Here’s another photo of a cute young skater, for your viewing pleasure. How do I know he’s a skater? By the shoes he is wearing. They are designed specifically for skateboarding, with thick soles.
I got some simple housework done around here after I posted this afternoon. Then I sat on my back screened porch and read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil for an hour.
Now I am freshly showered and feeling relaxed. It’s a beautiful early evening, here on the island–72 degrees, sunny and still. I just opened a beer and I am looking forward to a relaxed and quiet evening, enjoying a simple, home-cooked meal and watching Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, a very funny film. And Matthew Broderick was so cute when he made it.
I have known many skateboarders throughout my life, neighborhood guys and friends of my sons. People misunderstand skaters, they think skaters are smelly and rude and not-too-bright, which is terribly inaccurate. Most skaters I have known are bright, respectful and practice god hygiene. And they are nice people, too.
Also, skateboarding requires a lot of practice and self-discipline if a guy wants to get good at the sport. It’s not easy to master. So, give skaters the respect they are due, okay?
It’s been a runaround day for me. I had to Uber to the garage to pick up my car after it was repaired (power steering leak). I got a haircut, visited a Greek market, and then came home. By the time I ate lunch and got everything settled at home, the time was three PM.
I won’t have time for exercise today, it’s too late and I am kind of tired. I’ll do a bit of reading after I write these words, and then I will open a beer. I don’t have a damned thing planned for this evening, just dining on a simple meal I will prepare, and watching a Netflix rental.
All right, everyone, It’s time to get busy with some light housework. Have a nice Tuesday, wherever you might be. And keep on smiling, it’s important. 🙂
