I think we'll try something I don't think we have had before. We'll try transportation. Anything that carries anything from a little red wagon to the space shuttle! Same rules as usual.

Trains, boats and planes. Cars too. You didn't say it has to have wheels, so there's a number of other things I can think of that would be used for transportation. And transportation for whom? That's another interesting avenue to explore. This could be a fun, imaginative topic. Wonder how many types of transportation I can find around Westwood? But I'm not going to limit my search to just there, hope I'll make the time to visit some different locations to see what I can find.

I guess I can throw something in for this one. What timing. This is from the Camping World Grand Prix of the Glen yesterday at Watkins Glen International. Here is a shot of Scott Dixon in his Target Chip Ganassi Racing car.

A real artist always think out of the BOX.

Nice and well done.

An interesting topic, Glenn. And, congratulations on your win. The rest of this month is up in the air for me, but I'll see if I can't find something to post this month. I really miss being involved in the forums. I'm working on trying to get back here more.
