Sunday Stills: Muscle Cars

Dad's V8-019

This week Ed from Sunday Stills has asked us for photos of muscle cars.  I have just spent some time going through my archives and was surprised that I didn’t have many photos of muscle cars. This photo was my ex-hubby’s 1972 Pontiac Firebird.  Considering that we went to a lot of car shows over the 8 years we were married I don’t have that many photos from them.  I did have some from last year but they are on my Time Capsule, which I can’t access at the moment.  So sorry ex-hubby, your car is now on display here.  (It is part of our divorce proceedings and he has been trying to say that the car is his and that I never drove it – I did weddings with him, driving this car, while he drove our 1969 Cadillac de Ville)

1969 Caddy-0713

He sold this a couple of years ago.

Cee’s Oddball Challenge: A Buzzy Bee

Buzzy Bee-147

Good morning from a cool Hastings day.

Last Friday my Social Snappers group went to the Arataki Honey Farm.

We had a great time wandering around looking very suspicious with our cameras.  A couple of the ladies did actually buy some honey and other goodies but I am really not a honey person.  Anyway the shop assistants kept a very close eye on us.

It was actually really interesting.  The best part was that the bees were behind glass at all times so we were safe.

This photo is an iconic Kiwi toy.  We had one growing up and it was much loved.  All you did was pull it along behind you and the wings turned and made a clacking noise.

Buzzy Bee + Prince William

This photo of Prince William was taken in 1983 when Prince Charles and Princess Diana visited New Zealand.

Cee from Cee’s Photography is now back from her retreat, refreshed and ready to go again.  And being Sunday for her, but Monday for me that means it is her Oddball Challenge.
