No Monday morning blues here…..

Monday morning, quick update.  Rumours of possible rain and snow conditions were heard in casino corners last night; which adds to the thrill of the event.

We’ll be heading to Sedona this morning, and the possibility of presenting my California car with real English weather is exciting.  This may seem to be an oxymoron, as she has languished in the sunshine for so many years, but don’t forget that under that bonnet (really that should read “boot” as it’s rear engined) there beats the heart of a true European.  You can’t sped through mountain passes or tear around race tracks over there if you’re not prepared to switch on the windscreen wipers now and again

I realise that my anticipation may not be shared with all parties – there are a number of convertibles on the  event, including a Lotus Seven that seems to have two speeds (stationary or very, very fast) – but, if we were looking for a more docile driving experience, this is not what any of us would have signed on to.

Off for now, as the coffee beckons!
