Gett'in Out



Saturday was a beautiful, sunny day so we drove down to Mesquite to a car show and chili cook-off.  Sounds  like something right down our alley doesn't it?  It was quite fun looking at all the old cars that have been renewed.  Some are quite amazing.  The one above caught my eye.  Did you notice the blender attached to the front left side?  I guess they can mix a drink while driving along.


Brian liked this old l936 Ford.  He said his Uncle Vern had the same car that they drove down to the field every day.  However, it didn't look like this one.


We saw some very snazzy paint jobs.  This one caught my eye.


How would you like to take this one out for a Sunday drive?


I took a picture of this 1957 Chevy because when I was in high school we drove this exact same car.  It is still a pretty-good looking car.  I know I was pretty excited about it back then.


We walked over to the chili cook-off competition.  This place had already sold out of their chili, and it was only 1:00.  It was pretty crowded so I only stopped at a few of the clili booths.  It was 61 degrees there in Mesquite so it was a good way to spend a few hours.

I love looking at the old cars you and dad used to have, very cool. It's always fun to go and do something that you normally wouldn't. (sorry for the run on sentence)

It's warmer here today as well, but raining. Oh well, i'll welcome the warmer weather regardless.

I'm not sure the cars would appeal to me, but I do like going out to community events and doing something different. Looks like you had a lovely day for it.

As I am typing, snow is swirling past the window; it seems unreal that you were wandering around in the sunshine a couple of days ago! What I really want to know: custard or milkshake? ;)
