Retro Halloween Contrails

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 213 is Retro . This is a Ford Thunderbird that used to live in the parking lot here.





X Marks The Spot was going to be my 3rd bite of the apple, Carmi's Thematic Photographic 212 is At An Angle. Here are those pics, anywho.







Where in hell is Major Kong?



Finally, here's another Columbus sunset, and it's almost time to start the War on Halloween:

I think they're keeping tabs on you on behalf of the orbs.

Love those retro cars!

I didn't know we had a war on Halloween... I thought Christmas did that for us! (Walked into that big box store that starts with a W today and saw proof.)

What a stunning colour that T-Bird is!

We don't really have Halloween here, thank heavens. Enjoy your ghosts and ghouls..

Magaly Guerrero said...

The sky must know that Halloween is near. Look at those colors!

Which clown's warring on the greatest holiday in the history of planet earth? I'll Green Goblin ya'll back into the stone age.

That car looks suspiciously like a squatter.

Love them all! What war do you wage on Hallowe'en??

The "War on Halloween" is just a made up thing from FAUX News, Gilly.

From my link for R.G. (October 21, 2011):

Maybe the executives at Fox should petition Bill O'Reilly for his trademark slogan "Culture Warrior." Seriously, when was the last time the network didn't wring its hands over yet another perceived assault on Christmas? Or, for that matter, Easter? It didn't really matter whether there was any truth to Fox hosts' claims that there was indeed a "War on Christmas" or a "War on Easter." The mere effrontery of "Happy Holidays" was enough for some to go into apoplectic shock; it even led co-host Gretchen Carlson to demand that Republican presidential candidates be asked what should be done about it.

The holiday season is still a full month away this year. But today, a Fox Nation headline read: "Schools Declare War on Halloween":

Halloween already?

Bob Scotney said...

American cars like these that appear this week are giving us Brits and inferiority complex.

Max Sartin said...

Another great old Ford! Nice pictures.

Contrails? CHEMTRAILS, my friend. Almost as rare and frightening as orbs.

Carmi Levy said...

Those are some freaky-cool contrails - and the nicest t-bird I've ever seen. I always feel a little small when I stand on the ground and watch the planes fly overhead. There seems to be a time, just before sunset, when the contrails are most active in our region. I know it has something to do with the fact that lots of continental airways cross over our neck of the woods. Facts notwithstanding, it's damn cool to watch.
