The Boss Lady rides again

After dinner we cruised over to check out a 2006 New Beetle Convertible that we saw online. It is a gorgeous 06 with less than 4000 miles on it. Evidently this is what they call a "program car". I could definitely see myself stealing this car away from The Boss Lady on the weekends.


It did not seem to light The Boss' fire, like the little red MINI. When I told her that, she laughed and said that it looked like it had lit mine pretty well. She is right. I did not drive the MINI. I did manage to talk her, or was it BEGGING, into letting me drive this one.

Anyways, of the two cars, this one seems a little more practical. Of course, if we were looking at practical we would probably just stay with the 12 year old 626. The peeling paint ain't pretty, but it sure is practical.

I just stumbled upon your blog a couple of weeks ago while doing research for a SAHD friend of mine. It has been really cool to watch you guys grow up.

Bug mania is hitting the blog world. Ohhh I had the top down on Cali today and it was great. The bright red catches eye and I love her! Keep us updated on the car search.

Tell the boss lady I love mine and two car seats fit well and the trunk even held a ton of items from Costco. Can you see me smiling like a cheshire cat? Can you say traffic isn't bothersome any more? hee hee.

Seeing your purty car on your blog reminded me how much I love VWs.

They had an 07 Salsa red with tan roof sitting on the new side of the lot. I did not go check it out. Worried that you would call my wife a copy cat.

Angel said...

That's silly. You all live far far away and we would never bump into one anothers. Pick away. Besides, mine has a black roof. ;-P

I smiled at the thought that I spurred you on to look at a beetle again. That's wicked cool! Copy away or don't. I'm cool with that.

And don't you hate when someone comments on your blog a ton of times in a row like a narcisistic parade? hee hee... man I should cut back on the coffee. :D

I think I remember your ol Bug... Was it a lite blue??? Maybe that is Rick's 'Vette, I am thinking of.

Mike said...

Angel, I love it when anyone comments on my blog. Otherwise it is just me sitting here talking to myself. Like ususal.

Terry, That is why this Beetle gets my vote. Mine was a tan/beige darker than this one, but a nice color for me!

But you are right, Rick's 'Vette was blue.
