On a recent trip to west Texas for hunting with my Hubby, I found this Chevrolet G60 in the field. I can’t seem to find a good bit of information on it or the MID equipment which is probably a vendor of PTO machinery. If you have any information please share!
I love finding old “things” that I say are from another life, another time. I see a lot of them in the rural areas where I venture but usually don’t get to photograph them because it would be trespassing and Hubby is not fond of that. So here are a few doors from some old vehicles.
These dolls have been around as long as I can remember seeing them. Now they sit in my mother’s guest bedroom.
On a trip this year to Eureka Spring we had fun wandering around the train yard there. Here are some photos of some of the details from the trains. Enjoy!
Bridges – the old-fashioned kind that are big and have that overhead piece – used to scare me as a youngster. Now they intrigue me. I don’t often get photos of them because I am usually driving.
Hope you enjoy today’s photo!

Found alongside the road in rural OK, this truck served its time in the oil fields of OK.

Again, a few hours early…but I found this one going thru my pics in preparation for an art show. This, if you’ve never seen one, is the shaker for water – they would fill a bottle with water, insert the shaker, shake water on the clothing and use a hot iron – voila! = steaming while ironing! It reminds me of my Aunt Floy – who I told about in my story of how I got started on this blogging road…. Enjoy!

Found these beauties at a tractor and engine club show in Gentry, AR. Back in the woods at the Tired Iron of the Ozarks. A neat step back into Americana and a reminder of our heritage.
While exploring the back roads of rural Oklahoma with my husband and daughter I managed to capture a few pictures that fit into my category of “Another life, another time”. They are relics, if you will, of days gone by and the last representations of the lives of those before us.
