On May 26th Miss-Lou Motor Mafia will be one year old. What started out as a way for me to vent about bad car shows and stuff that goes on in the hobby basically turned into my own little way to express my opinion in sometimes a sarcastic, if not bitter way.
Well things have changed over the course of a year. Me personally, it’s been two job changes, my oldest daughter graduating high school and a different focus on what is important. I quickly learned that life is to short to be pissed off all the time and that I needed to quit sweating the small stuff. I also learned that people are generally good in nature but have there bad moments and it’s all about timing.
I was thinking about shutting down Mafia and possibly going back to my old car club, The River City Bad Boyz. I don’t know if that will happen and I’m ok with that. M3 is special to me because it is uniquely me and for that reason it will go on for another year.
Time is my biggest enemy now. There is never enough time to do what I want or what I planned to do. Plans of starting a M3 commercial website and merchandising are still on hold and I kind of like the fact that it may be indefinitely. I’m no longer making promises or holding myself to what I think I should be versus what I want to be as an author of this blog.
I’m disappointed in the fact I don’t actually write as much as I used to and that I feel I’m cheating my readers, all two of you (the wife and Jordon Morningstar). I can only do what time will allow and I will continue to do short features such as Pinup!, On This Day In Automotive History and the occasional special interest piece.
In short I guess I’m saying I look forward to another year of Miss-Lou Motor Mafia with a totally different mind set. I hope you like it. Look for some changes in our look coming soon as well.
