Still the real thing…

Old Coca-Cola signs are everywhere, including this example from Aruba. It was painted on the side of a building near the old Atlantic Hotel and Villa site.

It’s a little worse for the wear, but still the real thing. Soon there will be 150 residences built in the open area behind this sign. That’s why photos are important, to document what was and what’s to come. Enjoy your Coca-Cola ice-cold.

Bel Air in Aruba

The Chevrolet Bel Air is a classic among automobiles, a venerable name from a proud brand. While in Aruba, you’ll see some cars like this cruising around and I was pleased to come across this one.

That’s style, my friends. Check out all the chrome.

The fellow keeps the shiny parts gleaming and they look great in the strong Aruba sun.

It’s amazing how well this car has been preserved. It’s from 1957, that fifty-three years, half a century, and still rolling.

Those tail fins are almost as big as the rudder on the Cessna I fly. Awesome. That’s when cars had style, before everything became an aerodynamic misfit as opposed to a first class ride. Anyway, worth a look and no better setting than a fine Sunday afternoon in Aruba to check out the classics.

The Graduate

Driving through my neighborhood in Aruba, I came across the Graduate, a fine feline relaxing in the sunset glow.

Just hanging out, literally, this cat is. Ah, cats know how to live: love seafood, treasure an afternoon nap, and an all night sense of adventure. This guy must be pretty well educated because that black cap on his head shows he got a diploma. At least I’d like to think so.

Jules Thin Crust, Again!

A long time ago, I posted about Jules Thin Crust, a pizza joint in Doylestown, PA. This joint deserves another post because the pizza is that good, especially if you’re keeping your gluten and carb levels down.

Above you see the portabello mushroom with carmelized onions on the left and the four cheese special.

Just above you have sausage, onions, and peppers. Yeah, sometimes I eat my pizza with a fork and a knife. Keeps things tidy and shirt fronts unstained. Jules is easy to find, right on the main drag through Doylestown. I’ve consumed serious quantities of this pizza and have always enjoyed it.
