Most people on their weekend days off relax by reading a book, go to the movies, play golf, tennis, or load up the fam for a couple of days of fun in the sun. Anything that is not work related.
What does a dedicated editor of the World's Leading Truck Publication do on his weekend off? On early Saturday mornings when I am in town I religously cruise over to Adams Donuts that is conveniently only a block away. The "Donut Shop" is home of the Donut Derelicts which has been hosting it's weekly pre-dawn cruise of about 200 custom rides for the past 20+ years. After an hour of old guy bonding it was time to roll with some of my buds to Mels Diner for some grub. After a full belly, it was time to cruise over to the shop and meet a couple other buddies that are helping me finish a cool project for my wife. It is supposed to be finished and unveiled on Labor Day weekend. Its "Crunch Time".
On Sunday I left my house at 5:30 a.m. and was walking through the Pomona Swap Meet gate by 6:20 a.m.. After covering about 10-miles in search of some unique treasures for my many projects in progress, I was ready to surrender. On the way home I stopped at the Enderle Center 10th Annual Classic Car/Truck Show in Tustin, CA. A local mall that opened it's parking lot to play host to some three hundred custom cars and trucks, all of the proceeds go to the local Boys & Girls Club.
I finally rolled into my driveway about 1:00 p.m. just in time to take my wife out to lunch. We rolled up Pacific Coast Highway in our '59 Bel Air and dined at the West Bay Cafe on PCH in close by Sunset Beach. As we were cruising home under clear blue skies and the Pacific surf rolling onto the sandy beaches we both commented, "This Is Why We Live Here"!
Just Livin' A Dream!
