My Alphabe-Thursday -- "A"
"A" is for AXLE today. This poor old Model T Ford will be up to it's axles in mud very soon. But don't worry, the team of horses is there to help out. Hence (perhaps) the old saying, "Get a Horse!"
That was hollered a lot at the cars when they broke down or got stuck in the early days of automobiling.
Speaking of early days, I rode a horse to high school for my freshman and sophomore years. Even through the snow on in the mud, up hill and down hill, for three miles.
Check out more Alphabe-Thursday 'A' assignments with Miss Jenny at the head of the class. You can find her here.
Picture courtessy of John M. who e-mailed this to me and lots of other people. John currently owns two Model T Fords.
Have a terrific day. :)
Great pic. Have a great Memorial day weekend too!
PS In my latest novel (a psychological/suspense crime novel), there's a character called Jim! Don't worry - he's modelled on someone I knew years ago in the UK! Don't *recall* any other similarities with others called Jim!!
PPS He's returning in my current novel (work in progress) so all Jims of the world had better watch out!!!
Thanks for stopping by. That is Norfork lake and the road crosses the dam and curls around. There are camping spots by the river and by the lake.
Thank you so much for your words. Those of us who have lived in that period applaud you! We only wish that the younger generation could see life the way we have for so many years!!!!
What an amazing and imagination invoking post!
This was really, really cool!
You are absolutely entertaining!
