I have heard about Christmas in July many times but just never gave it any thought. Then yesterday morning I actually thought that Santa had come and dropped off my present here in July or just did so a few months early to make sure he had time to make all his rounds. He is getting older you know. Either way I was really excited. You see it is like this. I walked outside and this is what I saw:
Then I realized that my Son had asked me one time if he could park his Harley up here at my house when he was away since he was having trouble with intruders and he had other stuff in the storage shed and the bike wouldn’t fit in there at this time. Of course I said OK.
I thought that I heard a motorcycle when I was writing my blog yesterday morning but didn’t give it much thought since my son usually rides one to work. So I didn’t even look up at the monitor for my security cameras but just kept on typing away on my laptop. It just so happened that where he parked it was right between the field of view of two of my cameras. So later when I walked outside I saw the bike. Nah, I didn’t believe that Santa had brought it for me, especially since there were no keys in the ignition; dang it!! I then slightly adjusted the one camera so that I could keep an eye on it.
I unloaded the mower that I bought the other day and took it out of the box and got it all assembled, put oil in it, and was going to gas it up when I read where you are supposed to use unleaded fuel only. Where the heck do you get unleaded fuel? Years ago when I lived up in Pennsylvania Amaco had white gas as their premium. So I just dumped some of the gas I had in the can into it (it looked almost white-grin) and it ran. Where do you get “white” gasoline here in Texas? After I got it together and all the fluids in it, I fired it up. It started on the first pull and it was then that I realized I had bought a self-propelled model. I didn’t want a self-propelled model but I guess it will be OK. I got the dog’s yard cut and then it started to look like rain and my wife said that I should cover our Son’s bike and the new mower. I told her that rain would not hurt either the bike or the mower, but guess what? Yep, they are covered with a tarp, both of them. Now you all have a great day and I hope Santa brings you a nice surprise, you hear?
