A trip to the car wash!!

This is one of the drafts I did before we went cold turkey.  You probably won't believe this little story but I'm here to tell you it's the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  So help Mum, GOD!!!  She sure needs a bit of help, aye??  There were no pics so I'll just pop in a few, very embarrassing, shots Mum took the other day.






Here goes!!!!!          Crikey ..... what a shame I'm too late for Bertie's  Darwin-lite award.  My Mum would have been a prime candidate for it today.  I so wish I had pictures but I don't so you are just going to have to picture it in your minds. I'll try and paint the story in words.  Are you ready?? ...... picture this .....


Our car was filthy. Mum decided to run it through the automatic car wash as she was too lazy to wash it herself.  She packed me in the back and off we went.  She's NEVER used one of these things before. We pulled up where it said to ...... in front of the paying machine. Mum wound down the window and put her money in and then proceeded, slowly, as the sign said, into the car wash area. The light turned green and the washing process started. It starts with a soap solution first. All was going well. Mum was fascinated and was watching the machine closely as it moved slowly down the bonnet of the car and then WHAMMO ... Mum was covered in white soapy suds and so was the INSIDE of the car. She forgot to wind up her window after putting her money in the machine.  Yeah ..... I know ...... you gotta wonder, aye???  There's not much goes on in that brain of hers. Her eyes were stinging and she was feeling around for something to wipe things down with. She did have enough sense to wind up the window before the machine came round again. Just as well as the next cycle was a powerful water spray. Even I would have got soaked in the back. Now usually there's heaps of towels and things in the car but not today. Dad had cleaned it out and all she could find was a box of tissues with about 4 tissues left in it. Those tissues sure got a work out.  Sometimes I think there's just no hope for her.

Wanna run ... Love, Charlie.

    1. Crikey Lord and Lady ... I'm so glad you're back. Even if it is only sometimes. My Mum think of your Mom often. Those eye problems are a very bad thing, aye?? I know cause I'm a sight hound and my eyes are VERY important to me. I'm so pleased to hear your Mom's doing a bit better. My Mum will be ok too, we hope, after her next op in March and as long as they can keep the macular under control. Here's hoping!!
      My Mum gets into all sorts of scrapes. She's away with the fairies most of the time.

    1. Crikey, Easy!! Trust your Mom to take it to the next level, aye?? On her way to an interview?? Well ..... it turned out good for you. You've got Mom home with you instead of at work all day long. My Mum's a housewife too. I don't think anyone would employ her.

    2. Crikey Blueberry's human ..... I'm honoured that you blame me for your use of "fair dinkum". It's very expressive isn't it and you can use it for lots of reasons.

  18. Hi Charlie
    Great to see you back. And yes, your mum would have been a strong contender for the Darwin-lite award. Wow, that was dumb! (But at least she wouldn't have needed a shower later).
    Sorry to hear she's been having those problems with her eyes, so tell her to go easy and not strain them too much.
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie.
