And the winner is...

Bubba's 2001 GMC Sonoma

John and Theresa Shirley's 1955 Chevy Bel Air Sedan

The weekend finally was nice enough to take in a car show. Too bad the car show wasn't that great. But, you have to get out to be able to figure that out for yourself. The "show" at the Grand Opening of Weis Gas wasn't organized very well. And because of the quirky nature of participant voting I took home the first place trophy! The truck was clean and I scared many of the spectators with the LOUD train horns that I have mounted under the truck bed. Gimmicks work well to earn you votes in peoples choice voting.

After the show I was able to take some photos for our good friends the Shirley's. John is trying to get his 1955 Chevy into a local calendar for 2011. Step one was a good photo to put on the voting site. I wish we had a better background for the photo but you have to work with what you have. This one is a little busy but the road works well. Any decent car photo needs a road underneath it because that is where you expect to find a car. If you like the Shirley's Hot Rod than be sure to vote for them at The Herald-Mail newspaper.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
