Saturday Ramblings: September 24, 2016 – Grandpa’s Pride Edition

Look what we got this week! A new grandson! Number 5 grandchild. Little JD broke the tie we had — 2 girl grandchildren, 2 boy grandchildren, and now boys have taken the lead, 3-2. But, God willing, there’s plenty more to come. At any rate, we’re rambling up in northern Indiana to see the little bugger this […]

Saturday Ramblings: September 17, 2016 — National League Central Champions Edition!

Step one: complete. Chicago Cubs fans like me are hoping for an end to a 108-year drought in World Series championships this year. I have rambled around for 60 of those years, and it is one of the great longings of my lifetime to see my team become world champs at least once. And what shall I say […]

Saturday Ramblings: September 10, 2016

Well, the sun’s not so hot in the sky today and you know I can see summertime slipping on away. A few more geese are gone, a few more leaves turning red, but the grass is as soft as a feather in a featherbed. • John Sheldon, “September Grass” Ah, September. The harvest begins. The […]

Saturday Ramblings: September 3, 2016 (Labor Day Edition)

In this Labor Day edition of Saturday Ramblings, we honor the men and women who built the intrepid Nash/Rambler/AMC vehicles we feature week in and out here at Internet Monk. Here is a series of pictures from the Kenosha (Wisconsin) Historical Society we found on TheOldMotor.com in an article, “Workers on the factory floor in the […]

Saturday Ramblings: August 27, 2016

The end of August is in sight, and it may be your last chance this summer to take a trip to your favorite National Park (see below), or visit the grandparents, go to the amusement park, or chill at the cabin by the lake. Of course, we’re well past that now where I live. Here […]

Saturday Ramblings: August 20, 2016

Welcome to Saturday Ramblings for August 20, 2016! In case you didn’t know this about baseball, the Chicago Cubs have never been a post-season juggernaut. The franchise has been to ten World Series, winning only two. And the last World Series the Cubs played in was in 1945. Since then, they’ve made the playoffs only seven times, […]

Saturday Ramblings: August 13, 2016

Welcome to Saturday Ramblings for August 13, 2016. Since we looked at the restoration of Elvis’s BMW last Saturday, it made we think, “Surely I can find some pictures by someone who restored an old Nash Rambler!” And that’s when I found Dave Simley’s post, showing how he brought a 1953 Nash Rambler Custom Convertible back to […]

Saturday Ramblings: August 6, 2016

Welcome to Saturday Ramblings for August 6, 2016. We’re going to upgrade from our standard Rambler today to show you a great pic of Elvis Presley’s 1957 BMW 507, now restored to its original glory (and perhaps beyond). Top Gear has a great gallery showing the step-by-step restoration of the King’s ride, which he enjoyed while he was […]

Saturday Ramblings: July 30, 2016

There are a lot of us whose faith in the American political system is running low these days. It’s almost like we’re being sold AMC Gremlins again. Gosh, that was a bad (and ugly!) car. But not as bad (and ugly!) as the political campaign is about to get, now that the conventions are over. […]

Saturday Ramblings: July 23, 2016

Hey, in case you hadn’t heard, some people rambled over to Cleveland this past week for a little party. And next week, a few more folks will ramble to Philadelphia for a different party. Those who drive to these events probably do so in something not unlike our flag-bedecked ’58 beauty above. It’s just that some […]
