    That's a good idea. First though, I'll need to get a porch................lol
    I've probably put about 150 miles on the car in the past month. It would be more except the weather is so sporadic with rain or some sort so often. When the forecast says "sunny and high of 74, becoming cloudy with a chance of showers in the afternoon", don't want to take it to work.

    Man, I will just pull our babies outside and set em in the yard together for a few hours all the time even if we aren't going anywhere. Sometimes we show off and line em up out front, but other times out back just for the family. Our own little car show. Just for us to sit around on lawn chairs and make a meal, relax, and enjoy. Maybe leave them out all night even and watch the fire light play across them as a background that a camera couldn't catch and a memory that can't be replaced.

    Not much whipping out the past couple weeks, meaning no whipping out at all. It wants to rain at some point every single bleeping day again so there's no taking the car to work. What about the weekend you ask? Well, this weekend it rained most of the day yesterday and today isn't a whole lot different. It didn't rain constantly or even hard but every hour or so,,,,,,,,,,,,,,sprinkle, sprinkle, drizzle for 15-20 minutes and then stop. Lather, rinse repeat, over and over. This coming week,,,,,,,,,,,I don't see a whole lot of hope for any whipping out still, at least when it comes to the Aspen, lol.

    Awe cmon Guys! We saw rain on the radar and took a chance Saturday anyhow. Went to Plymouth Ohio''s 6th annual. Does every state have a Plymouth? It was our first time back since the Innaugural because of rain and other obligations. Great park, great food, great people. Really enjoy that show! We hit several wet sections of road but no rain. Others weren't so lucky but made it also and it didn't rain there for the 3hrs we stayed before heading out after lunch. I had to get up to Michigan. Didn't know what I was buying but knew it was interesting and priced right. Turned out better than hoped for. A newer Predator 212 engine on an old FW Truck cart chassis! Then I met up with my wife at another show she'd gone to with Candy Corn. Sunday we went to the 28th Annual Clyde Grand Prix and street fair for lunch and show. Been to every one. Lots more Mopars there and good food! They even had a vintage cart class in the racing. Didn't get wet again. HOT out and the rain never came til they were done. Another great weekend!

    Wouldn't it be cool if Plymouth WI was in Dodge county?

    I've either been to or seen road signs for a town named "Plymouth" while driving through PA, OH, IN, MI, WI, and IA. Probably other states too and just don't remember offhand. According to Candy Corn the Plymouth in Ohio is only 28 miles away. But she lies. Lol! I should really put the right speedo gear in some day.

    At long last,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,looks like tomorrow the Aspen can come out of hiding, at least for one day. Nothing but sunshine for tomorrow(!!!!!!!!!!). Take your car to work day Thursday. Didn't say it'll be warm (low 43, high 64) but at least it WON'T BE FRIGGING RAINING FOR ONCE and the heater works excellent. Then it can go back into hiding when the rain returns Thursday night. Gotta take advantage when you can.
