Default In the Spring a Young Man's Fancy...

Who doesn't feel this way right now ?

With sincere apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson:

In the Spring there is no salt on the roads,
In the Spring there are clean cars

In the Spring you can drive on any sunny day.
In the Spring you fall back in love with your baby.

Its 50+ degrees outside, I just cleaned up my wheels, polished the exaust tips. I'll be going to the touchless car wash for 2nd annual spring wash so the underbody will get a cleaning after my Winter driving excursions.

The pertinent stanzas from Locksley Hall by Alfred, Lord Tennyson:

In the Spring a fuller crimson comes upon the robin's breast;
In the Spring the wanton lapwing gets himself another crest;

In the Spring a livelier iris changes on the burnish'd dove;
In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.


PS: The curse of a Liberal Arts education: knowing such a stanza exists and using it.

I'm thinking the median Vette owner's age is 54 or so.

Haven't you heard ? 60 is the new 40. 50 is the new 30.

If you're in your 20's then I guess "Ferris Bueler" fits.

I think you have it mixed up.40's are the new 30's and 50 are the new 40's But 50's the 30 Maybe if you're on Human Growth Hormone

And I think unfortunately your artistic craft went over everyones head <- but your positive and contributing so a big to you
