Right. After almost two weeks we are back to building with the car. Tonight I remounted and refitted a lot of stuff at the engine. Tomorrow it will be cleaning and rinsing the various parts and hopefully a remount of the tranny.

Weird day

It’s a weird day. Had a complex day at work. This afternoon a great conversation. I just returned from the condolence meeting of Joan and now there is still time to work at the car again.

What a day…

What a day… last night ended early this morning due to a great conversation with friends (I was in bed @ 01:30 Thx Fam Niehof!). @ 06:00 my youngest daughter woke us up because it is her birthday today. @ 10:00 my beloved Volvo went out with a big whoosh… The afternoon I was able to store the car in a save place (Made possible by Gait! Thx!). Quick back home to be there for the big bunch of friends/family who showed up for dinner. 20+ is a lot of PPP (patat, pizza & pannekoeken). Thx all!!!
Had a trip down memory lane tonight. Thx Coos! And now my light goes out. Twexit?

A middle aged man bought a brand new convertible Porsche.
He took off down the road, pushed it up to 160 and was enjoying the
wind blowing through his (thinning) hair. “This is great,” he thought
and accelerated to an even higher speed. But when he eventually looked
in his rear-view mirror there was a police car behind him, blue lights
I can get away from him with no problem” thought the man and he
floored it some more, flying down the road at over 200 mph to escape.
Then he thought, “What the hell am I doing? I’m too old for this kind
of thing” and pulled over to the side of the road, and waited for the
Police car to catch up with him.

The policeman pulled in behind the Porsche and walked up on the
driver’s side.
“Sir, my shift ends in five minutes and today is Friday the 13th.”If
you can give me a good reason that I’ve never heard before as to why
you were speeding, I’ll let you go.”
The man looked back at the Policeman and said, “Last week my wife ran
off with a Policeman and I thought you were bringing her back”
The Policeman said, “Have a nice day.”
