The weather was cool, but enjoyable. We had about 10 Lincolns total join us for the drive from Telegraph to the Deadwood Bar & Grille. We ate so much there, that none of the Lincoln- owners could continue to the Cider Mill for donuts. Oh, well! If you missed it, it was your loss. There were 40+ classic T-birds there.
