from my days as a constant car show participant I have dozens of cool t-shirts with an automotive theme. some of which have still not been worn, so as to have something nice and stylishly me to wear when an appropriate event arises. all I had to do was remove the sleeves.
today was such a day, and I received three compliments on my attire. (a shirt from a local speed shop, but I bought it in Cali years ago. because I knew the owner, and how often can you buy a Kansas shirt in Cali...?)
I really want a straw fedora, but no funding for it. so I went bareheaded. and got sunburned.
now I'm home. and hot. and worn out. but they handled the publicity nicely, and I handed out almost 200 cards. (130 went into participant gift bags)
and I reconnected with my friend the cool shift knob guy. his kid is getting ready to drive. he was 16 when he started coming into the speed shop with his father when we first met. 20 years ago. and I still have his 57 chevy drawing framed on my wall from when he wanted his car welded on, but had no money.
and I have an appointment with the convertible top guy. I want to become his apprentice until I am a convertible top guy. he likes the idea...
gotta go move the sprinkler, I have transplants going in the 100 degree heat. stupid me...
