Something new

It's been way too long since I updated this site. I admit I haven't paid much attention to it, I'll try to do better in the future. I'm trying to remember to take my camera out with me more often. Tonight, we had a bike night downtown, and I wandered through. I really miss that atmosphere, sadly I don't know anyone that rides anymore so I don't get to go on rides. I really miss it, so much that I can't even watch Easy Rider anymore, I can't part with it (or my helmet), but I sure can't watch it.
I don't have much commentary for the bikes below, so just enjoy the pics.

 Here's a couple pics of looking down Main Street at the bikes.

 
 And a side street:
 And a few bikes I liked, this one was such a nice shade of purple:
 I liked the matte paint job on this one.
 Here's some sweet flames
 And the nice sparkly blue
 This last one has some great flames, too.
 I think I'm gonna spread these out a little, if I don't it might be another 8 years before I update (I hope not)

I miss this girl:
I really miss that shirt too, I don't know what happened to it. Last time I saw it, I had taken it off in my closet cause I was hot, it's disappeared into the black hole in my closet.

I wouldn't mind a nice long motorcycle ride for my birthday, that would be a nice present.

Labor Day car show

I sure haven't posted anything on here in a long while, but since people still like to look, I've kept it up. For Labor Day, there was a car show on Main Street in my town, so you'll get to see some new pictures. I tried to crop them so you couldn't see the other stuff around them, but you know people walk buy some times.
Personally, I don't give a damn about what's under the hood and would love to just ogle at the car itselt, but they always have to show the engine. I'm not sure what all these are, if you know, please let me know in the comments.
Enjoy!
 My old favorite: a corvette
 Chevelle, I believe, pretty ugly color though
 Challenger? But in a beautiful green of the 70's, there was a new challenger, but I'm not particularly fond of those, especially when I get to choose between old and new
 Ok, maybe this is the Challenger, I don't know. I think one's a Challenger and one's a 'Cuda, but I don't know. I did the day I took the pictures, cause I could look at them up close.
 Mustang
 ????
Oldsmobile

A few new cars

Last weekend, my parents and I went up to Lake Okoboji. We caught the very end of a car show. Here are 2 of my favs. A Chevy Chevelle SS.
And a Plymouth Roadrunner

I also spied this Cadillac DeVille parked in the condo parking lot.

Some new ones

These were taken from a Labor Day car show downtown last Sept. Not sure what year, but a really nice Mustang with extra powerful motor
I wanna say it's a Chevy pickup, but I have no idea, I loved the paint job and the cover on the bed.
Another old truck, not at the car show, but parked in the grocery store I passed on the way to the car show.

Dedicated to those who serve








The American Revolution
The War of 1812
The Mexican-American War
The Civil War
The Spanish-American War
World War I
World War II
The Korean War
The Vietnam War
Desert Storm
Operation Enduring Freedom
Iraqi Freedom

Soldiers have fought and are fighting around the world for us to be free to think, say, do, believe what ever we want, however we want.

Memorial Day is a day to remember all the people who fought for our freedom from 1792 until now. Please take a moment sometime in your day and think of them, thank them for what they have done and are doing for us.

I know lots of people are all excited because they get a 3-day weekend, time to grill outside and get together because you get the day off from work and get to hang out with your family. I'd think some time in this 3 day weekend you could think about those soldiers who are fighting for your freedom, attend your city's Memorial Day parade/ceremony, go to your local cemetary and find the veteran's graves, go to your local veteran's memorial, or even just stop a moment and say a silent thank you. Do something to remember them.

It never fails

The days I think about taking my camera with me, but decide against it, I see some of the sweetest/strangest looking cars. Like this one:
1970 Chevelle SS. It pulled up next to me as I was getting ready to cross the street. Could've used a little body work, there were some rusty spots, but otherwise it was a gorgeous car.
And this: Apparently it's a 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood. The one I saw was more of a bluer shade of this green. I saw it at a light and was thinking it was sitting rather low on its front tire, that's when it began to bob. Then it bobbed up (bouncing, not quite sure how to describe it, but I'm sure you've seen these types of cars before) and down a couple times, and drove off. I laughed.
I also saw my neighbor driving one of his classic cars, naturally I have no idea what it is, and when I found a picture, I wasn't able to copy it and upload it here, so you all could help me out. I'll keep looking though.

VOTE!!

Please go out and vote today. We've been hearing about this election for over a year, there's no way you didn't know it was coming. I don't care who you vote for, just vote. The only people I don't want voting (this may come back and bite me in the ass), are the people who are only voting for someone because they are black, because they look better than the other candidate, because you're parents are voting for that candidate. If you're going to vote, make sure you have done research on the person you're voting for, make sure some of their ideals and platforms match up with your beliefs. DO NOT vote for someone because you flipped a coin and they were heads. DO the research.
