Blue one. Red one. Black and blue arm @ the VW fest… April 14, 2013

Generally on Sundays after Mass, our girls usually have Religious Ed and so, rather than go home and come back, I bring my walking clothes and get a good 45 minute or so walk in.  Today on my walk around our City Circle I was surprised to see a VW festival gathering  of sorts going on.  I heard the music LOOOOOOOONG before I saw the VWs EVERY.  WHERE.   I walked with a smile; not because we own a VW but because my Hubby went through a VW phase in college.  First with a pale blue beetle and later with a VW Bus.  I hated both of them.  I was always afraid I was going to get dirt on me, there was no A/C and they were LOUD.  Ick.  However, I smile because he loved those cars (the bus more than the car) and they had some funny stories attached to them involving fraternities, road trips, steep roads and a line of traffic, among others.  Given a choice, I am willing to bet my Hubs would love another one….given sufficient fundage, I’d say…go for it, sweets.  Enjoy the pics, it was a great 45 minute walk!

    Funny enough, I hear those same stories…one I think excludes them from the state of Alabama.
