Mish Mash

                

The Saturday before last went to visit my sister Joy ~ stopped in at Asda on the way to do a little shopping ~

On leaving the store I drove to the traffic lights ~ and glanced over the Road at the Garage where I bought my little "KA" (In fact I have bought all my cars from them)

I don't know why I drove into the garage as I had no intention of changing my car ~ but driving along a line of cars for sale my eye caught this one ~

and I just knew it had to be mine ~ So I went into the Office got the keys and had a look inside ~ it is a bit bigger than my little "KA" and has 4 doors plus power steering ~

The garage did all the work changing over my Tax disc ~ and even got me a better deal with the insurance company ~

When I got back home I told Lyn what I had done ~ and she laughed and said "You were only going out to buy some fruit"

We drove down there on the Sunday so she could take a look at it ~ and she like me thought it was lovely ~ so last Saturday we went to collect it and say goodbye to my little "KA" which had only done53 thousand miles in all the time I have had it ~ I really only used it to go back and forth to work ~ and Lyn does all the driving on our other outings ~

So I am now the proud owner of a Fiesta ~ Flight ~ colour Midnight Blue  named "Agy" and was given a beautiful bouquet on leaving ~

Congratulations !!  I would love to trade my Toyota in on a little newer one (mine is a 1997 with 92,000 miles on it) but I only have one payment left on this one & I do not want to make payments again.  I love that blue color..it's really a nice looking car.   Linda in WA

Neat little car. Sure big enough
to seat three or four. (Our second
car seats seven, but we'll only need
six, ha ha ha) We don't have a "KA"
here as far as I know, so "KA" looks
like KIA (Korean) with one letter left out.
Your new 'wheels' has a front emblem
that looks like Ford's. I'm intrigued
by the basketball hoop. I thought
I read that Great Britain bans the
importing of basketballs, ha ha ha.
Let me guess: you played hoops in
school?!  (New Subject:) Ever read any-
thing written by Andrew M. Greeley?
He's an American Order Catholic priest
whose books do well. I'm reading
THE PRIESTLY SINS, a novel. Might
have been modelled, in broad outline,
on an actual event. It begins in a courtroom
with a law suit over charges of child
molestation, a suit aimed to discredit a
witness. I was stunned to discover that
such a new (2004) novel existed. The book
might very well send me back to Mass.

My dial-up connection will not let me see the car but I am glad you found one and have lower priced insurance now also.    So you have named it 'Agy'.    That is nice that you got a bouquet on leaving.    

oddb0dkins said...

Now that's what you call an impulse buy, lol. Good for you Ally. One thing though, did you post a picture because if you did I can't see it?
Never mind, happy motoring to you. B. x

moodymyke7 said...


Hey, you just went out to buy some fruit and came home with a new car?  LOL
I think you will enjoy Agy very much. The color sounds beautiful. I love blue.
You KA didnt have power steering?  Those are hard to drive . In the olden days I use to drive them with a stick shift.  Thank heavens for automatics.
Enjoy your Agy and take care.........  Love Myke

LOLOL ally you're as bad as my dad...One time he took our car to the garage to get the exhaust fixed and him and mum came home with a brand new car instead LOL...Power steering is one thing in a car that i couldn't do without...I got 5 alerts for this entry btw ROFL   Caff xxxxx

rachealcarol said...

Way to go Ally that's the best kind of shopping.  I'm a Fiesta owner but with power steering (very jealous :))  mine has been absolutely fantastic, taken me miles and never complained, I hope yours does the same and I'm sure it will. Rache
