KEEPING VICTORIA’S MEMORY ALIVE. Victoria’s Buick is a gift to two young “R”ishmen. Victoria loved that car. She would sit in it for hours: she would nap, listen to the radio. When she had to give up driving, it was the beginning of the end. I would like to think she would be happy. She would because she loved you, Meg. Good move in giving it to the young troops. 
The fact that she only napped in it explains why it only has 36,000 miles on it!
It is like a brand new car. Talk about the literal “little old lady.” My memory of that car was once when Victoria talked me into going to eat at the Buckeye (great restaurant in Marin County). First of all, we missed the turn to the restaurant and then drove till we “ran out of road.” Finally we get back to the restaurant. We are so late, they have quit serving. We head back to the City (San Fran) and go across the GG Bridge at 15 MPH. The trip from hell.
