A Christmas Story

This happened to me quite a few years ago.

I left Wardsboro about noon on Xmas Day to visit my sister in Ct.

I figured I’d gas up in West Dover, on the way.

My mistake. All the gas stations were closed.

Wilmington, too.

Not worried, I was sure I could fill up in North Adams or Pittsfield.
