One of a Kind

July 8, 2020

Dean Weller , Kansas, saw a VW Beatle with a wrought iron body and decided to make his “A” look similar. It is one of kind. The car was on its way to the Model A museum near Gilmore Michigan and stopped for a brief visit to our club meeting last night:

Saharan Dust

Went down to the park this evening to photograph a Saharan dust sunset. Not too spectacular but the little bandit in the bottom pic made it worthwhile:

We Remember

May 24, 2020

Over Memorial Day weekend I visited the new (2018) Veterans Memorial in Perryville, MO. It is a replica of the Vietnam Wall in D.C. Made of black granite from India as is the one in D.C. It is the same size and has the same names as D.C. but is easier to get to than the one in Washington D.C.

it is impressive and sobering. If you are ever in the area (1 1/2 hours South of St. Louis) visit it and pay your respects to the brave men and women (8 females and all nurses) on the Wall. There are  some photos below which will give you an ideal of its grandeur
