Isn't it fun to take a walk in the woods? Think of how lovely places like this will be in just a few weeks! And think of how much work it took to make these great steps! That's a lot of lumber and garden spikes all up in there!
On this date...September 30, 1955, actor James Dean died in a car crash in California, becoming the first celebrity to become more famous dead than alive. He was a mumbly actor whose acting style was then followed by hundreds of other surly, mumbly actors. He made three big movies: "Rebel Without A Cause," "East of Eden," and "Giant." Dean was 24 and speeding like a fool on a public highway when he crashed his Porsche into a Ford driven by a student named Donald Turnupseed.
Here's the receipt from when "Jimmy" Hendrix bought a guitar, an amp, and assorted gear just two months after the pinnacle of his renown at Woodstock. Within a year, he too would be gone.
Caption from the site where I saw this: "This is my brother Frank eating a frankfurter at the Frankfurt station in Frankfurt."
I have to figure that someone in the Hallmark store put this in the wrong slot.
I happen to know a lot of people who either live here, or should.
I remember the first Ranchero I ever saw (Chevy had a 1/2 car, 1/2 pickup called the El Camino.) I thought it was the coolest thing on the road, and it just still might be.
