Motoring About

When I moved to this country, I landed in a college town where students zipped around on motorized scooters (didn’t see Razor scooters till I went to London and saw business types weaving through the sidewalk traffic in their suits).

I thought about buying a Vespa, especially after seeing Audrey in Roman Holiday, but stuck to my Miele bike, which was better exercise.

Vespas are still close to my heart, though, which may be why, for my birthday today, my family gave me this notebook.

Mr. C says it's red to match the Prince Edward Island soil.

Great gift. I love Vespas - even though I wouldn't ride on one. Not enough exercise and kind of dangerous in the city.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I knew it was coming up but for some reason I thought it was in a few more days. Kxo
