The Letter "C" ~~ Weekend Roundup and Reflections
- the Letter "C" Prompts are:
(A) Starts with the Letter "C"; (B) A Favorite; (C) "C" for Calm (Tom's choice); and (D) Reflection(s).
(A) Starts with the Letter "C": Cantaloupes starts with the Letter "C". Our third picture of KP doing the Letter "C" in the song, "YMCA", Body Format. We were in Sprouts of Katy, Texas (our Houston Suburb). KP is our youngest granddaughter.
She had her 10th Birthday Wednesday, tonight she is finishing up her celebration with a sleep-in party with a few other of her friend girls.
1937 Ford Deluxe Cabriolet. Another of my Toy Cars. My dad bought me a low mileage 1937 Ford Tudor car owned by a LOL (Little Old Lady) to drive to my last two years of High School. But he traded it in for a 1949 Ford Pickup before school started because he thought it would be safer having hydraulic brakes.
This newspaper article called their 1936 a Cabriolet, actually it was a Coupe Convertible. I have about 35 of these Cast Iron Toy Cars and Tractors. Most all are 1:16 scale. The doors open, hoods and deck lids open, and the steering wheel steers the front tires on must.
(B) A Favorite: We were having a Corn Dog Friday Lunch. Guess which of us, Mrs. Jim, KP, or Me, had two Corn Dogs? Who had two cups of milk. Did any of us adults have two cups of Diet Coke?
