Before we moved, on the list of places I wanted to visit and support was Hayden Flour Mills. Located not far from where we live, they stone mill their non-GMO, organic White Sonoran Wheat. In mid-December, they hosted a Holiday Fair & Farmer’s Market featuring local vendors and food trucks. It wasn’t large, but we got some delicious products: dark chocolate, homemade pasta, small batch salsas, fresh veggies (including carrots that tasted like carrots but had their own personalities), and of course, flour.

But when we walked in, we were greeted by these vehicles, including this great Jeep. May I have one?

    Interesting. The first Jeep looks like someone has taken a Jeep and put a truck bed on the back. The last pictures looks like a jeep from long ago. Who knows. I do like that first picture and I would like to have one too.

    Must have taken a lot of spit to spiffy up that first jeep. 😉

    Those are wonderful. You know I would be all over that crane! What a great find.

    Great doors. I’d like a Jeep, too. Especially one as cool as either of these.

    What great trucks!

  6. These are beautiful, love that first one.

  7. That bottom one reminds me of the Jeep my parents had when I was a girl. We took it camping almost every week-end. It was loud, not very comfortable, but man could she off-road!

  8. Vehicle doors are definitely doors! I love that old Jeep, Janet. What a beauty. I even like that battered old tow truck. That had to have been a fun day. I enjoy looking at old vehicles. Thanks for sharing your photos. Hugs on the wing!

    • Thanks for driving by, Teagan. I’m glad you enjoyed these. There are a number of people near us who have refurbished and waiting-to-be-refurbished old Chevrolet pickup trucks and it’s lots of fun to see them. Perhaps I’ll nab photos of them one of these days.

    A farmers’ market in an artisan flour mill; my idea of heaven. I doubt I’d have noticed the assorted vehicles.

    • They were hard to miss, as they were the first things we saw when entering the area. The market wasn’t in the mill, which would be fun to see, but the grains are artisan and the small number of vendors all had interesting and delicious things. Some of the grains Hayden sells are grown on some of the nearby Indian reservations, which I think is wonderful and a good source of income I would think.

      • Su Leslie says:

        That is great. I’ve found locally grown and milled flour and it’s all I buy now. It tastes wonderful, is organic, and supports a small business.

      • I hope to find more places like this when I finally get to the farmer’s market/s near us. But right now Arizona is leading the nation in the Covid spike race, so I think I’ll be putting that off a while longer. But besides the flour mill, I’ve been supporting Queen Creek Olive Mill since we got here, a win-win. The coffee shop there has excellent coffee so I can sip my mocha outdoors, under the heaters if need be. There’s also a local coffee chain with three stores that I like to frequent, although not frequently, as I don’t drink coffee much. Doing what I can to support local and good.

    Love that firs jeep! Hope he New Year is going well for you:)

  11. Nice variation on the theme, way to keep it fresh! I love this creative approach, and truly admire such stunning vehicles. I’d never dare try to drive such a beauty because I would trash it in a minute.

    That Jeep is cool and in such good shape
    Also seeing the car doors reminds me how some things change and some things have not changed very much – like car doors and tires nkt changed too much but engines sure have – all techy now

    • Yes, much harder to work on a car yourself these days.

        Whew- and almost impossible with some cutter engines eh?

        Be emailing you with the code for Kelvin’s book!
        Janet – thanks sometimes for your very genuine and heartfelt comments on posts. I value your readership so much and sometimes (I say this because you have a great way of spacing out your visits and it reminds me that it is a great thing to do as I visit –
        Frees us up to) and sometimes you seem to appear with a comment that is like a rainbow in the sky!

      • Oh, thanks very much, Yvette. ❤

  13. If these trucks could talk!

    The first one could feature in ‘Cars” (big fan!)
    The second one, my fav, is like a grandpa sitting on a bench 🙂
    The last one must have seen many generations going in lots of holidays 🙂

    Thank you for giving them a voice 🙂
