This is the staff of FORT LAUDERDALE DAILY PHOTO. I thought you might like to meet the people responsible for keeping you informed of the strange and unusual that is the fabric of our city. Today is our first anniversary! It has been a lot of fun and I've met a lot of wonderful people. I will be taking a leave of absence for a little while to have a bit of surgery. I hope to be back commenting on your blogs in about a week. I won't be able to photograph for awhile, so my posting will be a little sporadic. Contrary to popular belief, I am NOT returning on the mothership to my native planet. So, thanks for a wonderful year and I'll see you shortly!

After viewing posts from around the Northern Hemisphere, it's safe to say that it is cold everywhere. Since temperature is rather relative, our cold will seem down right balmy to many of our Northern friends. The tourist featured above just got into town. He is headed to the beach to catch some rays before enjoying a wonderful Sushi dinner. While our cold seems warm to him, the wind is still the wind;no adjustment for latitude. Sorry little fellow! Better hang on to your hat.

This strange looking vehicle is The Pininfarina "X". It is a concept car circa 1960. It was shot at an "Auto Toy Store" through a window which explains the glare and less than great photo quality. The car featured a wheel in the front and back for steering and two wheels in the middle for power achieving good performance and, for the time period, good milage. The engine had 43 H.P. in a 4-cylinder, 1.1 litre engine. The car never made it into production. While the aerodynamics are interesting, the bumpers and other safety features left much to be desired. For those old enough to remember, it looks like something out of THE JETSON'S.
