HITS (Horses in the Sun) 2015, the international jumping competition, is back in Ocala at the Post Time Farm. Events are scheduled through most of March, culminating in the $1 million Gran Prix event on March 23.
We visited the HITS setup last week. It was rather cool and a weekday so not a lot was happening. But we got some decent photos which we'll post over the next few days.

...this is about 1/4 mile from our house. I don't know why it's posted. No hunting or fishing is allowed, even though there isn't a lake in sight and the only animals are raccoons and coyotes. Well, maybe a black bear or two.
It's an enigma. I'd jump the fence and hike up the road just to see what there is to see but in Florida one can get shot dead for trespassing.

Marco is my barber. Marco has been barbering for many years, the last decade or so here in Ocala. He does a great job and has many great stories to tell.
Marco is also a painter. He's a very good painter. The selections above are his paintings hanging on the wall of the barber shop. He has just completed a still-life and now plans a painting ot none other than Charlie Chaplin.

It you turn right where this young man is standing, you will find the Cactus Car Wash. We've been there several times and they do a good job, but I've yet to pay $6.95. For some reason I never get out of there without spending close to $20.00!
This guy, by the way, was listening to music on his headphones. We could tell because he was jumping up and down, sort of dancing, and the sign was flying every which way!

I do believe, but am not certain, that this is a Pontiac from the late 1930s. Whatever, it has been beautifully restored. Note how the back door opens toward the front of the car. That was dangerous. We always had to watch my grandmother so she didn't open the door when we were driving down the road and get flung into the street!
