Car show...

My middle son and I rode down to Hopkinton, Iowa last Sunday for their annual "Hot Rods and Harleys" car show.  A good time.  It was 46 degrees when we left home for the 70ish mile ride.  A bit chilly, but not bad.  Had a couple of Bloody Marys at Wolfey's for breakfast, then tenderloins from the Hopkinton Lion's Club for lunch.  650 cars, trucks, and motorcycles were entered in the show.  They pretty much take over the entire town.  It was good.

My middle son has pretty much been my rock lately.  :)

I took a lot of pics.  I almost always do.  I like the old cars.  Memories.  Judy and I had a few fun cars over the years.  2 1955 Chevies, a '56 Chevy 1/2 ton, a '73 Mach 1, '71 and '73 Dusters, an '81 Citation X-11, etc.  She would have enjoyed this show.  She would have said "lets build one".  I would have said "how 'bout we build another Harley?".  I miss her.  ;)

There was a band called "Hot Mess" playing at the show.  Kind of a country rock band.  Local.  They were pretty good.

So, yeah...  That's what I've been up to. 

And building another rifle.  Remington 700 Tactical in .308.  Bell & Carlson, Timney, Harris, Wyatt's, SWFA, etc.  I have one in .223 exactly like it with the exception of a black stock rather than O.D.

And taking a friend 70 miles last night to look at a motorcycle.  She bought it.

Politics?  Not today.  Way too much hate out there.  I'm into peace and love at the moment.  ;)

Until the next time...
