Monday’s Mood

November brings us to the holiday season with Thanksgiving and Christmas taking up most of our time. Family and friends get together and enjoy the season. Many of you have put your cars put away until spring and others in warm parts of the country will continue to participate in some year-end events.

Our last event for Woodies is the Malibu Christmas Woodie Parade which is always a fun day at the beach. Lots of New Years Day events are also popular around the country. Here in LA we have several events to keep us active in the winter months.

The winter months are also the time to make changes to the Hot Rod and maybe start on another dream on your bucket list. I may be 78 years old but I never quit dreaming about another project. My arthritis has not been good for working with my hands, but I hope to have some time to start another frame this winter. I still have a nice jig and lots of parts that need a home on a frame. We will see what Santa brings me.

Have a wonderful month and holiday season.

Stay Tooned!
