May the good Lord be with you …

Iced tea, popular throughout the U.S.

I was leading the way late Monday afternoon in a two-pickup-truck convoy to a landfill with a soft brown couch filling up most of the bed of my truck, drinking some cold iced tea out of a big cup on a hot summer day after loading up the two vehicles and heading out while helping a good friend move away.

The big United Van Lines moving truck was gone, on its way to Florida.  This was all that was left, things to be tossed out.

My radio was tuned to a favorite classic rock station.  A song or two into the drive, a tune came on that just seemed to fit a “natural playlist” that fit the mood perfectly, with my friend and his family all moving clear across the country.

The tune was written for the songwriter’s children, but it could fit people of many different ages given the same circumstances, asking the question, “What’s a good way to say farewell … for now?”

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
