(A) Starts with the Letter "N":  National starts with the letter "N".  I always think of our National Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner when I think of that word.
I also think of National DaysOctober 30th is National Candy Corn Day, it comes one day before Halloween.  So does my Birthday.    I always buy a bag of Candy Corn, again this year I already have it.  October 30th is also my birthday, it started as a joking sentence, that for my Birthday I would run away.  Most times if I do, all times so far, Mrs. Jim and perhaps other relatives run with me. 
Some I have blogged about, I remember best the year I ran to New York City when our younger daughter ran the New York City Marathon.  Mrs. Jim and I followed her to six locations on that run using the city subways.
A toy 1934 Ford Coupe
(B) "Number" (Tom's Choice):  Number 88 is my favorite Number, it is the Number we used for our race car, a "modified stock"** 1934  Coupe painted baby blue.   Read more about the pictured toy car and of our race car here, .

(C) A Favorite:   I like watching Car chases on TV when nobody gets hurt and the crook is caught and cuffed.  I didn't see the end of this one as our Houston Astro baseball came on (they won the game and the wild place in our division.) 

In the picture the white car on the left is being pursued by Houston police cars.  Those have white doors.  The are followed by or Texas state Patrol in the SUV's with the white hoods..  It was surmised that a woman was driving as she wasn't speeding and signaled all her lane changes.

(D) Reflections:  Backwater cruising during our January 16 stop at Cochin, India.  We spent the morning on a houseboat larger than this one, it had an upstairs outside deck, then disembarked after lunch.

Bonus Questions:    

1.  What kind of action do you prefer on TV?  In addition to the chase scenes I like "Dancing with the Stars" shown on Monday nights.

2.  What is your favorite "N" word?   I like "No" because I don't have much Negative in my life.  Saying it adds some excitement going against the grain.
