Dear Dr. Morgan,

here in Germany it is so that I could get in conflict with the law if I would race a mature and in all arts very experienced lady if she is a car. The reason is that she would make strong sounds of happiness and fog me into a lush cloud of perfume of exquisite exhaust scents. This is politically incorrect nowadays and does not comply with some newish regulations. But on the other side although I only have the best buddyish intentions with my 4/4 in her tender youth, I take your concerned thoughts seriously.
Maybe it is a 35 or 40 year old Lady Plus 8 that suits me better, and she has honestly always been the desire of my wild dreams since my youth.
And in defiance of today's expectations: a bit of dirty thought increases the attraction of the incorrect. You, dear Dr. Morgan, make me forget my Corona worries. You have opened my eyes and led me down the path of true adult enjoyment. Okay, a lady Plus 8 likes to drink more, but so do I. And the beautiful mature Plus 8 has already survived several crises and will also master the current one.

Dear Dr Morgan

I have concerns on behalf of a number of our forums readers. They are all too shy and polite to talk about their problem. The requirement to grease the suspension results in the use of a substance which may carry the virus. They seem to be very keen to get lubed up and so if the substance does carry the virus for an extended period they may be bought back into contact with it in the future.

Can you guide me around the possible risks of getting greased up.

Thanks

Dear Dr Morgan,
I upset my beloved Roadster today. To keep her happy in self isolation I was reading TM maintenance threads. Unforetunately one of them mentioned dip stick lengths & now she doesn't seem impressed by me.
Help

Your Ivor S Mallun.

PS I also am thinking of using gliptone to sanitise my hands. Is it safe?

Ordered a black one. Suits the present system slightly better (and was a tenner cheaper!).
Perusing the rest of their site for a potential replacement CD/radio for kitchen/dining area to replace swmbo 's portable. It's either that or a refurb Bose Wave.

Dear Concerned of Surrey

Being an owner of a Morgan with, shall we say, having a modern aesthetic, you will not be versed in the ways of the applications of sticky sebum to ones undercarriage

Now that ‘sporting events’ behind closed doors, have ended, and safe distancing is enforced, the world will have a surplus of all types of lubrications ready for us Traditionally styled Morgan owners to apply on our king pins and bushes

More’s the pity for you Sir

Yours smearingly

Dr Morgan

Dear Doctor Morgan

I have self diagnosed an intermittent loss of energy (actually it was a bit bloody obvious). I put this down to a COVID virus and the subject is currently socially distanced in my garage.

One prophylactic suggested to me is to squirt contact cleaner over the connection on the.throttle valve. However, I cant't get the ruddy thing off. My questions are

How do I get the ruddy thing off?
Who decided to put it where I can't get to it?
What if this is not it?
Is this contagious, and who else has got it?
Could it be that everyone is suffering from this, but they are all asymptomatic?
Does contact cleaner work or do I need to wash my hands as well?
Why is the connector in an inaccessible place? Why couldn't it be next to the MAFsensor?
Since this is a throttle problem, would an appropriate solution be to strangle somebody?

Your help needed please
Regards
Hans Neesandboomsidaisy

Dear Mr Neesandboomsidaisy

I detect from my alert powers of intuition this may be a real issue and one I would be delighted to assist

A lack of exuberance and energy is indeed a symptom of a new virus if experienced with complete and utter frustration of all things mechanical and in particular Morgans

For that Sir there is no cure presently

As to making an effort to find hidden sensory parts, that is a common complaint of the Lady Dr Morgan

For those hard to reach awkward places I employ the services of a young chimney sweep who with smaller hands has the dexterity of hand in tight spaces

I hope this advice helps

Yours slavishly

Dr Morgan

Dear Doctor M,

I have a malaise of boredom infecting my body and mind this morning

Would it help if I sneaked into the office Boardroom whilst all the important people are on lockdown and relieve the 'secret drinks cabinet' of it's contents ?

Regards,
Ivor Tightnut

When I was just starting out in my career the company I worked for maintained an apartment in a prestigious central London location, apparently for meetings innocent. We routinely billed other parts of the group for appropriate costs so I invoiced the head office for a huge bill from a wine merchant. A couple of days later my manager rushed into the office in a panic crazy2 having received a phone call from our group CEO scared rofl rofl rofl.
