ABC Wednesday has finally brought us to the letter " Y ".

This YEAR will be our younger son and daughter in law's
15th wedding anniversary.

How does the time go so fast?

This YEAR is the 237th birthday of the United States of

Happy Fourth of July Birthday!

Looking at my Granddaughter's YELLOW sneakers YIELDED
an idea for the letter " Y ".

Then I looked over to the YELLOW submarine floating in our
Church display for camp....
Ah Hah...a picture for the letter " Y ".

Don't you love Classic Cars?

I have forgotten the year and make of this car
it is YELLOW!!

I'm sure someone is YEARNING to tell me all about the car.

Don't forget to go to the ABC link on the sidebar to see what

Great ideas for "Y". I'm sticking to my decision to start fresh with the new Round, than try to find something for Y and Z...

Trying to come up with a new way and theme to do the next round. I sure like the way you do it, and having such a inventory of pictures, really helps.

Hi Photowannabe Sue, okay, figuring out what year and make of that yellow coupe was really tough to figure out, because at first I thought it was either a 1947 Pontiac or Chevy (((my family had a 1947 Pontiac 4-door))), so I went back and forth in Google Images trying to narrow it down, but finally figured out that is is a 1947 Ford Coupe Super Deluxe. Apparently, the "non-super" models didn't have the hood ornament. But all those models of that year, and into 1948 looked almost exactly the same, and about the only way I could make certain it was a Ford (((not being able to see it head-on in your photo))) is the curved portion at the rear of the hood. But yes, a yellow 1947 Pontiac is what the "Kinneys" drove until 1961 when we bought a 1961 Chevy Bell Aire. Our Pontiac's yellow color was not as bright this Ford restoration, but it did sort of stick out like a sore thumb. My brother had it handed down to him when we bought the 1961 Chevy, and believe me I drove it a lot (((with or without permission))), even though I was two years shy of legal driving age. Okay, now here is the story... One bright Sunday morning my friend Kiki Chen and I ditched Church and decided to go joy-riding in my brother's car. There had been some problems with the gear shift linkage repeatedly shearing a cotter-pin and then detaching down near the brake pedal mechanism, so here I am, unlicensed, guilty of theft, and heading down the steepest part of the steepest hill in Pacific Grove--and when I shifted from 3rd to 2nd the gear shift linkage cotter-pin snapped once again. The BAD part is that the linkage was hanging free and ended up swinging behind the brake pedal mechanism, preventing me from applying the brakes fully. My friend Kiki and I were going to die for sure. We were gaining speed and the brake pedal just wouldn't allow me to depress it fully enough to slow me down. Fortunately, I saw an alley on the left side of Eardly Street and we made a harrowing turn into it and avoided the remainder of that deadly hill. My friend and I turned white as a ghost and we never spoke about the incident, and really I have only told this story to very few people. I careful returned home with the car, fixed the broken cotter-pin, and nobody was ever the wiser. Lord God Almighty, how I survived my childhood, I will never know.
