Dunstable 2007

6 May 2007

May 6 dawned cloudy and threatening in south east Connecticut.  As I was getting dressed to go to  Dunstable I could hear rain pouring down on the skylight is our dining room and I almost said the heck with it and went back to bed.  But then I thought about the number of time I have done just that only to have other fellows say that it was a great day at the show in (fill in the blank).  So I headed out hoping for the best and two hours north of home the weather was quite nice after all.  Partly cloudy and chilly enough to need a jacket.  About half way up to Dunstable I realized that my cap, which I had thought was in my car, was really in my wife's van so the first order of business was to buy a new cap to keep the sun out of my eyes at the show.  Got a nice gray International Harvester cap.  Can't have too many caps, don't ya know.

Dunstable, this was my first visit to this show, turned out to be a nice collection of just about every sort of thing mechanical.  Not a large show but full of friendly folk anxious to share information about their particular interests.
