A blue day — MidWeek Blues — Ford Model A Pickup

This light blue Ford Model A Pickup was parked in the Handicap Parking section of our church parking lot during church services. I'd love to have one like this. My guess on the year is 1929 or 1930.
I pushed the blue color but everything you see blue is really blue though some is not as blue as you are seeing.

It's a blue day today. It rained all day yesterday and last night so there won't be any golf today. Bad wintry days can be the bane of a pleasant retirement.

Speaking of guesses, I regret to say my contest isn't coming along very well. I need to publicize it better.

Here is the deal:


How Many Dog Biscuits Are in My Jar?
(winner and correct answer here soon—I will contact the winners)

That sounds easy. Just guess how many dog biscuits are in my jar.

They're sold in boxes like this. The jar is an antique (almost) from the 1950's.

Although these biscuits are sold for puppies I give them to my adult dogs, Adi (beagle) and Katrin (toy poodle).

I don't give them a whole biscuit at a time so these thin ones break easier.

Okay, now, give it a try. Leave your guess in with your comment. Your last entry is the one that counts.

Oh yes, you can click on the picture to make it bigger. Easier to count? I didn't say that.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did.

Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE or BLUE THOUGHT, you don't have to write.

How many calories do thin biscuits have per serving?
Oh, and Jim, thanks for visiting!
I love the car too and I'd also love to have it. They just don't make them like this anymore. We have lots of car shows in our area so seeing these all cherried out is the norm. Awesome.

I'll stand by my guess.

Have a terrific day. :)
I would be there drooling over that as well.

I had no luck figuring out the button but I can help promote your contest!
That truck reminds me of the Walton's. :)
I love it and it doesn't look at all out of place beside that bright red truck.
I'm going to go leave a guess on the biscuits. I was an English teacher,not math, so I don't expect to be right.
'Bad wintry days can be the bane of a pleasant retirement' - oh how I can relate to that!
i love vintage cars! great find!

My Midweek Blues
I love the old truck, Jim! I can see my husband driving that!
I really like the old truck a lot! There is a similar one in our town that a lady drives and it is pink and white. I hope to get pic of it one day and I'll be sure to share it.

My guess is 100 dog biscuits. My little doggie could eat them all day long!
love the old car, especially that it was parked in a handicap spot :)
I really like the old car.. and will have to think about how many biscuits fit that good looking jar! I wonder how many biscuits a dog could eat at one sitting?
Was the truck handicapped or the occupant of the car? :) Love it.

Looks like a vintage mug in that photo too? Fire King maybe?

Guess 65 biscuits.

And that gas pump is not for sale as far as I know. I really couldn't even figure out if the place behind it was a collector's residence or a store....so I wasn't going to go knocking.
I'd ask Adi... but she's not telling! ~ j///b
Hi Jim ~~ I liked seeing the old blue vehicle and it is a reminder of past days, when things were built to last. Not like the throw away society
we have now. Thanks for your comments, sorry to be so long replying but I have had visitors.
Glad you liked the jokes, I am very lucky friends send me so much funny stuff. My doctor thinks I may be able to leave the kidney stones alone (which suits me fine) I see a specialist this coming week for a second opinion.
Take care my friend, Regards, Merle.
Hi Jim! Love the old car photos! Wish I owned them! Ha!!

As for the dog biscuits, I'll guess 72.
