I just recently traveled down to Spokane to pick up a sign that was shipped to Big Daddy Dave's place for me. He kindly accepted it and stored it while I found some time to make a small trip to pick it up. Thanks Dave. So while we were down there and scheduled to go see Dave's Garage in Abbottsford about another sign, we (the "warden" and I)decided to go to the Red Horse Diner in Ellensburg WA. We had the sign strapped to the roof top carrier and just before Moses Lake we noticed a sound and pulled over on a frontage road. The rack strut had come loose and we were in the process of unsuccessfully fixing it when a older lady pulls over and asks if we need help. She offered her husbands tools and garage. Well since we weren't getting anywhere fast I said yes to her offer. So we followed her to her home and got out to work on the rack and thanked her for the hospitality. Then this lady, named Linda, said she needed a diversion as her husband passed away last night! I asked what she was doing helping us in this circumstance? She stated she cried her tears, he had been ill for awhile and that it wasn't unexpected and she needed a break. So she offered her help. So we visited for awhile after fixing the rack and went on our way.
That was an amazing display of good old fashioned neighborly trust and aid, all while grieving for a good husband lost. Restores your faith in (wo)mankind as the news now a days is mostly about people behaving badly. Thank you Linda.
So we motored on successfully to Ellensburg and saw the Diner and had some nice burgers before getting back on the road to Abbottsford BC.

Back in the day, this was Buhler's Buick & Chevrolet dealership on Washingtom Avenue in Port Townsend, Washington. Cars were prepped in the basement of the building and then driven up to the showroom.


Here's an actual dealer inspection tag that was used when cars were serviced there.


Today this building houses Bergstrom's Classic Autos & Parts....and also includes some nice petroliana! Here's a couple of pix.



That nice old piece of iron on the right hand side is a 1928 Franklin - all restored to original & only $59,000 if your're interested laugh
