Showing its teeth

February 5, 2012 Leave a comment

We have no garage so our car is always out in the open.

Fortunately it’s in a relatively sheltered angle of the house, protected from northerly and easterly winds which are the worst.

All the same, it has a rough time of it and is showing its teeth in a grimace to prove it.

We run the engine for a short while every day, and hope that it won’t seize up.

It it does, we have an additional problem because the opening mechanism of the bonnet is very dodgy. A local garage has said they’ll repair it, but they’ve asked to keep the car for a whole morning and that would mean yours truly sitting in the nearby Bar for the duration since there’s no alternative transport home.

I’ve no objection, but there are always other things taking priority.
