SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Astra Gnome

A couple years ago, I stumbled across this slide of an amazing 1950s space age show car. Much to my frustration, I couldn't quite read the name plate on the hood and had no idea what it was. In all the car books and mags I've read through the years, this is one dream car of the future I had never seen. But I knew that some way, someday the mystery would be solved.

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Last Week I WENT TO THE ENCHANTED FOREST WITH PEE-WEE HERMAN!

Enchanted Forest of the Adirondacks

Paul-Pee-Wee Herman-Reubens and I were among a small group invited by a mutual friend to visit her family's historic camp deep in the Adirondack Mountains. As fate would have it we were five miles from the Enchanted Forest, a children's storybook theme park now celebrating its 50th year. There was no way I was going to leave the Adirondacks without seeing if the Enchanted Forest is still enchanting.
