Picture Wednesday, 1970s edition

Today's picture was actually taken by my Dad. A few years ago, when I worked in a slide library, I used the equipment to scan over 100 of his slides, taken mostly in the 1970s. I believe this picture was taken in Tralee, Ireland, during the Rose of Tralee festival. It's fun looking at the 70s cars, but what I like the most about this shot are the two people in the right corner. The man is wearing an awesome red plaid cap, and the woman is so striking with her curly black hair and red lips. Over 30 years have passed, and I can't help but wonder where these people are now.

Notes from the woods:
Because I'm in temporary housing, I've been using the public library's wireless internet for most of the summer, despite the run-ins with safari-gear-wearing, barefooted, and inappropriate-shorts-flashing characters. (There's even a man who wears skirts.) Unfortunately, their internet broke last Wednesday, and because there is only one IT guy in the entire state of Montana, who apparently spends most of the week fishing, I'm predicting it will be out for another week. The only way to connect to "free" wireless is standing in front of my TV, balancing my computer on top. It's so fun living in the woods!
For weeks we have thought the cat insane. She would hunch down near the heating grates in the floor, and simply stare. I didn't understand her unnatural preoccupation until one day last week, I heard squeaking. After a careful inspection of all the windows, in which I found nothing, I realized that the squeaking was coming from the floor. Yes, squirrels hang out in the ductwork. "Eh," I thought, and shrugged it off. It could be worse.
