    Com’on Dave, you know better. The pics of the Swedish family contain no people of color. Even the cows are all white! I am deeply disappointed and hope the woke do not cancel your site. Lol! (Sorry, couldn’t resist).

    Interesting detail in photo # 3 with the dad leaning on a lard stirrer. We have one among our antiques.
    Also in photo # 10 the location of the blackout drive light from the fender to replacing a H/L bulb – perhaps done on both HLs. Why the whole assembly is missing from the fender on such a well kept Jeep is a head scratcher.

    Barney: I was guessing some kind of butter stirrer, but am not familiar with a lard stirrer. I figured there might be a tiny chance it is a Cricket Bat, but I don’t know how widely cricket was played in the 1940s-1950s.

    Chuck: Wouldn’t that be pronounced “Voke” in Swedish? lol. Technically, the photo is black and white. Since black and white aren’t colors (black is the absence of visible color and white shows all the visible color), this photo covers all the colors of the spectrum and yet no colors, simultaneously.

    But all that aside, please, please ‘wake’ me and cancel this site; I’ve painting to finish, a pond to clean, and, later, a shop to play in once again!! 🙂

    @ Bingo, Lmao!
    @Dave, Haha, you got me, you are absolutely right. Btw, please, don’t even entertain the thought about going anywhere. You may not fully realize how many people you are keeping sane in this crazy new normal.
