Beautiful Sunday, Sublimely So

in #beautifulsunday2 years ago (edited)


It has been what I call a glorious weekend! The sun was shining, the flowers are blooming and all is well in my world! I would go as far as to say that this has been a #BeautifulSunday, on all accounts. This is a tag created by @Ace108, where you share your day with Steemit and company. You can read his post here.


Today, I went to a place where adults hang out like kids. No really! It is a pretty laid back crowd and many people come and bring coffee and chat, all the while, showing off their cars. I was happening by and saw this:

She was a beauty! I can only imagine tootling down the road in that, all eyes on you as you grab onto the four-on-the-floor and shift into a higher gear. Looking at the inside, I can see his suicide doors were remounted with the hinges on the inside and as this is 1932, he jazzed it up with those doors. They were not originally made in this year. I believe they were in the 1934 model though. Still, if you don't care about being original, it did add some cool factor to it.

I am not all about "what's under the hood" and especially because he put it together - his way, which is the only way if you are having fun! But, I am sure there are car aficionados out there that will beg to differ. At this point, I will agree to disagree if you do. LOL

The International Harvester Truck was made by the tractor people and it was a workhorse. Not, the tomboy in me would love one of these. I think I just love the old-timey lines in them. Classy looking little thing, isn't she? I am not sure if it had a truck bed in it at one time, but, I suppose it did. So many of them are flatbeds that I see around. Rust is king after a while, I would guess.

The first Harvester was built in 1940 and it looks like this guy did some fancy-dancy edits to his. I still like it! What can I say? I am probably one of those people that has a knockoff Prada purse in her closet and it happy about it.


20190330_181857-1.jpg


And this was what my friend @c0ff33a would describe as a totally random #SublimeSunday. And it was! I even topped it off with swirled chocolate and vanilla cone, waffle, of course. I hope that your Sunday is awesome and hoping we all have a fabulously wonderful week! You know you want to!

For all of these reasons, I am eternally grateful. Don't ever forget what a wonderful world we live in, people. Let's hold hands around the globe and make this earth really spin. Some days, it is not as easy to see, how wonderful it really is. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.


I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

warsan shire

Fantastic shots of classic machinery enjoyed outdoors with glorious weather. I would call that a great Sunday for sure.

I will have to live vicariously through you as the snow is still here and we are a little bit away from them poking up.

I will admit it, the weather was glorious and almost 80 degrees. I cannot believe it was so beautiful! And in saying that, I cannot believe that you still have snow!

Well I did get punished this morning because it was only 30 degrees when I woke up. Mother Nature isn't funny!. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a most wonderful day.

Yes, @dswigle, this car is a beauty, a beauty from a missing world. What was the most beautiful, the car or Sunday?
I have to apologize for an earlier dispute. You're right, the contest confirmed that the fungus is a flower!

I am not sure I understand what you mean? Is it because I didn't include anything but the cars in the post? @bluemoon

No apology is necessary. Oh, Dan. Even I can read into that comment! ;)

!tip

No, of course not. I was wondering if you are a passionate about the age-old cars, so much so that the car, alone, made your Sunday beautiful ... beyond the sun, flowers, clouds ...
Thank you!

No, is the short answer. There are honestly too many wonderful things that made my Sunday beautiful, but, if I put them all, people would get tired of reading, so I just focus on one aspect of it.

I hope that answers your question. :)

Yes, thank you! I know there are many ... Positivism works miracles!

I am not big on the super suped up cars, but that IH truck is cool. We dont see many of them up here. We have a group that meet up at the local Big Boy every Wednesday in the summer. I will have to get some pics and put it in a post. I had a pretty cool 72 Nova and my buddy had a Monte Carlo from 71. Oh those high school days. Good I wish I could have a redo on that!!

Great seeing that reflection!!! I think that shirt is really your color!!! ;)

Oh I want to see pics of the swirled chocolate and vanilla cone!!!

Now that sounds like fun, meeting up at the Big Boy every week like that. The weather probably has a lot to do with those cars. They seem to be more popular in the warmer climates and huge out in the desert especially where there is no rust to be had.

Oh, yes, please!

That will be cool to see some pictures when you do go. I have seen people take amazing pictures of cars and I am not sure how they do it or why they look so good. There has to be a secret to it all.

Would you believe I had a Nova too? Ha! They were built to last forever once-upon-a-time. Now, a car barely lasts until the payments are finished.

Sigh.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving nice words. Appreciated and hey you!! I hope you have an amazing week!

