MAR 31, 22 .. HOMESICK FOR ALASKA .. PART 1


I sit here asking myself : "Do I really owe anyone an explanation for the recent lack of activity here on blogspot?" Perhaps not but here comes one.

If you could care less about the below wanderings of my mind, just scroll down past the dotted line and look at the photos of springtime in Alaska. 

I began a Post here last March the 13th. Was it a Friday the 13th? No! It was a Sunday! So there goes the curse of 'Friday the 13th' being the reason for this long delay in activity here on blogspot.

I know that some, perhaps many, of you do NOT read our other web sites and so you don't know, and possibly or even probably aren't interested in our daily life drama.

And that is as it should be. I began this website back ten or so years ago on October the 22nd 2011.

http://bobbacaps.blogspot.com/2011/10/for-what-its-worth-1-october-22-2011.html

My purpose  being to share the travel adventures (at that time I was over in India) that I have had with those of you who haven't had the opportunity to travel as much as I have. My purpose was NOT to share any personal day to day life challenges. Those are over on dot.net.

In the ensuing ten years, some of you have been with Patti and me (in addition to a number of visits to India) to Hong Kong, South Korea, Mongolia, Russian Siberia as well as to various states of the United States with an emphasis on seeing Alaska where Patti and I reside.

After some 14 months out of the United States visiting Russian Siberia, South Korea, Hong Kong and Mongolia, I returned to the United States on December the 10th 2019.

And then came the Covid 19 Pandemic.  

Little did I know, that when I got off the flight from Seoul South Korea to Seattle Washington and went to the Emergency Room in Seattle the very next day, December the 11th 2019, very ill, that I had Covid 19 which I contacted in either Mongolia or South Korea enroute home. 

So what Captain?

Simply this : I haven't been out of the United States since then so I have had nothing to share about life abroad.

Captain you published 14 Posts in January 2022!

This is precisely why I shouldn't be boring you with all of this nonsense! That belongs over on dot.net!

- - - - - - - - - - - -

Are Patti and I homesick for Alaska? Are we tired of the Arizona Desert?

Spring is beginning in Alaska.

Today's Rhetorical Question : Are we homesick to be in Alaska?















Today's Rhetorical Question :  Are we homesick to be in Alaska?

Tomorrow, Friday (it's not an April Fools Day joke) April 1st we will tell you more.

Smiles .. Cap and Patti

Post Script : Just in case those of you who do not follow us on dot.net are interested, the below link will give you some idea of why I have been idle the past three weeks.

MAR 10, 22 .. LAKE HAVASU, ARIZONA .. THE DEUCE SHOW .. PART 3

Taa-Daa. Here we are at Part 3, the final post of The Deuce Show here in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

We fully realize that not everyone has the time to follow us daily. So if this is your first visit here in awhile, you may want to go back to Part 2 by clicking onto the below link.

THE HAVASU DEUCE SHOW - PART 3

Below are a few photos of some of the Deuce Coupes that more realistically look like the Ford Deuce Coupes of the early 1930's.

The next two photos below show a 5 window Deuce Coupe. Oh Yes, it dosn't look much like the actual Ford Model 18's that came off the Ford Assembly lines back in 1932, because it sure has been tricked-out, but you get the idea.


I did not see this 5 Window Deuce Coupe at the Deuce Show. Patti and I saw it sitting outside of our local Asian Restaurant here in Lake Havasu City. 


The below photos are examples of some of the cars at the Deuce Show that have absolutely no resemblance to a 1932 Ford Deuce Coupe!





More photos of vintage 1932 5 Window Ford Deuce Coupes that I saw at the Deuce Show last Saturday.






The below photos show a really hot 'street rod'.




It may be hot, but it is not a Deuce Coupe. It is more of a Rail Job (a Dragster).

Just in case you haven't viewed Parts 1 and 2 of the Deuce Show, below are some photos that will give you an idea of the size of the show.






On we go to complete Part 3 of this series of Posts showing the Lake Havasu City, Arizona, Deuce Show.





In the below photos, notice the white and blue tent in the background of each photo.






We are going to finish up at this white and blue tent. In one respect, it was a community gathering point for the Deuce Show goers.








And then the concluding festivities of The Deuce Show began with a series of entrants and their vehicles being formally recognized.











And then The 7th Annual Havasu Deuce Show was over and finished.

I sure enjoyed the show and Patti enjoyed quiet time in our Suburban reading a book and looking out at Lake Havasu.
