Yay!

Gambara the Volvo, with over 146,000 miles on the clock, passed her MOT with flying colours, and didn't even need a new tyre! 

Blimey they build Volvos solid.

What else has happened?  Pp and I went to Colin the Art's Open Studio private view thingy, and were much amused by this one of his paintings
:

Rosie Roo got a sore ear, I think possibly a wasp stung it.   She'll throw a wobbly if a vet tries to look at it, so I'm giving it a couple of days in the hope that it will be better on its own.

Poor Rosie! I sympathize with her. I hate to go to the doctor also! Hope the ear heals quickly. If it was a wasp, it probably will.

I love the painting. It's very clever.

Rosie's ear seems to have improved, so I think we have escaped the dreaded vet!

Well, you can't fault Colin's ambition!

Hope Rosie gets better all by herself.

Rosie is feeling much better. I shall be interested to find out tomorrow if anyone has bought the Tavistock Bull!

I'm glad Rosie isn't worse off after a wasp sting. George was stung under his back right leg and just managed to get home before collapsing; that leg was never quite the same again.

That painting! Colin is a man with skills *and* humor. It's fun to see what his work is like.

I passed a sign that said MOT the other day and meant to look up what it meant. You've reminded me, so now I have. Congratulations, Gambara!

I hope Rosie's ear is better soon.

Yay Gambara!!

I would love a Volvo but I can't afford the Volvo tax, so I'll have to be content with the Volkswagen tax instead.

Poor Rosie. When the floppy bits that you can't control hurt it's somehow worse than when it's something you can avoid using.

We need one giant car that we can shove vast numbers of roleplaying games into, hence the Volvo, which is very old and cheap, but so far has been surprisingly robust.

Sadly, the era of giant, old, and cheap Volvos seems to have passed on, here in the northern part of the US. The salt on the roads has eaten them all. I would love a giant car I could shove camping equipment into so that I didn't need the trailer, but instead I have compromised with a trailer and a not-so-giant VW Tiguan. On the plus side, it does have heated seats.

Bacchus thinks that's an excellent painting. I'm more of the 'my eyes, my eyes, what have I seen' and also 'why?!?!' opinion :-) Hope Rosie's ear is healing well & that's excellent news about the MOT.

:-DDD I rather like it. It's certainly lively... Rosie's ear seems to be much better so I am hoping we have escaped a vet visit!
