“April showers bring May flowers…” and there is no mention of snow to dampen (pun intended) our spirits in this ditty. So hopefully we will see increased temperatures this month and reasons to get out and drive our LBCs.

I met author Bert Levy at the Swap Meet last month and decided to read his series ‘The Last Open Road’. Our CMGC library has all the editions – some even autographed by Bert – and follows the travels and antics of the main character, Buddy Palumbo. I’ve gotten through the first few chapters so far.

Barney was in town and was able to assist in diagnosing a few electrical problems in my 67 MGB. Now all I have to do is make the repairs. Hopefully I will be able to finish the repairs and the book before the ‘May flowers’ arrive.

See you on the road…
