Love understands green.....

Someone asked about the kind of car I drove. I have to share the story with you....
Most of you know that I recently was married (second time) to the Dutchman, whom I love dearly. He is my a sweetie, really, he tries so hard..... He is somewhat "frugal", likes to make sure he is spending his money wisely.....
Don't get me wrong, he can be very generous when he wants.
Like the time he bought me my car.
He asked me if it was okay to buy me a car.
I said yes of course!
He asked if it mattered what he picked it.
I said no, of course,I will love whatever you buy me.
So off he went to get the car. As I watched him drive away I thought to myself, "just not green"
In my previous life there were some green vehicles and it is one colour I don't like.
I love green in many other things, green wool, fabric, paint, just not cars..... I don't know why. I love white cars....everyone knows I do.....
He came home with a new car!!!
It's green.
He's my Dutchman, I love him....
I drive a green car.
I pretend it's grey.
It works.

Wild Hare Wednesdays

I am not sure why but these images were the first thing I thought of when I wondered what to post for my Wild Hare Wednesday with Shell from the Raspberry Rabbits......
Perhaps it was all the hours of listening to the "music" as Kaden first learned to play the violin........



Someday, the hair raising sound will be real music.....
