Date line Merritt BC….

The area across from the Royal Bank on Garcia Street is often an area of parking for waiting pairs. Last week there  was a senior couple sitting in an immaculate orange 2008 Corvette Sting Ray. ” We got it for our 50th anniversary of marriage” and we are members of the local car classic car club they said. The couple talked about Barry Jackson’s 1958 Stingray with a  bit of glee as if they were progressive by having a couple of decades on Jackson in age and having a late model but classic style Ray.
The couple talked of the local show coming toward the end of July here. With a youthful tang, (after all I had asked them if their parents had bought it for them for graduation.
