One Day...

The rich and famous are in town this week as the Cheltenham Literature Festival takes place (more on that tomorrow) and someone was taking the opportunity to show off their new toy. This is what you call a proper car, and it's nearly as good as my Ford Fiesta! The little boy looking through the window just says it all. It would have been a better photo if there had been a Traffic Warden slapping a parking ticket on the windscreen, as this Rolls Royce is parked on double yellow lines!

And now the moment you've all been waiting for...the winner of yesterdays guessing game! The best idea for what TEG stands for came from Ken Mac with tensile epigrammatic gobsmacked! Ken, that word of the day toilet paper is paying great dividends!

Does it get good gas mileage?

That's quite the tank parked there. Dream on, kid. Sorry I missed the guessing game yesterday - it looked like fun.

Goodness - I wonder who that belonged to! If you screw your eyes and go cross-eyed it looks like our car (well, it's the same colour anyway - I can dream!).

expensive cars just mean expensive repair bills... it's pretty though =)

Marley, you're just too funny! Shame on you wishing a traffic citation upon this Rolls owner. Don't you realize how many pounds he's lost over the last few days in the market? And the audacity of even uttering "Ford Fiesta" in the same sentence ... my OH MY! :)

I love little boys expressions while gazing at cars! Priceless!

And I did enjoy your mushroom joke yesterday, too funny :)

I'm still laughing at Chuck's lecture. But, man, that is a humongous car!

No one here has dared to buy one yet, though I know there are some who'd be able to afford one. That'll be too much like adding salt to a wound. The SUVs are bad enough.

Thank you thank you! I humbly accept my award and you can send the 25 rolls of engraved toilet paper to my GVDP address! :), Wow, that car out hummers a Hummer. Thanks Marley!

Posh & Beckham are in town, I see.

the banker who owns this did a runner. Hoping someone will steal it so they can claim the insurance.

Any indication by the registration who it is. Bankers 'll bet if you get my drift. I am slowly getting the laptop up and running. Nightmare!

I use to want a Rolls. Now I want a VW Phaeton, but only if I can get it in a hybrid version. Or maybe the Aston-Martin Daniel Craig drove in Casino Royale. That looked like a sweet ride.

Shame on this elitist for parking illegally, but great photo!

You're right, the little boy makes the photo! Superb. Wonderful car. ... sigh.... :)

A very cute photo with the little guy standing looking in! A proper car you say? too funny!
