Mid century dinette

I saw this mid century dinette at an antique mall a month or so ago.  I thought it was so cool but they wanted what I thought was too much money for it, $275 or something like that.  So I left but I did regret not buying it.. Well I wandered back into that shop the other day and they had dropped the price down to $125.  I thought it would be gone and they had moved it.  So I got it for $100.  The chairs are from a later set but I think they match up well.  It replaces my older 1940s set that can be seen here

I know what you're thinking,. the yellow one is cooler and I do love the table, but chairs are torn up and it wasn't a matching set either.  Actually this "new" one is much nicer and more unique.  I can relate to the design better.  It's a little more space age.  It's larger also and more comfortable.  This thing makes me happy just to look at it.

Fishing boat on Flathead Lake

Fishing Boat on Flathead Lake
I took this picture yesterday morning of a fishing boat on Flathead Lake.  When I was a kid I had a little wooden fishing boat with a five horse motor and my dad just turned me loose with it.  I guess he figured he could track me down if he had to.  I spent many mornings cruising along just like this guy, and I always managed to make it back safely.  Sometimes I returned with a few fish in the boat too, and that's what Dad wanted.

Click on the picture to see it large it's much better that way. I reserve all rights to my photography.
