It’s the second day of 2023 and it has been raining all day in Southern California. As a matter of fact, it had been raining since New Year’s Eve.
Generally, it had been an uneventful for most of the day. Even though it is officially a day off, I spent a few hours at the office cleaning up and sorting out recyclables off my desk. I used a heat gun to remove shipping labels off packages, and setting aside boxes that can be reused.
It was raining on New Year’s Eve as I drove home. I arrived home about two minutes to midnight. The neighborhood was west and dark. As the clock strikes midnight, I heard noises from outside my car. Suddenly people were out on the street, in the rain, cheering for the new year.
I exited my car and immediately greeted by a neighbor, handed me a cooking lid and a large spoon. Sounds of pots and pans can be heard along the new year’s cheer.
We were all somewhat dancing in the rain and wished each others well for the year to come.
We did not need a fancy party In-N-Out neighborhood, just good neighbors.
I’m excited about Metallica upcoming tour, but my bank account disagrees. I had to earn my “Snake Pit” pass instead of throwing a bunch of money to get one.
New song, new album, and World Tour… Metallica is sure to sell out the tickets. As much as having Metallica as one of my all time favorites, I would have to choose between attending the shows in style or use the money for some luxuries such as food for the whole month or three.
