Official Portraits,

Today, we had our 
'official portraits' done.

 I didn't know, at the beginning, if we would ever make it this far.
 This was taken on 9/7
which is the day I found this tiny thing, his umbilical cord was gone, but still had a small scab.
Here we are on 10/27
He is not completely white, as you can see,
and the ears are colored on the backs, along with color on his tail.

Oreo, who was the largest, when I found him,
is actually the calmest when you pick him up. He seems to be saying something, as I see a bit of tongue.

And here is Peaches, who
is the hardest one to catch, 
and to get still, long enough to snap a picture.
here they are on 9/11 the day I found 
And heading back to bed, after their photos were taken.

Haven't they changed dramatically?

And now for a Huckleberry story...
I had some dog food that I use for treats.
It was in the packages, inside the box, in a chair in the kitchen. 
I found the box in the floor yesterday morning, no packages.
This morning, I find he has hidden part of the packages in the love seat corners.  I suspect he opened and ate at least 1, and maybe 2, before hiding these.

First Car

I stopped by BEYOND THE GARDEN GATE a few minutes ago, and Tete had posted a photo of her first car.  It reminded me of the first car that I guess my name was on the title.  
It was a Plymouth Sport Fury convertible
Mine was Black with red interior.

I took my driving test in that car, and
I had the top down, because I had a bit of a problem seeing out of the
rear  window, with it up.  But, being a funny guy, the tester
made me put the top up.  I had to go up a hill, then, back up, and I will bet that was one of the slowest drives that car ever made.  
The car was a special order car, and had been stolen in Michigan.  When found, the former owner's insurance had already paid it off, and the owner no longer wanted it.  So it was pretty much optioned out, including a set of 3-2 barrels.  I was just thinking what a gas hog it probably was, but at .319C a gallon, we didn't worry about it much then.  

Before that car, I drove this, but it wasn't mine, or at least my name wasn't on the title.
It was not nearly as nice as the one in the picture.
as I remember it had a hole in the back floorboard.
It was metallic blue-green with a white top.

Then there was this baby
1966  Chevelle in this color, and a real metal top, not a ragtop.
Back in the 1960s used cars were cheap so 
it wasn't hard to purchase something that still had a shine on the paint 
for a decent price.
