Reflections for a New Year: Regret, hope, and legacy.

| Posted by Harlan

I usually do a lot of editing to my writing. I try to be very clear and very precise about what I say and how I say it. This time around, I didn’t.

We want the abandon but fear the storm. Maybe I’m the only one. I’m going to go out on a limb here and get deeply personal for a moment, if you’ll allow it.

Mecum Auto Auction

| Posted by Harlan

Man…we’re getting bad at this whole “blogging regularly” thing. Well, I’ll spare you the excuses about how we’re so busy and everything. Instead…I’ll just give you some pictures from our little trip to the Mecum Auto Auction a few weeks ago. There’s mostly cars, but a couple of gems in there of Baron with Daddy and with his Papaw. Good times.
