Had a Thought to Go Out Tonight...

And then I had another thought as I poured myself a wee dram.

“Naaaaaaaaaah.”

I can have a pretty good time sitting right here for the nonce.

Took a shower earlier today. Then took the bike out for an errand this afternoon. Stopped by the mini and installed the “Boot Box” as it were called. And a sun-shield for the back window.

And then my errands and back. And I feel like I smell. It’s a manly smell, but not one I really care to share unless necessary. *grins*

The Shield Thing(s)

You can see through it, but I wonder if it makes the window tint too dark or something. I wouldn’t think so, but stranger shit has happened. Be a shame, because I have one for both the side windows too. I don’t really anticipate them being in the windows all of the time any way.

These were the parts that were overnighted to me for some oddball reason I haven’t really been able to fathom.

I’ll put the ones for the side windows in the next day or so. Once I figured out the mechanics of the silly little plastic parts, the one for the back was on in a jiffy.

Been parking TheRedOne on the top floor in the garage. I’m still at the stage where I laugh when ever I see it. And again when I sit in the drivers seat. And when I start it up and take off.

So yeah, I reckon the varnish ain’t off yet.

I've gotta smile when you talk about your reaction whenever you see the car. :)

I get it - I *still* do that, and our "new" car is about 3 1/2 years old! (I never, ever had a brand new car before this one, and I LOVE it.)

It is quite the difference from my rather spartan Saturn.

It's a cool car, that's for sure!

Not really clear on what the sunshades actually are, but I hope they work.

Basically a nylon (I think) mesh that blocks some sunlight and heat. Helping to keep the interior of the Cooper just a little less hot when one goes to get in. We got fierce sunlight round these parts.

Houston Mini Motoring Society - you may care to join.

In the old days (2003) when Minis were still pretty rare things in the US market - we belonged to the equivalent version in the Puget Sound. It was hysterical to rally to picnics, car shows and other outings. Twenty little gumball sized cars in a row - all different colors. Ours was Velvet Red. Owning one used to be a total experience. The direct mail we used to get was fantastic. Huge art directed pieces that were toys and games - one mailing came apart and could be refolded into six tiny paper Mini cars. I hope it continues to bring you joy. I took ours camping once - that was a hoot next to all the big SUVs and trucks in the camp ground... one tiny little car with a crazy woman in it. :)

I'm so happy for you! I know how exciting it is when you get something you really wanted and you love it. :)
