I don’t know about you but this year went by quickly for me. There were a few accomplishments, a few setbacks and a whole lot of new stuff that seemed to take up all my time. My driving MG car did get a new starter only to fail mechanically a couple of trips later requiring me to put back in the intermittently working one. What a waste of time. I guess Penny is still employed as my alternate starter for a while longer. My project car is still waiting on me to spend some time with it. The garage is shaping up with a few more shelving units, and unpacking tools moved from the previous house (can you believe it has been two years already?)
Well, here it is – December, and I’m getting ready to put together a few lists – Things to Do list, Things I Want for Christmas list and What Do I Really Want to Accomplish in 2017 list. Maybe I’ll have a little better luck next year.

See you on the road…
