HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY--2012

 The Fourth of July has always been extra special for Dwight........

 Because today it's also Dwight's Birthday!  Here his wifey is busy "pinning" him.....

 With a cute patriotic pin picked up at garage sales.............

 Because when you're a Yankee Doodle Dandy, you have to look the part........

 Even Keekers has her holiday clothes on--if not her holiday smile...........

 And her Mama is always ready with a festive holiday flourish......

 We're all ready to head downtown to Santa Fe's annual Community Celebration for the 4th of July......
Even the three blind mice..............
 So we head to plaza and the car show......

 Where everybody checks out the cars..............

 Inside and out............
 And reminisces--I think they're both 55s...............

 And enjoys the nostalgia of years gone by.....

 And some pretty elegant rides........
 With some pretty cool detailing.....

 And lots of style.....

Even elegant tires............

 Some cars are fairly new............

At least to aficionados like Danny............
 Another beautiful classic.........
 And yet another......

 Both parents in this lovely Santa Fe family were excellent students of mine.............

 Waymon relives his youth..........

 Maybe this guy too...........

 Alma--the cutest little firecracker in town...........

 The grinny sisters.............

Back in the saddle again--Danny again able to use his more complicated cameras.........


The pretty Mama of the Jiron family.......

Pretty cool--the car too................ 

 Red, white and blue..............

 Classy Chassie............

 The owner of the Classy Chassie tells me that Dex "taught him all he knows".....Really...

 More red, white and blue...............

 Even more red, white and blue..............

 Auto or spaceship?......


Another cool grill................

 Always classic white.............

 Under that floppy hat, she has quite an impressive head of hair............

 Rumor has it that the owner of Rolls Royce immortalized his mistress on this and other hood ornaments.........

 "Oh, really?"...........................

 Father/Daughter tag team...........

 The constant auto chat continues.........

 H. O. T.--Hot, hot, hot!.....


I'm not sure how I feel about this display.......
 This 60s Mustang looks pretty natural parked in front of the old High School.......

 You better hold on to her now--while you still can, Chris..............

 Nice paint job.................

 After leaving the plaza, a group of friends from the SFHS Class of 1967 meet for lunch.  That's the Birthday Boy's empty chair--he is taking the picture...........
 THE BEST FRIENDS ARE OLD FRIENDS--more from the Class of 1967..........


So Happy Birthday to Dwight and to the good old USA too!  AND A GREAT TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!
