A sudden break

One of those days your old car decided to stop in the middle of the road… A part of daily life with owning a veteran.  You never know when…

Plutselig pause 1 (640x474)

B: What a beautiful day for a drive S: I must have eaten something I shouldn`t, my stomach doesn`t feel right.





Plutselig pause 2 (640x573)

S: Cough, cough… virrr… cough…  B: Are you alright?


Plutselig pause 3 (640x460)

B: No, don`t stop here, a little bit longer please, so we can pull up to the side. S: Cough, cough.. no… stopping right here…cough

Plutselig pause 4 (640x383)

I`m so sorry ha, ha (nervous laughter) we needed a little break, won`t be long I promise… I got some coffee if you like…

Ooopsie, I must have forgotten to empty out the tools from my purse before I left

A rainy day and a beetle

On a rainy day, there is one thing I really like to do. I will go and visit my beetle.

Sometimes I bring something nice to drink, a snack and a good book.

In the back seat of the beetle, I always have a nice wooly blanket.

I`ll take my shoes off and snuggle up.

There is nothing like sitting there listening to the rain, smelling the smells of an old beetle, and looking out the little oval window.

Active driving with Silver

One of the things that come to my mind when thinking about driving Silver is active driving.  What I put into that, can be a lot, like; You really don`t know the road you`re driving daily until you have driven it in a really old car.   When you drive a new car (and that can – in comparison with this oldie – be cars from the `80s and up) you just sit there and “wait” until you have arrived at your destination.  But with Silver, it`s totally different…

It`s one thing I like to add, that has nothing to do with the state of the road. Driving Silver makes me either, hum or sing…

dum-di-du, trall-aaaaa-la-la… 


or talk out loud, when there`s no one there. It might seem weird, I know, but I can`t help it.

Of course, Ant King and Heffnutt join me from time to time, then I can talk to them. And Silver is always there of course.

We just need to turn left here…

…and then right…

Hang on!


Driving Silver is the most joyful way I now, getting from one place to another. Then there is no longer a question about arriving but about the ride.  Whoopsie, a little bump there

Are you alright guys?

Uhh.. oh… mmfff.. yeah, no worries… 

So, you see, a road isn`t just a road anymore, you never know what`s going to happen next.

I never knew the road had so many bumps and turns before…
