29 August – 5 September 2016: out and about a bit

On Sunday September 4th, I organized the tools, adjusted the brakes, and drove Mini for refueling, in preparation for our trip on Monday.

On Monday, we loaded tools, a picnic, and Babe, Sharon, and I into Mini and travelled about 15 km to our son Allen’s house, where he and his wife Sarah were also entertaining their friends Ryan an Loren, from New England.

Babe was much appreciated, as was Mini: Ryan and Loren sat in her and liked her looks.

Mini did well.  I have learned a new technique: I don’t pull the choke out all the way to start- she starts, and the choke does not get hung up…
