It’s hotting up around here and I’m cooling down with a good old-fashioned Old Fashioned.
While I’m at it, I’ve been looking through some photos of old-fashioned things I’ve happened across on my travels…. like this vintage Kissel car in Wisconsin.
In Guatemala I spotted this chap transporting fuel the old-fashioned way…
and tried my hand at old-fashioned flirting on joggling boards in Charleston.

It is only the modern that ever becomes old-fashioned. – Oscar Wilde
I’m too old-fashioned to use a computer. I’m too old-fashioned to use a quill. – Christopher Plummer
That car looks really cool.
It was amazing, we were just passing as the owner was out cleaning it, getting it ready for a show. 🙂
Me? I’m also cooling down with and old fashioned… me! 😉
Haha, cheers, AJ!
I prefer a gin and tonic, but I love that truck and am glad I don’t have to carry wood that way!
Yeah, that guy carrying all that wood was shocking, Janet, I couldn’t believe my eyes.

Thanks for another great challenge, Ailsa! Here is my response: https://naomibaltuck.wordpress.com/2013/04/25/tempest-in-a-teapot/
Oh what a fabulous tour around Rye, Naomi, I almost felt like I was there with you! That harbor shot is gorgeous. xxx
Thank you, Ailsa! Rye is a very picturesque place–hard to take a bad shot!
For a long time, bartenders looked at me oddly when I ordered an old fashioned. Then they suddenly came back in style along with real (gin) martinis and Manhattans — a result of the TV show “Mad Men.”
The first time I tasted it was in Virginia, made by my friend’s dad. He made it super strong and it was so hot and humid I was probably a little dehydrated already, so after a couple of sips I was already woozy. Good stuff. 🙂
A nice set for Old Fashioned, Ailsa! I’ll see what I can find….
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with, Sue, it’s such an interesting subject. 🙂
It is, and could be interpreted in a number of ways!
uuuu, so challenging… (for me) 🙂 now I have to think…. if I have something corresponding among my photos.
got it, got it!!! 🙂
I didn’t know there was a drink called ‘old-fashioned’. how funny. lovely colours and focus. wouldn’t mind sipping it.
How perfect for this week’s theme, Klara. Oh and yes, you must try an Old Fashioned sometime, preferably on a hot summer’s evening. 🙂
Three fabulous examples of old-fashioned – that loom is wonderful. 🙂
I never knew they used to sell chips in tins. You learn something new every day. 🙂
My grandma got them all the time.. made sock puppets went to Amish and Hersheys’

Ailsa, what is an Old-Fashioned? It looks enticing, but I have no idea. Love the car and the transport photo! Have a wonderful weekend. x
Here’s my take on this week’s theme: https://drieskewrites.wordpress.com/2015/06/19/travel-theme-old-fashioned/
Marion, it’s a cocktail, usually made with rye or bourbon, brown sugar, bitters, orange and a maraschino cherry. Mmm. Here’s a recipe: http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2014/jul/17/how-to-mix-perfect-old-fashioned-cocktail I love your old-fashioned fireplace; the perfect spot to snuggle up with an Old Fashioned cocktail. maybe? 😉
The whole historic heart of Valparaiso, Chile, is old fashioned, which is why UNESCO named it a World Heritage Site…
How wonderful, what a riot of colour, I love it. I just adore that shot of the hairpin bend street with the skinny little houses. 🙂
It really is a colourful place. I could write a whole blog just about the murals… got loads more photos!

So many old-fashioned things to choose from for this theme. I have gone with a charming old-fashioned bridge 🙂 https://dormousetidings.wordpress.com/2015/06/20/travel-theme-old-fashioned/
Lovely tranquil photos, dormousetidings. I haven’t made it to Bath yet but judging by your photos I would spend an awful lot of time taking photos; it looks gorgeous.
