TWTW May 3rd through the 9th: A Bird Poops On Me And I Listen To Rain

I got up Sunday and decided to go for a bike ride along the Canal. I had to pump up the tires on my bike. It had been so long since I had ridden it that they had gone completely flat. I think I had ridden it from before the pandemic started so over a year. It was a pleasant if cool ride. I only went about 8 miles total. At one point I scared a bird and it flew away. It also pooped right in the middle of my pants.

That night it started to rain about bedtime. I love listening to the rain, so even though it was cold I cracked the window by my bed so I could hear the rain. It rained all night long. Some light thunder woke me up and I heard the comforting rain and rolled over and fell back asleep. I awoke around five and had to pee. The rain lulled me back sleep. I woke up about seven, time to get up, but that soothing rain was still going on, so I went back to sleep.

After I woke up from the rain, I went to Mom’s for Mothers day. Brought her flowers and made her breakfast.

TWTW 22nd through the 28th: A Journey That Began Summer 2007

I Get a big nocturnal visitor

A Long Journey Ends

A long journey began in the summer of 2007. It began with the words “My name is Michael Weston, and I used to be a spy.”

For several years I caught every episode of Burn Notice I could get. But I never did watch the final season. I am not sure why. Maybe I never wanted the show to end. The whole series is available on Amazon prime so I started once again from episode. It felt like traveling back in time. Motorola Razors( the old ones) were cool cutting edge technology. I surprised myself with how many episodes and even individual lines I remembered. I finally watched the whole thing.

I didn’t enjoy the final season nearly as much as the earlier episodes. Many people will point out that the final season lost it’s Michael helps a person of the week format. That’s not the big difference in my opinion. I went back and watched the very first episode and it was pure fun. Everything was done with a wink and a smirk. The final season was just dark and angsty . It had lost its fun.
