Day 9 or 10 of our lockdown here in Spain. There is only so many times you can get the wax out. Another layer today...
So glad that I am here rather than back in London.  let's hope we can back on the road again soon.

Stay safe everyone!

  Think of the extra time you have to polish your lovely pagodas

Katie

Fortunately, the Pagoda will not require polishing right now. But I have to get two cars out of winter storage this week. just picked up one set (of two) tires that were stowed away for the snow season. Will get one car Thursday, the other Sunday. The Audi was going to service on Monday, the service dealer called me and wants to do it tomorrow. Asked for their SQ5 loaner....so I may have a little fun driving back and forth.
Other than that, I am using the ample free time to put a lot of odd motorcycle parts from my inventory on ebay. but it seems nobody is ready to buy anything. Our classic vehicle brokerage business has come to a halt. That doesn't bother me. Don't have to deal with anybody or have to travel.

I am coping with the cabin fever with one of the best products that the U.K.- I should probably say Scotland - is giving the world...
Unfortunately, I will have to break the "stay at home' rule soon to replenish my supplies...Unless another Good Samaritan from North East Ohio - hint hint - wants to help.. ;D ;D

I would love to help Mike but my wife is so paranoid she won’t let me out of the house! She does let me go to my brothers to work on my Pagoda so I can’t complain.
