And by Lotus, I mean the car, not the blossom.
Our friend David, of the Ford GT 500 fame bought a Lotus a few weeks ago and we got to see it up close and personal at coffee on Saturday.
I let David know I thought it was might nice of him to buy a Lotus in blue to match my bike. If I'd ridden to coffee I would have taken a pic of the two together.
Brad was the only one at coffee that got to sit in it and make vroom vroom noises. He's lucky that way.

We haven't been doing much riding lately. Our weather has been waffling between sunny for 20 minutes and pouring down rain for hours. It has been really hit or miss.
Until Monday, then the skies cleared up and the weather warmed up. Yesterday it was 80˚F (26.66˚C) at 4 pm when I got home and today it is forecast to be 88˚F (31˚C). Unfortunately it won't stick around for the weekend. By Saturday and Sunday the rain is forecast to return along with the 59˚F (15˚C) weather. Not cold by any means, but not always fun to ride in the rain.
Basil turned 9 on April Fools Day and just takes life and the weather in stride. He alternates between napping on the sofa.....
....... to laying on the dining room floor waiting for some canned food to arrive in his bowl so he doesn't have to resort to dry food.
He looks ready to starve doesn't he?
