"A Day to Reflect"


Very Bad news was announced yesterday... after 53 years in Evansville, the Whirlpool Plant is shipping their refrigerator production to Mexico by June 2010 affecting 1,100 to 1,400 employees.

I have nothing else for today's blog, so I thought I would just share some photos from the Frog Follies to let us reflect on a lighter side of life. The event features over 5,000 street rods from everywhere. It is sponsored by the Eville Iron & Street Rod Club and this is the 35th. Annual event. Evansville hosts one of the largest of these shows! It becomes a giant invasion of the city's motels, restuarants & streets. It is difficult to go far without seeing one cruising along or parked somewhere. The first photo was taken at Willard Library (we stopped in to return some books on our way to see the street rods at the 4-H Center). Note the car parked next to my 2007 Pontiac Vibe. The license plate reads "N2 RODDN." Click on the images to get a larger image.

There are lots of stuffed frogs, signs & other items in the shape or form of frogs at the Frog Follies! Check out the sign in front.

This is one of hundreds of cool hood ornaments.

All of the rest of the photos emphasize the huge array of colors!

This last one is a very bright pink for the Cure of Breast Cancer. It is a Studebaker Champion. Evansville once had a Studebaker production line.
