Interesting that the song "Take it easy" allowed Winslow AZ to start a tourist trade after the town was bypassed when I-40 replaced the famous Route 66

The statue in the picture is Jackson Brown who co wrote the song with Glen Frey.

And a topical event

On september the 23rd a life size brone stature of Glen Frey will be unveiled in Standin' on the Corner Park

And the millennials here sigh and roll their collective eyes as our generation shows our collective age.

Great picture, Carlos, and I assume that's you(but not the bronze one) standin' on the corner. Is the motorcycle or the truck yours?

It's me, the truck, a flat bed Ford, is a prop you see reflected in the window.

My mother enjoyed ice cream through her "golden years" as well.

May we all enjoy ice cream for a long, long, long time! And you know, the older I get the more I like vanilla. Vanilla is a surprisingly complex flavor.

Thank you for sharing such a heartwarming family photo.

I love vanilla ice cream it's my favorite flavor.

My favorite non-homemade dessert is a scoop of Haagen Das vanilla ice cream, served in an over-sized martini glass, with a shot of Kahlua poured over it.

I guess I'd better post a photo, so we don't go too far off topic.

I know I've posted this in other threads before, but I have always loved this picture that Eric took of me a few years ago. (I'm the raccoon, of course...)

That soft serve vanilla ice cream cone my mother was chomping on actually started out chocolate coated. The place we went calls them Brown derbies. She bit off the hard chocolate faster than I could get the camera out!

I feel bad because I can't do her makeup the way she used to do, but I also feel it's good for her to get out with me. 2014 is when she went in the hospital for 4 months and nearly died, and I've taken care of her in her home, ever since.

Here are two other pictures of my mother:

A 2013 birthday picture:



And a 2012 birthday picture:

.

A drawing in light is more than a thought.

Ansel Adams didn't catch the grey inbetween the black and white. He caught the silver and the translucence and depth.

So no longer residing in south London, I now call the Isle of Wight home on a semi permanent basis. I will be staying with my father who at 92 is starting to need someone on hand to help.

Today I got broadband installed which seem to work just fine, however trying to connect to the router from the spare room is posing a few challenges, wi-fi is a bit weak and "powerline adaptors just don't work.

However I will attempt to post a few pictures that have taken longer to upload to photobucket than I am used to.

Just for those who may not have seen one this is a Lymington to Yarmouth Whightlink ferry, the same one in fact that brought my overladen car across last week.





Picture taken from the Yarmouth pier.

One of the tourist attractions some may have heard of is the Needles, a rock formation of the western tip of the Island.

I decided to have a look on Sunday afternoon. To get there you have to walk down a road to the Needles Battery, looking back you can see the cliff of Alum Bay Famous for its multicoloured sand.



The needles apparently take their name from a thin pillar called "Lots Wife" that collapsed into the sea back in the 18th Century




That is the first view you get and yes that is a lighthouse at the end, however it has been automatic since 1994.

The "battery" I mentioned earlier was just that a 19th century gun emplacement to keep the French away form our shores, expanded later and used right up to the end of WW2, What I did not know was that in 1951, it was taken over to test rocket engines!!




Known as the High Down rocket test site

The remains of which have been preserved by the National Trust



Including a lot of the underground rooms. However as I wandered around looking for any signs of the old rocket test facility I saw this.




Note the black "plant" marked by the arrow.

Closer inspection revealed



20 or so cut off co-ax cables, quite an odd thing to see on a National Trust property.

This end of the battery also gave one of the best views of the Needles, including the gap where Lots Wife used to stand.




All in all a pleasant and instructive afternoon. I took a lot more pictures, hopefully when I sort out connection here I will try to post some more.

I now call the Isle of Wight home


Good luck with all of that Bernie, I hope it
doesn't seem to damp and cold for you there.
Extend good wishes to your Dad from LSM and I.

As I am an ex east coaster from North America I must say: "That area looks good to me...."
