Roll over Rolls Royces

Hood ornaments are so cool.  Silver Phantom Rolls Royces and Jaguars, BMWs and Masseratis are metal sculptures in motion.  Art Deco come to life.  Old silver screen films of the 20s and 30s always have cars with hood ornaments.  Hood ornaments showed style, panache and the wealth of the owner. This link belongs  to the Antique Automobile Club of America which is pretty cool too.

So today when I look at my wonderful car (which is not a Silver Phantom or a Jaguar) I find my very own hood ornament....A squirrel.  A real squirrel!  Not one from this link even though those are cute too.  A real squirrel feasting on an acorn.  I guess we all have to eat breakfast somewhere!  Note to self...put out more squirrel food to keep the critters happy in this weird warm again/cold again weather we are having.

Meanwhile Happy March 1st everybody.
