    Got a Lot of Waves Today

    Haven't driven the Midget in a while,& since it was about 75 degrees out,
    I decided to take it for a drive.
    I got a lot of waves driving around the neighborhood.There's something
    about a small British sports car that causes that.The best one was when a Mother
    stopped,& turned here (2yo?) Daughter around to see the car go by.



    On a similar note - when driving in residential neighborhoods,be extra careful,
    as more kids are out,with the schools closed.
    Never do anything you
    wouldn't want to explain
    to the paramedics.

    It was warm in the cockpit.When I got home,I thought I see
    how to shut off the heater.

    Then I realized that I haven't reinstalled the heater yet.First I
    need to get a smaller battery.

    One of the things I love about driving the Bugeye is that small children (and their parents) laugh and point. The dune buggy gets waves going past junior high schools. Brightens their day; brightens mine. And the snow is continuing to melt here. Doug
