Sundays Stills Challenge: Things we take for granted,

DSCF0483

Good evening from Hastings.

This is quite a thoughtful challenge by Ed at  Sunday Stills .  I asked my husband about what he takes for granted.  Well the list was long.  In the end I settled for petrol.  We take it for granted that it will always be around for us.  But for our great grandchildren or even earlier if we are not careful it could be in short supply.

I chose this as my husband has a gas guzzler –

This 2972 Pontiac Firebird. His pride and joy.  But boy it is thirsty.  Not to mention hard on batteries as well with it’s V8 engine.

Even these cars were thirsty.

Even coal is getting to be somewhat limited as many coal mines have closed down.  That means that even steam engines would have a hard time in the future.

This steam engine was used to clear rubble after the 1931 earthquake which I had posted today.

If we are not careful we will end up using this form of transport again.
