“Sometimes questions are more important than answers.” ~Nancy Willard, quoted in The Meaning of Life, compiled by Hugh S. Moorhead
The following inquires have been made on many occasions here at Red Van Ramblings. Such important questions certainly deserve to be answered…..
If you have to “replace” Big Red:
A: Will you get another red van?
And B: Will you change the name of your blog?
After very minimal thought, the answers, respectively, are:
A: I surely do hope so! I love the color red; it makes me feel snazzy. And frankly, it makes it real easy to spot your vehicle in a parking lot. But, you can’t always get what you want, as my friend Mick Jagger once said. So we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. But if we try sometimes, we just might find, we just might fiiiiiiiiind, we get what we need. Oh yeah.
And B: I can’t imagine changing the name of my blog, y’all!! It was a momentary (and I DO mean momentary) flash of, dare I say?, brilliance. And so, in the future–red van or no red van–I think the name has to stay. Don’t y’all? I might have to do some sort of permanent homage to Big Red or something, just to make sense of the title to any newcomers that might stumble through, though.
I feel we are teetering dangerously close to the edge of making this very earth shattering decision. Hopefully we can delay it as long as Dr. Gene will help us delay it and as long as we aren’t going to the poorhouse in doing so. I believe as my bloggee friend, Toni, does…you gotta drive ’em into the ground!! And that is what we plan to do.
Now that the burning questions on everyone’s minds have been answered, I know we’ll all sleep better tonight.
