Sepia Saturday- Running boards

The theme this week is "running boards".
I posted this photo last year and wrote about the rumble seat. So here it is again, doing double duty as a "running board" photo.

( I just went back to "Sepia Saturday" and noticed that I remembered it wrong. The theme isn't running boards, it's "bumpers". Boy, do I feel dumb!!! Well, this car does have bumpers. )


I'm not sure who the people are. The woman looks like my Aunt Phyllis and the man behind her looks like her husband, my Uncle Glenn. But it also looks like Glenn's brother, Bob. If it's Uncle Bob....shame on her. But maybe Glenn is taking the picture.

I think the man in the front is Jimmie O'Conner, a friend of my father's.  The only thing I know about him is from a picture of him pointing to the lake with a caption that says, "this is where Jimmie fell in the lake. That photo always made my father laugh.

Ayn Rand, defrocked

The next time one of your "tea bagger" friends quotes Ayn Rand to you here's some ammunition. It's from an excellent article by Herb Crowther.  If you're interested read the whole article here:

"the heroine of the new Republicans was a pacifist who opposed the Vietnam War, a feminist who supported abortion, an adulteress who preached free love, a bohemian who mocked family life and child-bearing, an elitist who sneered at the common man, and, after all her “nanny state” rhetoric, a recipient of Social Security and Medicare and a late, sick convert to the benefits of socialized medicine."

"A passion for the prose and philosophy of Ayn Rand tells us a great deal about an individual, none of it good. There are few surer signs of a poor reader, a poor thinker and an unpleasant person than a well-thumbed copy of Atlas Shrugged or The Fountainhead."

Fair Composite

Robert, from Blue Heron Blast, made this composite from two of my Fair photos. 

I love it!

Thanks, Robert.
(How did you do that?)

Meet me at the fair

The San Diego County Fair at Del Mar.  A few photos.

Some prize winning flowers.



The fun to shoot "fun zone".







The beautiful merry go round.







Bananas seemed to be the most sought after prize from the game booths. Everyone was walking around with one, from small ones to these gigantic ones with dreadlocks.

Lots of wonderful tee shirts.


Girls, too tired to be afraid of the monster over their shoulder.

Etc.
