I was hoping to get another run in, but weather is not looking good and road workers are back.
what a mess, they are now widening road for bike lanes,
or wider for fast Mustangs
all in how you look at it LOL.
Took an 87 year old friend out for her first, and likely her last ride in a Cobra. She has terminal cancer. A couple weeks back, friends and family arranged for her first skydive. When the instructor she was to jump tandem with, was trying to fit the harness to her, he apologized, saying it would not fit her thin frame safely. He was worried that when the shoot popped opened she could slip out of it. I felt really bad for her about that.
[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif]She told me that she had never had a drivers license, or driven a car, and that was another thing on her bucket list. I couldn't chance her driving the Cobra, but asked if she would like to go for a spin in a race car, and she was thrilled.
I picked her up on one of the last sunny days we've had recently. Strapping her in to the 5 point harness, I could see why the skydive instructor would be concerned. She was always been just a little thing, maybe 5'2" and 100 lbs, but with her illness, her appetite has been poor, so she's even smaller. We cruised some back country roads, and then a run down along the seashore, on our coastal highway. I gave the Cobra a some throttle a couple of times, and she smiled like crazy. After returning her home, she thanked me, and gave me a big hug, and said that will make for a great memory..Her Son told me a few days later, she can't stop talking about the ride..[/FONT]
After that run, I topped up the tank. added some fuel stabilizer, and put the snake to bed for the winter. Hoping for an early spring..
