No, no, NO — yet again. I would like to own this but it is WAY outside my ‘pay grade’. Next to British cars I am very partial to Caddies and Vettes — and have owned both, with pride. Had two Cadillacs a black (rocketship) STS and a beige (not as fast) STL. Loved them both. IF I ever get another sedan that is not a Jaguar it will be a Cadillac.

This XLR is divine. Yes, I would like it. Will I swap my XJS for it? Doubt it.

Anywho … This beauty belongs to my admirable insurance agent. I have coveted it ever since she got it. It was parked outside their offices in Alton. I had my camera, so I took some pictures because I told her that I will help her sell it.

This is a steal. Just picture yourself, 4th of July weekend, in THIS.

No, no, NO. They are NOT both mine — and very unlikely that they will both me mine. Mine is the topless one (as always).

The other one, which is actually a very dark navy blue, is at a shop on Route 11 in Alton Bay. We had seen it and stopped the day before we got our black one.

Today I had to go to Alton Bay to pick up Devanee and I wanted to see if it was still there. It was. So I had to pull up and take a picture.

Not sure I want two XJSs on my hands. Maybe two XJ8s. But not anytime soon … I think.

We, unashamedly, think they are THE Cat’s Whiskers in the Lakes Region.

We have followed them, starting at Sandwich Fair, for decades.

Now it is NOT like we don’t get about to see bands. I think we have already been to 5 concerts, that I can remember, so far this year.

But we try NEVER to miss an “Annie & The Orphans” concert.

They are always delightful. Unmitigated, uncomplicated, all round fun, fun, fun.

You can’t ask for a nicer, more personable, engaging group of guys. Annie, of course, is unparalleled. Such a wonderful, warm personality.

Go for the music, stay to enjoy them as human beings.

FREE.

Click to access one-minute YouTube video, a photo-montage of 19 pictures I took, with my Canon T3i, set to some ‘nice’ music.


We like so many others have spent time in or around and enjoyed the floral delights of this lovely (little) garden on the banks of Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire — in Alton Bay, next to the public docks and behind the railway station. But until this Sunday I did not know the story of it or know that it was called “Shirley’s Garden” in honor of  local resident Shirley Ferry, 1928 – 1995, who created it many years ago and tended it for years. Yes, there is a bench with the name. But I had not taken much notice of it. We have a lot of benches like that all around this area. But on Sunday when I was going around taking pictures of the flowers (a good way for me to learn my limitations with the camera) a lady, who had been sun-bathing told me I should take a pitcure of the bench. She actually had a towel on it which had covered the name. She took the towel off and told me the story. Neat. So here is a tribute to Shirley Ferry (who could be related to Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music). Enjoy.
