That's one beautiful XJ. Yellow is by far the best choice for those. I love Yellow on just about anyvcar but I've always particularly liked it on those XJs.

I've never heard of Rock Hill. Could it be Rock Springs? I lived there as a kid when my dad was the editor of the Rock Springs Gazette and I can tell you that a lighted sign may be the least of their problems.

Enjoy the coffee and don't let the sounds of your own wheels drive you crazy😀

It's an easy place to mistake for another..... especially in the morning. Luckily there are very few people who could be offended.

When I was a kid we lived next door to Sheriff Stark. I remember my dad talking to Mr. Stark once and he was telling my dad about a body they had found in the hills.

Apparently they nearly missed it because where they found the disturbed ground they dug down and found a dead dog. They assumed it was a dog grave.

But the someone on the sheriff's department had the idea to keep digging and just another foot or so down they found the human body.

Sheriff Stark said to my dad "so if you ever wanna kill someone I guess the best way to do it is to dig a 6' hole, put two feet of dirt on top of the body and then put a dead dog on there and then cover it with 4' of dirt. 'Cause most people wouldn't keep digging...... Only problem is you gotta kill a dog."

So you can see, lighted signs are kinda low on the list.

Again my saturday morning coffee would never be the same without these threads. Renee and I are here admiring BW's pics and laughing over Sheriff Stark's wisdom.

It reminded me of a story similar years ago, only from a fire fighter, and best I not tell it, not wanting to give anyone a nefarious idea about not leaving any trace of the crime. It sounded pretty convincing.

922 miles today, made Newton, Iowa. Basically nothing to look at aside from tractor trailers as I passed them. Ready to get home.

If I had the gas I would have made Iowa City.

The seat is fine, when I know this is what I’m going to be doing all day, I can just roll. Solo road trips when I don’t have to worry about other’s comfort, are easy.
I am the same way... if it is just me I can push on and only stop for absolute necessity... it makes the trip a lot faster usually and really clears the head and allows me to figure out a lot of things.

Stay safe and push on.

Made it home yesterday afternoon. Odometer shows 2101 miles. Glad I made it as far as I did on Saturday because the weather Sunday was annoying. Wife drove it to work today. Kid is claiming it and taking it to school tomorrow.
