This afternoon, I invited the car club from Amherst High School to my house. Last winter, one of the kids had read Look Me in the Eye, and he'd asked to come see the cars. Today, he bought some of his friends. These 10th graders told their story in words and pictures, and I thought I'd just turn their email into a blog post on this fine Tuesday evening.
My son Jack was on hand to help pull cars around, and he took the car club members for rides around South Amherst. We pulled the Corniche convertible out for the first time since last fall, and he even took a carload to the gas station. This is their story:
Arriving at John's House

Checking out the ex-British Army Land Rover Defender
Who wants to ride the Harley?
