This and That

I usually do posts about This and That in Paris but, since I have a few photos that are unconnected to each other, here we go, only in the States.

When I caught an Uber for the ride to the airport for a plane to Texas, this was my driver. He was a very nice man and the hair, hat, and turquoise bracelet interested me. I usually have interesting conversations with Uber drivers. A lot of them are retired and either wanting to keep busy or needing the extra cash. This Willie Nelson lookalike had a disabled wife at home, was working for extra income and didn’t drive on week-ends because he didn’t want to drive drunks. Several drivers have told me about really drunk people, usually college girls, who use Uber which could be dangerous it seems to me. At least they aren’t driving. I have a grandson in college who has started being an Uber driver just a few hours a week and making a decent income. He doesn’t do nights either because he doesn’t want anyone to throw up in his car. One driver told me he once went to pick up a hamburger at Mcdonalds for delivery. Seems a bit lazy to me. The world is changing. Sometimes I feel really old.

I’m still walking everyday. I find myself awake at 4 am most mornings for some reason and I think, “What the heck, might as well get out and walk” which I do. I skip walking in the sun when I do this and it’s actually cool and I get to see sunrises. Clouds add so much to a sunrise or sunset. Of course, by 8 or so, I have been up for hours and by noon, I need a nap. I don’t know how all of this will work when Maurice arrives but he will probably have jet lag anyway so we can get out together.

I was walking the other day and a light from a nearby building was shining through the trees and it made this pattern on the ground which looked liked trees themselves. Somehow I noticed this.
