Funkengroovin Wednesday - Maadi Has A Woodie

Last week VB received two e-mails, but the comments were somehow not recorded on the blog page:

kaya has left a new comment on your post "Funkengroovin - Terryville, CT Bug-A-Fair 2":

"OOh I love that interior too. And those Beetles all in a row is adorable."

kaya has left a new comment on your post "Funkengroovin - Terryville, CT Bug-A-Fair 2":

"Sometimes I find it hard to open the comments box. Is it my inability or something to do with my comp."

Kaya: Thanks, VB really likes that red interior, and thinks it would look great in the '65 Beetle Convertible she and The Boss Man are having restored. (But, The Boss Man wants an engine that will get about 100 horsepower.) We have started working on it again, so VB hopes to post some photos eventually.

As for the comments, VB has no idea what happened. Not all the Blogger elements work on her computer, since she's a MAC user - most (but not all) work with Firefox, and not so well with Safari. Blogger seems to be very compatible with Windows though. VB did notice that you posted at the same time they had provided a new element to the page layout (which didn't really even show up for VB until a few days later.) VB sat and held her breath, thinking that the comment would surely show up. Only a humorous quote from Little Britain seems to explain it: "The computer says noo."

VB found this Beetle conversion in Maadi, Digla one day. You don't see these around too often.

Please see previous post for all the news.

VB goes to New Hampshire this weekend for The Rhubarb Tour of A Prairie Home Companion live, with Garrison Keillor, on Sunday evening.

Next Tuesday she takes the Vanagon to Jon in Maine for a new speedometer, and a tachometer. Included in this trip, would be a visit to the Freeport, Maine flagship LL Bean Store (open 24 hours, 365 days a year!)

Since it's the summer, and we're off on a few day trips, here's a favorite song of VB's from all those "National Lampoon Vacation" movies:

Just for extra fun, here's a photo of Six Flags New England, which is not far from our house. As a matter of fact, we get all kinds of dimwits driving through our small town, en route to this abomination! (VB hates amusement parks. She does not think they're very amusing, at all.)
