A Day for Seedys: Part Two



To the car wash….of course…..



…for one cannot take a filthy truck to a gathering at the Automotive Museum. He’s old enough now that folks notice him again.





Food, cars and nice important folks. The Prez, the friend, and another blogger.







Awards, and cars. “Look at that original upholstery, Herman.” Lots of that. A good time was had by all, we talked, smiled, ate. The cars slowly drove away. The picnic stuff was put away till the next affair, the coals were disbursed, the day grew quiet. and I napped and read while he worked. It worked.





Then home thru the park past delightful Gill designed Christian Science Church buildings, the Jewish Synagogue, past the Timpkin House and down the hill towards home….almost.









We stopped at the Discovery Shop to see if a wonderful leather portfolio was still for sale….I’m always trying to upgrade G for the great Job Hunt. Nope sold.



Then home to unload, to the ladies room, and to put our feet up in the too busy living room under the eyes of one of our latest estate sale finds….an opinionated Japanese kitty print. Boy, we sure weren’t hungry for dinner at dinner time.

  2. I absolutely love the "still too busy" room. Love the bookshelves, love the chairs, love it.

    Love your busy day, too. Not sure how you managed to pack all that living into a single day!

  4. Whoops. I hadn't meant cave in the 'cave' way. I meant it in the snuggle down, cozy, homestyle way. Amazing how comments written in a hurray get interpreted!
