And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
My daily driver today is a 20yo ford truck. About 40 years ago in high school I got a free 62' Tbird from Ray's auto salvage to race at Beacon hill speedway's bomber class. I demolished it and the crowd loved it. The Tbird was about 15yo old at that time and worth about a hundred bucks without a title. I doubt today's cars will ever evoke these kind of good memories.ReplyDelete
My daily driver is a 20 yo Chevy Blazer 2dr 4x4 and my back up is a 30 yo Chevy S10 that is the only new ride I have ever purchased and probably the last.ReplyDelete

Somewhere in the Palm Springs area.Delete
Wild guess...Mt. San Jacinto in either Palm Springs or Indio.ReplyDelete
Maybe Borrego Springs, San Diego Co.?Delete
I worked an engineering design contract in Roswell back in 2000, and fell in love with the area; both the desert and the grass prairies. I went back to the area last year; one last Great Run, and I now wish that I could have found a way to move down there permanently. I spent the better part of a week exploring ghost towns in eastern NM, and the only reason I came back home was missing my beautiful wife of 40 plus years.ReplyDelete
Thank you for your site; I enjoy stopping by here a few times a day.
Thenderchickens bring to mind countless early 60s movies and TV shows starring Jack Lemmon as a smarmy ad executive cheating on his shrewish wife with a dim bimbo secretary. I just can't shake that connection.ReplyDelete
