Day 138

Because of a recent Facebook thread by my niece about Oma’s (my mother) Seven Layer Salad, and because the GF Camera Club is going to Bundi Gardens today to photograph flowers, here is Oma’s version of those fancy race day hats so popular in England and Kentucky at the horse races. I think she pretty much nailed it!

Day 137

A new addition at the Barrow Family Garage & Parking Emporium: a 2008 Ford F150 XLT with the 6 1/2 foot bed! It has a 5.4 liter V-8 that gets the same mileage as the smaller engines but ups the towing capacity over our Pilot by more than 50%.

There are a few dings and scratches, but that is to be expected at almost 140,000 miles!

There is also a Toneau<?> cover for the bed. It is a work in process…I guess the guy selling it as part of a family member’s estate didn’t seem to have the key and took it off to show the truck. He gave me all the parts, but I don’t recall seeing any gas-struts to help lift it. And it is fiberglass that needs some care and paint. It is in the bed.

And it is getting steps or running boards real soon: it is a long way up, and it can be a fast trip down if you forget when getting out!

Day 134

A ten foot section of sidewalk cost about $1200. To be fair, some of those were charges would be the same for a larger job…other than the “small concrete pour” charge or something. Despite being busy he was able to get the job done a day or two after I called him. He had a bigger job lined up, but there weren’t going to be able to finish before it rained. Our’s he could, so we went first!

Day 132

I tried to make a cheap slide copier out of a PVC pipe. It didn’t work well with my Android phone, but the iPhone has possibilities…

Day 131

It was time for Toots’ last concert in 6th Grade…dig that purple clarinet!

The whole class for the singing part. This was a rolling panorama on my iPhone 8.

Day 129

From January 2017. A multiple photo panorama, taken with my Canon 400mm L lens. The deer all conveniently lined up in the very narrow depth of field. Click on it a couple of times to enlarge it, and BACK to return.
