keep those good ROCKIN' thoughts a-comin' for our good friend Alton Kelley, rock guy and car guy

(above) Kelley's collab. with Randy Tuten.
This is the famous Diamond T 'doodle bug' tanker of the '30s.

Further to my earlier blog, esteemed rock poster artist and car guy Alton Kelley's been moved from Petaluma Valley General Hospital to California-Pacific Hospital in San Francisco for more intensive care. All his friends in rock and cars are wishing him strength, hoping for a full recovery from major back problems and attending complications.

If you're reading this blog and know Kelley, please post your good thoughts and best wishes to him at: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/altonkelley. Many thanks from me, his wife Marguerite, and his kids and relatives. His work is of course iconic, celebrated throughout the world. Get well soon, Kelley. Rock on, man!

Everyone who's interested in buying used or new heavy construction equipment, check out this site komatpillar.com There are lots of equipment advertised: Caterpillar, Volvo, bulldozer, mobile excavator, farming machineries, and many more. Just contact the supplier and have transactions directly with the equipment's owner.
