It's hard for me to believe that my last post , in November, was about the Fall Funky Finds show and now their spring event is just three weeks away.. Suzanne, the dogs and I made a five-week trailer trip to the West Coast for Christmas and New Years. Over four thousand miles. The '04 Ford Expedition did a marvelous job with no troubles at all. It is now pushing 190K miles. The nine year old trailer had numerous issues. Fortunately, my tool kit was adequate for all repairs and replacements. We sold it about ten days after we returned home. After twenty years of trailering, for business and pleasure, we are through with trailer parks and roadside overnighting.
Besides seeing a lot of highway, we stopped for three nights at Placerville, CA, then spent several pleasant days over Christmas with Suzanne's brother at his home on acreage outside Medford, OR. Then back down I-5 to the SF Bay Area for a week with family there. on to Pismo Beach to meet up with a fellow H.S. classmate of Suzanne's and finally on to L.A. for eight days to visit family and another bridge friend of Suzanne's. Then we retraced our path east on I-10, I-20 and finally I-30 home.
After disposing of the travel trailer, we bought a new (to us) Ford Escape (2016 model) since we will not be pulling the trailer any more. Then we decided we don't want to part with the Expedition, so now we are planning to sell the Mercedes Cabriolet.
Also (here comes the big news), I recently converted my Weebly-based website to my own personal URL and have added an online store front to my Automobilia tab. "gemstonesandwoodworkbybuck.weebly,com" is gone. My new URL is "automobiliabybuck.com." Please visit often. I try to add content every week. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
I am still trying new show venues to find those that provide the most effective exposure for my works.
