It's looking more like spring around here

Had a light bit of snow a few days ago, but it's been sunny for the last couple of days, and it shows.
One of my neighbors down the street has some old cars he brings out now and then, thought you might like a look at them. Sappy flower blogging will come later this week.

Looks like some pirates failed to capture a ship after a NATO ship stepped in.

The pirates were captured at 1 a.m. Sunday after they threw weapons, ladders and scaling equipment overboard, Davies said. Several rounds of ammunition were found on the pirates' boat.
The pirates were detained, but allowed to go free after questioning.

I have a suggestion; next time you set them free, how about doing it in an old time-honored manner?

*****************************************************

Lots of old stuff in the playlist today.

"Baby It's You" by The Beatles
"Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" by Eric Burdon and The Animals
"Mona Lisa" by Nat King Cole
"Fresh Garbage" by Spirit
"Walkin' After Midnight" by Patsy Cline
"The Old Man Down the Road" by John Fogerty
"If You Could Read My Mind" by Gordon Lightfoot
"Mama Told Me Not to Come" by Three Dog Night
"867-5309/Jenny" by Tommy Tutone
"It's My Life" by Bon Jovi and Sugarland

The next to last one is sort of an earworm, but entertaining.



The last song is from a concert with Bon Jovi and Sugarland. Jennifer Nettles has a stronger voice than Bon Jovi, and I think she adds a little more depth and moxey to the number. IMHO, anyway.

Those are some nice looking rides.

I really like that truck.

I love old cars like those. A neighboring city has a car show every Friday night in the summer and it's so fun to walk down the street and check 'em all out.

You have three in a row on your list that fall in my faves: Patsy Cline, John Fogerty, Gordon Lightfoot. I'm also a fan of Jennifer Nettles and Sugarland.

Did you ever do up old Buicks?

Nate said...

Pretty nice cars in that yard. I'm partial to the truck.

BobG said...

The truck is a 1937 Ford; it's a beauty, isn't it?

GeologyJoe said...

wicked cool cars.
hang the pirates.

I like the old truck but something tells me I wouldn't be able to drive it. My father in law has a 62Corvette that he has restored and its a lot of fun to cruise around in.

No salt on the roads in winter there, or he just keeps them inside 'til the sun shines?

BobG said...

GeologyJoe: old cars are always cool, and pirates deserve to hang.

Becky: the early sixties Corvettes are some of the prettiest old cars, in my opinion.

MauserMedic: he keeps them locked up most of the winter; they use a lot of salt on the roads here.
