A few weeks ago, my dear little faithful Mini Cooper of nine years decided all by itself that it wanted to retire. I thought perhaps a two week notice kind of thing would have been appropriate but in the world of automotive vehicles, there must be a different set of rules. Sigh. It was such a fun little thing to drive.
A replacement seemed to be the way to go. How fun is that? So we waited. And waited. Today it finally arrived so we went to meet it.
They take great care with the Minis over at our dealership so we had a good time anticipating saying hello. First we had to take a few ‘before the unveiling’ photos.
Ta-dah! There’s my new little faithful companion who is going to take us all kinds of interesting places! Post office, grocery store, fitness center, craft store . . . and maybe, from time to time, some place a bit more exotic.
Love this handmade sign!
Here we are with um . . . do I need to give it a name?
A huge thanks to Mike for all terrific assistance getting our new Mini and also to Merle and Maurice for your contributions too!
Time for me and Jay and Sebastian to go motoring!
