Garage Art at the Mason-Dixon Gas, Oil, Automotive and Advertising Swap Meet

If you are anything like us you are always looking for things to decorate your garage walls. One good place to do that is at the annual Mason Dixon Gas, Oil, Automotive and Advertising Swap Meet in Frederick, Maryland. Held at the Frederick Fairgrounds, this swap meet (also known as the Mason-Dixon Automobilia and Petroliana swap meet) allows you to shop vintage garage collectibles for free.

This year the vendors packed two buildings with fabulous signs, oil cans, gas pumps, air pumps, and other assorted automotive collectibles.

A smaller selection of other non-automotive related advertising items were for sale. This vendor had a pretty good collection of Coca-Cola items for sale in his booth.

A few hardy vendors braved the cold rain and were selling outdoors. These vendors tended to have service station items like gas pumps and larger signage.

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.
