…long weekend at the cottage

17.0703 ToB pickin' up my laundry VI

I am told that summer time is about long weekends at the cottage.  Being a winter guy I have never quite been sold on that.  However as it is the Canada Day long weekend and our 150th birthday the girls managed to convince me to head to cottage country.

Now you would figure that this would be a relaxing weekend, no stress, no worries. Please!  The girls worked on their tans, had a few cocktails and messed with the boys.  I drove, picked up the supplies, blew the dust outa the cottage and played cook and waiter.

Of course the cherry on the cake, Sunday morning, look what I found on the edge of the dock….some days I just shake my head

…train to nowhere

16.0122 ToB - pickin' up my laundry III

Every so often i get a little stir crazy and the need to just go is almost over whelming.  Sometimes it simply means throwing a bag in the truck and just heading off…but lately i have been a little more nostalgic.  Might be my age, I don’t know, but the idea of a train trip seems to be pulling on me.  Something soothing about watching the world go by with the muted clickity-click of the wheels on the rails as the soundtrack.  There are things you will never see unless you ride the rails a little…undisturbed country side..the darker side of towns and cities…old warehouses and grain silos long forgotten…the beauty in an old one stop train station.

Yeah…laughin’…the nostalgia is running pretty thick today.  But i can still remember the day when the sound of a train brought a little excitement to small rural town and the thought of escape for those looking for something different.   Somethings never change, no mater where you are.

16.0111ToB - pickin' up my laundry II (rev2)

It is the beginin’ of the month and time for TMD.  Now remember TMD is for the boys, so it has always been a 1 click TP in, grab the demos, wander a bit and head for the pose stand.   Not this time.  I click my LM…”region is currently full, try again in a few minutes”…huh?  I try again….same thing.  I look at the map and see 18 million green dots….seriously..this is my event…wtf!  Oops… sorry… language.

Anyway, after some stomping and pouting I eventually got there.  I had seen a preview of a new Cold Ash sweater that was being released at TMD for January and actually thought it was  sorta of cool…not exactly being a sweater and shirt guy.  It reminded me of a picture I had seen of James Dean back in the day.  Not sure if it was from East of Eden or Giant, regardless, it got me thinking…50’s movie poster…technicolour…now there might be a picture here.

15.1017 wandering [blog 7]

I don’t remember when or even how it started but over the years i have done most of my wandering early in the morning.  Particularly when I am traveling.  Nothing quite like wandering through a new place before the hustle and bustle of the day starts.  Catching the smells. sounds and sights of everything.

This is no different in SL.  I tend to do my wandering first thing in the morning.  whether it is shopping, a new event opening or simply touring about a sim I haven’t been to before.  Old habits I guess.

…wandering into town

16.0109 ToB - pickin' up my laundry I

We have all seen him, well maybe in movies…the silent stranger…the brooding tough guy…  He looks like he just walked thru 50 miles of bad road.  It seems every girl wants to save him and most guys just wanna avoid him.  You wonder what he is thinking?  The answer…where can a guy get a decent breakfast in this town?

Ok, ya figure me out.  Yes, I watched a Marlon Brando movie last night and am having flashbacks.   Hey, if ya can’t live it in SL, where can ya?
