It’s been a while since I posted some photos for Dawn’s A Lingering Look At Windows challenge so to get started up again, I’m spicing things up a bit. Well, for me anyway! Your average English country garden post this ain’t!
What we have here are some shots I managed to squeeze in (and I mean squeeze) from the back of my ex-husband’s car (a white Mustang Cobra no less).
This might sound strange and I’m sure some of you would like to know what on earth I was doing there, of all places?
Well, during my trip back to California last year with Aspie D, having spent the bulk of my time with my friend on the Central Coast, I joined Aspie D and her father for the last few days of our trip.
She wanted to see some of the old haunts in Los Angeles (Hollywood, Disneyland and the house from the TV show ‘American Horror Story’, that kind of thing) with me.
EH (ex-husband) stopped just outside the shop so I could grab these shots. Not the best, I agree, but they are windows, and we did linger!
No sign of Kat Von D though.
You can see the reflection of EH’s car in this photo. I’m crammed in the back and could hardly sit up straight. Not that I’m complaining or anything…
I have actually driven that old car a few times, back in the day. As I’ve written here before, nothing beats the deep rumble of a V8 engine.
EH recently sold the Mustang. 20 years he had it.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, no, I don’t have any tattoos. Not my thing. Are you kidding? I thought I was being rebellious when I had my ears pierced (I was 18). Sad isn’t it?
Both my boys do though and when Aspie D was 15 she informed me that she was going to get a skull with wings tattooed across her chest and neck.
So of course I took her straight down to the nearest tattoo parlor…yeah right! I told her not under my roof and hoped that by the time she was ‘of age’ she would come to her senses.
I did also suggest that if she ever got one like that, I would get a tattoo of a fairy with Union Jack wings tattooed on my chest at the same time. A nice mother and daughter day out I thought.
She changed her mind. I wonder why?
