It Was a CAR-Full Weekend! By Mercy

Not only did Kody come and visit this weekend, but he and his Uncle Robert got quite a thrill when they looked out and our front window on Friday late afternoon, and saw THIS at the end of our driveway where it goes out onto the road…


 






For those who aren’t up on Exotic cars, those two dark ones are Lamborghinis. They are terribly expensive and you don’t see them very often. This was only the second time in Grammy’s 57 years that she’s seen one.









 








The things have a V-TWELVE engine in them! THAT, apparently equals LOTS of POWER, though Grammy figures it equals LOTS of expensive FUEL! There were also some fancy Mercedes race cars and a Ferrari. Have you ever seen a young man drool like a dawg?!? Apparently they were on an “Exotic Car Rally” that ran through here. We’ve seen a lot of Antique and Classic Car Rally’s go through here as well as BUNCHES of Motorcycle Runs, but never an “Exotic Car Rally.” 











Then, this morning, Papa and Robert went into town and went to another Car show. I don’t know WHY they didn’t take at least SOME of us! I know they talked about taking me and Pippin, but then decided not to for some reason! 









Grrrr… and after we’d been so nice to Kody, too. Of course, he’d been pretty nice to us to with all those treats…












They saw some of those 50’s Chevy’s that Grammy likes, and a “mock-up” of the MunsterMobile and dragster from some Munster Movie, as well as a 1912 Harley Davidson Motorcycle…(looked like a bike to Grammy until she looked closely at the name on it…)


 





 











Well, to get back to us… Would you look at these pics of Mama Dott! She doesn’t allow little kids around her unless she is being safely held by GrandPaw Robert, EXCEPT for Little Bear (Kody), but she REALLY likes him… She was trying to get his attention away from the Movie, “Cars,” that he was watching…




















Gimli isn’t so subtle!

Wow those cars sure look fancy!
What sweet pictures with Kody and you all :)
He seems to be a very nice boy.
Thank you for sharing your adventures.

Love, Bella.

some car show indeed, Linda! I bet they had fun looking at all the cars; I know men "get" into it a lot, knowing about engine sizes, etc. I'm always grateful the car just starts, LOL. So glad that Dott loves to have Little Bear around and lets him spend time loving on her pups!

betty

We love those restored cars from the fifties. They are wonderful, and make us all so nostaglic.
Kody sure gets loads of corgi kisses, doesn't he? They just eat him up!

How cool is that! They brought the car show to your house! We see a few old antique cars go through here from time to time but there is a man who has a few of them and I figure it is him driving them.

Those pups just wanted some lovin from the little man of the house! Cute!

Hugs,
Angela

That would be a car show to see! I'm not sure if I've ever seen (other than TV) a Lamborghini!
That Kody is one cute Little Bear! He's got to be very special, judging from the love he gets from the canine crew.
