Granny and snippets

Hello All.

You know when I write snippets, I have no idea what I am going to talk about.
I am going to be as surprised as you.

Oh yes.
One thing comes to mind.
It is M’s birthday on the 30th.
He will be 78.
Shame, he is getting old.
I bought him a kg of Biltong(Jerky).
He has already finished more than half of it.
I also love it.
However, it does not love me.

My yellow baby was bought by my neighbour, two doors away.
It is so strange to see her parked, under cover, when I drive past.
I am sure she is happy.
She has never had covered parking.
Hence the rust.

I have decided to call the new car Chatty.
I don’t want to alienate her.
She has to last until I shuffle off this mortal coil.
Talking about the mortal coil.
The 99 year old has been threatening to do that for 40 years!
I fetch him every Sunday.
Give him coffee and breakfast.
Our new routine.
Watched him walking down to his front door when I dropped him.
He is really battling with his walking.
Having said that, it is amazing that he can still shower himself.
Wash his hair etc.
He is incredible.

Only one power outage today.
Life is good.
We are off from four until six this afternoon.
Tomorrow is a different story.
We go off three times.
No point stressing about that now.



  1. I still can’t believe that you only have two hours of being off and that ours is three at a time! I was off for nine hours a day twice last week! UGH!

    I always love your snippets 😉

    Have fun in Chatty 😉

    • Thanks my friend.
      So good to see you back.

  2. I like the name, you’re right, you so want to stay on the car’s good side 😊

    • I know.
      Old car knew I loved her.
      Never gave me any mechanical problems.

      • New cars not red is it?

  3. It must be strange seeing your yellow car outside someone else’s house. I’m sure she’ll be very happy there and you can always go past and give her a pat if you’re feeling sentimental. I love the name, ‘Chatty’ for your new baby – it’s perfect for a car that tells you what to do all the time. Your 99-year-old is doing amazingly well for his age; being able to walk down the road and shower and dress himself. He’s doing better than me, I think! Xxx 💕

    • Hi Ellie.
      Went past yesterday.
      She’s gone!!!!

  4. Love your cars name chatty chatty bang bang – sorry, couldn’t help it, just sprang to mind. There is a movie chittychittybangbang isn’t there?

    • Great minds think alike!
