A Memory

Wow, over a month since I last posted. Each day I say "Oh, I'll get a post up today." Then the day passes and it doesn't happen. Next thing you know over a month has gone by. That's kind of how it is with me losing weight;  "Oh, I'll start my diet tomorrow!" Tomorrow comes and then I say the same thing over again. And so it goes!

I just love these barns with the nice quilt patterns on them. There are lots of them around and I think they sure do brighten things up. In the top photo it had just came a rain shower and was still sprinkling and not the best photo. Harder to see the log cabin quilt pattern on the top but you should be able to click on them and enlarge the photos.

I was thinking today about  a car my brother had when he was a young man. He bought a new 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner. His was green...kind of  a grassy green color. He sure loved that car and it was pretty. I drove it a few times but we lived way back in the country and when you met another car you had to get over to pass and he'd have a fit if a tree limb or the weeds raked against it. No, I was never allowed to drive it without  him being along! I did love the Roadrunner beep-beep horn it had. I remember my Dad was riding with him and when they were at a stop light, Dad warned him not to take off too fast. When the light changed to green my brother took off so fast that it threw my Dad's cap off his head and into the back seat!! I was thinking about that today and couldn't help but laugh.  This photo below I found online. I don't have any photos of my brother's car.
