A bit of this and that....

I have run across the Willy Nilly meme several times, but never in time to join....just something that kept slipping my mind.  I have no idea why.  I loved Random 5 Fridays, but truthfully, had a hard time remembering to join it.  Hoping I will do better with the Willy Nilly Friday 5!

So here goes....

1.  I would love to own the above rat rod!  If I had it, I would want to drive it everywhere! This was from last weekend...ran across it out in the middle of nowhere.  This was taken through our windshield...

2.  Are you ready for some football!!!!  I am.  At least it is something to watch.  There is so little on TV that we enjoy.  Sometimes I think I could live just fine with Netflix and You Tube.   I have been watching episodes of New Tricks for a while now...even though I have seen them all.  Maybe not all of Season 10...I do like the episodes with all the original cast best. 

Anyway, I just happened to look, and You Tube has the Inspector Lynley Mysteries, and believe it or not, it has Foyle's War!  It is one of the greatest series ever.  At least in our opinion.  It is set in England during WWII, and he is detective.  I cannot say enough good about this series...but will admit to not watching the first couple of years just because the title did not appeal to me.  I only started watching it by accident when I landed on it without knowing that it was it...I was hooked.  Even Roger has watched them all a second time with me.

3.  Did anyone else try the 30-day free trial of Kindle Unlimited?  I tried the 30 days, and actually read several books I would not have otherwise read.  But the ones I really, really want to read were not included in Kindle Unlimited books.  If I am going to pay $9 per month, then I will just buy some of those books.  I only have about a thousand books already, and most of them I got for free.

4.  I am looking forward to the colors of autumn.  I hope for a long, extended fall season this year.  I have never grown tired of that time of year.

5.  Do you like the following song:

It is one of my all time favorite songs....

Okay....now I'm gonna be humming Kenny Rogers' song "The Gambler" all day. {{{smiles}}}

Roan said...

Yes, I like this song. I think my all time favorite song is Havest Moon by Neil Young. Cool old truck! I could live with just having Netflix, too. I can never find anything to watch on regular TV. JD likes Encore Western channel so we must have cable.

How fun to see the "rod"! My husband has a 66 GTO he has had restored. His grandpa bought it for him when he was sixteen. It's really fun to drive. Good job on Willy Nilly.

I am with you on wanting that truck... love it.. and i am listening to the song, have never heard of it or the band, but i do like it.. what i don't like is the fact blogger is jigglig like crazy...
no football for me but i love the season because it keeps bob happy...agree that TV is running out of things to watch.

I'd be right in that rat rod with you. What a cool vehicle.

The picture of the car is amazing. I can see why you'd want to drive it everywhere. An interesting post.

Awesome hot rod! Love the song...they were so talented! I have heard of Foyle's War but haven't ever seen it. Are you watching on your computer???? I just can't do that. Have to be lying on my couch or sitting there hand-sewing while I watch TV. But some computer access is on the TV screen now. We are just "behind." Have a great week, Rose!

Ida said...

Oh my that car is cool. Especially liked the hood ornament.
I don't watch much Football anymore but I'm looking forward to the new season of some of my favorite TV shows.
I had not heard that song before (where have I been) but I loved it. Will check that album out for sure.

Hi Rose, I've survived without TV for awhile now, I get my news from the internet, learn "how to" from You Tube and for entertainment I do Netflix. Love the fancy car in the corn fields picture!

Foyle's War is my all-time favorite series and I have every set on my bookshelf. I'm so glad it's one of your favorites too. I love the old hot rod, and yes I can see myself driving around in one, but alas only in my dreams :)

CDH said...

I'd drive that ride too! I'd love to have an old 50's ford pu.
I like the history channel, that's about all I watch. Don't know anything about netflix. The kids watch that, I have no idea how it works! Lol!
I used to read all the time, now it have no time!
Fall is in the air here too! Bums me out! I hate wearing clothes! Ha!

The guy driving the rat rod looks like he is really having a good time.

I love "Long May You Run", too!