!tip

Oh yeah that is right you did tell me you had a Nova. What year was it? Do you have any photos of yours? I had a gold one. I might have a pic, I will have to see. See we were always on the same wavelength!!!

Hey your photos of the cars are very creative. Of course I have been called impartial before though.

That's the truth of the matter. You are no longer deemed reliable to be impartial. But thank you for the nice words. LOL

I couldn't care less about modern cars Denise, but I absolutely adore antique cars. They are a piece of art including these. So lovely 😍

Isn't that the truth, Lena! Sweeter, sexier and oh-so-romantic! :)

((Sighs))

They are moving art pieces. Thank you and thank you for stopping by!! Love to you and yours (and those fabulous little boys! )

I totally agree and you are most welcome my Dear. Thank you too, they just turned 3 yesterday 😍

Belated Happy Birthday to them! I cannot believe they are three already! Time waits for nobody!

Oh yes they are growing fast! Thank you so much Denise 🌸💖🌸

Hi Denise....I love these vintage cars, they always have a nostalgic feeling as if you go back to the past and get back to its history. I watched the Higwaymen last night with Kevin Costner killing Bonnie and Clyde inside their beautiful car....and they showed too all the while all those lovely cars the same as these ones you posted.

Isn't that coincidental??? :)

I remember Bonnie and Clyde and all those beautiful cars. You have to wonder why they went away from such beauties? I want one just to tool around in, just for the fun of it. Can you imagine? I always give these another look if I pass one on the road. I am pretty sure that they were a luxury item way back when and they were well loved.

And made to last forever!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving such nice words!

!tip

You are welcome dear....I think those times were lovely and the people were so dressed elegantly. Then there was the hat-wrap of the woman driving a cabrio and the head cover flipping on the air....ahhhhh it´s worth dreaming of...Thanks for the tip andbest wishes for the start of a new week...Ciao!

Oh yes! The times for so much more romantic, weren't they? Or at least they seem that way when I am watching it on the big screen.

Ooh your reflect on the car...this made it the beautifulest car of the place... 😉

Hehe! I did that on purpose, of course! Thank you, my friend! You are so very kind and sweet. I don't normally post cars but when I drove by and saw what kind of fun was going on, I needed to stop!

I hope that you had a very nice weekend! It was beautiful and truly spring weather!

Thank you for stopping in on my most #beautifulsunday! Sublimely so!

It takes a real talent to make old cars seems sublime but you did it!

Well, honestly, cars are not in my range of things I take pictures of, but, admittedly, it was a little bit fun and usually I just look because for some reason, they can be tricky (for me) to photograph, They look way cooler than I can make them look, however, I want to thank you for the kind words!

And I hope that you had a beautiful Sunday yourself and did something amazing! :)

Hi, Willow!

!tip

I'm not really into old cars but I drove a '51 Buick, as a teenager, I would like to have back.

Oh how cool! I would love to have my first car back, but then, of course, I am sure that teenage angst would come with it. LOL

Some really nice shots of the cars, I love going to the car Cruise meet ups, looking forward to when they start here which should be really soon

Have a great week ahead my friend

Thanks so much for the kind words, JJ! @tattooedjay

These meet-ups are not truly organized, but, there always seems to be a crowd. They do it year-round here and people wander around and take pictures and chew the fat with each other. It is kind of fun. :)

You have a most wonderful week my friend. I will be expecting my invitation to your last day of work sometime in the future! :)

!tip

There are a few meet ups here regularly each Week, one on Sunday Down Town, One on Wednesday at the Beach one on Thursday at Goodies and the bigger one at McDonalds on a Friday, Last Year I was often later home and missed most of them but this year I hope to get to more of them

and remember I aid Maybe at the idea of Colorful Socks and shorts LOL

Now that's true you said you might, but I'm female in that means that that's a yes in my head!

I guess those meetups are pretty popular everywhere, but they can be fun.

LOL OK maybe then I should clarify, I Might think about, thinking about, considering the very unlikely scenario, where I would maybe ponder the pros and cons, considering of course the weather conditions, which of course can not be predicted very far in advance that I may think about, dang now I have forgotten what I was thinking about to the chances are very slim of whatever it was :)

The meetups sure can be fun and all the ones I have been to they are such a fun crowd of people

Beautiful cars! I hung on the first photo - why don't they do it now?

Isn't that the truth?? The cars looked so fun, didn't they? Of course, there is a huge difference in performance and environmental reasons, I am pretty sure.

