The End For Now
As Scooter Sunday comes to an end for 2008, it brings some sadness, as there are times when I wished I lived in a warmer climate and be able to ride year round. But reality slaps me in the face and I realize we get a good 6 months of winter here in Utah. Oh, we have some nice days here and there, but “nice” in the winter is anything above 45 degrees during the day. Still not exactly scooter friendly, considering the roads are pretty icy most of the time. If all things go as planned, Scooter Sunday should be back sometime in late March.
Since last Sunday, the weather turned pretty cold. We had some warm weather, but it was a lot less than we’ve seen in previous weeks. I still need to winterize the scooter, but I’m putting it off, thinking we’ll get one more day in the 60’s… one more quick ride before I unplug the battery and cover up the scooter in a nice warm blanket. I know… fat chance, but wishful thinking on my part.
So what am I doing for the winter? Hibernating like a bear and snacking on my ration of Mother’s Circus Animal cookies? Not exactly [although I do have a hidden bag somewhere]. Be patient, people. I will reveal all next week.
Bye bye, Scooter Sunday….you will be missed!
Best Zeppelin song ever….
hilly – I know, it’s sad, but it’s just for the winter.
kris – I agree. This song fit so well, plus it was used at the end of one of my favorite movies of all time “Almost Famous”, not to mention it’s such a well put-together song. “The Rain Song” is a very close second in my Led Zep favorite list.
The Rain song is also very good, I think my second favorite is either Darlene or The Lemon Song… or going to California.. or…. there are too many…
A very heartfelt episode. Awesome song choice!
kris – Lemon Song is another great tune (and from Led Zeppelin III). You are right, there are too many to list.
xisor – Thank you, Tim. Much appreciated.
Lemon Song is Led Zeppelin II I think… One fruit song per album is their limit I think…
kris – Doh! Led Zep II… you are right.
Geez, I was actually getting a little weepy. And is that all the security you give your friend??? You leave the door partially ajar and unlocked??? Some buddy you are. 😉
I can’t help but feel sad! I hope you go visit him in his little shed during the winter 🙂
kapgar – You know, even watching it multiple times myself, I get a little weepy at the end there. As for security, you got my word on a return in the spring. Plus, I didn’t forget the dare you, Beth and Xisor (Tim) mentioned a few weeks back (stay tuned).
kilax – Oh, I visit him often during the winter months. Mostly to keep the battery charged up, but taking different measures this winter.
*mops up tears*
*blows nose again*
*pulls self up by bootstraps*
*makes expression of stoic resolve*
*drums up some patience*
catherine – love your play-by-play emotions and actions while watching the video.
*takes a bow*
My dream job is to be the person who picks the music for tv shows/movies. It seems like you’d be pretty good at it too because you always choose the perfect music.
catherine – well deserved.
tori – That would be a cool job and one that I probably would like. Thank you for the kind words I’ve always been a lover of music and making these videos has been a way to use that. Let’s see if I can keep it up with my winter segments.
I, for one, will miss Scooter Sunday. Can’t wait until next year when it awakens from its winter nap
kevin – I’m hoping the winter nap won’t be too long this year. Previous winters have been pretty harsh here and lasted longer than needed. Normally, the end of March is showing some shift towards warmer temps.
Scooter Sunday Videos are like Monk and Psyche. It seems the new seasons take forever to come around and they end too soon.
delmer – LOL… so true. For 2009, there will be a full season of Scooter Sunday Captured episodes.
