Are these two homemade units out there in Q? I've seen the dull silver one before in pictures but a two door Argonsky with two-tone paint? Looks like it belongs on a train.

No I just thought they where neat to post.
The two tone one I think was made for and by Dee Howard the San Antonio Texan that built executive aircraft like the Howard 500.

Q Today

Well just a nother lazy day in Q.Got up around 8 AM(That a good start)set around the campfire with Mike drinking Bloody Mary's till about 10 maybe 11.Then went to town to get propane and fill up on water.Then took my walk, then a nap.Got up to post here.Bob and Lou moved down here with us and tonight dinner is at 5 at their trailer.
The weather today was in the low 60's with some clouds.Next week it is going to warm up to the upper 60's maybe the low 70's that is my kind of weather.
Photos are of the 4CU Airstream Park in Q last night.We have a MoHo,a Classic and a Squarestream,all we need now is a 5th wheel.
Sure hope some of you other Airstreamers out there stop by to see us.Your always welcome.

It is a quite day in Q.But that is what Quartzsite is all about quite,lazy and slow. There have been rain showers off and on this morrning but is starting to clear off now at 1030.Looks like we might get some solar panel electric after all.
It has been so slow that I have been looking at my postings from Jan.and Feb of this year of the big Q
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f382...ime-47340.html
Last night we all had dinner togeather. Bob and Lou made meat loaf and Rice. Mike and Tracy made green beans.I did the chocolate cake for desirt.We all set around the fire till almost 730 PM.I want you to know that is late for Q.
But with the 4CU New Years rally coming soon we need to learn to stay up late or we will have to use New York time to bring in the New Year at that rally.
Live is realy in the fast lane this time of year.The 4CU Thanksgiving Rally,Then the 4CU New Years Rally followed by the 4CU Dead Horse rally in Feb.Heck we dont even have time to Winerize are trailers.Oh I forgot we are in the warm part of AZ no need for that.

More Q History.

Did you know that in the 1904 election in Quartzsite AZ the famous Marshal for Tombston and Dodge City Wyatt Earp was listed as a candidate for constable.At that time he would have been 56 year old.
The Photos are of what I am told was the Bob Lambeth's cabin.He died in the 1980's in a shootout over a mining claim dispute.
The weather has been grate the last two days with temps in the upper 60's.Sitting in the sun is good for the old bones.
Once again thanks to Bob and lou they made a big pot of Frijoles beans and corn bread for all are dinners last night.
I have seen 4 Coyotes the last few days out looking for their dinners.

Q

I can see I have way to much time on my hands out here in the BIG Q while practicing my "SURVIVAL BOONDOCKING".
My thought for the day is where did all the memorable Christmas toy that I got in my youth go.I feel sorry for my Grate Grand Kid that they will never get them as a gift.
Things like.
Chemistry set's
Wood burning set's
Sling shots
Lawn Darts
Lincoln Logs
Daisy BB guns
Erector sets
Lional train sets
Bows, arrows and cap guns that we played Cowboys and Indains with.
Roller skates.
Tinker toys
Swings made from a old tire and a rope.
I guess some are rated unsafe by the "Product Safety Commisson" (Our Governmement hard at work to save us)while other are not Politically correct in this day and time.BUT they sure where fun when I was a kid and I managed to grow old on my own with out killing myself with them.
I hope that the Grate Grand kid will have memorable toys as they grow up to look back on when they grow old.

I had a Barbie addiction when I was young (yes, had the camper and took it out in the yard to play), my Grandfather made me a huge Barbie house out of wood, this thing was amazing and all made right from his hands. I doubt kids get gifts like that anymore.

Having had most of these things, all I could add are a wagon and a schwinn bike...maybe the 22 rifle my grandad gave me when I was 12...an Ithaca top-load single shot

From my on going childhood...

Chemistry set's - Yes, still not sure what I made, but it did melt through the desktop.

Wood burning set's - Yes, I don't think my parents ever realised the damage I did with that one.

Sling shots - Nope, made my own.

Lawn Darts - Nope, most likely a good thing.

Lincoln Logs - Yes, many were personalized with item #2

Daisy BB guns - Yes, and I never shot my eye out!

Erector sets - Yes

Lional train sets - Yes, a big deal in my house with several tracks and trains

Bows, arrows and cap guns that we played Cowboys and Indains with. - Yes, but more fun if you were the cowboy and used the BB gun.

Roller skates. - Yes and ice skates as well, didn't grow up in Phoenix

Tinker toys - Yes, but see item #2

Swings made from a old tire and a rope. Nope, but we did make a rope slide from one tree to another with the rope going through a pipe to hold on to. I am lucky to be alive after several mishaps with gravity.

I, as well, had most of those things although I believe my parents were schooled well enough with me to not 'gift' me a chemistry set. I was fortunate enough to have a mini-bike and then later on a go-kart with a 10 horse McCollough engine. That thing screamed until my cousin got one with two 10 horse McCollough's. Then mine wasn't near fast enough. We had a 1/4 mile dirt track in the back yard that one of Dad's friends sloped the turns with his grader.

Ah, the good old days when you could drink from a green garden hose and not get a fatal disease. You could shoot your cousin with a BB gun in a game of war only because he had one too. When you could shoot the small Lincoln Logs with the wrist rocket sling shot over the highway behind your house. When you could ride your mini-bike down the street and the neighbors would wave and not scold you for making all that racket.
