Still haven't driven the Boss since early March........I know I can slide in it but getting out may pose a problem with my bum knee.Going to my primary (substitute Rookie Doc) Fri....My Reg Doc I've had for over 35yrs is out on Med Leave.........This sounds like a setup for .........you fill in the blank........I need a handicap sticker just to get to the freakin docs visits!!!!!!!!!!!!..pardon my french, but my frustration is starting to shine thru.....on a brighter note, My Boys are spending the nite thru Saturday with me and grandma. Son is Best man at His Best Friend's wedding and is treating Him to a Bachelor party in Houston, Tx this long weekend........They're paying Son TOO much money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Too bad Mr Miyagi is no longer around. He could have worked his magic with you.😁
 
I woke up this A.M. in a better mood than when I went to sleep last nite.Woke up with the Boys greeting me, along with some bright sunshine.Some ominous clouds are moving in now, but can't dampen my spirit.........Son sent me this before He left for Houston this morning..........just in time, I haven't heard it in yrs..
 
Beautiful day today!!!!!!!!!!!!.....Plenty of sunshine........ Temp 76....dew point settling down to the low 50's from the high 60's yesterday.....This is setting the stage for "I gotta get in that Boss TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!....The Doc gave me a cortisone shot in the knee Friday.....I don't know how long the benefits of that will last, so Tomorrow is the day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.........Man I am due!!!!!!!!!
 
Praise the Lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...getting in and out of the Boss wasn't as bad as i thought it would be............what I enjoyed in between was magical!!!!!!!!....I almost forgot how sweet (mean) that Boss can sound!!!!!!!!!!!!.....I'm back boys..........this ends the mission....I'm BACK..
Glad you're back in the Boss!!! I instantly thought of that song when you first posted this AM! Great minds think alike 😀

So have you gotten down the road a couple of times by now, as even a short drive is sweet after surgery on knees, ankles , hips , etc.

I am amazed at how crazy it is that all your fun, wacky, philosophical, nutty, musical, and downright confusing ( haha ) posts are approaching 275,000 views. Yes, Bob, it won't be long any you will have 300,000 views on your Tons of Posts, so your own little way your mellow meanderings have brought a little light and humor into the lives of many. Sure plenty of the stuff is darn near non sensical, but the beauty of that is we all share your little quips and wonder what our Mustang Maniac friend is thinking each day. You are a pleasant pause in a World where too many folks worry about the little things that honestly have no real effect on their personal lives and a brief respite with ole 302Bob makes one sit back and laugh, question or simply stop and relax. Keep up the good work , my friend and in your own way you have touched many lives in so many ways.

300,000 views is not that far away ---------unreal!
 
Thanks Bill.............I just call "em as I see "em and the rest just falls into place............most of the time............... Hon took me down to the DMV today to get my handicap tag. Going to the DMV is by appointment only these days, so even tho I had the form from the Doc 5/24, today was the first open appt date. I wonder how many other Bosses have a handicap tag hanging from the rear view mirror?

Dragoon makes me feel better about my new handicap tag....I bet a lot of people would think twice about seeing a bright orange Boss 302 parked in a handicap spot......To all those folks......limp hobble.whatever a few steps in my shoes and then climb aboard...............I rather not need this handicap tag than have to use it.........trust me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One last thought about some stuff right now.........I'm a lot older than when I bought my Boss with my allocation back in 2011....older, and happier, not very much wiser,......Boss ownership is a blessing!!!!!!!!!!!!!...I'm not the same person I was in 2011, but at least I can still enjoy driving the Boss...........just remember Boys.......The good times don't last forever...............not words of doom by any means just words to the wise................................................................

You and me both brother !! On my bad days, glad I have it but on the good days, I’m parking in the back forty !!
 
I haven't ventured out on my own yet ( the Boss ride don't count) and to tell you all the truth........I'M SCARED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....getting around the house with all my toys keeps me safe and secure, but the real world is a whole other story.My first adventure will be to get gas in the Boss...........Son must have not noticed the gauge was near EMPTY!!!!!!!!!! I'll use my cane for that mission......BTW, I got a 4 wheel walker from Walmart to replace the wheelchair I was using on the main level (living room/kitchen).......The Boys will like that...They hated grandpa trying to run over them with that chair.........

Just remember that socks only in the house are like bald tires !!
My couple times out in the beginning were co-piloted with my paddock queen, just to be sure. That first solo outing, yeah, can be nerve racking but your muscle memory will kick in and away you go !!
 
Beautiful Saturday here in Ct. for Son's best friends wedding.......sun wall to wall!!!!!!!!!!!!...dew points low 50's...chance of rain none, chance of fun 100%....This wedding day is almost a carbon copy of mine long ago........both being held outside!!!!!!!!!!!...........Me and Hon wish Ralph a glorious and happy new life with his new bride...........Amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Hey, What does my previous post have to do with Racin, or Mustangs or whatever.............It deals with life.........yours, your kids, your wife.....they are all a part of your life...enjoy everything my boys, but cherish what is most dear to you......................The heart don't lie, but The heart will cry......................mine has, more than once.............
