Moggy Power

pto452 and I finally made it to one of the monthly meetings of the Cambridge branch of the Morris Minor Owners Club.

The actual meeting was fairly quiet and uneventful: a little Official Business (mostly sorting out date and venue for the Christmas Lunch), a lot of chatting about cars, a bit of chatting about other stuff, and some CAKE (left over from the branch's 1st birthday party, which I didn't go to). It was slightly annoying to be in a real ale pub (albeit only Greene King) and not be able to drink, but a reasonably-priced tomato juice (complete with worcester sauce and tabasco) cheered me up a bit. I was a bit disappointed to see that only one other member actually brought their Morris to the meet -- most people had come in their boring modern cars -- but the one that was there was very shiny, a gleaming white Morris 1000 which I admired briefly on the way back to my car.

I think the drive there and back was probably the most eventful bit of the evening, though, to be honest. Collapse )

Anyway... bedtime now, I think. I need to try to avoid losing all the sleep that I caught up on at the weekend! Fortunately I'm working from home tomorrow, so I don't have to get up too early.
