Paul is as good a gardner as he is a mechanic — & that says much because he is an exceptionally gifted mechanic. His flowers tell their own tale. He is very dedicated & passionate. He gets up at 4am, every day, to water them. And it shows. He claims that his display, this year, isn’t as good as those of prior years. I disagree. I think they look just fine & dandy. Thank YOU, Paul.

It is that time of year again. Needed to get my 2002 Jaguar XJ8 inspected. Well, there is only one person around here that I trust with my Jags. Paul Bousquet, “B-Boys Auto Repair” in Barnstead. Paul, always, has a magnificent display of flowers at his place and all the flowers are his. He is an amazing person. So many talents. The foliage was on the way back. I stopped at three places.

The backlit leaf is in our yard! What can I say. The other three in Barnstead — when I dropped of my Jaguar XJ8 for its inspection at ‘B-Boys‘.

Out and about two days running (in every sense of the word). Well it, i.e., the XJS, along with the XJ8, the MGB and the Nissan Quest, all needed to be registered prior to month end. Plus the XJS needed some petrol. For those of you who have never owned a Jaguar, Jaguars run on PETROL, not gas. Got that. This was at the Town Hall.

They are all registered. You can actually see the bright green 2018 decal on the number plate. Next step — having them inspected. In the case of the Jags that will be Wednesday.

My Jaguar XJS V-12 (1989) Gets A Rare Outing.

I have NOT driven it much at all this year. I have, of course, been using my 2002 Jaguar XJ8 — though not that much either.

It is that time of the year. Both Jags and the MGB need to be registered by October 1 — which also means, in New Hampshire, that I have to get them inspected. So, I thought I should stretch the XJS’ legs prior to taking it to ‘Paul’ at B-Boys, in Barnstead, on Wednesday. It is a fun car to drive.

The picture says it all. They put synthetic oil in it and get me to have it changed every 5,000 miles. The last oil change was nearly a year ago! Yes, I put less than 5K on it last year!

Had to take the 2002 Jaguar XJ8 for an oil change at ‘B-Boys‘ on Gray Road, Barnstead, New Hampshire. Given that it takes 20-minutes to get home from ‘B-Boys‘ I didn’t see what I would gain, in terms of time, if I got a ride back home while they were doing the oil change. Instead, I decided I will go for a long walk, rather than doing my morning run, while the car was being serviced. So I walked down Gray Road and into Province Road. Walked about 4 miles. Quite the walk. Took these pictures during that jaunt in 80°F.

I had to stop by the new ‘Alton Car Wash’ this afternoon. I was visiting my friend Jessica Rothwell at her new ‘Bella Winni Salon‘ that is next door. I couldn’t resist taking some pictures. Took the Jaguar XJ8 through the car wash. It did a good job.

Since I lucked out in finding him 2-years ago, Paul Bousquet, the co-owner of ‘B-Boys‘, in Barnstead, has been the ONLY place that I will take my cars — and there was 5 at the last count — for repair or inspection.

I think the world of Paul. He is a real gentleman and a gifted mechanic and his son, Jeff, isn’t half-bad either.

Paul in addition to his automotive magic is a master gardener with very green thumb. He gets up at 5am, or earlier, in Spring-Summer, to tend to his beautifully maintained yard. I was there this afternoon, our van being inspected, and I had to take some pictures.

New Hampshire 2017 Topless Season Started Today, April 27.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.



April is coming to an end, and the 1969 MGB, with its antique plate, is due for its bi-annual inspection. [For those of you are not familiar with the NH ‘Antique Number Plates’ for vehicles over 20 years old, they only need to be inspected every other year — but ALL inspections have to be done by May of that year. Kind of cute. This is to ensure that these cars don’t have to be driven during the winter just so that you can get them to a garage for inspection. So they give you till the end of April.]

I have an appointment with ‘B-Boys‘ in Barnstead, on Friday, April 28, 2017 for the inspection. So had to make sure it would start etc. It did start, with the aid of a jumper (our our Nissan Quest) after some cajoling. Always amazes me that it starts after the long winter hibernation.

The XJS also needed a jump to get it going. Took it for a long ride (35 minutes) TOPLESS. It was good. But, I had Devanee follow me, all the way, in the van — just in case! That is NOT good.

But, topless season, in New Hampshire, is now officially started.
