Little Red Car

I realized in my last post that I reference Mr. VW without explanation. He is of course my other half and has a life long love affair with classic vw beetles. Hence, Mr. VW. After over a decade of togetherness, we eventually found his little love on the side of the road with a big 4 sale sign. Quick test drive and a match was made. We are a folk of little means :: little paychecks that is. But this little car has bought us all love -including the J's. Red73VW is suffering the effects of time, leaky windows and rain and needs some serious "pan" work, but we still love a quick zip around the countryside on a sunny afternoon. Here's the little beauty :: very photogenic, but slightly sadder looking up close. Nevertheless a family member.


Speaking of family members, I can't resist but to share these two little family members. Linus and Sally. Two of the Four canine members :: Pigpen, Linus, Lucie & Sally. Here is Mr. Linus, the senior gentleman of the pack who has in his old age mistaken my clean washing for a lovely soft place to sleep. We think his mind might be going a tad bit in his old age...at least he didn't mistake it for a place to spend a penny. The other is the baby of the group, Sally aka "The Stomach" or "Log" for her vast expanse and love of the 'f' word :: food. Here she is even in sleep guarding her treat from the others.

Red73VW seems to be in good shape, judging by the way you described the test drive. The car will live to see the day, something a few tweaks here and there will guarantee.
