Volkswagon (year and make don't ask me I just thought it was "cute" in quotation marks cause I know that cars are not supposed to be cute)
this is a Triumph (again year I am not so sure of maybe 1946) I don't love this color but the car is cool and really isn't that all that matters.
1967 Rover TO. Don't ask me what that is exactly but it's a cool looking car.
Roadster (I'm going with late 20's early 30's)
the year and make on this one escapes me. I want to say Jag and it's going to be around the 1960's
1973 Ford Mustang
Mercedes Benz another one where the year escapes me but I love how the doors open up and not out.
The Row of Corvettes (can you pick out which one is Dad's)
Another Row of Cars this one was to the right of where we sat.
GT Shelby Cobra Replica 1965 or 66 maybe I tried not to get too close to this one for fear I might drool on it.
Ford Model T
Another Lovely shot of Dad's car.
1966 Chevrolet Corvair
1969 Mach 1 Mustang
1958 Porche Speedster this picture does it no justice, the color is much prettier.
This is a 1948 Chrysler Woodie.
1947 Rolls Royce
1937 Rolls Royce
And a shot of the back of that same car.
This sign is actually the explanation for the next car
1922 Cadillac (that's my sister to the left and Dad to the right)
1912 Model T Ford
And this car (not a classic by the way it's a 1988 speedster) This car runs on batteries only there are 15 of them in all makes the car weigh a lot and it doesn't make any noise when it's on which makes it really dangerous cause people expect to hear something when there is a car coming at them. The horn gets used a bunch in this car not out of being rude but just to make sure no-one gets killed. The guy who owns this car told us that you can usually get 50-60 miles per charge.

Now if you have a child who wants to see this movie I would say totally take them it's cute but (and this is a sensitive but for some people) if you have had someone older (grandparent or great aunt or uncle) in the family die recently you might not want to take them, it's pretty sad at the beginning.
Russell is funny and sweet really has no clue what the "wilderness" is. As he says "it's more wild then I expected". Russell is enthusiastic and persistent.
Mr. Fredricksen (Carl) is "not your average hero" retired balloon salesman at a theme park is being forced to leave his home which is what drives him to attach thousands of balloons to his home and fly the South America. While flying he discovers a stow away (Russell) on his porch.
Kevin is the name that Russell has given this very rare bird that is the center of the movie major trouble maker but sweet in HER own way (yes Kevin it turns out is a girl) Muntz (who I will talk about in a minute) is after Kevin because people do not believe such a bird exists and called Muntz a faker and a sham many years ago.
Dug the dog (I must admit I am a bit of a sucker for this under achieving dog) he's a golden mutt living in the wild of South America as part of a pack of dogs kept by none other then Muntz himself (oh did I mention all the dogs have the ability to talk?) Dug is sort of the nerd of the pack and constantly mocked for it. The other dogs in the pack send him on a "special" mission where Dug accidentally catches the large rare bird (Kevin).
Muntz (Charles Muntz) is a adventurer from the 1930's who inspired Carl (and late wife Ellie) to follow in his footsteps and parrot his famous mantra "adventure is out there". Charles Muntz has collected priceless relics and amazing scientific discoveries. Muntz however brought home a skeleton of the large rare bird (Kevin) and is called a fraud his discovery is discredited by the scientific world. He has vowed to bring back a live specimen for all the world to see (he fails by the way)
By the end of the movie Russell has achieved his goal and gotten his last Junior Wilderness Explorer patch and moves up in rank he and Carl become very best friends (and they gain the companionship of a talk dog)
That was our Friday.
Saturday I was up early out to the barn and working by 8ish (we needed to have a donut break first) and we loaded up the horses and went to Carlyle Park and went on a trial ride. it went well (give or take a few freak outs but nothing that knocked me off and nothing we couldn't handle). We even hit the ring for a bit cause it was open and well why not. It turns out that Showoff loves the trail riding and was actually a bit of a freak out in an unfamiliar ring by himself (which means I think it's part unfamiliar ring and part horses he's not familiar with). And possibly part me. It's completely possible that I freak out and don't realize it. But it was fun and a good afternoon and I was EXHAUSTED after we got back. I picked up pizza from Theresa's Pizza in North Ridgeville (if you live out there try their Western BBQ Chicken Pizza AMAZING! Went home ate and crashed. Crashed so hard that my sister called me and I answered the phone (little did I know) I didn't realize that I was actually on the phone till I heard Dave ask from the other room "Hey who are you talking to" and I said I was on the phone. Don't ask me how long before that point I was on the phone for I don't know and frankly neither does my sister (I asked). Sunday was lazy and fantastic we lounged around stopped by my parents house Dave helped (and when I say helped I mean he basically did all of the work) my Dad replace the valve covers in his Corvette. Now the valve covers are shiny and pretty instead of that ugly blue crap that was there before.
We hung out at the park (Dave played Basketball and I just sort of sat and hung out with Angie) But we basically lounged for the day it was nice to have a slow lazy day for once.
So that was my weekend. How was yours?
Now it's Monday I'm stuck at work and oh yeah it's raining...... AGAIN!
Good Mosh Pitting everyone one!!

Now if you're me you think wow that looks a lot like something I could get at Anthropoligies (which I only ever get things there on mega sale cause everything is so expensive) which brings me to my second point which is it must cost a fortune but low and behold $36.99!!!! AWESOME!
So I have linked the home page here cause lets face who doesn't love a deal? And trendy clothes that don't cost a small fortune? Count me in! Happy shopping to all. :-)
