G8 of H8

Gate at the entrance of an access road that leads down to one of the boat yards in the neighborhood.

Nice day here - went out for a walk with the team. Something is a little off in this photo.

Too much camera gets you the stink eye.

Not only do the shoes go on the hands, the sunglasses are worn upside down. Ruler.

Ring leader, chief commander, backup photographer, and wifester.

Less Plastic

It'd be neat if newer cars had some metal in their interiors. Maybe some weirdo material on the seats too.

Wait, a lot of new cars do have weirdo material on the seats now. No metal though, just plastic. I wish the retro design thing would end and people who like old things could live their lives knowing that what they love isn't being bastardized "with a twist" by some "modern" designer who can't come up with something original of his or her own.

Really though, none of it matters, right? My old Custom 500 that the kid I sold it to nearly destroyed immediately. Note super cool leave the headlights on for picture move. Ugh.

Time for it to go

Went out and took some pictures of the old Studebaker yesterday. Time for it to go to a new home.

I had high hopes for the old thing, but I'm trying to simplify and am selling most of my projects. I'd rather spend the time with the family.

One happy running old Harley, one Harley project, and that's it. Less is more, more or less. Oh, and don't park there, OK?

'40 Mercury

Clean one from over the summer at Billetproof NW, a car show thinger. The car was on a poker run we went on too, which was cool. Always good to see folks driving 'em.

In the name of beauty

Respect the corset and the corset will respect you. Disrespect the corset and you'll end up like the lovely lady above.

Ah, the things people do and have done in the name of beauty.

Fall in Seattle

We see a lot of this in Seattle this time of year - Gray. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn't rain constantly here. We also don't set around and listen to Nirvana 24 hrs. a day drinking overpriced coffee. Well, at least my family doesn't.

Big guy just wrapped up his final soccer game and had his end of year party. I have no reservations about admitting that Logan's soccer games were the highlights of my past couple months. Watching those little kids play & enjoy themselves without a care about the economy, their jobs, old motorcycles, etc. was pure and perfect. Such a good reminder of what's really important. Really hippy shit, I know.

Other than a couple family members, a few friends, and my Mom's restaurant, there aren't many things I miss about the east coast. I do miss the changing of the leaves, with their bright colors and I miss the crispness in the fall air that causes those bright colors. For reasons I'm unclear of, our leaves out here were quite vibrant this year. The tree above is in our backyard and there were lots of them with similar colors around the 'hood. It was nice.
