Driveway 45 years later

Post by andyofcolumbusmerkur » Sun Nov 10, 2019 6:45 pm

One of those brisk yet sunny Autumn days. Crimson King Maple dropping leaves yesterday the same as it did 45 years ago. My older brother is 3 in this picture, now he's 48. If the nearly new e30 or the nearly new Karmann Ghia was in the old picture that would have been fine with me, but I was happy to find this long nose picture (an old slide actually) in a old box of stuff. Can't believe my Dad put that rake up against the car the way he did.

Good to see the Maple doing well. The small window panes on the first floor are very attractive, but I wouldn't want to paint them!

If you still have the 911 (912?), you could do a major remodel on the house (not that it needs one)-- or buy a rental property! Unbelievable how those have gone up in value... :shock:
