ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " E "



Beauty is in the EYE of the beholder.
I like the EFFECT
of the lighting on the steer's EYEBALL.
Be sure to ENLARGE the picture to EMPHASIZE the detail.



The EMBLEM on the 1950's Oldsmobile is an EIGHTY- EIGHT
with an arrow through it.
Its not ELABORATE but very recognizable.



E PLURIBUS UNUM.
My Hubby and I have put some EFFORT into collecting
coins. This has EMBELLISHED our income just a tad.



This last weekend was a truly EXCITING EVENT for our family.
We celebrated my Daughter in Law's Father's 90th birthday.
Through a strange set of circumstances a surprise was created.
This 1930 Model A was brought to the hotel where the family was staying.
It is just like the car that her father had . He was given an EXTENDED
ride and he couldn't stop smiling and ELABORATING on the adventure all EVENING.
His age says he should be ELDERLY but he has more ENERGY than most who are far younger than he is.

What a wonderful old car! I admire anyone who has the knowhow and enthusiasm (and the money!) to keep a vintage car alive.
Happy Birthday to the 90 yr old.

Gramma Ann said...

What a wonderful post today. And what a great picture of your 90 year old friend in the old car. That is just a treasure in itself.

Sandra said...

this whole post was truly delightful. the eye I enlarged and studied carefuly. each little hair, a perfect and beautiful eye. i like the reflection of the yeloow car in the rear of the other car, looks like it is racing downhill. and of course enjoyed the old car and 90 year old rider. great post!

Ginny said...

Yet again, another wonderful post! I'm loving the bluer than blue eye. And also the reflection of the yellow car in the car trunk. And what a wonderful and unique birthday present.

Kansas Bob said...

My response to that first pic: "You lookin at me?"

Mara said...

That car is fantastic! I wouldn't have been able to stop talking about it either.

Paula Scott said...

Yowsas! Great post! Elaborating on an exciting event-that Model A would get e excited too-especially taking a ride in it!

Joy said...

Love those lashes of the blue eye. The old car and its occupants is the star.

Cheryl said...

Beautiful photos today. And that car? A dream. Your 90-yo kid sounds like a handful.

Carver said...

These are all great for the letter E but I think my favorite is the first photograph. I love the effect of the lighting on the steer's eyeball. That sounds like a great celebration of your daughter's father in laws birthday. Those old cars are so beautiful to me.

Tumblewords: said...

How wonderful to take a ride in that car - I'll bet that was a highlight! Excellent eye of bull, too! I remember the Olds 88 from my real life. :) Great e's.

What a wonderful series of E surprises!

I imagine the E-motion the birthday kid must have felt riding that car. What a coincidence!

Very nice reflection captures! I love the 30s vintage car. We had a '36 Pontiac at one time. It was so much fun to ride around town in it!

MedaM said...

This is really beautiful and interesting post. Your photos are really great as well as the details that you caught in them. I love that beautiful eye on the first photo and the reflection of the yellow car in the second photo. The coins also make beautiful and interesting photo. And the last photo is beautiful too. It made me smile while reading your writing about 90 year old rider. :-)

blatherfrombrooklyn said...

Great photos, and a wonderful story about your DIL's father and the Model A. How sweet that someone was able to arrange for him to ride in that old car. With so much love in his life, he sounds like a very rich man.

Gattina said...
