Dog in a jacket — Six Word Saturday —

My Six Words:
Thanks for the movie — good popcorn

That would be in the dog's dreams. This little Chihuahua belongs to a friend and they do travel places together like this but I doubt if ever to a movie like this.

Where was I? A Quiz — MidWeek Blues —


Hint # 1: This is Lois, my sister, riding in the back seat. If you recognize the town by looking out this window you have the answer.

Another hint: We ended up at Duffey's antique car dealership. This time I think we had to pay to enter his 'museum'. Every car is in his 'museum' which double as a showroom for interested buyer prospects. The picture on the left is of the men's restroom. I thought you might like the decor.
This picture isn't a part of the quiz. It is a 1950 Mercury Tudor just like the one I had when I was in the Army. Mine did have a sun visor. It liked to go just like Jimmy Dean was driving it. Well, Pvt-through-E5 Jimmy H. did drive it just about as good as Dean would have (he died young in 1955-ironically he was killed in an accident with a 1950 Ford Custom Tudor similar to the one I now have in our garage). [Wikipedia James Dean link]

In 1956 when I was drafted I traded my 1956 bought-new-making-payments Ford Sunliner convertible for a nice paid-for 1950 black Mercury Tudor. The reason was that my car payments were more than my Army pay.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did.
Oh yes, the Quiz. Mrs. Jim and I were in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Last May we were visiting my sister, Lois, and her husband, Jim W, who live just north in Center Point, Iowa.

The girls do their repugnant dance into the night. Ursa encountered a problem. Her bottle was near empty.

Rescue! A fan bought her another.
