Afternoon drive.

 Thirty something years ago when I was working in the bank we got a new manager who had four gorgeous kids. The youngest of them, Andrew, was barely a year old and he used to toddle off from his mum and come knocking on the back door of the bank. We taught him to jump off the counter and we would catch him, much to his mother's dismay and we won't even comment on what his father thought...........
Even though  Andy left Corryong 15 years ago we still keep in touch, and he has grown up to be a lovely man. A while ago he bought himself a car and it wasn't just any old commodore or ford. Oh no, he had to go and buy himself the one car I have always aspired to own one day......a Mazda RX8, My family all wonder what the big deal is and I'm not sure why I am so enamoured with them either but I have been ever since the first RX came out many many years ago.

So today a small part of my dream came true when Andy came to visit and I got to drive this. Now I am more determined than ever to have one.


We all have our dreams and some have no rhyme or reason but without our dreams we would have no reason to get up in the morning..........would we?

I believe in your dream Jackie! If you work toward it you can achieve it. I love that car! I have a silly dream of restoring vintage cars one day. I know nothing about them, but they catch my eye (like quilt fabric). Have a great day (VROOM!) ~*~Lisa
