    The Austin Gipsy, 1967. The other Landy.

    This ought to be the place where I put a picture of my cousin Kate, when I was 16, she was 15, and was on summer holidays from her boarding school in the UK. Not quite as much filia as either of us angled for, but more than our respective parents were comfortable with.

    The accents are a bit different, but other than that... .

    In my defence she was a work of art. And maybe unlike Alabaman cousins, we'd mostly lived on different continents by then, not just different streets.
