Weekend fun

Saturday was very hot and humid so we took in a movie in air conditioned comfort.We liked the first Nanny McPhee movie and this one is as good or better. It was a great deal of fun.On Sunday we went to a National Micro- and Mini-Car show up in Crystal Lake, IL. (about a 90 mile drive for us). Here several owners are giving rides around the parking lot to children.By not going up on Friday or Saturday, we missed some awesome and rare vehicles. I was content with the cool things we saw for those who lingered for Sunday (and the weather was much nicer). The car on the right is based on a motorcycle--it sits tilted like that.We spent a couple of hours wandering amongst the cars and marveling at them. Almost all are European--not to many U.S. mini-cars. There really is a bed in the back of the trailer. I have no idea where your feet would go!Sadly, they weren't selling ice cream. I grew up with Good Humor trucks winding their way slowly though neighborhoods, selling ice cream bars.



What great little cars! I saw a messerschmidt bubble car driving along the road the other day! :)
I once went from Derbyshire to London in one, not a comfortable ride.

Looks like fun!

I love your profile photo -- I've been thinking of trying some line drawings in black embroidery . . . now I know it's a good idea!
