1 demerit for Richard and two demerits for Ted, (an extra for letting him put the top up).

I think a demerit for taking this photo, but only if texting while taking it.

I would tell you to be careful on 25, but it is actually one of the smaller side roads off 25 where I lost my exhaust last year..lol

Phew! Ted was in the neighborhood and didn't eat me out of my house. :lol: However, Richard and Erica missed out having Victoria make them a home cooked meal.
