How long has it been?!!!

Obviously I don't peruse the 'net very much. Thats why I haven't kept up with my blog. Like I have made mention of before, I'm just a regular guy that sometimes gets to do cool shit.

It's been almost a year since my last blog, and my friend scolded me sternly for not blogging like I should. Well, a couple of blog-worthy things have happened since y'all last heard from me.

Keeping with the theme of my blog, "cars and guitars", I bought a new guitar a while back. Its an Ibanez acoustic. Its made out of the most beautiful "ash"wood I have ever seen a guitar made from. And it sounds awesome. I saw it in the store and just had to have it!

I don't usually blog about things in my personal life, but this is definitely blog-worthy. The company I work for sent me to Texas for a big company thing. That was pretty much uneventful. It was the plane ride home where things got really interesting. I boarded the plane and took my seat. Naturally, I had my headphones and lots of music to listen to. My co-workers that got sent with me were in seats around me. One of them was across the aisle from me. He was very nervous about flying. He had taken the gangsta rap out of his CD player, and put in gospel music, and was damn near speaking in tounges. The rest of the fellas and I were just anxious to get back home. I was sitting there trying to decide what to listen to, when two rowdy girls took their seats behind me. Then their friend walked by. I looked at her and our eyes met, I smiled and said "hey" and she did the same. Little did I know at the time that her friend was standing behind me pointing at me, mouthing the words "I'm thinking he can get it!" She took her seat, and we all waited on the plane to take off. I was having a hard time deciding what to listen to. I tried listening to a couple of different CDs, but couldn't get that girl out of my head. So, I turned around and said hey to her again. She smiled a big beautiful smile and said hey back again. The plane took off and we were on our way home. The flight attendants started serving drinks. Then girl I had been flirting with ordered a drink. She asked me if I'd like a sip and I took her up on it. We had passed her drink back and forth a few times, when I suggested that I come back and sit with her. She invited me back to an empty seat beside her, and I went gladly. During conversation, I found out that she and her friends were on their way back from Las Vegas. They were at DFW for a short layover. Lucky me! We talked for awhile, and we felt an instant connection. It was like we had known one another for years. Somewhere over Mississippi, we started kissing. The next thing I knew the plane was landing. Damn tail wind! We exchanged numbers, and, well, eight months later, we're inseparable.

Well, there's your new blog. My friend should be happy now. I'm going to be going to Sebring again this year and I can't wait. I will be blogging about that in March. See you then.
