[Dream] Build a Marquee Sign

And the sign says, “Long hair freaky people need not apply” So I put my hair under my hat and I went in to ask him, why? -Tesla

Well, my sign won’t be so elaborate. I’m thinking like a flashing OPEN sign for starts. Made with LEDs, probably made with big holiday bulbs, too. I keep seeing cool marquee signs and try to figure out what one to make. I think an OPEN sign for Country Fixins will be a good start. I kept thinking I’d have to cut it out of wood, but it appears at the craft store they have paper mache letters already made. Just a quick hack job, do the wiring and mount them.
Or maybe it’ll say “Come Eat” or “Eat Now” or. . . .

[Dream] Write a Book

“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” ― Louis L’Amour
You’d never guess it by looking at me, but, I’m a closet Louis L’Amour fan. I was one of those little boys that wore cowboy boots everywhere. In shorts, in my underwear, just everywhere. Our library had booksales in the basement. Fill a bag for a buck. You’d get one of those brown paper grocery bags and go to town. There’d be piles of random books donated from estates, movers and the like. One time there was 4 rum boxes full of these cowboy books. I didn’t know who Louis was then. I bought a bag full and soon found out.
I’m often told I should write a book or movie. I’m a natural raconteur. Stories flow, often funny, often awkward. I’ve got a couple concepts. But, as Louis says, I need to put pen to paper. Some research will need to be done, so I get the basics of storytelling correct. If I do it, may as well go in with a clue. Maybe, do one of those “Novel in 30 Days” programs. Doing this blog will be a step in the “write” direction. Better get on it.
Time to let those stories shine.

[Dream] Learn a Foreign Language

Dos Carne Asada & El Grande Coca Cola!

Well, I’d like to build on that simple food order. I’m pretty sure Spanish will be the language of choice, although I do order Chinese more. I’ve never really had the need to know anything besides English. Even when I lived in Phoenix I tried to learn a little Spanish since I was around Spanish speakers often, but it was totally not necessary. I’ll use Duolingo, mostly since it’s pretty hot right now. Plus, with the interwebz it’s easy to learn via  Skype with someone learning English. You can practice speaking their native tongue with them and help their English out in the meantime.
