SHOW & TELL
More participants are here at Kelly's Show and tell Friday
This time I really have something special to show (and tell) ! Last tuesday I went shopping and when I put my bag in the booth (trunk) suddenly the door banged on my head, exactly over my eyebrow and I was more than lucky that my glasses didn't break and hurt my eye. I heard birds singing and was a little knocked out, then climbed back in my car and returned home. I was swearing (nobody heard it anyway) and furious against this bloody car ! It was 7 years old now and unfortunately looked still very good and had only 25.000 km on the counter ! But I also had troubles when I wanted to close the doors I had to click 5 times on the remote control and sometimes I found the car still open when I came back, a ghost had opened it again !
While I was driving I also heard a strange noise when I used the brakes. At home I used an ombrella, which was laying around to keep the door open to take my shopping bag out.
Still furious and with a hurting eye now, I told Mr. Gattino that I was fat up with this car and when one trouble starts others will follow that's for sure !
Opel just had made publicity for selling 2000 cars they had in stock to a very interesting price, so we went there right away and one hour later came out with this !
or rather I will get it this afternoon !! Meanwhile my eye has turned blue , it really fits to my new car !
I also celebrate the "Gotcha day" (Blogging cats call the day they arrived in their homes like this)
It was today exactly 1 year ago, I brought this little kitten home and we called her Rosie !
Rosie when she arrived
and Rosie today (more about Rosie is here
I think my Friday 13 will be a very nice day. The car seller asked me twice if I was sure to want my car on a Friday 13 !!
