Nostalgia time - me and my Vespa



My new Vespa - 1954



Two up for a jaunt - my flatmate comes too



Doing some shopping

Setting off for a tour with my brother

The Simplon Pass on the way to Italy

On the beach at Lake Geneva


Maintenance work - we take this seriously you know!

Hello, sweet Judith! As always, I love stopping by your blog every few days to see what you've been up to. I've started a blog of my own and have listed on it your blog as one of my favorite places to visit. Thank you for all of the lovely photos you put on your blog--I just love them to pieces.

It's sunny now here in Pittsburgh, as we had a terrible storm earlier this morning. Sending you hugs...

Loved this posting! The "shopping" pic just sums up beautifully those 1950's Vespa days.
Nice to see the picture of your brother's Ariel Huntmaster, too

What wonderful pictures. Around about the same time - give or take - I was traveling through the Simplon Pass in the back of the family Jag!

I wonder where you are in Herts. I'm near Hitchin.

Thanks for your comment, dbarnett. I've neglected my blog for a long time, and it's good to have a message like yours to remind me what fun it is write one.

I hope you are going to develop your own blog, and if you buy the Vespa you can post pictures of how the work progresses, and I will imagine you swinging by......
