Travelogue #3 | I’ve reached the age when everyday objects of my youth now cruise toward extinction. Specifically, a pair of bullet-nosed Ford sedans from the early 1950s rusting in a vacant lot along an Arkansas highway. What’s now home to hornets was once the best dating vehicle for drive-in movies. Big wide seats, no obstructions — a perfect platform for canoodling.

p.s. Both of these photos were suggested by my brother. “You drive, and I’ll be on the lookout for good subjects,” he said. “Let’s see if we can make your blog more interesting.”


[My brother Scott and I rendezvous each autumn in the Arkansas Ozarks. We fish, hike, eat, explore and talk too much about things nobody else cares about.]
