it make you feel any better to stick it to the thieves by giving away all their junk?

  7. they're yours mike. hope they're actually worthwhile. :)
