Florida or bust… And we left! Sort of.

Posted on Posted in Being Human, Florida or Bust..., you've got to be kidding me

The sun finally set, and we packed and packed, and I even had all of my carry-on bag buttoned up and ready to go on the kitchen table – helped as much as I could getting everything in its proper place before we left into the darkness. The RV is a loud and angry beast of a machine. It rumbles and bounces a bit, and everything that can rattle, does.  The creaks and moans seem to be everywhere, and the turn signal makes a beeping sound that is either like a great alarm clock, or that final 10 seconds of […]

Florida or Bust… Periscoping!

Posted on Posted in Being Human, Florida or Bust..., you've got to be kidding me

Ok…  It’s almost time, and I’ve really got to start packing soon, because my dad is threatening to leave me here. If you want to watch some of the chaos happen, go to your Apple App Store, or your Google App Store, and download Periscope to your phone. Create an account, and then search for me: @syoungld And then it might ask if you would like to be notified when I am broadcasting, DO IT!  Then you will know everything about the trip, and well, you won’t miss out on anything. Any questions?  I didn’t think so.

On the road…. Florida or bust.

So.  I was duped. Conned. Swindled. They said to me…  Do you have to work right after Christmas? No, not really.  I mean, I’d like to be back before New Years, but that’s all. Great.  Then you are coming with us. And that’s how it happened. I had somehow agreed to travel with my mom, my dad, my sister, her husband, and even little dog Ande from Indiana down to Sarasota in a 36 foot long RV.  There is a bed in the back, on top of the loudest part of the RV and then a bathroom with toilet and […]

Fire off in the distance!

Posted on Posted in cool pics, you've got to be kidding me

And not really that far off into the distance, actually. The first of the brush fires of 2015 happened yesterday. Seems like it started at the 5 freeway, and grew to nearly 45 acres before being doused for good. This happened very close to my office, and choked off the main roadway that connects Los Angeles and well, everything north of Los Angeles. Last night, we all took alternate curving routes to avoid the area, but this morning I was able to drive by and see the charred remains. It started RIGHT AT the freeway, and extended down the crevasses […]

Rainy evening in Los Angeles

I really really hate rain

Posted on Posted in Being Human, you've got to be kidding me

It’s the day of the Oscars, and its been raining like mad all day today.  There are a few homeless people gathered under the eaves of the “for lease” building next to my apartment loudly chatting it up in the rain.  At least they seem happy.  I don’t, at all. I’ve never really liked rain, but I tolerated it in Indiana, where the summer rains are warm and gentle, and even the raucous thunderstorms have that sunshiney green glow that makes everything so very entertaining. Here, it’s cold, biting and miserable. Any moment rain falls from the sky, I instantly feel like […]
