We had a fun night with friends this weekend.
We started with supper at their house. Their property connects to a nature center, and the dining room is ceiling to floor windows so we enjoyed sitting there feeling like we were surrounded by the great outdoors.
While we were eating, these guys came into the back yard to have a little snack of their own.
After supper, we had a the chance to do something unusual. An Antique car club in the area was sponsoring a drive in movie, featuring a silent movie for the antique cars.
Our friend has a beautiful 1929 Model A which we got to ride in to the movie. We've never had the chance to ride in an antique car and we really enjoyed it.
This is his car. Isn't it a beauty?
Do you know how the trunks on cars came to be called trunks? Early cars had actual trunks that could be added. Because they were so prone to rust, it's rare to find an antique car with one like this now.
Here's some of the other cars that were there. Do you see the blue one in the upper right corner? It was built in 1960, which is the same year I was born. I think that makes me an antique too!
The sky was beautiful as we waited for sunset.
Then came the movie. It was an old Buster Keaton movie, complete with the old piano music.
We almost felt like we stepped back in time. Good times!
