The Classic’s List

I recently realized that my Classic Club list is missing in action. I was surprised but not wholly so; last year was absolutely terrible and many a things went awry including my Classic Club membership and my list! But the very very kind moderators at the Club have taken me back in the fold and as a fresh start, I decided to add a new list, instead of going back to the old one. The idea fundamentally being that I will finish this list by February 3rd 2024
