    I wore an old, ragged UNC sweatshirt and shorts when I walked the cat just now. Yes, my cat and I go for a stroll almost every evening. The whip-or-wills were singing and the pasture was full of fireflies. I'm thinking jacket weather in North Carolina might be over for this season.

    Just got back from the traditional Norwegian Easter cabin holiday up in the mountains, sunny but -3 daytime dropping to -14 over night, modern parka sitting around the fire outside at night, thermals and woollies for skiing. Sure no VLJs but I won't hold that against it, it was breath-takingly beautiful up there as usual.

    yep - off course I need a more period jacket - was the stuff I weared for the testride and price negotiations

    the bike has a s&s carb - other than that (except the handlebars) the shop which restored her used only period correct parts for the mild customization

    We had snow again today but no wind and the ambient temp was around 1 to 2 plus degrees so it didn't hang around. Perfect B-10 weather, which I wore whilst fixing the better half's bike for spring (when it eventually decides to arrive) and generally mucking around in the garden and the shed.

    ATF B-10 today. About 5 degrees Celsius but sunny and was pulling up the mother-in-law's old verandah to build a new one. That's one thing I love about this jacket it's functional but I'm not afraid of using it, and it came through with flying colours even with pulling planks up with a crowbar, carrying them around and nails everywhere.
