... unless you're feeling a little mulish.

Thought you might appreciate these ultra modern photos showing the latest in, um, the latest,
the ... well, see for yourself.

A casual ride to display the latest fashions by the seashore.

Modern transportation on a modern bridge - boat - whatever.

Typical traffic jam.

Look out! Here the comes the fire truck, er, wagon, uh, horses?

"I'll be down to get you in a taxi, honey..."

The very first curbside eatery.

Ah, the latest cheesecake.

Nice day for a ride in the country.

For those of you who are not in northern California, IT'S STILL RAINING! Would someoneplease tell the weather(or not)man that this is the month of MAY -- not February. Thank you.

Humor --

Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, CA, some folks, new to boating, were having a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 foot boat, going. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power they applied. After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina, thinking someone there might be able to tell them what was wrong. A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working condition The engine ran fine, the out-drive went up and down, and the propeller was the correct size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath. He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard. Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer.


  1. I bet traffic jams smelled even worse in those days.

  2. Baltimore still looks like that! Minus the horses and buggies.
