2016 was just a total joke of a year and I was glad it was over, 2017 has been much better and full of adventures.
January started off recuperating from an sudden illness that happened in mid-December and during this time I started planning a trip up to Vancouver, WA the end of February to visit family and purchase my new adventure vehicle, a 2017 Subaru Outback.
Sunday, Oct 8th I went to the Huntington Beach High School Car Show a friend told me about. Great vintage cars were on display. I enjoy taking detail photos of the cars so please enjoy.
First the obligatory selfie

All I know is a door into the dark Outside, old axes and iron hoops rusting; Inside, the hammered anvil’s short-pitched ring, The unpredictable fantail of sparks Or hiss when a new shoe toughens in water. The anvil must be somewhere in the center, Horned as a unicorn, at one end square, Set there immovable: an alter Where he expends himself in shape and music. Sometimes, leather-aproned, hairs in his nose, He leans out on the jamb, recalls a clatter Of hoofs where traffic is flashing in rows: Then grunts and goes in, with a slam and flick To beat real iron out, to work the bellows.
