My daily entry from my "A Year In Photos" websitenote, updated every day when I'm around. Each day's picture usually does not get updated until later in the evening, though it may be updated at anytime during the day. And there may be an alternate picture which you may need to scroll down to see.

Click on the picture to see it full-size; click the underlined links in the narrative to see related pictures.

If a picture seems to be out of place (the picture doesn't match the text), refresh the page to make sure yesterday's picture is replaced by today's.

Tuesday, September 27 - Today is my birthday, and though we usually don't make a big deal out of our birthdays anymore, I got a free birthday cookie from Casey's, so we did make a big deal out of it. And besides, Mei-O made me 長壽麵 (long life noodles), a Chinese birthday tradition. So, happy birthday to me (and may there be many more)!


Monday, September 26 - Yesterday, I noticed my Z4 was just about to turn 40,000 miles. Driving it today, it had totally slipped my mind, but as we exited Highway 14 coming home from Steve and Teresa's house, I just happened to glance down at it and, much to my surprise, it was right at 40,000! So, of course, I pulled off onto the shoulder to take this picture to document this significant event in the life of my Z4. I bought the car on November 17, 2016, with 30,668 miles on it. It took almost six years to get to 40,000. (Remember, in Minnesota, there's a somewhat limited sports car driving season.)
