#BrightSquares: Bright Blue Cars Come in All Shades

#BrightSquare Day 21

“As usual for a Squares Challenge month I will be sharing squares daily, and I would love it if you did the same. However if daily sounds too daunting, don’t worry. It is fine to join us weekly or even just pop in occasionally with your squares. The frequency of your squares depends on you and also your blog. All I ask is that your image has 4 equal sides, and that it reflects the theme of bright.”

Prescott Car Show #2: Blue Cars

Are Blue Cars Happy or Sad?

Cars can make you blue,
If they work, fine. They don't work,
You can paint them blue.

I guess the owner showed this blue car what he could do to it, if it kept making him blue. In spite of it blotchy color, the car was bright.

The back end of this ocean of a car looks like a map of an island to me. Maybe psychiatrists could use this car as a psychological test of some sort. What do you think?

As we ambled through Gateway Shopping Mall and reached the caution tape that marked the boundaries of the car show, this early 50s Studebaker grabbed my attention. The bullet nose appeared on 611, 728 cars during 1950 and 1951. Only one of them was at the Prescott Car Show.

My brother and I visited the National Studebaker Museum in South Bend, Indiana, on our nostalgic trip back to our home state. The Studebaker production in South Bend, Indiana started with buggies in the 1800s and moved into military transportation during World War I. They had non-military government contracts for vehicles including the postal service. Unfortunately for my home state, they quit production in the South Bend plant in 1963 .

Beyond the scope of this square, this tiny, low truck caught its owner yawning. Admittedly, I thought it was a little dull, but the hubcaps were interesting and bright.

When we arrived at about 10:00 a.m. the sun was bright and I had to take off my coat. This bright Chevy sparkled in the sun that quickly disappeared behind nasty gray clouds. By a little after 12:00 the Ingraos and some of the less courageous cars were on their way down the highway towards home.

A few of them stayed too long.

Stay tuned for a new color tomorrow. What is your favorite color car? Do you like the new murky green and blue that is popular in the 2021 cars?


Today is Writer’s Quotes Wednesday. The topic for today is Nutrition. I need a lot of help writing about that. My favorite food group is chocolate.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
