It's really that bad by BigBadMatt
It's really that bad
Just in case anyone thinks this car doesn't look too bad, this should help change their mind. Sunk into the ground, down to the rocker. Door is left open, as if the apparent bullet hole in the windshield wasn't letting in enough mother nature. It would take a miracle to save this poor car. And lest anyone think the owner can be convinced to part with it, use caution. This is a pretty redneck area, and the owner is a trump supporter. I wasn't brave enough to ring the doorbell, especially with the local habit of shooting at strangers. Keeneyville IL 8-19-16
Christine by BigBadMatt
Yeah, i know, this is a Savoy, not a Fury like in the book (though i do believe a Savoy was featured in the film version of Ride the Bullet, driven by David Arquette. It was a Mustang in the book, but i think the big finned Plymouth was a better choice). However, the colour, condition, and creepy scary owner are eerily similar. I've been stalking this car since like 2001, and a lot of people have made some very generous offers for the car. But they have all been turned down, as the car gets worse and worse every year....

Missed my favourite time of the year for photography. Just been too busy, too tired, too lazy, too unmotivated. Barely left the house except to run errands. I have to venture out into the world tomorrow no matter what though. I'm turtlesitting for some friends while they settle in to their new place in Arizona, and the water filter/pump their red-eared slider came with shit the bed. Picked up a cheapo replacement that's meant for tropical fish aquariums, and the pickup is too short. Arg..... Spent two whole days trying to clean the little bugger's tank & everything, now i have to find some PVC or something that'll fit. 
 On another note, the weather here has gone to shit. We are down into the thirties, had gale-force winds, and Lake Shore Drive looked like the avenida de maceo in Havana due to the waves. A fitting way to end my favourite time of the year, and the beginning of the most miserable five months imaginable. Yuck.
 I genuinely have no idea what the point of this entry is. Maybe i just felt like bitching. Or because it's already 0700 and i can't fall asleep. Could be i just wanted to say i'm still here, and haven't given up yet. Or, maybe all three are true. Anyway, hope you all had a fun, safe halloween!
