Hot Snohomish Car Show

Sunday we thought we could beat the heat by attending the Snohomish Kia Ha Ya Days early in the day.  It didn’t quite work out as planned.  We arrived shortly after 10:00 o’clock AM to find the temperature had already risen past the eighty-degree mark.  Hot pavement didn’t fair well with Honey’s little paws but I wanted to see the car show or at least the beginning of it so we walked through the Historic Downtown area to the park just past the Visitor Center.

There were several cars, motorcycles and trucks already lined up and some pretty nice looking pieces of equipment with an obvious bundle of money used up in engine, paint and upholstery work.  I walk though the cars snapping photos of some of the ones I liked and thought about how nice it would be to own the 1956 stock Buick Station wagon that was for sale at $23,000 or offer but I keep coming up with all kinds of other fun stuff I could do with that much money so I quickly dosed any thoughts of suffering in the heat as the folks who owned all these cars were going to have to do for the rest of the day.  I decided we had enough and we headed back to the trailer and the air-conditioned comfort it provides.

I was weak for the afternoon, spending it watching the Richard Sherman Charity Soft Ball Game on television followed by another wonderful hamburger dinner, a trip to the pool for an hour of relaxation in the soothing water and some discussion with some of the older members of the park.  All and all a wonderful day.

Hope all is well and thanks for dropping by.
