Here's what WE did last week (snowiest month in metro Detroit history since they started keeping records) - shot these yesterday morning.   Shocked
Lot of work there John, get out the heating pad for the back. Lovely place though and picturesque. I am afraid I am not that ambitious. I just looked out the window and counted cardinals. Cheesy



John, please tell us you have a snow blower!!!  Shocked

Okay, now you guys are making me feel a bit guilty.  I'd post a picture of our cove with about 1/8 inch ice on it.  But John would probably hurt himself laughing at what we call winter here in NC.  Grin

Ko-lec-tor, love the cardinals.  We share the same state bird.  Hate to see that 69 covered in snow!  Cry

We've got plenty of Canadian geese here.  If anyone wants them, I'd be glad to pay for the bus ticket....  Wink

If it makes anyone feel better, I'll be in the snow in Philly later this week....

I like to kick back and choose which one I'm gonna start today, only I don't want to mess up the laser alignment of the tire treads on the floor. LOL -

Smiley   I don't think you could go wrong with any choice..   OR..  you could begin cleaning and checking parts of your '69 Z for putting back together? Smiley    I DO want to see it whole again one day, along with mine..  (I'll race ya??).. Smiley

If you had that many cars, you would have a mechanic, who started them for you....  Grin

If that was my garage there would be a bed over in the corner.  Cause that's were I'd be sleeping..  Not by choice...  Unless it was all Camaros then it would be my choice..  Lol

If you look closely at the pic, you'll notice there is not a single F body in the house. Every convertible Chevy made from 1926 on, but no Camaros - one good way to tell this is not me !

The Z will get assembled one day - hopefully by me. Too long a stretch like it is.

You know, sometimes we do need another pair of hands.. or other times we need someone to think thru a problem with us.. give us encouragement and confidence so we proceed to get it done...  so let's all encourage one another.. especially those of us who have had our cars for a long time.. 'resting in our garages'.. Smiley...

Ill make you a deal.  Ill come down to "Alabamy" and help you get yours going for trade for that 55 Nomad.. Shocked   Grin


Edit:

You know you have the same offer as Steve or anyone for that matter in this region.  Just might be a little harder for me due to the distance.   Grin

It looked like that here in north Alabama this morning also, Phillip.. but it's warming up nicely, so I think the roads will be clear by mid afternoon.. Smiley 
that's the way snow usually works here..  Smiley

Here, too.  In fact, we're supposed to get rain tomorrow, which should clear the roads. Then, Saturday, the Camaro is coming out of the garage (I hope!) to a "First Time Showing" training event.

Now, I'm thinking about the folks up north in the US and across the pond in England's flooding.

Our banana tree was leaning over. I just realized it's loaded with bananas. It will be another month or two before they are ripe... Smiley

Hey Kurt,
Me encanta la fruta fresca en el mercado de San Josť.
Now, you're rubbing rock salt in the snow wound!
