My mom won them in a bridge tournament and gave them to me for Halloween (my favorite holiday). I think she is a bit puzzled that I use them year round, but she is used to that. They remind me of the Groovy Goolies - did you watch it? All I can say in our defense is that there was not much content in those days, so we could not be too picky.

I got up early to continue my battle with the Vespa. The ebay seller sent me the wrong pipe for the exhaust, but promises to fix it. This is what the ad shows - note the pronounced curve.

I don’t think I need to change the shoes. A good cleaning, and I think it should be ok. What do you think?

I’ll have the Goolies take it from here. Happy Saturday!
