It’s Been Way Too Long

I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without posting anything on our main site. Truth is, most new posts end up on our other site, Kentucky Hot Wheels. Between that, Facebook, Twitter, etc., there really isn’t a need for a blog style site anymore to keep people up to date on the happenings within the Boyd house. I’ll have to give it some thought as to whether or not to keep this site going or to let it die a slow death.

Long Time, No Post

Our "New" 1968 BeetleWow, I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I posted to the site. Hope everybody had a great holiday season! The past couple of months have been very busy. Unfortunately, my mom fell and fractured her neck on New Years Eve and has been in the hospital and rehab ever since. We’re hopeful that she’ll be able to go home this coming Friday. I’ve spent a lot of time at our other two websites, Kentucky Old Volks Home and Kentucky Hot Wheels. I sold our ’74 Beetle project last week (still have the motor) and within two weeks, we drove to Winston-Salem, NC, Cincinnati, OH and Lexington, KY to look for another old Beetle. We finally found one in Bowling Green, KY and the gentleman we bought it from met us in Lexington and drove it the rest of the way home. It was an experience, total white out conditions, snow and ice, but she got me home safely as Lenora followed behind in her car. Certainly a day we’ll never forget. Anyhow, 2015 has been interesting so far, we’re ready for spring and warmer weather. I promise to post more as time permits!

Kentucky Hot Wheels Web Site

khwapicWe’ve created a new web site named Kentucky Hot Wheels, where all things are Hot Wheels and VDubs. Since we’re avid Hot Wheels collectors and VW enthusiast, what better way to share both of our passions. We’ve added a Classified Ad’s section in hope that local traders, sellers and buyers will use it and avoid other bogus online auctions and classifieds. All ads have to be approved by us before they’re posted. It’s a very easy process. We’ll also be using this site to document the restoration of our 1974 VW Super Beetle, so be sure to keep checking back often for updates. If you see anything missing from this new web site or you can think of a way to make it better, be sure to use the Contact Form to let us know.

Good Night For A New Movie Poster

jawsStill playing around with Photoshop CS6. One of my favorite movies of all time! Wonder if it could really be rebooted without being too cheesy? Jaws, 1975.

Another Movie Poster

Just Another Movie Poster
