    OK, not gonna give @KennethSwauger any artistic composition ;) but it's one of those Chamber of Commerce weather kind of days in northern New England today, so on my perambulation with Mrs. H this morning (2-mile round trip down to the main road and our newspaper box :p ) I dragged along my camera & snapped a few piccies.

    I'll share a couple few, FWIW :)

    Beautiful property Doc. What is your new camera body?

    Thank you -- but do note that's our neighborhood (none of those photos is our property :p ). We abut the farm & its land shown in the last two photos, and the first photo is across the street from our property.

    Nothin' fancy; the body's is a D5600. Professor Hardy decided that dad needed/deserved a more modern DX-format body :) It certainly does have better low-light performance than the ol' D5000 did.

    I’m still using a Nikon D300 body. I got tired of trying to stay current. I do have several lens for it though.

    I parked nose to nose (I got out and checked) with a smart car and it only comes up to the middle of my doors. 😂 Keep in mind this is a small early 90s Civic hatchback that would likewise only come up to the middle of your truck door (edit: that might be a bit of an exaggeration, I got a pair of 2Bs behind the front seats just fine) and not a comparatively large modern Civic.

    The biggest "problem" with the Smarts is that they're not particularly economical. They are particularly small, so I guess if one lives in the city and has a car and parks on the street, that might be an advantage (but, in the US at least, that's a pretty small market).

    I remember back in my commuting days seeing them on I-495 tooling along at 70 mph or more. I was terrified on behalf of their drivers -- I wonder how they felt in 'em at speed?

    I'm sure they were a lot safer at speed than a motorcycle.
    Safety was their only real asset. A Corolla was a much better
    car for the mpg and practical minded. There's a junkyard I
    drive by sometimes that has a whole section dedicated to these cars.

    For just a minute I felt like I was in a 1950s Cadillac land yacht. Until I pulled back out into traffic and was reminded, nope my car is still tiny, just not ultra tiny.

    1) That is true (re: safety), now that you mention it (I had conveniently forgotten that!) -- but the wheelbase is so short, and they seem so (comparatively) tall and narrow. I have to imagine (??) they're a bit skittish at speed (or in a crosswind).

    2) I am trying to understand why any junkyard could have acquired a whole section's worth" of them :p

    I agree - you’d think the junkyard could keep their “Smart” car inventory in a couple file cabinets...

    Seriously though, I would think that most wrecked Smart cars end up in the cemetery, as it is probably impossible to extract the driver from the wreckage. It DOES save money on a coffin though...

    Nope! Traffic is someone else's problem. I'm CBP, and I think you are thinking of our CBP Air and Marine guys. I only get to go out with them a couple times a year. They come up from Ft Pierce.

    For Wed I think I may go out in my father in laws boat. If not we will just watch from our roof. Traffic is going to be crazy and insane.

Basically they shinny up the column like a monkey up a tree, then I bring in the beam and they bolt up one side. Then walk across it to connect the other side. Pretty sure they aren't afraid of dying from Covid 19.

    The interior shell was pretty crushproof.
    The rest of the car was poo. So non-running ones
    would be the norm.
