Antique Cars #19

By handlerstudio  
When we have traveled to Mt. Desert Island, Maine (the home of much of Acadia National Park), I have probably bicycled just about every road on the island, where there is no road that is level....always either going uphill or downhill...and some of the uphills are killers. When I ride, I take my now fairly elderly Canon S100 with weighs little and is small, all of which matter on a bike. Not far from where one drives onto the island, I came upon this old White Tow Truck....and of course had to stop and photograph this beautifully kept up or restored vehicle...out for the world to see.

I missed EPZ yesterday....I think I have a good "excuse". My daughter gave birth last night....and my wife and i stayed with our grandson Liam (3 years old) since Will and Gabby were a little busy. My 5' tall daughter gave birth at about 3:45 this morning to a 7lb 10oz and 20" baby girl (Will is about 6'3")..bigger at birth than her older brother. Photos to follow after she comes home tomorrow. Will home with Liam.

We here in the US...and the world, are witnessing history right now...something that is hard to imagine actually happening....and no idea what is going to be done with the insane president now in the White House....and his political and mob supporters. As in, may you Iive in interesting times.

News just out....Twitter has permanently cancelled Trumps account. For life. That is like cutting off his tongue. Calls for the 25th Amendment to be invoked, Impeachment, or calls for him to resign. All with two weeks left...and with fears with an unhinged president that he could be dangerous to the country or the world.

And even some shadows here.....

First, congrats on the new grand daughter. You will love her to death. If I'd known grandkids were this great, I'd have foregone children and went straight to grandkids. You can have so much fun with them, spoil them rotten and the really great part, when you're tired or it's not fun anymore, you just give them back!

I assume the top on the truck cab was an improvisation.

Enough with the cars. Let's see the new grand daughter!

And antique tow truck and now it would need a modern tow truck to move it maybe. Congratulations on the new granddaughter. That's always so very exciting.
Take care,
Best wishes Sandy

Congratulations Peter, like this well detailed set,
Congratulations Peter. We had our first grandchild Isabelle on July 2nd and she is lovely. Sorry if I've mentioned this before but she is 3/8 Dutch, 1/4 West Indian, 1/4 English and 1/8 Chinese and she is lovely.
I'm guessing Michelle is running ahead of Melania in the names betting.

Congratulations Peter. Great news of your new grandchild.

As for Trump I am full of despair. I have little respect for the politicians we have in the UK and Scotland (from any side of the political spectrum) and I often find them embarrassing but this is something more worrying. I do hope Biden can restore some respect and can also do a good job that prevents a return to Republican power in the future.

That tow truck is beautiful and looks as though it would have been a strong vehicle in its time.
