Today’s post includes some contrasty stuff, as you might have already deduced from the title.
Here’s what I saw this morning on I-75:
Can’t be a new Pope-mobile, not in Florida just before Thanksgiving. (Not that the Pope gives two sacred rats’ patooties about the American Thanksgiving. But it is just before Christmas, which is a pretty busy time for a pope, I understand.)
So I tried to get a better look, which required some lane changes and deviousness.
Well, no real help there, except I can see what appears to be a license plate on that yellow vehicle.
Must get closer.
From here, I could read “electric” in yellow text in the black stripe. Look closely on the right side, mostly behind the grate. (Might be easier to see if you click the pic to embiggen it.)
Still not satisfied, I decided to pass the electric-thingy-in-tow and try to kinnear a shot out of my passenger window. Without swerving or crashing or doing anything stupid like that.
Here’s the money shot, so to speak:
BTW, the electric car indeed has an Indiana license plate on it, so I guess its owners wanted to bring it south for the winter/holidays.
Pretty cool, huh?
On the not-so-high-tech front, here’s a shot of the two helmet liners I made, along with the two (grey) ones given to me by my LYS owner:
I’ll give them to Deloris on Tuesday night (when we’re both back at work) and she’ll pass them on to her Marine son, who will select one to keep and share the other three with others in his unit.
Pretty cool, huh?
On the no-tech side of things, here are the boys caught in mid-snoop of the bag containing the four helmet liners just after I’d photographed them:
I’m beginnning to think I was hasty in blaming Smut for the Silken Kidd caper earlier this summer. Chewie is definitely the ringleader. And he wasn’t at all interested in the liners until I’d put them in the plastic bag. Maybe he has an unpacking fetish?
