First Day of School Antics

 Tyson doesn't really look ready for school at 6:30am, but he was.  Carrying on with a long tradition of dogs checking out the first day of school photos, Rex assumes Rosco's old position in the little window in the background.
 Breaking with the doggy-in-the-window tradition, Rex came outside to sit with Eli while he closed his eyes for our photos.
We actually took Eli inside on his first day of school, which would have embarrassed Tyson to the point of death.  It was a good morning.

How a plane gets around when it's not flying

 Driving down the highway, Hanna and I came upon this.
 It was a small plane, sans wings, being transported on a trailer.  Of course, the wings were there, just unhinged from their normal spot.
It's amazing how much the small cockpit resembles that of a sports car.  Cool stuff.

I think my Mother in Law has a Time Machine

When our water was off last night, the beautiful Mrs K brought home a water jug from her mom's house.  The moment I saw it, I was transported to 1964.  Not that I remember 1964, but that's when Coleman made this hefty jug.  And it's still perfectly functional.

I find that a lot when visiting the in-laws.  Like the board games and records from the 50's.  It's like they have a time machine sometimes.  It makes me wish that things were still made to last....and it makes me wish we could take care of things better, because lord knows we don't.

Car Watching - 427 Cobra ?

 It's impossible for me to tell if a "Cobra" is a real Cobra or a kit.  Regardless, this one was DEE Lux!  It said 427 on the fender and if I had the time, I would have walked around it and took some better photos.  As it was, I was taking these from inside my car.

Nearly flawless, which leads me to believe that it's a kit.  Whatever it is, it's still hot!  Vroom.
