This Sunday started off quite nicely. Weather was sunny and warming, my Lady was still asleep, and I was enjoying a very good cup of coffee while reading the morning paper with a cat sleeping on my lap.

The morning was moving along and I wondered if my lady was scheduled to sing at church this day. I finally decided I should awake her up and ask.

“Are you singing today, or are we attending church via facebook” I asked.

A mumbled response followed which I interpreted as ‘not singing, staying home’.

I returned to my chair, an act for which the cat approved and continued to read the paper.

Ten minutes later my Lady rushed into the kitchen stating she was singing but first needed cup of coffee.

We then proceeded to do our Formula1 pit drill to get showered, dressed, and get to the church in time for the service. Normally my Lady will go to the garage and back-out Hoss while I am setting the alarm and locking the door. I was pleasantly surprised to see her sitting in La Bête. Top was already down.

“Humm” my inside voice vocalized. “Quick shower means no church hair. Wonderful.”

We arrived at the church with a little time to spare. She got into her robes, I found a seat in the pews. All went well and we were back in La Bête after the service.

“What a beautiful day” I said to her.

She looked at me and smiled. “Drive, let’s explore. It is too nice a day to do otherwise.”

And that is what we did……. for two hours.

Kept the top up all way up north due to packing , weather was good with only a shower or two. Arrived early so had a look for a fishing spot for the morning ... and then had a top down drive to the resturant ... first meal out in over a year ! And it was fab. Then had a drive on some of the back rds around pitlochry.....think we are off to sit at the end of runway tamora to see the Raf taking off ..should be fun....going the long way round via glenshee ...as you do

We ended up doing the snow road drive today....slept in a bit after a few drams 😋.
No often you drive out and hardly see any other people....by the smell of things the front pads where asking for help at one point 🤭

Top down all day today, no one told me I’d need a cap with my purchase, very red face and head tonight. Still smiling though.:)
Be careful with the sun. At least one member here went from reddened head to developing a nasty issue.
