Junkyard In Paradise

Saturday I went with the Wife to get a bent rim replaced on her car. We discovered that the wheel on the spare was the wrong size. So we went to a “used auto parts” place to get a new one. (two wheels total). It was quite interesting to me. A junkyard in a tropical paradise. Although it wasn’t my first time, it’s always interesting to me.

If I was a car, I’d be scared if I was diven into this place. Worried that I might never leave.

Heaven and hell, in one photo.

Somebody knows exactly what’s here, and if you need something, they can dive in and find it. Meanwhile, bananas and other lush tropical vegetation grow in the background.

There was also a very photogenic rack of windshields, I’m surprised I didn’t take a picture of them…

Need an axle? How about some brake parts?

Used tires, and vehicles.

Junk to me, gold to somebody whoo needs something here.

Gears and whatnot.

It was a good weekend. Saturday, after the car wheel sorting, we had a good lunch, and spent most of the day out and about, running errands.

Sunday, the Wife did her gardening while I lazed on the sofa, reading my book. Skinny Dip, by Carl Hiaasen. It’s a pretty good book, I’m almost done with it. All Carl’s books are good to me. Funny and incredibly bad and stupid bad guys.

This morning I had a good run AND swim. I think I’m back on track, hopefully. But oh, it was hard to get up this morning.

It’s almost August, and in August, I’m going to the USA to see my mom.

I hope you have a great week!

  1. Building wrecker yards or car wrecking yards. Someone always has the knowledge of what is where. I think they must have a special kind of mind.
