Things That Go, or, Seeing Red. Like many , I had a fascination with “Things That Go.” And this was before the books by Richard Scarry. Unlike many, even after seven decades, I never outgrew it. Some of my friends don’t understand, others understand completely.
So here are six photos that have a common theme:
1. Things that Go, the ’s book by Richard Scarry.
2. My first car, around 1968. A Regal Red 1965 Corvair Monza. Four on the floor and a four barrel carb. So cool.
3. My 1946 Aeronca Chief in Burgundy Red, 65 horsepower and no starter. Purchased in 1999. When the cancer started messing with me and hand propping became difficult, I traded for 4. This 1946 Aeronca Champ in Tennessee Red. Purchased in 2012, it had an electric starter, 85 HP, and provided great fun until the cancer progressed and I had to sell it.
5. The 2016 Miata in Soul Red. If I couldn’t fly in the air, I intended to fly on the ground. We still have it, but I’m no longersafe behind the wheel, so Sukey does the driving now.
6. My latest transportation, just arrived yesterday, is this Drive Medical “Rollator” walker in Burgundy Red. It’s not very fast, but helps me to avoid a crash landing. It handles well, the Pitts Special of walkers. I’ve already modified it with an accessory cup holder.
Though the recent “Things that Go” trend is not what I would have preferred, it is what it is. At least I’m still here. And still seeing red. cancerstinks multiplemyeloma rollator aeroncachief aeroncachamp miatand richardscarry miata
