The Best Of My Best. Enjoy!

Hi-Dee-Ho, folks! :wave:

It's getting to be the Dog Days of summer--those days that are long and hot and all a body wants to do is lay in the shade and do nothing! :iconvacationplz::relax::iconvacationplz:  It hasn't been all that summery here.  It's been kind of mild with only a couple really hot days.  We had quite a bit of rain this spring so I imagine the seasons are a bit screwed up.  As long as it doesn't dump 4 feet of snow on us in October again, I'll be O.K. with that :thumbsup: 

I wanted to thank everyone who sent their sympathies on the passing of my cat, Zen. I sure do appreciate it. :thanks: She sure was a good cat and she lived a good long life for a cat. She could have lived a little longer but I think she knew in her heart that those extra years would have been painful--not only to her, but to my wife and I too. She checked out on her own terms and her own time. I think that's about the coolest thing ever--none of us will have that choice, I don't think :no: I sure do miss her though.:(

On to other things. I've been fighting a severe depression since back in March. I think it has to do with the cool, rainy summer we've had here this year. This depression isn't the 'I'm going to jump off a high rise building' type of depression. It's just lethargic misery. I'm starting to come out of it though and that's a good thing. I'll probably feel just ducky about the time winter sets in along with the Seasonal Affected Disorder. :rofl: Great, eh?

There's good things on the horizon like a visit from some good friends very soon to look forward to :eager: and finally getting my garage "shop" cleaned out and somewhat functional. I've got some things in mind I want to build though I ain't much of a woodworker. I can guarantee they will be sturdy though as I always tend to overbuild things :D

On the job front, it's busy. It's always busy this time of year though. The company is bringing in 5 brand spankin' new trucks to the terminal I work for and I was offered one of them but I turned it down. Ol' Blue is still a good truck and I like her a lot and I don't care for the new ones all that much. I may do a photo shoot with one of them someday soon but that's about as much as I want to do with them. :icondivaplz:

I been seeing quite a bit of really cool stuff on DA while I been lurking--faving and running :D--and I thought I'd show you all some of what I have in my favorites folders. At the very bottom is a sure to check it out. ENJOY! :popcorn:

I live in Western South Dakota with my wife (a Minnesota transplant, but I don't hold that against her :XD: ) and 2 cats, Pouncer and Zen. I'm a truck driver, writer, photographer and appreciator of all kinds of art.
