Never had a convertible

Steve Sometimes in Mexico has been writing about old cars from his past life and it got me to thinking.

Well the no convertible is not quite right. I remember this one very well because I used to loose things behind the back seat where the top retracted to. Problem is I was not of driving age so even if I put on a good show ... the car was not mine. A '47-'48 Ford

That's me and my sister sometime back in the '40's in front of our house in Mountain View California. One of the first housing developments in the area cut out of apricot orchards. Last time I was there ('80's maybe) it was difficult to find an orchard.    What's that is the background ... an old Buick or Packard?   Lots of cars had that old extended trunk from the 30's.

Now, that would have been quite a car to drive -- and own.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
