Almost dusk

"...All had been said,
The unsayable, when your translator joined us,
Our time was up and, brightened, I walked on..."

From "Coevals" by Michael Hamburger

Poor thing! She looks like not just time, but also style has passed her by.

i never heard of M. Hamburger thanks for the link.

and the mylar balloon suggestion worked out great--I have had 3 so far! hours and hours of fun.

Good to see you were able to get out and into the country, where the archaeological finds abound and your camera picks it all up.

Hey folks!

GrannyJ: Actually, she's spankin' new, and the burger joint is by comparison a bit old. I have no idea why they picked a rockabilly chick for their new roof-topper...perhaps it's the presence of the nearby Continental Club, and all the cool cats and kitties there, that did it.

Eddie! How nice to hear from you! :-) Yay for mylar balloons and cat parties! You are most welcome.

S: Oh, I wish I had. I was kinda puny this weekend, so the pic was from a couple of weeks ago, when I went to meet a friend for dinner and had a couple of hours to wander near downtown Austin. Alas, too puny to travel this past weekend, but maybe the coming weekend I'll be back to high-octane and more road trippin'.

I was taken aback by the guitar. I too thought she was a relic of, say, 1964, but the guitar wasn't possible until decades later than that...
