Odd, watching the local (Jacksonville) news last night there was no mention of rain this weekend.  But, hey, Florida being Florida, weather changes more often than a teenage girl's mind.

Weather channel has been forecasting it for a week, which is very unusual.

Hey, y'all know that Bill Warner, yeah, THAT Bill Warner, is going to be our Guest Speaker this year at Brits in the Ozarks Car Show?  This September in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Ya Know... Some Magazine could take Something British, put it on their Vintage Ford Car Hauler and come to our show.  Think of the editorial content you could get out of that trip.  Anyone that does that, First Beer's on Me.

That was cool. Lil Stampie and I hit the Cars and Coffee first and then decided to do the Concours. Saw Nancy, Tom, Tim, Marjorie and the Lotus. Marjorie was busy talking with someone so I escaped punishment by patio. Amazing cars that I never thought I'd see. We'll probably do a photo dump later.
