Machine Dreams: Grilles








Shiny grilles, rusty grilles, tractor grilles, car grilles...

(Whoops, now that I look at it, the ultra-cool yellow thing isn't a grille, I don't think...)

Machine Dreams: Red Orange Yellow








In October, as 2014's Fun Fall Outing, we went to the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum in Vista.

Oh yeah! Tons of cool old gas engines sputtering and sparking, rust (which y'all know I love), the smell of gasoline fumes wafting through the air, lots of old guys in overalls...fantastic (no, really, we loved it!). And there was a really good band performing. Fun fun fun.

I'll be posting about it all week; it was hard to find a way to divide up the pix, so for today I've chosen color. Enjoy!

Tallulah-Palooza Friday







Tallulah Mae. She rolls. She wiggles. She turns her ear inside out. She is un fou chienne. Je vous aime, Mlle. Tallulah Mae!

This Week in Jaw-Dropping Technicolor



These three were taken on Sunday...


And these three were taken this evening.

I shall never ever grow tired of it: when you stand and look and everything, including you, is bathed in this glow...ahhhhh...

P.S. These are unaltered--no PhotoShop here!

Carby Goodness

There is very little more satisfying on a chilly day than a baked potato with salt, pepper, and (light) sour cream. Yum to the yum!

(That is a vintage German tea towel underneath it, BTW...)

Winter Rose

Time to prune the roses back...this sweet bloom was way up at the top of the bush, waving in the breeze...
