Hippies – Now and Then

Last summer, Mary and I stumbled upon a “Hippie Vehicle” that stimulated a lot of response here on Photoremedy.

I’m happy to report that, courtesy of Main Street in Camp Verde, Arizona, this year we have found what appears to be the four wheeled forefather of the great American Hippie Bus.

This should dispel the notion that any one decade or generation has a corner on producing colorful, unforgettable times. What can you do to make other people smile or to ensure your generation is memorable? Let’s commit to making this the best, most momentous summer of our lives – one that history will never forget!

St. Francis and a Hippie Bus

St. Francis and a hippie bus? I can’t say I ever imagined those two fitting together in the same headline.

A recent trip to central Phoenix in search for highly rated Eggs Benedict, however, led Mary and me to St. Francis restaurant. We then followed up on our wonderful brunch–the eggs were top notch–with a little photoremedy that included the discovery of a couple of really cool vehicles (a 1957 Chrysler Imperial and the front half of a VW Hippie Bus).
