SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO—-When Life Gives You Lemons—-Thursday, August 2, 2018

The smoke from all the fires…fires in Utah, two on the Uncompahgre Plateau (which you can’t see right now because of the smoke), the one at Crawford, over at Rifle, three at Meeker, one in Parachute…

Terry said…”Let’s go for a ride!”

Who could turn THAT down? Not me!

Off we went…traveling here and there, then home again.

Later that evening…much later.Β  The smoke thinned somewhat and I saw MARS!
Running in to get my camera I was delighted to actually have a photo of that stunning red planet!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Sounds like it was time for a break…..

    Little GTO, you’re really lookin’ fine
    Three deuces and a four-speed and a 389
    Listen to her tachin’ up now, listen to her why-ee-eye-ine
    C’mon and turn it on, wind it up, blow it out GTO….

    Nice ride, Terry! We’ll just have to follow you in the pickup, now that we sold the SL :-/


  2. We just looked at Mars through Jim’s telescope the other night! You got a great picture of it! He would enjoy your old car…his baby right now is a 1974 MGB convertible. He loves to go out for a ride in the evening, just for fun.


  3. The US bushfires are very much on the news here in Australia.
    You’ll be pleased to know as I type this 100 firefighters in the various
    divisions of that profession – aerial etc etc have just lifted off from Sydney
    Airport on QF11 ( a Airbus A380-800) for LAX and then will be deployed in
    the States of Washington, Oregon and Idaho to assist in your catastrophes.

    Here in my state of NSW the drought is all the news – 98% of this state – the size
    of Colorado is drought affected. The response to monetary appeals for the farming
    fraternity is wonderful. What one sees on the TV is heart wrenching – so sad.

    Clever photo of the Red Planet – well done.
