Jim,

Here's more of that one...

SOLD!! 1948 Palace Royale

I do miss the birch and whatnot in the new ones.

Bless the folks that take on the process of restoring old trains and planes and cars and trailers and all.

It looks like this is a tandem axle from the same company; is that right?

I like the Palace exterior but the Covered Wagon interior looks more inviting to me. Sold for $63k... I wonder if I would be brave enough to take it camping?

Hmm, what to pick now...

I do miss the birch and whatnot in the new ones. --Civil Guy


"That's the living room" -- great one! And, yes, I think we are all a bit nuts aobut our little eggs...which is partly why we named ours Peanut--one shell with two NUTS in it.


that interior! Oh, MY! What an ADULT interior! Makes me feel like Peanut is for little kids!


(No brown, no booze, no chrome, no vinyl, just easy and bright and canine chic! that is, easy to deal with the dogs in there...) wow!


Mitzi: Yup, thanks a lot, 8) stuck in the jingle channel now. ;O I can only hope tonight's 4th of July fire gives me a slight burn so I can think about something else!
You Florida folks really know how to do an earworm!


Take this:!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


"JUST SIT RIGHT BACK AND YOU'LL HEAR A TALE,
A TALE OF A FATEFUL TRIP...
THAT STARTED FROM THIS TROPIC PORT
ABOARD THIS TINY SHIP.


THE MATE WAS A MIGHTY SAILING MAN,
THE SKIPPER BRAVE AND SURE,
FIVE PASSENGERS SET SAIL THAT DAY
ON A THREE HOUR TOUR...


A THREE HOUR TOUR!


THE WEATHER STARTED GETTING ROUGH,
THE TINY SHIP WAS TOSSED...
IF NOT FOR THE COURAGE OF THE FEARLESS CREW..."










HAPPY AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY, EVERYONE!


(The Revolutionary War followed for many years...and many times we were nearly lost...but they did it! They did it! )


BEST
Kai

That's when we won our independence from Canada, right?

Sort of. Here's a take on it that you've not likely read before.
Your revolution was dumb and it filled us with refugees: A Canadian take on the American Revolutionary War

I've long enjoyed reading popular histories and found your post engaging and interesting.

CivilGuy--well, kinda. I just read the book, Valiant Ambition about it and it struck me as odd that we celebrate the day we SAID we wanted to be rid of King George, and not the day we WON that riddance. (King G was the head of Canada, too, then, I believe?) I'da thunk we'd be celebrating our victory, not our intention.


Comme ci, comme ca. (pardon my French!)


BEST
