1910 Ford Model T, 20 horsepower, top speed 40 mph — in any color, as long as it’s white.

Henry Ford famously said “black”; however, things are rarely black-and-white except in Magaville. A Wiki-dip discloses the following:

In his autobiography, Ford reports that in 1909 he told his management team, “Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.” However, in the first years of production from 1908 to 1913, the Model T was not available in black but rather only gray, green, blue, and red.

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
