Do you recall my July 28th blog this summer when I mentioned doing a photo shoot here with harvest trucks running back and forth in front of our house…and the county doing a chip seal?

      I shared your words with WB and he and I both agree that you are a sweetie:) You are so very kind dear Siddhartha Henry…I pray for you often that your mom will find a way to help you feel better in your life…I know that your early days of life before your mom found you were not great but now you have a loving mom and a furever home:) I wonder if they make kitty cars that you can ride in:) Wouldn’t that be cool! Sending hugs and paw kisses from Ellie and Melody and from HRCG and WB!

      Thank you so much Pam and Sam:) I have missed you two, seems this summer kept me too busy and away from my computer! Hoping life slows down a bit. Even after almost 40 years I am always truly amazed at what my hubby does. Some vehicles come into the shop in literal pieces, others have sat behind the shed for 30 years and are full of rust etc. that has to be repaired etc. When they do the frame off restoration they take every bolt and nut off the vehicle, they can have 500 plus hours when they are completely restored…most frame offs take a year to complete. I love seeing what Bill does as he has a gift, the vision to see the car completed and he is an artist. Most vehicles we do have family history, maybe it belonged to Grandparents or parents….one couple stored their Model A for many years after they had triplets:) The wife has given her hubby the car when they got married….it took about 30 years before they could restore it…it was fun to watch the process and see thier faces when it was done:) Sending you hugs and lots of sweet Sammy scratches and rubs:)

      Thank you:) We were totally surprised when Vanessa approached us on writing the article…she was fun and nice to be with. She came one weekend in June and stayed with us overnight…we enjoyed meeting her and also Gwen with the gifted photography. Gwen took hundreds of photos that night in July…in a year we can see them all as “1859” owns them currently. And national is a smile indeed as who subscribes to “1859” unless you have Oregon ties or roots…it’s an awesome magazine:)
