NEW PICTURES ON THE CAFE WALL
There is a little bit of everything included in this week's gallery. The Henry J (not this one) is the first car I remember from my childhood and somewhere (lost in time) my folks had a picture of me and my brother sitting on the hood of our Henry at my grandpa's farm in Iowa holding huge corncobs with cheap Indian souvenir feathers on our head.
The 3-D marigolds are here at our building. I rescued them from the K-Mart dumpster and they have grown like they came from an expensive nursery. With a little photo shop work the flowers stand out real nice if you stare at them. Watch out for the 3-D effect
The boats are from Monterey Bay. The ocean pics are from the Thunder Bay area and most of the other photos are California except the night shots from downtown Chicago. More Chicago photos will be posted later
The roses were mine. The desert hill was a place called the Devil's Punchbowl north of my California home. The girls in the tree were friends of mine from back home.
I have a few Ohio pictures but it is hard to find the majestic beauty from the wild west.
There are hundreds more to put on the computer and if you think they look good or bad, wait until you see them enlarged. I will be glad to send anyone a larger copy if asked.
And yes, there is a new story on the way. Speed bumps along the way have slowed me down.
