It gets lonely when you have no one to share your happy news.

After 4 years in storage ... finally ... my trike will be home this week.

I'll be out on 3 wheels alone most of the time.

How long will it take for a letter to be returned due to lack of postage?

The last thing I saw as I dropped the letter in the mailbox was my return address sticker but no postage stamp.

Legal Marijuana In NY Would Do More Good Than Harm, State Says


Health Commissioner Howard Zucker said last month that the report would back legalization.

Marijuana is legal for recreational use in nine states, and several political figures have gotten behind legalization — including Cynthia Nixon, Cuomo's Democratic primary opponent in this year's gubernatorial race.

With a potential value of up to $3.5 billion, New York would be one of the nation's largest regulated marijuana markets if the drug were legalized here, the report says. It estimates taxes on marijuana could generate as much as $677.7 million in revenue in the first year.

Wish me luck on my new portable AC.

Haier 14,000 BTU Cool and Heat Portable Air Conditioner with 110 pt. Per Day Moisture Removal in Dehumidification Mode

Last summer the central air decided it had worked long enough.
It was over 30 years old when the compressor blew it's cool for the last time.

Gotta keep the hot air out and the cool sweet smelling air in.

About In_The_Wind

Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. ~~~~~~~~~ For, it ends in the blink of an eye. Carpe Diem (Seize the day)!
