Al and the Car Show Today

Although my brother spends much of his free time sleeping; nothing was going to keep him a way from the car show today. My son and a group of about 15 build trucks and enter them in car shows. It just happened that one was in our local area so I wanted to take Al.

He was so tired and I wasn’t sure if he could really see the cars as his head hung so low but I know he had a good time. We were able to stay about two hours and then he said his pain was getting too bad. I brought him home and he napped.

I wanted to share with you what he thought in his words as “cool”

    • it was not easy, but I kept telling myself this may be his last chance. I am so glad I went a head and took him. Yes, my son’s hobby is expensive but a nice one


  2. Terry, as tiring as it probably was for you both, I’m so glad you got to be a part of such a beautiful day yesterday at the car show!

    My first car was a 63 Ford Falcon…I wish I had that car also! Being born in 1955, I have to say that I like this year of Chevy also. As for that “purple ” car at that show…wow! I love this color, lavenders and such, just my fav.! BTW, we have owned and operated a auto body shop for 37 years here, and my husband is a master restorer…he brought life back to the 1920 Westcott built here in Springfield, Ohio. It is on display at the Heritage center down town. I was impressed when you said that your son is into this type of work, it’s certainly not an easy job. I know this first hand, I worked in our shop for 17 years doing nearly every facet of the business…except for estimating and book work, my husband is better with numbers than I.


    • my first car was a 1961 Ford Falcon. We are only one year apart. I bet my son would like your husband. I imagine they have much in common!!!! I am glad I took Al to the show. It was the last one for this summer locally. Not knowing our future I didn’t want to miss this opportunity with him


  3. Few sisters or people would sacrifice so much effort to bless & entertain a loving brother as you do! Trust me, I KNOW by personal experience ~ Hugs to both of you angels ~ My prayers remain with you, Debbie


  4. terry thank you so much for sharing these pics with us. i really enjoyed them and it was great you were all able to be out and doing something fun. you really try so hard to make sure he has a good time whenever possible. there is a special place in heaven for people like you.
