Buick Eight

with 2 comments

This 1950 Sedanette isa great looking car.  In the 1950 model year, Buick sold approximately 600,000 cars +/-  that year!  Their rival at the time was Plymouth.  Plymouth won out, but the stately Buick was much grander.

Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse is the tallest in Florida and the second tallest in the United States.  203 steps take you to the top for a great view of the Florida coastline and the Halifax River from Daytona Beach to New Smyrna Beach.

Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse is on the National Historic Landmark list and is one f the few light stations in the country with all the original keepers’ dwellings and outbuilding still intact.

12:34 PM EDT- My daughter is having a baby – TODAY, I HOPE!.  She’s out in San Francisco – and as good as communications are these days – it ain’t good enough for me right now.

My princess has had contractions since very early Saturday morning and she’s wrung out.  Here it is Tuesday!  I can’t imagine the pain and discomfort she’s gone through.  I just hope the little bundle from heaven comes real soon.
