My New Car!




Yes it cost twice as much as a good used car, I went around the block today; very Quiet- no road vehicles were seen. It does not replace my 4 litre  Ford Falcon which I am not permitted to drive until the cataract in my left eye is also removed, about which time my restricted licence comes up for review, so taking no chances on the outcome. I have to get out and about. My eldest son Chris will drive the Falcon for the greater distances and large Shopping trips and I shall get out more for the least excuse and short shopping jaunts; although it is able to carry twice my weight, space for such is limited to approx 3 cubic ft. I suppose it will be more fun going out two or three times instead of one and not have any parking problems.

I went to bed at 1120 pm last night, could not sleep for the pain in my right arm, I stayed up from 3am until 6-30 am, I replied to calls on my blog and watched the TV until I returned to bed where I slept until 1150 AM. The dial on my gold watch tells me it is 7 24 AM, the way I feel at the moment, I get the impression it will be the final battery I shall have to use in my lifetime. I shall make my self a Cuppa and hope for a new direction and the pain will go away.

Looks like you're having a lot of fun in it!

Vest said...

Dylan. I shall be popping out to the shops on Monday for a test run and to buy a battery for my Gold watch.
Unlike the aboriginal bloke who found a dead fly in his watch, and thought the engine driver was dead.

Dylan said...

My watch is windup. It's pretty good. I've just had an issue in the past where the winding mechanism got clumped.

Enjoy you new little car xxxxxx

Lee said...

That's a nifty little machine!! No hooning around now, Vest! :)

Vest said...

Thanks, Jane it is a trifle slower than the ford falcon.4 litre.

Vest said...

Lee. It cannot do burnouts on a roundabout; a 15 km per hour-far too sedate.

I am back once more after a sojourn in the local hospital (Wyong) where the experience of the week of treatment was gratifying and pleasant....
