This is Shawna's dad's 32' Ford. He rebuilt it himself, painted it himself, and completely restored this car to an amazing state. It was the highlight of the evening at Imports@CPP. That, and the fact that he took people on joy rides int he back of his car.
This was the end to my Friday. After succeeding at my first attempt at making Boston Cream Pie (recipe coming soon), and not scrambling the eggs while making the custard, I decided to hang out with some friends. This was also a celebration, in that Sierra's car window was back in its proper place. From left to right: Wyder's Pear Cider, some Stout + Wyder's Pear Cider, Irish Pear (Wyder's Pear Cider + some red ale), Irish Root Beer (Jameson Irish Whiskey + Bailey's Irish Cream + Butterscotch Schnapps + BJ's handcrafted Root Beer). The root beer was DELICIOUS! It tasted like an actual root beer that I would put in my ice cream floats. It would h ave had tasted a little bit better if there had been more whiskey in it, you know, just to give it that kick...and that extra fun ;)
The beginning of my Saturday. I accompanied Alex and Engineers Without Borders - Cal Poly Pomona Chapter in volunteering with the TreePeople. We went to the Santa Monica Mountains and helped restore an area plowed to prevent wildfires. As time progressed, people have come to realize that the area they had plowed gave way to weeds that were much more susceptible to fires than the native plant species in the area are. In turn, the TreePeople are helping by planting various native plants and restoring habitats to the mountain. It was a very fulfilling experience, and I highly encourage anybody willing to give up 3 hours of their weekend morning to plant a tree, and help new life.
