meet and greet

first time back over to the lake to ‘wet a line’ since our return from our trip north.. and my buddies were waiting for me…they just wouldn’t leave they were so glad to see me.. I did  😦

the new Dodge Challenger Hellcat.. muscle-cars are alive

2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat 707hp …a lotta car for $60,990
as a comparison… a new 2015 Suburban LTZ 4×4 loaded is $70k
my new 2013 Avalanche LTZ was $51k.. but that was the last year they were made
my new 1965 GTO was $3,050 .. 360hp.. 3 deuces.. 4 speed but that was when the ‘muscle-car’ era started–the good ol’ days

the drive home

12 hours..  avoided the traffic in Brooklyn.. and on the NJ Turnpike.. but somehow we caught some  just south of the Va-NC border in NC.. down to one lane.. not nice.. lost a half hour or more…you just can’t beat it… weather stayed nice until we ran into a light storm on I-40 headed across toward Wilmington–got to see a double rainbow though..

more walking in Sheepshead Bay

early morning—sure is nice to walk without all the crowds and traffic during the mid-day.. only ones around are the fishermen boarding the fishing boats down at the ‘Bay’.. they sure pack ’em in on the weekends.. these days about 7 boats leave the docks at 7am.. back in the 60’s 25-30 boats a day went out…
