Default Pretty Day here in the mountains of VA

Today was 65 degrees, rain over the last couple of days washed all the salt off the roads, the roads were dry and the pick-up needed to come out of the garage for a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It hasn't been run since early Dec for the local Christmas parade. Drove it about 30 miles and started thinking about the song " On the road again" If it continues to be nice the '29 coupe will get a work out, followed by the AA. Can't wait till spring arrives!

Beautiful here at the top of Virginia, too. I had my coupe at a friend’s place for a few weeks while my son worked on his truck in the garage and I brought it home today.

We've settled into the balmy, stable late autumn weather. Warm days and balmy nights - wonderful for touring and we have a couple coming up. Winter soon though but that doesn't mean the car stays in the garage. It does mean we get away, often to the outback but this year, a trip to the US again.

Will be 80 today in the Williamsburg area. Coupe and Bug will get some road time or I might clean the windows on the house.

Waiting for that to happen here, but it will probably be at least 4 or 5 weeks before it does.

I'm in Bedford county. We were in Williamsburg yesterday, and stopped off at Saylors Creek battlefield and Appomattox. A beautiful day in Old Virginia....

I had the same problem that you had after the new server went on-line. I got a message "upload of file failed."

Before the new server went on-line, I had no problem with photos from the album on my iPad and Mac desktop.
