Granny is covered.

Hello All.

Yes, my little car now has a protective film on all the windows.
Except the windscreen.
A lovely young man came to the house to do it.
Kept calling me Aunty or Mommy.
He came with his young son who acted as his apprentice.

He gave me a list of instructions.

  1. Do not use the windows for at least 48 hours.
    I have to go to the mall, later, to buy some stuff for work.
    Am going to look like an idiot when I get out of the car to retrieve the ticket that opens the boom.
  2. Do not wash the inside of the windows for 30 days.
    That one will be easy.
  3. Park the car in the sun, as often as possible, for the next fortnight.
    Also easy as we do not have a garage.

I also phoned the place that services and gasses the car air conditioner.
They do not open on a Saturday but they DO open on a Sunday to do armoured cars.
They might be able to fit me in tomorrow.
I do hope so.
Driving with closed windows might be uncomfortable.

Problem solved.
We are going up to the mall in Mex’s car.
So, I had better get ready.
Catch you on the flip side.


  1. The inconveniences are not terribly inconvenient. Have a super weekend.

  2. Hope you remember to NOT open the window.

    A few weeks back, a dirty bird went on the closed window. I noted to myself, “do not open the window until you clean the bird poo off so it won’t get stuck in the rollers.” Five minutes later, I rolled down the window to talk to a neighbor. The poo was still wet. EWWWWW . . .

    • One more day to get through.
      It is such an automatic reaction.

  3. Good luck, Granny!
