Let's play...The Name Game!!!
The l-o-n-g version: When I was a little girl, I was firmly attached to our Volkswagen Beetle. It was light blue, had a six volt battery, smelled like the inside of a leather satchel, and sounded perfectly comforting for the long weekend drives to nowhere. Our Beetle was aptly named Noddy (after its namesake's little blue and yellow car) and it usually ended up at a playground on a Sunday where Greg and I negotiated the locals while Dad caught forty winks in the car, cos he and Mum liked to burn the candle at both ends. I can't remember what our subsequent cars were called, cos I miss Noddy so much, but now Dad has Red Ted.
Shortly after Hubby and I started *going out* he acquired a car creatively referred to as The Morrie, and since then we've had quite a few vehicles (or visa-cles, as Hubby tends to call them, no hints as to "why"). We've had a sporty little red number, and the White Hot Van (our first more-than-two-kids car), The Cranny (cranberry coloured preggie-goldfish-van) and recently Rasputin, Hubby's little bomb, which is so-called because it refuses to die, lol. And of course The Sardine Tin, a teeny mitsubishi chariot we squashed all the
Introducing our newest addition:
which seriously needs a name. It's a very deep teal colour, and has seven roomy seats. It looks rather wet cos the rain was absolutely *persisting* down today.
M6 is also wondering what to call his new fish:
(the one at the bottom), which is a girl, he thinks. D18 suggested "Susie" and I thought he said "Sushi"... oops.
So we're taking name suggestions for the fish too. There's lots of room in the *comments* box, and how about the promise of a CHOCOLATE FISH (real, not virtual) for the winner/s, posted to your very own snail mail box... m-m-m-m-m!!!!!
