Not to sound like some kind of a nut or even like I am crazy. You have to admit that your vehicle somehow becomes part of your family. We buy a vehicle and we take out loans for 5 or more years we know this object will be there to get us where we need to go. Maybe you traded a car that you used to take your wife to the hospital to deliver your first child? Then you used it to take that child to their first county fair or other event in your area. It feels weird to me because we traded our truck for a car. My wife reminded me that I have not owned a car for almost 20 years, I have been a truck man. The real truth is that we didn’t use the truck to haul stuff any more and it was mainly used to drive back and forth to work. So looking at the economics of the whole thing it makes sense to have a car and save gas not to mention the added expense that a truck brings. So in the end I know it was the right decision and we know that vehicles are inanimate objects anyway. Just remember when you trade your car or truck in you are also handing over years of memories.
Today we took a ride to visit a local winery store that was recently put into a local shopping plaza. At first I thought from where this store is located that the prices would be out of our range. We were pleased to learn that the prices were on track with many other wineries that we have visited from Virginia to Pa.
This is a quick pic I grabbed while in the store.
Well at least for public school. This is the final school cloths shopping for my senior. This is I guess what you would call bitter sweet. If you children are still growing spend a lot of time with them. Now that mine is getting ready to enter her last year in school and has her eyes set on Air Force Nursing she will trade in her old faded jeans for some blue uniforms.
What ever she does in the future I will be proud of her. Just as I am with my son and other girls. I wanted to share this picture I grabbed while looking for cloths in a local store.
We lasted through a powerful thunder storm this evening. It has been a very wet summer with the ground being over saturated. Sometimes after a storm you get lucky enough to grab a picture. I was getting ready for dinner and looked out the window and this is what I saw.
My wife and the girls visited the bakery today. They could not wait to call me after leaving the bakery and getting into the car. They walked right in NO LINES! Next after getting there I guess the Cake Boss’s mom was coming out to get some air. This is cool in many ways if you are a fan of a show and you get to grab a picture with one of the people on the show.
We went a year ago to Vegas and didn’t have a chance to see and of the Pawn Guys?
Here is the picture that the had taken from someone coming into the store that could not hold the camera steady.
I know this is going to sound kind of funny; but waking to the Mountains seems to feel like the air is fresher and somehow cleaner. It feels like nature has a way of cleansing her self.
All of those years watching Walton’s Mountain and hearing the narrator talking about waking up in the mountains just somehow hits home now that I have experienced it for my self. I did however watch the ground closely while shooting some pictures this morning in fear of rattel snakes.
This is a shot that I grabbed from behind our road side Inn. I will be shooting more today as we make our way to the museum.
I was working at looking at how the new CS7 will install. It looks like a normal install but you have to install it over the internet.
This is a monthly subscription fee to use this new version.
More to come later.
I worked for a few hours tonight to bring my Flickr photos over to this site. You will now find the Flickr Photos tab on the top menus. I guess I will be using Flickr even more now.
There have been a lot of times when I wanted to take a photo walk in the city. We finally had time to go and make a day of it. Had a great time with my son and daughter.
We have been working hard trying to get all of our Macs online. My partner is one of the best!
