Desert wind, classic convertables and pools.

Hello, WOW! It is difficult to believe it is already September. Where did 2008 fly off to? We had an exceptionally good Labor Day weekend. Saturday, bright and early we picked up a friend and drove to Las Vegas, across the amazing and peaceful desert.

This trip we switched our Vegas trip schedule and instead of staying in a Hotel, we stayed with a friend. She is a more than great hostess with an amazing smile. Her home is more than beautiful also.

From her home, this is the stunning view after the sun goes down and Las Vegas really comes alive.

We also looked at this beauty on the trip. A 1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL. A classic, this beauty also comes with a snap on hardtop.

She has 93,000 miles, which is quite low for a 20 year old car.

We fell in love with this beautiful automobile. She has some issues that are being fixed. If everything goes as planned, we will be bringing this beauty home in a few weeks.

Hope you had an amazing Labor Day weekend also. Happy Tuesday of a short week. 8-)

Happy New Car! Hope you're happy with your purchase :-) Glad you enjoyed your long weekend. I got burnt in Boston!

That is just a BEAUTIFUL car!
I can't drive a car :( I curb
check in them because I can't see
where I'm going. I've always
driven a truck (or my mini-van)

That pool is nice too! I haven't
been in ours but maybe twice since
the beginning of the summer.
All the band stuff and the boy
having friends over all the time.
Now I'm to tired to swim. I'd
probably drown on the float :(

I can't believe you are stealing my car! Oh wait, there's mine, the white one... sorry.

The car looks smashing. Congrats and have fun!

anthony - Thank you. We do not have it yet. But we are keeping our fingers crossed.

Hope you are not too burnt.

laurie, - Thanks, I think so too. I love to swim. So refreshing.

Jim, - Do you have a 560SL? I just love them. The man we are hopefully purchasing this one from has another one. White, but it is a 1978.

yvespaul, - Yes, I love this style. So classic. Thanks, hope you are well too.

Blondie singing "Call Me" is running through my head . . . you would look mighty fine in that car.

Once again, your photographs are breathtaking.

You look good in that car baby!

I love the interiors of older Benz's!

Looks like a car that suits you quite well. Who needs a hard top when you're in California? ;-)
