It’s really hard to comprehend that it’s a bit over a year since we moved to Keremeos. We had a game plan on what we wanted to accomplish in house repairs and some other things like our Studio Gallery and most of that has come together with only a couple of minor things still remaining to do. The House gutters finally got done, the Studio and Gallery are finished, the yard looks good and the the 6 cubic yards of dirt from the driveway expansion is now a nice green lawn.
We managed to get in a short trip to Greenwood, BC to try out our newish trailer before we go on any longer jaunts. It worked out well and the HHR towed it without any problems even up Anarchist Mountain. I was expecting the car to heat up a bit but it didn’t miss a beat. Our trip was good and we managed to get some really nice pictures of the abandoned Smelter there. We also spent some time in the Greenwood pool as it was hot like hell in the daytime but cold at night because of the elevation.
We also have been trying to come to an agreement on the purchase of a classic car, a 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe. It’s been in the same family for three generations and has always been garage kept. The original paint is almost like new but the interior is in need of some serious, read in there costly, upgrading as do the wheels and tires. Time will tell if we can wrestle this very nice piece of local Ford History off the owner who has a very sentimental attachment to the vehicle, as can be expected. We’ve promised him we will keep it as original as possible the way his grandfather bought it. Sure hope he agrees because the car is in need of restoration and will end up being crushed as the grandson’s family has no attachment at all to the vehicle.
Staying on a car note. This weekend is “Kars under the K” in Keremeos. We are going to have a Keremeos Photo Club Meetup at the Cenotaph at 10:00 am. Anyone is welcome to join ups and walk around and take some pictures of the cars. Remember to take a hat and some water AND your camera. See you there, it’s a great event even if you don’t like cars all that much.
