We have another awesome rural scene from guest photographer Tom Miller. Thanks, Tom!
Attention Google+ and Twitter Users
I finally created a Google+ page for this site, if anyone is interested. It will have each day’s posts automatically posted there as links, just like the Facebook page. Please feel free to add that page to your circles.
I also added a Google+ like button to each post, but I don’t like how it’s displaying, so I’m going to try to find a better one.
Twitter users, don’t think I’ve forgotten about you, just because the site’s Twitter feed hadn’t been updating for months. I found a way to get it automatically posting again, so it seems to be good to go now.
And, of course, there is always the RSS feed, for the newsreader folks.
This cool old car was rambling down Wilco Rd. about a month ago, so I took a picture. Then I promptly forgot that picture existed until I rediscovered it yesterday.
Don’t ask me why I named this one ‘Remember When’ because this car is older than me. But I’m sure someone out there does remember the era it comes from.
I went to last night’s Stro’s Wednesday Nite Cruise-In, held twice monthly during the summer at the A&W Restaurant on Washington St. I ended up with more photos than I thought I would (I don’t know why this surprises me, since it always happens), so I’m spreading this out over two posts.
For those wondering, the car above is a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. I know this because it had emblems on it which told me. They did not tell me what year the Stingray was made, but the little sign in the window did — 1964. That was quite helpful. There are other views of the car in the photos below.

Yesterday was the Santiam SummerFest, a street festival and car show held in downtown Stayton. I went to the car show first, so that’s what I’m posting for today. I’ll be posting photos from the street festival tomorrow and the next day.
The car show is always has a ton of gorgeous cars, and I couldn’t begin to get photos of them all. But I did what I could, so I hope you enjoy the beauties below. Click on the thumbnails to see the larger images.
I posted a photo of one of those large farm field sprinkler things (to use a technical term) the other day. The water mist was spraying across the road here and there, which I thought made a nifty effect.
This is looking towards the intersection of Shaff Rd. and Wilco Rd.
By the way, today is the Santiam SummerFest held on the south end of 3rd Ave. in historic downtown Stayton. I’ll be there, taking photos of random things. I can’t promise I’ll stay for long, as I haven’t been feeling well, but I’ll do my best. Look for photos from that over the next few days, and if you have any to share, that would be awesome! Check out the submission page for details on how to send it/them along.
Happy Independence Day to everyone here in the United States! And happy day in general to everyone everywhere.
I was going to run another installment of the hay baling series today, but I happened by the classic car show at the A&W on Washington St. last night, so I’m going to postpone the hay baling until after the holiday photos.
Click on the thumbnails below to see cars, parts of cars, people looking at cars, more cars, and more people. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll never be the same.
Have a happy and safe holiday. Tune in tomorrow, where I’ll either post photos from the parade or the fireworks show, depending on my mood. The day after that will have the other one.
There’s a car in town which always makes me smile whenever I see it. It’s driven by Moe, who has been a guest photographer on here in the past.
Guest photographer Theresa Smith of D’-Tail Pet Grooming took a bunch of photos of his car on Saturday, which gives us an fun glimpse into a colorful person.
Be sure to click on each thumbnail to see lots of close-ups on the car. Thanks to both Theresa and Moe!
Guest photographer Jon Goodman spotted this bit of automotive awesomeness:
Saw this beautiful hood ornament on a 50′s era Buick across from Cascade Pro Auto. They really don’t make cool stuff like this anymore.
No, they sure don’t, and it’s a shame. Thanks, Jon!
