  1. Thank you so very much for the pictures. What a nice way to start the Holiday weekend - yes, I know it’s Thursday but I’m retired and the weekend is determined by my mindset.

  2. Ah, the hours we spent on a tire swing when we were kids. In one of the games we played, we would tie a length of rope to the tire, one kid would sit on top of the tire holding the swing rope, and another would stand on the ground and swing the whole thing in an arc using the other piece of rope, finally letting it loose bashing the kid and the tire against the tree as hard as we could. The goal was to not fall off.

    Boys. If boys did that today they would probably be medicated.

  8. Love that Studebaker ... hard to believe something like that was made in the USA.

  9. Not trying to start an arguement, but especially on Labor Day, I do remember when things like that Studebaker were made in USA as a matter of course.

    1. If it isn't made where you live, it's imported.

      Is it better to buy an American brand car made in another country or a foreign brand car made in the U.S.?

    2. To answer Blue's question, the issue is where it is made/assembled, because that is where the jobs are. Each manufacturing/assembly job carries a multiplier between 8 and 15, depending upon the industry. One assembly job supports up to 15 additional jobs through the spending and re-spending of that payroll. A Subaru assembled in Lafayette, IN provides more jobs for Americans than a Ford assembled in Mexico. That's why the entire economy of a town collapses when the local manufacturing plant closes. No politics in this, just economic and historic fact.
