Winding it down

Couldn't go to Eddy's Place for dinner last night, because they're closed on Mondays, so we ended up again at LD's Alehouse.  This time we sat at the bar to ensure our drinks were made correctly this time.

When we parked the convertible, the weather was a little threatening, so we put the top up and closed the windows, but we did not latch the top down, leaving about a one inch gap.  Had our meal, and just as we were winding it down, Tom got this feeling that he ought to check to see if it was raining.  It was.  "Check, please!" 

We hurried to the car, then had to dry off the dashboard and console somewhat, but it was no worse off for wear.

Got a late start today, but did manage to go out for ice cream cones after the Dr. Phil show ended at 4:00.  By then the weather which was overcast and raining off and on all morning, had now given way to sunshine.  We took a short drive before heading over to cousin Tom and Bev's where we had been invited for dinner. 

We sat and visited for some time when the weather again began to threaten, so my Tom went out and put the top up and latched it on the Mustang.  About five minutes later it started to gently rain, and then it started to pour, and then it started to hail.  Didn't expect that, since it was about 80 degrees out.

After dinner we went through all the paperwork necessary for the transfer of our vehicle to my cousin and his wife who are now the proud new owners, and who admitted being in a bit of a state of disbelief.

From there we called it an evening and headed back to the Super 8 in Pulaski.
