Last weekend was our local towns 25th ‘Annual Classic Car & Motorcycle Show’ which Moo was quite keen to attend, so early morning saw us parked up in the Town Hall car park along with around at least 100 other classics, this show was slightly different as the cars were parked into ‘eras’ which meant visitors could swoon over whichever section in motoring history floated their boat. By now you are possibly wondering why Moo & Millicent are minor celebrities? WELL the local newspaper photographers were out & about AND ….
Millicent must have really been strutting her stuff as she impressed enough folks to vote for her in the spectators poll AND …
We have noticed when we escort Millicent on her travels or attend shows and vintage events she does get her fair share of attention, for an 80 yr old lady this sure makes her day
But this has given us an idea … we are considering looking into the possibility of hiring Millicent out as a film extra ~ I just know Miss Marple would LOVE to have Millicent drive past her in the background during a shoot
In good ‘ole Blighty there hasn’t been much of a summer, rain most days, not overly warm and yet Moo & I have been having a riot while his daddy has been doing his month long elective placement at a Tanzanian hospital. According to the gospel of Moo one of the highlights has been our ‘War Weekends’ firstly I’ll give you the edited highlights of Woodhall Spa’s 40’s festival
At this festival weekend it’s positively encouraged that all visitors ~ should they so wish, dress the part and most of the 50,000 folks who went took up the challenge, Beloved Moo & myself included.
Hercule tried to excel the virtues of Agatha Christie’s Belgian sleuth upon Moo ~ who promptly ~ yet I have to say politely, pointed out the errors of his ways as Grandma prefers Miss Marple, I have to say I never realised Moo took that much notice of my detective viewing habits or indeed that he knew who Poirot or Marple were …I stand corrected 🙂
All things being equal I thought rather then bore the living day lights out of anyone regarding the new love of my life ‘Millicent Morris’ I’m going to feature most posts about her over on my sister blog Enduring Cottage so feel free to call over to have your life invaded by a Morris 8 …or not it’s up to you 🙂
Let me begin by going on the record stating how much I love my Beloved, now that all & sundry are aware of that fact let me move oh so swiftly on as my excitement levels are in major overdrive, when I say I get excited it’s a gross understatement I skip, my attention level is zero, I giggle, in other words I put a 3 yr old to shame with my carrying on,
I also ought to mention I’m seduced by glamour, romance and the bygone era, so just what has turned my head so much that Beloved felt compelled to buy me just to shut me up ??
As if the car wasn’t enough …
There will be many a post to follow as I actually learn how to ‘drive’ the little beauty, and become a total vintage car geek …so consider yourself warned !!!
