Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

1970 Dodge Challenger

 38 degrees with patchy fog when I walked this morning.
Driving to town.

Sunrise 6:13
Morning Walk Steps 13,883

Started out walking to the ball park and around the loop a couple times.
Continued over to the Dollar General and then back through town
and up and down some side streets.

Next I went up to the cemetery on the hill.
Still some fog but lots of sunshine burning off the fog.
There were quite a lot of Red Winged Black birds at the cemetery.
One of them is perched on a post. (about in the center of the picture)

Walked over to say hi to the cows and they were busy eating again.

While walking up the main road I felt my pedometer vibrate so 
headed back to the Jeep.

No one out walking but did talk to Farmer Marvin at the barn.

🙂    🥾    🌫    ☀️

Here's another expensive vehicle.
This one is an amazing amount of money and I just couldn't believe
I read the price right.

Ken said one of the reasons it is so expensive is because it has
a diesel Cummins Engine which is a $10,000 option.

BTW Ginny and Debby yesterday's picture of the Challenger is NOT
a classic but a NEW car.

I did a little more searching around for pictures of my 1970 Challenger
and found a couple.
Took pictures of the pictures, so quality is not so great.

We went to the library again this afternoon.
Ken had to return some DVD's and pick up another book.
I went with him and came out with yet another book to read.
A new Louise Penny book,
A World of Curiosities.
Have two other books to read before I get to it though.

It's been a lovely sunny day.
What a welcome change.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Friday

The older ones were made to last.

Oh, I love the photo of a younger YOU. How cute!

I have no idea why vehicles are so expensive. For that price, you can buy an electric car. Everything is expensive now - and just overpriced. I won't pay for many things right now because I know the prices are inflated and I'm not paying for it. Thankfully we have a newer vehicle and so far, there is nothing pressing that we need to purchase.

As always enjoyed your photos.

Amazing picture of you ( I assume it is you) and your red Challenger.

Vee said...

So beautiful! Even your paint pants can't make you look like a ragamuffin. 😉 Love that photo! And I like your Challenger, too. My family had a Challenger once upon a time—1972, I think.

Ginny Hartzler said...

I haven't seen one of these cars in ages! I love your misty photo of the fence with the bird on the post.

I love your old Challenger and that cute picture of you in 1970! So fun to see this "blast from the past." My hubby had a 1973 Mustang Mach I back in the 70s, then later when we were younger, we bought another '73 Mustang Mach I and a '73 Mustang convertible (red!). He completely restored the Mach I. I miss both of those old cars, but we love Charly's 2020 Charger. Hope you have a good weekend. So good that the sun is out where you are!

Love the old picture of you next to your very cool car :)

That's an expensive car.

God bless.

Melanie said...

Oh my! That car is expensive! I don't physically visit my library muuch but I do borrow Kindle books from them. It's not too far but it's nice to not have to drive and just borrow from home. Have a lovely weekend.

Bill said...

Very cool photo of you with your car.

Another reason that truck was so expensive is inflation. It is amazing that anyone can afford a new vehicle these days.
