Carl drove an hour to meet our group at 7:00am in Abingdon, VA, then led us through some fine wiggly roads on our way to French Lick, IN for MG 2014

Yep, only one that went topless on an iffy morning run! The story on that bumper sticker is that the W.A. stands for Western Australia. Paul Kern & his friend Mike Smith from Australia joined up with PJ's Le Tour to French Lick. Paul was a guest speaker at MG2006 in Gatlinburg, TN. He was the only American to work in the MG factory in the 60s. He used to live in Kingsport & is a past President of our club, but has lived in Western Australia for the last 5 years. The last MG on the right in the pic is Paul's '63 B that he keeps in Kingsport.

Got me there. My son has been egging me to start running again, maybe that's a sign I should.

True story... Standing outside by the pool my younger son (15, football player and very fit) looks at me and says 'dad, you're old and fat.' May be true, but with age comes a bit of wisdom and I realize he is between me and the pool... So, I throw him in. He gets out a bit stunned and I simply say 'It must suck to be taken by an old fat guy' as I walk away.

But, I've been thinking about starting to exercise since ;)
