I did go to bed early. And slept.Until Star Trek came on. It looked bad for the crew of Enterprise until somebody saved their bacon. Sorry I can’t be more specific. I do know Ted Cassidy (Lurch from The Addams Family ) was in it. I’m just not that big a trekkie.

So I am awake again. I found a travel film of Rio de Janeiro from 1938 on You Tube. There is plenty to hold my interest here. Plus it is in colour. Sadly the film is shorter than I would have liked it to have been. Another Rio travel film came on Carnival In Rio (1955), narrated by the voice of the 1950’s, Art Gilmore. I have seen it before, I’m back to watching Ashland on Virtual Railfan LLC.

J mentioned driving to Williamsburg later today after we go to 8:30 Mass. Somehow I don’t think that will happen now. She went to college there, at The College of William and Mary. So she is attached to the city. I like it too.

There is a sadness that surfaces in these late night bouts of wakefulness. Somehow I think I can trade in my current situation for another, happier one (with sex) as if my life situation was like an automobile. Crazy. It’s like I could be teleported into that different, better situation. How I just worked Star Trek back into this ramble amazed and pleased me. Therefore I’m going back to bed.
