NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building

NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building is where the Apollo rockets and the shuttles were and are built, housed, and repaired until being driven out onto one of the launch pads.

The VAB is the fourth largest building in the world.

Didn't Get Blown Away

Tropical storm Fay practically stopped moving this past week right over Brevard County where we live, and dropped 15-20 inches of rain on us. We had no damage at our home, though many people in the county were flooded out of their homes.

We're fine, but I hate that so many had their homes flooded.

Some areas about ten miles north of us received 20-25 inches of rain.

Our power flickered off and back on a few times, but for the most part we had power and TV, so we did really well compared to many.

Here are a couple of photos of the car that belongs with the wheel I showed in my most recent picture I posted.

Ron Jon Surf Shop is an institution in Cocoa Beach, Florida. It is a huge surf store and is a really fun place to go an walk around.

This is one of two customized cars out in front of the Ron Jon store.

Aside from these photos of this customized Chrysler PT Cruiser, I posted some shots of the exterior and interior of Ron Jon's in the bottom three photos on this post on my other blog last week, HERE.

If you are interested, I have posted several photos of a park in Titusville, Florida with monuments to three parts of the US space program, in my Sunday post on my other blog.

No work on Tuesday.

We don't get snow this far south, but we do occasionally get a "storm day" as an analog to some of y'all's "snow days."

We're supposed to get between 5 and 10 inches of rain.

I'm gonna sleep late, before the storm gets here.

Work crunch going on right now.

I've not had time to work on any new pics, and will do so when I can.

Gangster White Walls

We used to call these gangster white walls. A throw back to the 1920s and 1930s mobster cars that usually had the wide white wall tires that were in vogue at the time. Nothing to do with today's use of the word "gangsta" among the rap crowd.

You don't see them much any more, but this one was on a custom painted car on which this style fit perfectly.
