My Dad, Joe Smith

This is a painting that David Uhl Studio's painted for the Harley Davidson Museum that my Dad {Joe Smith/Granddaddy Joe Smith/King Rat} used to race with the suicide shift.  Done from a black/white old photo with my Dad explaining the colors.

1970-Drag racing

My Dad's drag racing career supported all of us for many years, it was his favorite job.  Lots of traveling to different places during part of school and through summer.

1st photo shows what my Mom and I wore, look at those boots.  lol

2nd photo shows me excitedly jumping in air after my Dad won the race wearing one of his racing shirts, we also wore hang ten shirts.  I usually stood on the racetrack a little behind his bike with my arms, fingers and legs crossed for luck.  He fell one time at Irwindale Drag Strip when I wasn't crossing arms, fingers and legs and as a child I thought it was my fault so from then I always crossed them.
My family in the winner's circle with Wally Parks.  Mom and I wearing our matching shirts she had made.

White Space Challenge......Silverwood Lake

White challenge.  I have a really hard time not using all the white space.  A day we spent at Silverwood Lake.  Was such a beautiful day and we even watched the sun set.  Peaceful, lovely day.

Another New Lo, Got my mojo back

The lo's I've been posting are all 8x8's.  The photos are 4x6's that are cut down as small as I can get them.  I haven't figured out if you can make a smaller photo on the canon selphy yet.  So some photos are in your face.  LOL  Me and my two kids having selfie fun on Thanksgiving 2015.  We tend to get so busy visiting and cooking that we forget to take photos at times.

Lo of our granddaughter

Junebuggy wanted a photo of her purple tongue after she ate a grape popcicle, her favorite.
