Spring 2012 is now here. Today Tana & I broke our cars out of winter storage and went for drives in our cars. It felt so good to get behind the wheel after 6 months of winter weather. Tomorrow we are both driving our cars in a local poker run with NW Mustangs & Classic Fords. Can't wait for that.

Took a couple pic's of the house while I was at it. I build this place in 2002. Hard to believe I have been her 10 years now.

Rob, love the pics. Thanks for sharing.

The cars look great.

Also, that's quite a piece of real estate you have there.

Beautiful home.

Enjoy the poker run.

It was a beautiful day yesterday and Sat and Sunday is going to be nice too. We have been stuck in a very wet rainy weather pattern for a while now....and it's nice to see it go away. The sun is drying out the ground and the Grass is now greening up nicely. Now we just need the leaves to come out of the buds on the trees. The Pacific NW is a beautiful place to live ! I took some shots around the rest of my yard yesterday as well. We are in a neighborhood of 1 acre lots. 10 years ago the lots were 89K each with gas, sewer, phone, cable, electric and water stubbed into each lot. I bought one and built my shop on the lot. Then when my house sold, I moved all our stuff into the shop to store it there while we lived in a apartment down the street and built our house. One thing I can say is that one of the blessings of being a carpenter is that I have been able to build 2 houses. That sweat equity has allowed us to live in 2 very nice homes. I figure we will retire in this one. It's too much work to start over.

Wow! Beautiful pictures! I live in NW South Dakota and grass is just greening up here so the green lawn is so nice to see. I have been driving the 2012 GT 500 90 mi round trip to work off and on the last couple of weeks. I don't know of any Shelbys in the surrounding area so I cause somewhat of a stir most everywhere i go.

My mom had 5 brothers that settled in the Tacoma area after WW II so I grew up making lots of trips that way from SD. I always was in awe of how green and lush the area is-certainly different from the plains of the Dakotas!

Again, beautiful pictures of your lovely home and cars. Have a great time on your drive.

Getting some mods done on my car and will post pictures soon.

This is an inspiration. I think I have to get my wife a matching Ford GT I'm thinking white with blue stripes. :)

 

Great pictures Rob!

 

Has Tana been on a track yet?

No Track Yet. Tana is just getting used to all the power I added to her car over the winter. She got to put 110 miles on it today during the poker run. I was behind her the entire time and she did great. I know she got into the boost many times when we were up in the boonies on the windy twisties.

There was 16 cars from our local club that went on the Poker run. The prizes were great and afterwards we had Pizza together. It's great to belong to a good local club ! happy%20feet.gif

Very nice! I have a question.

There is a tree/tall shrub in the kidney shaped area that appears to be an evergreen and kida looks like Cousin It from the Adams Family. What is that?

I may have to plant one or two of those here.

 

Love the mailbox!!!

 

Today was really great here just a couple hundred miles east of you. But I spent the whole day at work. Would have been a great day to drop the top and cruise. :(

It's a weeping pine tree of some sort. I planted it 9 years ago.

It was a great Cruise put on by the club NW Mustangs and Classic Fords. Thank you Kerry, Diane, Angie, Mike, John for doing all the leg work. Was GREAT to finally drive the car after a long winter and Mods that Grabber put on over the Winter. Can't wait for the Meet and Greet event and drive. Hope to see many of you here come down for it.

What kind of lawn mower do you use to cut that much grass?

 

Being in Vegas, we have a lot of rocks and dirt to look at, not much grass or trees.
