Day #145 – Mustangs

I heard her whisper as I turned the corner.  “I can see it in your eyes.  You want me to take you for a ride.”  And there she stood . . . my first love.  Oh so many years older, but still sleek and lookin’ fine.  It took me back to that first time. I was just eighteen when I first saw her at a distance. April 17th, 1964.  Dressed in powder blue with her white top down just to give me a thrill.   I figured right then, I’d never be able to hold her, to feel her power beneath me, but I was wrong.  My friends called her the regular man’s corvette.  She featured a base 170-cubic inch six-cylinder...

Day #131 – Harley’s

Distinctive in its sound, Harley Davidson motorcycles invoke a sacred passion in those who love them.   With the feel of the wind whipping through your hair and the sensation of being close to nature, it gives you the freedom of flying without leaving the ground.  That awesome rumble as you rev up the motor, the touch of your special someone cuddled up next to you on the back of the bike, the satisfaction of knowing you can maneuver your way around obstacles with an ease the ordinary human being cannot fully fathom.  Those who have never ridden a Harley will never truly understand. ~J.K....

Day #121 – ’57 Chevy

Peggy was a classic and powerful beauty, meticulously maintained to the perfection of her former glory. Long since the days when he cranked up the radio and belted out ‘Peggy Sue’ to her, she remained his steadfast companion, proving to be reliable and trustworthy.  Smitten with her the minute he laid eyes on her sleek, shiny chrome hood rockets, his passion deepened further once he drove her supercharged engine built for performance. Carefree and blissful, he escorted her around town whenever he could, showing her off with pride and taking pleasure in being the envy of all his friends. Now,...

Day #116 – Your Last Dollar

It is said, “The Love of Money is the Root of All Evil” but the lack of a few dollars might have killed a child. The snow, which had been falling all night, had stopped, but you would never know it by the way the Boston winds were blowing the new layer around. That morning as I stepped off the Green Line Trolley into the face of the minus two wind chill factor, the reminder of just how cold it was imbedded itself on my face immediately. It was four days till payday, and even though I only had a five dollar bill in my wallet to last me till then, a hot cup of coffee became an absolute...

Day #112 – Hanukiah

The menorah (also known as the hanukiah) is one of the most recognizable symbols of the Jewish faith.  Every year, sometime between late November to late December, the Jewish people celebrate Hanukkah.  They remember the re-dedication of the Temple after it was wrested from the control of oppressors some 2,300 years ago.  The oil lamp was lit in the Temple but there was only enough pure ritual oil to last for one night.  A miracle occurred in which the flame burned for eight days, until the new oil arrived.  The menorah has places for eight candles, each one representing the miracle of that...
