Unexpectedly large turnout for a non designated ‘Paddy’s Run’ Sunday, but welcome nonetheless. Breakfast for some, just coffee for the rest, and glorious sunshine.
As inevtiably happens when you get a group of these old things together, passers by stop and chat. Wayne, a local, walking his dog did just that, and mentioned that he had an nice shiny MGA that he drives maybe once a year. He was duly berated for this, and promptly returned with it. Nice car, but it was strongly suggested that he upgrade to at least an MG Midget. Always good to see Garry Beaton – he usually has to take off to nurture some cherry trees or to fix something that has broken.
A split – John Tran and I went off to Gorge Road to experience lateral G forces, while Whitburns and Brines took a less queasy route to Lobethal whence the twain met again at Amberlight Cafe. Must be MGA Day. Our group firmly wedged this one in opposite the cafe, but the owner soon realised that he was thoroughly outclassed and promptly took off.
And the Brines’ led us all home, just before it got too warm. Six weeks ago, it was freezing cold. So, where were you? Mowing lawns? Cleaning tile grout? Sleeping in? Keep a close eye on the Events section of this website – there will be plenty of opportunities to get some bugs and dust on that Sprite / Midget / Clubman / other..
