the years EVE

Again, today started out at the Chiropractor, and will continue this way for a while I would suppose. The picture you see before was not taken by the nurse this time. It was taken by me. I was laying down with my hoodie on, and yea that is what it is in case it looks confusing. The machine in the back ground is the thing hooked up to the pads on my back that heat me and make my muscles spasm.So, then the day really began when I made a little trip to the local firework store. This happened after I stopped by Nicky's house to make for sure positive that he was down for our road trip. Of course he was, so off I went to....The one, the only (in Fort Wayne), PHANTOM FIREWORKS!!!! Yes, that's right ladies and gentlemen, the firework store. This is where I got some serious explosives that would be secretly placed in the trunk of my car until I was ready to reveal them to my unknowing passenger.I looked at my bag of boom boom material, then I thought about the evening coming up, then back at my bag, and a big smile overcame my face just thinking about how Nicky would react when I sprung it on him. Then it was time to go..........Well, the new Mikey (Christ filled) took over. I was locked out of my car, and I felt really stupid. But instead of being angry and displaying "old Mikey" characteristics, I calmly called my pop's and he came and helped me out.

Well, then I drove back to Nick's and we played a little bit of [VIDEO GAMES], and then left on our adventure. We drove and drove, and mostly headed East because we wanted to get the HECK out of Indiana. LOL. Here is a live action driving shot of yours truly. Yes, this is a G.I. Joe helmet, and YES, I did wear it the hole night, even when I stopped for directions and went in the gas station to use the restroom and the truckers looked at me like I was some kind of AliEN. So, we drove and drove and talked and talked and ended up in Van Wert. Probably only 45-50 minutes from Fort Wayne, but it probably took us 2.5-3 hours because we were just lost in the country side. Nick and I came to the conclusion that Fort Wayne is not so bad compared to much of what we saw in Ohio. THEN I FOUND THE SPOT!!! It was time and I told Nick to grab the flashlight and put on his coat. We proceeded to the trunk of my car, and he he he, I got out the bird feeder. Ya see, I put all the fireworks in the card board box that my dad's x-mas bird feeder came in. I told Nick that I wanted to set it up and maybe some birds would come and we could watch them and talk for New Year's. Nick's eyes got kind of big, and I asked him to help me set it up. MUCH TO HIS SURPRISE, there was no bird feeder, BUT FIREWORKS!!! This is what happened next.... It was so much fun. I couldn't have had a better New Year's!

from some one who lives in van vert, ohio so sorry you didnt enjoy your visit, but trust me...those of us who live in these peaceful, don't have to lock your door areas wouldn't trade you for your slum ridden and crime ridden fort wayne for our area either.. we may not be as EXCITING as the big city of fort wayne but we get by just fine thank you. and by the way we boast of many churches of several denominations who all support or community in many ways, as boring as we may be..thanks for passing through
