The leader of the group had called me a few weeks back and booked the tour. She had been in Clarksville, my little home town, on an earlier visit and picked up one of my cards, She called and we made a date.
It was the most beautiful day for them. The sun was shinning and the sky was blue and the wind was calm. I was excited to see all the old cars around my house and just knew I felt a Blog coming on.
I had it all planned out, so I thought. They were to arrive at 3:00. I had a friend coming to baby sit the shop while I went and gave the tour. I had our Mayor lined up to give a welcome speech when they arrived. I had made mine and Sissy's bed before I went to the shop that morning. I also picked lilacs from the yard and had them in vases around the house. Made the old place smell so good.
At 2:30 I got a call, thanks to everyone having a cell phone, they were already at my house. My helper had not gotten to the shop and I was worried about the Mayor. I had no choice but to lock the shop and run home. Didn't want my tourist waiting in the sun. When I got there and welcomed them , explained about the Mayor and said instead of her starting the tour, she would end it. We went ahead with the tour and a few minutes into it, here she came. I explained to her what had happened and she waited patiently for her turn. WE citizens of Clarksville, population 420, are so lucky to have such a devoted mayor. She does more than her share to make things special when people come to out town. I am sure she does not get the praise she deserves, so here it is, YAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!MAYOR SMILEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The tour went off well and the car people could not have been nicer. They seemed to really have enjoyed there visit. They asked many questions and seemed to really be interested in the old place. I got the usual UHHHHHS and AUHHHHHHHS and at least one who asked," who cleans this place."
I hope you enjoyed the car club tour as much as they did. Make your reservations soon. Sissy Dog and I will always, turn the lights on, make the bed and take out the trash. Heck, I might even make some sweet tea and set a spell on the screen porch. Happy Mothers Day every one in Blog Land!
