This is a shot of my husband Bill, doing what he does best (and what he LOVES doing)..............he is being his curious self.
He's especially curious about cars & trucks. And he's a master of figuring them out, and I love them too.
On the recent vacation trip (hope you guys aren't sick of the travel photos) we spent the night in Vicksburg, Mississippi on our way back home to Texas. The next morning, we couldn't leave the town of Vicksburg without exploring. So, as we were driving around, we stumbled upon this old, abandoned gasoline station that had this 1960's something MG, Model A car parked on the back of the old (circa 1940s) COE (cab over engine) truck.
When we spotted this place, the Ford Expedition (my car) that Bill was driving came to a screeching halt - literally, the tires were smoking.
After Expedition that the 4 of us were riding in came to a stop (I think it was still rolling, and I had to throw it in park to stop the beast); my sweetheart Bill & my brother-in-law literally fell out of the car & ran..........
Seriously, the guys ran under the awning of this old service station to check this out.
Seconds after the guys abandoned the Expedition, my sister & I watched them falling over themselves and running toward their "find" for a couple of seconds........ then we departed the Expedition in a very "lady-like" & "dainty" fashion (are you laughing yet?) to slowly follow the men (with cameras in hand) under the awning of this ancient service station to view this treasure that obviously had enchanted the men. My sister & I were giggling all the way............
Gee, the place was dusty & full of cobwebs, but my sister & I were troopers and followed the men around with our cameras capturing their joy of exploration. It was great!
Check this out in X2 or X3.
Hope you enjoy this today, and that it gives you some sense of the fun, exploration & silliness that we enjoyed on our trip.
Have a great day my friends,
