Heinlein's List

Okay Garry, shall we set to work on Heinlein's List? I'll put off the "die gallantly" for awhile (hopefully a very very long while), but what about the others? We've both changed diapers. What shall we plan to invade? And then we've got to butcher a hog? This would make for an interesting book . . .

I was in Chicago for work on Wednesday; this shot was taken by a friend after dinner after the Blackhawks won their first Stanley Cup in almost 50 years. Building at lower left says "HAWKS," building in the middle has Stanley, building at lower right says "LET'S GO HAWKS." It was a fun night to be in town.

I also had a great time at one of the funnest museums in the country--Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry. Got up close to a U-boat, a Mercury and an Apollo capsule, and some big ole locomotives, etc.

More cars

These cars are all from “The Art of the Automobile” at the Atlanta High Museum (on loan from MOMA I believe). These were taken on my iPhone so please forgive the quality.

Porsche Speedster

Pierce Arrow


Mercedes (this was my wife’s favorite)

Alfa Romeo

Remainder of a Porsche prototype

Bugatti with original ostrich skin seats

Aston Martin




The first Corvette Stingray

There were a few more, but these were the highlights.

Been away for a while.

I apologize. Some new posts will be added tonight.
