We got past Dijon yesterday . Now through Lyon although we had a little detour . Ha Ha . Slept very well after the stress yesterday . All good in France and much the same as U K with people just being sensible about mixing , all wearing mask . It’s great to get back abroad also with Delta son helping with the driving . We have had some snow but now as we near Marseille it’s just raining heavy . I will report back on after the drop and when we are heading home .

Noticeable to meet snow at this time of the year in Morocco or Algeria…

Can't help noticing the correct use of the Apostrophe there. You must be tired.

It probably won't stop the virus but nobody would care.

Seems that John Naylor replaces Paolo Cantarella at the FIA Commission Historique du Sport Automobile. Waiting for Iain's comment about this important change. Something starting with a W for the new year?

Oooh, mais c'est bientôt l'heure quelque part…

A l'heure où nous lettons sous presse, quelque part dans le monde, Mon Ami peut lire dix-neuf heures au cadran de sa montre. Ou plutôt 7 PM. Il pense * cet homme qui attendait qu'il soit minuit * Lambaréné… Mr Schweitzer guettant le dépanneur pour enlever sa Renault, pien tzür…

Il pense aux courbes des jolies femmes, d'Amsterdam, de France et d'ailleurs, ainsi qu'aux courbes de Montlhéry qu'il connaît par coeur.
Bientôt Mon Ami va basculer dans l'inconnu, se lançant en chute (pas libre en ce moment!) éperdue dans une nouvelle aventure, comme il le fait depuis quelques décennies.
Il s'apprête * lever son verre * la santé des belles femmes et de bauble tout en contemplant la première photo du calendrier spécial Mike. Il va imaginer que Iain lui dit "watts ze fuk 2020, lots have happy doys in 2021!".

So………
Bonne et heureuse année, EB-Dave!

PS: Looking forward to reading the postcard dated 2021 you gonna send us, poor people stucked in 2020. Vite, Marty, saute dans la De Lorean!
