Don’t look in the upper left corner and you won’t go blind. I should have taken my own advice. I’m still blinking dots.

Still, I love this vintage truck so much. The windows look like they might’ve melted a little bit.

That bumper is hanging on for dear life.

Somebody fled and left the door open. Did you notice that?

She’s probably having a triple hit of espresso at Balzac’s right now.

That’s where I’d be if the bumper was hanging by a bolt on my vintage truck, and the windows were all melty, and the headlights were gone, baby, gone.

You got a shot of the hood, the grill here.

Wait until you see the interior.

I’m saving that for a special moment.

Meanwhile, back on the intertoobs. Let’s do a little…

I Call it the Crypt and Feed Finds…

I call it the Crypt, even though it’s not underground. Mr. G, honey made this garden box for my birthday last year. I haven’t had a chance to use it yet. Can’t wait. Try not to let the glare poke you in the eye.

It’s eight feet long, two feet deep, and 2 1/2 feet high. I told him if I go before he does, he can just pitch me and my Kindle in there and plant potatoes. Elen humor. But with the resurgence of coyotes in Burbville, I’m rethinking that. He’s probably more worried about a zombie apocalypse.

We’ll never see Kansas again, Toto.

Digging out. Filling up.

That last one was taken yesterday.

I ripped the winter wreath off the front door today.

Ripped. It. Off.

The end.
