Colorful sunrise and some reminiscing

This morning was quite frigid, with temps in the high teens resulting in a hard freeze. Today will be cold, period. Mid thirties is the best we can hope for this afternoon.

Pretty sky outside our front door this morning

A nearly perfect contrail cut across the sky

It is hard to believe that it is actually 2022. Sher and I were chatting yesterday how back when we were younger the year 2000 seemed so far in the future that it was hard to imagine. The epic movieΒ  2001: A Space Odyssey came out in 1968, and my did the year 2001 seem impossibly far away. And yet here we are.

Remember when you’d always mess up and write the wrong year on the checks you filled out the first week of January? Heck the only check I write each year is to pay the county property taxes. And then there were roaming charges you had to look out for. For crying out loud, I used to have an eight person party line in the mid seventies! Enough of this, I feel old enough.

Stay safe out there friends. Have a good January!

  1. Beautiful sunrise. I went with my mom to see 2001 a Space Odyssey when it came out. I was 10. It was cool, but made no sense to me. I watched it again in 2001 and it still made no sense, but it was still groovy. I think Hal was all messed up of LSD.

  2. Love the beautiful sunrises. I am afraid I remember many things and many of them I would love to have back again, but someone said, “You can’t go back!” And as much as we would want the “Good old days” back again, we can’t have them. Dammit!

  4. Until the kids on our two-party party line hit their teens on both ends of the party line, we didn’t have a private line. LOL! Incidentally, 2022 is the time in the future Soylent Green became the food of choice. Well, “the food” at least.

  5. Hahaha, I can’t relate 100% to this, but it was refreshing to read such a genuine reflection. Time is flying by and I feel that the older I get, the more weight that term carries. Cheers to you and Sher and wishing you both a wonderful 2022.
