Yes, we did go by car this time. For some reason Gail decided to give the train a break...
Much as I like the Mini, and approve of the arrangement whereby the rear seats are folded down and all the space in the back is devoted to my comfort, I have to say that in warmer weather the lack of air conditioning is a drawback.
One can only stand with one's nose sticking out the front window for so long.
I have been looking out for a new car for us for quite some time now.
On the way home yesterday, we stopped for a break in the cute wee town of Moffat and I spotted the perfect vehicle in a hotel car park.
A vintage Bugatti.
I checked it over quite carefully.
Stylish, full of character, beautifully engineered and designed for staying cool.
Oh yes, I can imagine myself being driven all over the Scottish Highlands, wind in my furs, drawing gasps of admiration from envious bystanders (even more so than usual).
Gail, where can we buy one in Aberdeen?
Oh I am going to put my paws over my flappy little ears if you start on with your boring objections. And it doesn't rain here that much. Does it......?
PS I have been told to mention that my sore paw is quite better now. To tell you the truth, I had forgotten all about it.
