Vintage Rovers

In Tavistock yesterday, we parked near an array of elderly cars.  Not, on the whole, ancient cars - cars about my age, or perhaps 10 years older.

I was delighted to see that one of the two elderly Rovers had a number of Werther's Original sweets on the dashboard.  If I were writing fiction and included one of those Rovers, I'm not sure I would have the nerve to include Werther's Original, it would seem just too much.  I immediately rushed over to the other Rover to check it for Werthers.  Sadly there were none - but even better, there was a tin of pipe tobacco, and a wooden pipe!  

Sometimes it's nice to have your expectations confirmed.
