Car of the day:
This picture is below is of dying tomato plants. It is hard to see but in the spring every
year this is a garden about 25’x25’ here in the yard. It is at the beginning of our dead end street. We pass it daily. There are cantaloupes,
squash, cucumbers and tomatoes. The garden flourishes. As far as we can tell
not a thing is picked or harvested. It grows beautiful veggies. It is weeded until an area is gone then the grass encroaches. The tomatoes are all that is left. They were big, red and looked delicious, BUT NONE ARE TAKEN. The veggies mature and
rot, the tomatoes mature and fall to the ground, then rot. A few still rotting on the vines.

Walking down the rows Sherry
said, “There is Nick, Lisa’s husband!” (She recognized from pictures on the net.)

run into Lisa. She was off with her daughter getting their nails done.
I thought of Victor when we saw this older English Ford.
Lots of old men
looking to bring back memories.

1950s. We called it shaved, meaning it had no hanging chrome including door,
hood or trunk handles. Each owner had a secret way to open the doors. French head lights and '54 Chevy grill.
I enjoy meeting the proud owners, not all but some did the
