A Trolly Car Named Desire.

The lights were glowing this morning at 6am from the Tonka Trolly Storing Station, so I decided to see “what gives"?
Scott and Jim were there to move the trolley cars out. A new,

long needed concrete floor was going to be put down in a short time.It was dark and drisseling out and the light was poor, I took what photos I could, then headed off to work.
I am going to go back and visit when I have more time. Both Scott and Jim are experienced hands who know their way around a shop.

Thirsty, Country Look Antiques.
Coca Cola has always taken a pretty middle of the road, Americana approach to advertising. Pepsi on the other hand, recently decided to get into the political environment with, what they thought was an innocuous ad featuring a policeman offering a can of Pepsi to a demonstrator. In a can yet.

The contemporary farm house - Excelsior, Parade of Homes

The style catches your eye. Pickled white, very modern and yet ver Excelsior traditional. It is not alone in this respect. Other similar contemporary farm houses (my name for them) or greek revival style homes are all around. There is a lovely and homey authenticity to these. Excelsior is certainly under a building and remodeling boom.
