Always move forward

Behold the sign of the horse
Delray Beach, FL, December 2011
About this photo: This week's Thematic theme is "movement". Even though this Mustang is clearly parked, there's a sense of movement in its front fascia that never fails to stop me in my tracks. If you feel the need to move, too, please click here.
Our son is a huge fan of the Ford Mustang. No surprise, as this iconic vehicle has been the object of desire of red-blooded, American boys pretty much forever. Okay, since 1964. Never mind that our son is Canadian. Last I checked, his blood was red. And there's still something about the design, the brand, the way the thing sounds as it cruises on by, that turns his head in ways no Hyundai ever will.

So whenever I see one, I try to take a picture of it. I'm guessing that in the annals of parenthood, anything that gives you an excuse to talk is a good thing. And since I was red-blooded and near-American once upon a time, too, this is an easy thing for the two of us to just fall into.

Your turn: The inanimate objects that connect us. Please discuss.

Love the Mustang! My friend had one in high school, along with a ton of boyfriends who loved her car!!

I think I'll post one more movement post at some point today... I have a ton of different pictures in which you can actually see the movement... not sure I can get them to post in way that a person can scroll through to watch the movement. I'll see what I can do!
