Ahhh Early Spring

I was out and around in town today and took this photo at 2nd Street and Monroe downtown with my I-Phone. The dog is a brass statue on the corner.

It was a sunny and warm day. We have had a mild winter and a warm January and February. The flowers and trees are blooming early.

Vancouver Olympics

The opening ceremonies were well done. I wish there were more snow. We have had a much warmer than normal January and February this year and it looks like the olympics will just need to find a way to cope.

Sure makes our local winter more enjoyable.

Local Clouds

This odd cloud formation was outside my window yesterday so I took a picture of it.

There is a square portion hanging off the bottom of this cloud. I wonder why.

Kind of looks like a bucket of cloud without the bucket that it was formed in.

1969 Chevelle SS on ebay

The Portland International Auto Show had a lot of cars, but they did not have Acura and they did not have the Chevy Volt electric car. If they had offered any wheelchair friendly two door coupe I would have bought one.

I have looked at all the possible passenger cars that should work but there is none. Manufacturers do not make cars for people like me anymore. I have started thinking about possibly buying an "old car". An old car that has been rebuilt or restored. I looked at a 1969 Malibu last Saturday in Portland, but it has been modified too much and isn't stock. It has loud pipes and a powered up V8 engine. And it does not look nearly as good in person as it looks on ebay. That car needs a lot of work.

Here is an ebay Chevy Chevelle in Illinois that is stock and looks great. But they are asking a ridiculous price of $42,000. Man... that is a ton of money for an old car. But as you can see, it is in wonderful stock condition. I won't be buying this one either.
