PICTURE THIS, TAKE TWO

Yeah, wrong time of the year for tulips, but that notwithstanding, I really love that picture. I took that many moons ago, up in the wilds of Northern Illinois.

Photography is my knock-out thing…there’s something about freezing a moment in time, capturing a fleeting image in the onrush of our conscious reality, literally stopping time (and therefore totally screwing up Einstein’s E=mc2 thingie) to which I am so, so drawn.

Comments are welcome, as long as they agree with mine…this is no democracy, folks, sorry. (Kidding…see the name of the blog.)

**************************************************************************************************

Now I don’t want to sound cynical, but how the hell do you do THAT much damage with a car with a top speed of what? 19-1/2 MPH? I mean, did you get a good running start? Geez.

“No, Gilda, you cannot drive…you left your license in your other coat, remember?”

Well, a couple of things occurred to me upon first viewing this pic. A) that’s a great looking car; b) and I REALLY like the boots both these ladies are wearing; c) one can only hope for their sake that the photographer forced them to wear those unfortunate hats. Yark.

100 bucks says they’re watching “The Flying Nun”…

I have no idea what kind of car this is (and if anyone can tell me, I would be eternally grateful, and might even throw in a case of beer, you know, for the effort) but tell you one thing…it is absolutely gorgeous.

My Mom: “Do you think he’d be pissed if we shipped him to Atlanta?”

My Dad: “We don’t know anyone in Atlanta…”

My Mom: “Yeah…”

You know, if I were this dude, I’d be a little worried about what had happened to the first seven guys…

The resemblance to my ex-wife is uncanny…

I’d take my car in for a weekly tune-up if I could find a repair shop with mechanics that looked like this…

Try WD-40…

Whoa, serious “aawww”  moment…Mary Pickford and friends, from the 1921 movie, “Through the Back Door”. (If they had added a cat, they would have had a fourth for bridge.)

Well, loyal mates, that’s about much frivolity as I can stand for one evening, I am so out of here…thanks for joining me.

Okay, one last thing…if you’ve had or are having a stressful day, a shitty day, a fucked up day, then try this…click on the link below, and then sit back and listen to a very pretty, and very relaxing, tune by Chet Atkins called “Sunrise”…beautiful.

…or if you would rather…

Happy tomorrow, mateys.

Love and Photoshop,

Post Script…THE L.A. DODGERS TOOK A COMMANDING 2-0 LEAD IN THE NLCS OVER THE HATED CHICAGO CUBS LAST NIGHT WITH A 4-1 VICTORY, WHICH CAME ABOUT WHEN 3B JUSTIN TURNER CRACKED A THREE RUN WALK-OFF HOMER IN THE BOTTOM OF THE NINTH TO BREAK A 1-1 TIE.

FUCKIN’ A.

                                                   !!!! GO DODGERS !!!!

  1. Hey John,
    I had some help from the internet to find out that the car you were wondering about was from a French car manufacturing company, named Delahaye. That one in the picture I believe, or google believes more-like, is a 1935 Delahaye 135. It’s a luxurious tourer but was also popular for racing.

    • Thank you, Crispey Person…yeah, Google had an answer for me in .85 seconds, which if I hadn’t been so lazy, I could done before I asked everyone. Anyway, thanks for the heads-up…pretty sumbitch, isn’t it? Best to Mom.
