Between You, Me and the Lamppost

 

Surprised by Joy.

That's what my post is about at Vision & Verb today.

(btw, we just traded in this 4-year-old car for a new one)

Surprised by Joy, isn't that a Christian book? C.S. Lewis maybe? i just love this picture, seriously, love love love, that is my fave colour, the green green sky of home smile well done, Ginnie!!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Elaine...a phrase/book by C.S. Lewis (a link in my V&V post). We LOVED having a car that color and can hardly believe we don't have it anymore, except in our memory. Thank you.

Your innovative filtering works very well here, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ray.
Love the title. That is funny.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. I was lucky to have this image for my post from 4 years ago. smile
I LOVE everything about this!!! One of my absolute favorites!
Ginnie Hart: Isn't it so funny what we think is good/favorite about othere's images, Robin. This one surprises me. HA! But thanks.
Great heading for this..smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Shane. smile

Our Granny Towanda..... This is a wonderful portrait of her.
She served us brilliant on our adventures and the trips to work and home. In rain, on snowy roads grin...... I once tried to get her into a spin on the empty parking lot of the office at 6.30 in the morning grin.... Hurray for the winter-tires.
I have fond memories of her.
Can you imagine 1 liter for 21 km..... translate that into 1 gallon for 52,5 miles.....
The new car does 1 liter to about 20....
Ginnie Hart: She did us good and proud, MLMA. We'll never forget her because she was our first. smile And now we will enjoy our new Silverleaf Sand Dollar.

I have very happy memories of this sweet little car Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: She'll never forget you, Sir Chris.

At least the car has stopped short of the lamp post and not embedded itself in it smile Have fun with the new car and take care. If I'm going to do anything daft in a car, it's usualy within the first two months as I get used to subtle differences in width or length.
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, Alan, we loved our green car a lot but are quickly falling in love with our new one. smile

You both must have regretted her moving on, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Let's just say it was a bittersweet experience, Lisl! The new car is becoming quite the charm for us. Just enough bigger to make us appreciate the difference, if that makes sense. smile
Man identifies freedom with liberty of movement, domain above nature, but there is something else...isn't it Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, JC. There is always "something else." smile

Awww. It's Granny Towanda. Have you come up with a name for the new gal yet?
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Mary, because of how Native American it sounds, we will probably keep "Silverleaf" for short as its name. "Silverleaf Sand Dollar" for it's full name. How Native American does THAT sound! smile

Ginnie Hart: HA! Thankfully, NO, JP. smile
A fitting image for turnover time. I expect there are fond memories and hope you enjoy your next one too
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Janet. I've missed you and now I can only say GET WELL SOON!

Very clever, Ginnie. Do you get sad when you sell a car?
Ginnie Hart: Thaks, Pauline. In this case, it wasn't so much sadness as bittersweetness. She was such a good car for us but it was time to move on.

You kept in nice and clean.
Ginnie Hart: Astrid did, Richard. She took great pride in that car...and will do the same with our new one, I know.

It's that famous go-anywhere car Ginnie, but I thought it was blau in colour.
Ginnie Hart: And to think you even rode in it several times, Chad!!! Surely you jest. grin

Reminds me of a tree frog ;-)
That's a fine colored photo, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it, HF. smile Thanks.
The lamp post looks so surreal!
Is that a Daihatsu?!
My 1st car was also a Daihatsu! smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, LC, it's a Daihatsu...which Japan isn't selling in Dutchland anymore because it's not cost effective (it's too "green"wink. So the new car we bought is a Å koda Citigo, which we love! smile
an life in green!
Ginnie Hart: We loved it while we had it, Olivier. smile Thanks.
Happy motoring in your new Silverleaf Sand Dollar, Ginnie. Let's hope Granny Towanda will find a home where she is as loved and well cared for as she was with you & Astrid.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Beverly. Someone is getting a very good and well-cared for car! Astrid will do the same with Silverleaf Sand Dollar. smile
What on earth is a Silverleaf Sand Dollar? I liked your little Daihatsu
Ginnie Hart: Silverleaf is the Å koda name for the color of our new car, Bill, but it has a touch of sand in its color, so I have added Sand Dollar to its name to make it sound authentically Native American. grin
Just read V&V so now I know what the car is!
Ginnie Hart: Aha! Yes. Thanks, Bill.
This is like a scene in a movie Ginnie...love the colours here!
Ginnie Hart: HA! A movie it's been, Ronky. I love the thought. Thanks.
Looks as though it has been abandoned on a dyke smile
Ginnie Hart: Not abandoned, Tom, but definitely on a dyke. smile Good eye.
So it's goodbye to Granny Towanda, I look forward to see what the Skoda's name will be. Will catch up with V.& V.shortly, we've been here and there all day now Maureen is driving a bit more out of town now.
Ginnie Hart: We think we'll call it by it's color, Brian, which is Silverleaf. Sounds very Native American, which we both like. smile So glad to hear Maureen is driving a bit more these days. YAY.
You certainly miss this green beauty Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: A little bittersweet to see her go, Richard, but we're really enjoying the new car!

I like your photo very much - and I remember well your 'old' green car which was always your good, true comrade while exploring the Netherlands. But your new car is also a fine fellow and has some advantages as Astrid explained me. I don't know the title phrase and I have a problem to understand your text. But I think I have understood the main intention of your thoughts.
Ginnie Hart: Bless you, Philine, for trying to understand the idiom "between you, me, and the lamppost." It's another way of saying "between you and me," like when you share a secret. We'll always remember Granny Towanda with great fondness, of course, while enjoying our new Silverleaf. smile Bedankt.
I love the colors... varying shades of green is so peaceful.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Hollie. Green is a calming color, isn't it. smile
I love it! excellent Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.

life in the countryside, making a half turn attention!
Erase also
Ginnie Hart: We happened to park next to a lamppost on the dijk, Pat, and loved looking back to see it there. smile
