Ever Noticed?

Kids start asking questions about the existence of Father Christmas and God at the same sort of time. About the age when they start to think rationally, although this could just be co-incidence.

"sit on my lap little one"
Now I am not a cruel man, so I lied to Junior when she asked.

I didn't have the heart to say, "no sweetie, there is no man with super powers who comes down from the sky to reward our good behaviour. All we get are the gifts we as humans give to each other, from decency and love". She will work it out herself in time.
Can you guess which one I was talking about - tricky isn't it?

A sad sad day.

After 10 years I had to get rid of this, the best car I ever had.
Never mind that the stereo was stolen years ago and never replaced.
Never mind that the speedo showed half the speed you were doing in kilometres an hour.
Never mind the interesting bangs from the back.
Never mind the dents and dings, (this is the good side believe me).
Never mind that the left door doesn't fit quite right, that the roof is a different colour and took a beating when that tree fell on it.
I will miss this motor.

For 200 bar Lee got himself a BARGAIN.

I should have put my foot down. Does junior really need a seat belt and/or seat in the back?
