Have you had your car read lately? #020 — Six Word Saturday — Three Youthful Finds
Do you remember your youthful driving?
That doesn't count knocking down a road barrier before school. My sister wouldn't count knocking down the neighbor's mailbox either. I feel a little bad about that as I taught her how to drive. Plus, I think Dad was with her when she did it.
This first car goes nowhere fast. Very fast. Just one look at this driver and you will know that she is related to me, Jim. In fact, she is my grand-daughter, KP, out for a spin.
Her race care is in the Incredible Pizza restaurant in Conroe, Texas. The car tipped from side to side as it made it's journey around the track. KP did not like that. I asked Mrs. Jim if the car had a seat belt as that would help stabilize her. Mrs. Jim said yes, but that KP did not like it.
Since she does not like foolishness and the out of ordinary for her involvement in car riding I predict that she will become a very safe driver. She watches out for people approaching her on either side. This car did not have a rear view mirror but she did turn around often to see if other racers were catching up with her. KP definitely gets an AAA+++.
This car arrived downstairs from Karen's and Billy's London flat in the middle of the night. I have it in my mind that it was about two in the morning. Bars close there at 11 PM so they didn't just come from a bar.
The occupants were very noisy and seemed to care less about waking the neighbors up. After some more loud giggling, more discrete chatting and whispering, one jumped out and ran into the building. Eventually the car drove off.
These people were teens out having fun for the night. The car surely was not stolen or they would be more discrete. Probably a concert had been in order and then a light breakfast type meal afterwards. For their sake I do hope no one was in trouble for being out that late. My rating here is ABB+
The driver of this car is obviously on an errand. I believe he or she is delivering a family meal to a flat upstairs above these stores.
There is no Cafe Lidos here on St. Johns Wood High Street (Westminister, London, U.K.). The closest one is down by the Paddington Station, a little over two miles to the South. It is too far to pick up supplies so I am saying a delivery.
Our delivery person then is probably a young male in his early 20's. He dresses well or could be in a Lido's uniform. Probably he is not married, because of the connections he is in position to make, he has a special friend.
The driver obviously flaunted the parking rules as he/she is not in a regulation parking place. Do notice that cars are parked heading either way on this street. The car, even though now being driven in the rain, has been flawlessly kept. I give an AAA+++ for the driver, the car, and the business.

My Week of Blue — MidWeek Blues — Please Guess
Here is a picture of my Napa Auto Parts calendar for May.
[You can click on any picture for a large view.]
[One more click makes it super large.]
Wednesday morning I had a lower tooth ground off in preparation for a crown. I had been wearing a temporary filling for a couple of months to make sure it would not hurt which would require a root canal before the crown.
Thursday evening I went to our Church radio club meeting. We studied antennas which was a goo review for me. It was good too that I attended because only four of us showed up. We have about a dozen members. I could have attended a Philco Tech Rep retirement luncheon but that was a ways away in Kemah south of Houston by the Bay. I did not feel like driving 90 miles each way.
Saturday I woke up at 2:30 AM to get ready for the broadcast of THE WEDDING OF THE CENTURY. Watching was well worth the effort. By time for the three o'clock start I had coffee made, the TV's tuned in, and the dogs taken care of. The dogs haven't learned to tell time so to keep them happy since they were up I fed them breakfast.
Amber has been coming down from her loft room. Since we were settled in the living room, she wanted to join us. She promptly found a nice viewing point from Katrin's new blue bed.
Our Karen watched from Green Park, next to Buckingham Place. The evening before she parked herself up close by the street coming in so she could see the goings and comings. And could get some very good pictures.
I got some good pictures of the Royal Wedding. Most of the time we watched ABC because we like Robbin Roberts as she is local, New Orleans and Mississippi. I wasn't much good for the rest of the day. Saturday morning Mrs. Jim had a board meeting for the Family Promise here. I hadn't realized it before but she has agree to serve another three year term.
This was Adi's place when she wasn't laying by my feet besides one of the living room recliners. I think she stayed there to keep Amber away from her bed.
Sunday was BP's birthday. She is living with her family in London now. We sang the Happy Birthday song to her on Skype. She and KP were at her computer for the call. At times KP wanted to steal the show. I made sure that she remembered their family tradition, started by Karen, that one's birthday celebration is to last for the entire month.
This picture is of the north end of our side yard flower bed. The azaleas have bloomed and quit. I had thought perhaps these plants had all been eradicated because everything except the azaleas got cut there (please note the blue water of the neighbor's pool showing through).
But here they are, growing and blooming nicely. I am not sure what they are but we call them elephant plants. They grow large green leaves and the plant stands about four feet high during the summer.
Monday at noon we had a men's program with a speaker. I hope to tell of that more later. In the evening my Sunday school class had supper at Luby's. Mrs. Jim and I attended that. Today she played golf but tonight we are going to a meeting on how to protest the assessment to lower our property taxes.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking here. 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.
What is this?
Honestly, I cannot remember what it is.
I cannot remember why I took it either but it was taken this week with Mrs. Jim's camera.
There may not be a correct answer. And for sure there won't be any prizes.
So again, I ask:
What it this thing?

A little Monday morning ditty
there is a fine line
fowl nor fish neither is he
don't cross the border
lamb pork or beef we might eat
this white rat has gotta go
