… I see I haven’t written anything since my August entry last year. I haven’t felt much like writing up the Mantis since then. The car has been out a few times but it’s still two-tone green, dammit. And I need to win the bloody lottery to get it sprayed properly. Fat chance.

Tsk! What a bitter & twisted fellow I am in danger of becoming! I am still lucky enough to have the car, so shouldn’t be inflicting this hand-wringing drivel on you. My next entry will be more upbeat.
