Mini Motor

The Lord of the house has a new vehicle.

He has wanted a Mini Cooper since I've known him.  Last week, his dream came true.

It's the cutest little car.  Er, um, I mean, it's the manliest ride.

Steven is a chess player, so he finds the checkerboard pattern amusing.

I'm just pleased that I fit in the seat.

It's fun to drive, and doesn't feel nearly as small as it looks.

The car salesman told me he was from a small town in Indiana.  I told him I had lived in a small town in Indiana.  Imagine our surprise when we realized we were both from the same small town and had gone to the same high school at the same time.  (although, he was younger than me)  You were right Walt Disney, it is a small world.

Say hello to Steven's mother, The Dowager Margaret.  Actually, I don't know what makes one a Dowager, so that may not apply.  What the heck, it's my blog, I'll call her what I like.  DM it is!

Oh, I had an epiphany recently---I don't like it when people don't see things my way.  Go figure, eh?  :-)

Happy Mini Day!

the checkerboard it wonderful.

I have a "steven" too....I think I'll be driving something red too..but it may have the Jeep symbol instead of Mini..
time will tell, our son is returing to the US before the end of the year so I'll be handing over his car keys..I'll miss driving "the beast"

zoom around a few blocks for me!!!

He's making that Mini look really tough! Love the Mini, so great. Have you seen the new Fiat? So cool...And what small town in Indiana are we talking about? My parents are from small towns in Southern Indiana: New Castle and Richmond!
