Is that at goodwood

No. Breakfast meet at the Departure Lounge Cafe, Alton south of Basingstoke. Started off 3 or 4 years ago with a handful of Alfas and has grown to around 150 vehicles.

Spent the afternoon turning left.  More fun than I thought it would be

Oh the noise of those things. Damn, there are times I just move 'Murica!

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

The Buick was stunning and the star of the show selling for $375 plus 10% buyers premium 😱

A bobby bargain at less than 500 bucks! :)

Think I've found a new hobby, completely opposite to the Exige. 

Bonsai.

Really relaxing and gives me long term goals.

Repotted a few today and added some moss and rocks, slowly learning how to make it like a mini landscape rather than a potted tree/plant 😎

Bought more bonsai starters, some lovely Acer varieties. On the way back saw this. 

Mrs was in passenger seat before anyone complains 🤣🙈

It wasn't toay but last Monday (the bank holiday). There was a clasic car meet at Castle Ashby.  Turnout wasn't great but there was an immaculate Europa S2 with a Gordini twin-cam engine, a Elcat 521 which had been in the same family since new ( original owner, original owner's brother then original owner's daughter) and a white Excel, plus a very smart Lamborghini Jalpa.

I went to Milton Keynes shopping centre today.  That was not what made me happy but, in Debenhams, I saw, in one of the displays, they had a cut out of a red Esprit Turbo.

You should have left your name etc with the window dressers and asked to have it when they were done. Mmmm, are Debenhams open today.

It wasn't in the window but in the store itself.  Not much chance of finding any staff to ask. 😒

Driving home from the better halfs house (140 miles depending on route...) I passed 8008 miles. Sadly the closest parking was at 8011 miles so no childish giggles from me! 

Silver lining - cars been solid as a rock for the last 5000 odd miles. Very happy.

My usual breakfast pretzel from Sainsburys this morning. 20p change from a £1 coin and the machine actually gave me a 20 pence piece. Not 4 x 5ps or 10 x 2ps which is the norm.

Little things, may explain why I love the Just Jack song "The day I died was the best day of my life". 


A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

Passed My annual fitness test second time round after having a cold first time. Gets harder every year. Not sure how much longer I can keep up with the demands of that particular job.

Gradually gaining ground on those annoying jobs that have been holding me back.

Progress however has required me to cut off my nose to spite my face.

Harsh progress but necessary.

After 6 hours of sanding I finally got to add a coat of oil to my live edge table. Very happy