However, they are really are cute little things and I could see myself running down the road in one! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!

Oh! See!!! I am good for something! I just actually happened upon this and it isn't a car show but, just a bunch of people that get together to chat.

I hope you do go and take some pictures. They oldies are always goodies! :)

Thank you for stopping by and the nice comment, Ross! I hope you have an amazing week!

!tip

Yes! You are very good! Thank you, you too. : )

Well good! You know I look forward to it!

Cool car pics, not usually my thing either, but it's fun to browse once in awhile. We are near a town that does an annual Corvette show and they come from all over the country to attend. You see vintage Corvettes everywhere that weekend.

Oh now there you go! I am not much of a Corvette fan however, I will say that the Vintage Corvettes are amazing. Those sexy little bodies that they have, oh yes!

There sure is lots of people there who love their cars and put in lots of effort to maintain them.

Funny isn't it? Some people take better care of their cars then they do of themselves. It is really funny what people prioritize, although there are a lot of car aficionados out there.

!tip

Yes, different people have different priorities. :-)

You and I are on the same wave length this week @dswigle. I'm about to post a red convertible classic car I discovered at a car show. Love your wonderful images and viewing beautifully maintained vehicles like this is a sublime way to spend a Sunday. (U & R )

It was a most glorious way to spend a couple hours late in the afternoon. A lot of people gather there because there is a soft serve ice cream place in the same parking lot. I'm not saying that's why I went there but it didn't hurt.

Thanks for stopping by, always and I hope you have a most wonderful night.

So I can just see you wandering through these cars with your waffle cone! What a cute sight :) Certainly a well spent Sunday don't you think? I have been to these shows before and it is amazing the way these car buffs looooove their cars :)

Oh my God! You are so right! I was wondering about with my little waffle cones! That is so funny that you picked up on that! I am guessing because that's what you would do.

I have to admit that there are some real car aficionados out there and they are crazy in love with their cars.

Some of those vehicles are quite something. As a bit of a purist, I'm not sure I like those old beauties pimped! Glad you had an awesome day. That's what Sundays are for!

!tip

You are so right! I am a purist but, I have to admit that if you can't get all the pieces and it's just for fun, I'm good with it. However, the real beauty is in seeing one in its original state and oh my gosh! They are gorgeous when they can find all the pieces.

I want to thank you for stopping by and as always I hope you have a most fabulous week.

WOW...WOW...now you got me going vintage power machines like that i can't resists if there were no women on earth i would be sleeping with them beautiful machines the first one especially that is my baby T-Bucket Ford looks like a 350 Chevy motor with Nitro Oxide Gas Tunnel Rams a real power machine , great you have taken of it.

I have owned a few America muscle cars and still have one back home that my son drives around and takes care of , she's a Pontiac Trans-Am 85 model black in color like the one in that movie Micheal Knight the Kit :)

xv7u1938xh.jpg

Oh my God! You know that doesn't surprise me one bit right? My brothers were muscle car men, and two of them had trans am's, one had a GTO, one had a pimped up Mustang and as you can tell I'm struggling here with names! All I can tell you is that my brothers and their cars we're a couple. But, you know how that goes. They were a couple until a woman came into the picture, and then they had to be a threesome. LOL

You're sure does look like a beauty and I cannot believe that you let your son touch it! For as long as you have been in Thailand, you should have had it shipped over. My feeling is that you will never leave Thailand and you are just going to have to get used to one of those little tricycles. Just kidding. Thank you for stopping in and for the awesome comment that you always leave and I hope that you have a most wonderful week ahead.

My background back home was mechanical engineer and car restorer i had my own shop for twenty odd years and now my son has taken over it so he respects cars like he does with his ladies taken after me...hehe..so i fully trust him with it what am i saying he owns it now i am happy here with my tricycles much easier to get around...lol :)

I get to drive it when i go visit home.

Well that sounds fair! And you should note that I am not making fun of tricycles because oh, I am sure that you are more fit living Where You Are using your walking skills or your biking skills!

That is true that's why i didn't import the car over here the taxes were going to be 300 % so yeah i prefer walking or biking because as you said it keeps me fit and i get to see more if i got to go out of town i just hire a car :)

The old ones are the best I keep telling everyone, while hobbling around looking disheveled and generally worn out.

Anyway, what a beauty - so much stile, poise and grace. The old flat bed truck isn’t half bad either.

Swirled chocolate and vanilla cone, now that sounds truly #Sublime - although I hope Paul didn’t notice I know he’d be jealous 😋
