Quick Update and Cruisers XVII – The Details Part VIII

Quick Update

Some have noticed my blogging output has dropped off. That is an unfortunate byproduct of us upending our lives by selling our house and planning to move. At this time, I don’t want to say any more about it other than I’m busy. Swamped, even.

That means fewer posts and fewer — and often, quick — visits to blogs to which I subscribe. I try and look at all new posts, but I occasionally miss a bunch if a few days go by and the number of posts I need to read exceeds my allotted time to read them.   

Sorry about that. And, sorry also for warning the current situation will probably last at least through June. The month of May will likely see even less of me dipping my toes into online social interactions.  

A random joke I found funny:

brain muzzles

This next one also set off my funny bone :

piano movers

Herman had hit a lull a few years back. So bad a lull that I almost stopped reading it. I’m happy to say the strip has been pretty good of late. 

And now, I go on to cruisers details.


Cruisers Update XVII – The Details Part VIII

Continuing with my late reporting of the June 14, 2015, Tri-Lakes Vintage Car show.

Not sure how much clever banter I’ll include below as it’s late and I want to read a bit before hitting the sack (this post is scheduled to go live in the morning). What am I reading, you ask? Well, I’m re-reading my 2013 NaNoWriMo effort. In case it’s not clear, I like it. A bit of editing, and I might send it out into the harsh path of publishing submissions. Not until after June, of course. 

I’m not identifying the various car makes and models these macros belong to because, as I’ve oft asserted and repeated, I ain’t no car guy. That said, one can perhaps determine the car associated with the macros below by reading previous posts or going to the SmugMug gallery and looking at the photos of cars, matching them to the macros. 

BUT . . . it gets worse. There is no chance anyone will guess this next one:



Can’t tell? Perhaps if it’s in B&W . . . 


OK, OK . . . let me show you some engine parts . . . 



There is a SmugMug Gallery (HERE) for this, past, and future posts about this show. Also, you can click on the photos to open a larger version of the photo in a separate tab or window. Go ahead; try it.

By the way, the SmugMug gallery associated with these posts now has a total of 486 photos . . . and I’m not done yet. 

Anyway, back to the mystery car . . . How’s this for yet another hint?


Come on! . . . you got to know by now!

I mean, once I give you this next one, you’ll know it for sure. 



Here’s the dash of this mystery car.


I have to admit to liking dials and knobs and analog clocks. Today’s cars look like cheap digital clocks in comparison. 

I also mentioned before I was and still am partial to a trio of round taillights . . . 


I’m going to give you three photos of parts of the same car. If you want to identify it, perhaps perusing the SmugMug gallery might help. 




This next emblem is kind of self-identifying . . . 



I think this is the hood release . . . 



Whenever I see something yellow, I’m reminded of an old joke . . . 

“What do you think of Red China?”

“Looks good on a yellow tablecloth.”

Anyway, here’s the B&W conversion of that last shot


That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    That’s okay, you have a lot going on, and we understand. Once things settle down a bit, it will be great to hear how things are going, ….hope everything works out just as you hope it will.

      Thanks, Sandra.

      I’m sure that a year from now we’ll look back at this and marvel at all we accomplished . . . or curse our stupidity for not just staying put and enjoying life.

      Either way, an adventure it will be, and truth be told, I kind of like the challenge.

    I admit I’m stymied with the ID’s this time, although Corvette is certainly in there. Just can’t place the parts. It’s late, been a busy weekend, and thats MY excuse! M :-)


  3. Of those cars…you know I love Corvettes and spotted the Corvette! Perfect color, too!
    Oh, I can’t even imagine how VERY swamped you are right now! Focus on your tasks at hand. We’ll be here when you get back to blogging more normally. Yes, we’re gonna’ sit right here and not leave until you get back! ;-) :-P
    And can’t wait to hear all the details of the swampedness adventures!
    Love the piano movers! I snort-laughed! :-P
    Wish you well-HUGS!!! :-)
