(Sent to me by Matt Paust, along with another display of rip-roaring Old West photos which I might reproduce here. These are, as far as I am able to make out, in the public domain, unless passing them around five thousand times means you gotta get permission. I won't say anything about them because they speak for themselves. I have a major jones for old cars AND a major jones for old Hollywood, so this is pure bliss to me.)

Caitlin's grad: ready to fly!




Caitlin graduates from Grade 7. . . with proud Mom and Dad.




With proud Grandma and Grandpa.




Proud Caitlin!




Grandma made Caitlin's grad gift, the photo frame, out of old CDs. No glue gun, so I broke my budget on that clear packing tape, you know the kind that keeps sticking back on the roll/ripping? Oh well, it turned out pretty good.










Lovely Caitlin.

Run, run, RUN!
