Gulf Island Building.


I wasn't up very good on the old Nashes and DeSotos. Our family always drove Fords and Chevys, then there was grandpa. Studebaker all the way he was.

Thanks Ray. I'm afraid my health has slowed me down in recent months, but sunshine always seems to perk me up. It looks like our very long and cold winter (the longest and coldest in 70 years), has finally come to an end.

This means that I should be able to get more work done, and hopefully some more pics.

Hi all, got 96%, messed up on those 50s Mercs, rest was 'magic'...loved the Quiz! Jim, glad you are alright with the weather! Did not understand the ferocity of storms, until I saw that interview with a couple who had been 'sucked' up into the Funnel cloud, while inside their Ford Explorer SUV, and were not 'deposited' on the ground for about 5 minutes, and had to 'break out' through the sun roof glass...PHEW..and that wasn't Kansas, ToTo!
Cheers

Same as me Scoggy, 96%. Looks like we might have got the same two cars mixed up.

Have plans to go see your 'digs' sometime soon, but I am getting the 'first wave'..of the 'Rellys', comming, because it is their only way to 'escape' from ...over there, and have to start to ...'shore' up the place! "How can you tell if an "islander", has family...'he has a frezer full of ...crab,..prawns,..and Salmon. and ..always offers you a comfortable chair, a "Bootiful view", and a 'glass' of something..and always agrees that whatever you said was ...RIGHT, ..and hope ..'they' go home...Tomorrow! My B Day is May 10th, and I turn 64..and somehow..now..I get tired..early..so .."Relly impact", ..is like, the 'Tax time", which ..'we' are now under! I apologize for the digressions, and want to see "CoCobolos work,...just for ...'ideas'..eh?

Syd: There's a special technique for avoiding the relly's. You need to live somewhere that is completely inaccessible by car. That's all there is to it.

Second thing is you need a "Quarantine" sign. I'm sure you can figure that one out. Pick anything you like to go with it...beri-beri, malaria, pimple on your bum...whatever.

Should have some pics tomorrow...maybe.

I could attempt to decipher what was said for you, but I do not speak redneck.
If you'll kindly excuse me, I have to go feed the goats and chickens now....

Jim, I think they're talking about relatives who come to visit during the summer to get out of the city and be near the water. The location is sometimes the inspiration for the visit.

I think it's kind of like Northerner's who spend a week or two of winter with a 'favorite' relative who lives in Florida... especially if they live near the ocean.
