See what happens? An old Plymouth.  Sixty-six years later, more or less, but she was quite likely tired, out of gas, and worn out 50 years ago. Tired old stuff, with the right care, TLC  and good fortune, suddenly becomes valuable.  Beautiful. Imagine that. Candy Apple Red yet –and probably worth ten times the original price. Is there a message to be considered here?  Let’s take a ride, baby. It’s called life. This beauty was photographed in Thunder Bay Ontario. Antique cars by the dozens. Old cars, happy old owners delighted with life, happy to be alive and revived, restored and adored. Life the way it should be. See what happens?

Life can be staid, stolid and  boring as you allow it to be. High-button boots, whitewall tires and all. Banker’s hours and dull. A new, meticulously detailed life, but old is old.

More Exciting?

Perhaps you think life should be brighter, more exciting.  On the move. Be a genuine hot rod. C’mon, baby. Roll the dice. Start’er up. Pedal to the metal.  Life can come with color-and fire.

How far will you go? Pick up where you left off.  Haul stuff while you’re at it. Go far.  Fargo. Bring your tools. You’ll need them.  Get up and get moving. Watch out, world. Life is what you make it.

Don’t want to bother with life?  Spend time just hanging around playing mindless games?   It’s always a choice, but see what happens?

Life’s a choice. Think about it. Choose well.


Is that Incoming I hear?

    I wish someone would shine me up and give me a new engine…

  3. Good analogy here, Raymond. Mindless games… life is too short for them! They really aren’t as much fun as Monopoly anyways…
