My Alphabe-Thursday -- "F" -- Things in a Row -- Two Questions --
"F" is for Flathead Ford: This restored 1934 Ford V8 Tudor belongs to one of our car club members. Our Montgomery Country (Texas) Early Ford V8 Club met on June 2, 2012, at one of our member's home. We ate, kicked tires, toured the members Texas ranch home, and had a club meeting (link).
The pictures below are of the Flathead V8 engine of three cars. Please notice for Thursday Things in a Row posting Ford positioned the spark plugs all in a row. The first engine on the left is from the 1934 Ford pictured above. The second is of a members 1936 Ford, while the one on the right is in a 1952 Ford V8 Pickup.
Ford manufactured the Ford Flathead engines for his cars from 1932 through 1953. In 1954 the Ford V8's were the newer modern Overhead Valve V8 engines.

And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)
Last week 's post was about gourmet and public transportation. The responses were very interesting.
My Two Questions for this week:
1. What are your produce buying methods?
First we check the weekly specials at Krogers, H.E.B, and Brookshire Brothers. We also try to buy items in season. Then for the rest we 'splurge' on what seems to be good at the moment we are shopping. The local Kroger store is our favorite place to shop. Sometimes we end up at Sams when we cook for a crowd.
2. What is your favorite fruit? How often do you get to eat it?
Bananas for ice cream and apples to eat with cheese or make apple pie are about equally my favorites. I like most fruits after these, probably starting with oranges and then grapes. (I hardly ever buy grapes if they are over 99¢ a pound which would be a sale price.)
Bonus Question: Did you fly your American flag for Flag Day on June 14?
Yes, Mrs. Jim and I did fly it on our pole in the ground out in the front yard flower bed.
The picture here is an old July 4, 2006, one on Adi's Meme. I took a picture this year for flag day but wanted to get Adi back on the blog. She six years older now than in this picture but still gets around good. Good that is, with her arthritis pills and shots.
Regarding the grandson, he was still sound asleep when I took those pictures...he would have never posed.
My favorite summer fruit is watermelon, but I don't buy it nearly enough because I'm the only one who eats it here. Everyone else has food sensitivity to melons. :(
We've been buying our produce at the regular grocery store, but I heard that there is a farmer's market every Friday about a mile from our home. Will have to check it out soon!
Fun-tastic post. Thanks for visiting all my F-words.
I had missed you, glad You stopped by. Afraid that since my cancer treatments started I can't get around to all the blogs I would like to visit. It is all I can do to keep up with return visits to those that visit me.
Many thanks for stopping by my blog!
Such an interesting *F* post – great pics. The dog and banana are great.
Have a great Alphabe-Thursday
As for grocery shopping, I check the ads to see where the sale price is at, make a list, and go.
My favorite fruits are peaches, nectarines, and watermelon for the summer. I'll eat it all year round if we have them.
Summer fruits have to be avocado, strawberry, and watermelon for us. If the fruits look fresh and good, I will buy them..
I usually get produce at Sprouts, but I don't think that is a nationwide chain.
Gorgeous car, too!
You and my husband have to meet someday. You both love the same era of vehicles!
This was a fun stop today!
Thank you for linking.
When I go to buy fruit - in season - I love to go to Whole Foods.
My favorite fruit are peaches! lol
