    It's good to hear about your new car Doug. It's amazing how technology can help us to 'adapt and conquer' (Ellie's motto).

    Wouldn't it be good if all cars could automatically conquer traffic jams ... but it would probably take a humdinger of a vehicle to do that! ....

    Happy automatic motoring!

    Love
    Kayleigh

    P.S It's good your car has got an emergency call out feature - but of course I hope you stay safe! .... and although I believe that laughter is the best medicine, I'd rather not have to go into hospital to get it - as the last time I was at my local hospital, there was a right carry-on going on ... LOL...

    Hi Doug

    Congrats, and good luck with your new car, I hope you will be driving it for a very long time

    I know you what you mean about trying to figure out all the technology in it. I recently bought a new car as well and I call the dashboard the cockpit its got so many buttons to press, digital stuff, computer stuff I can't figure it all out !

    The worst part is the car is always yelling at me ! Bells go off things start dinging telling me "keep your eyes on the road', 'Lane departure' Terry told me I can turn those features off, but I don't know how ???? LOL

    All the best with it

    Congratulations, Doug!

    Oh, the excitement of a new car! I loved driving and the freedom and independence it gave me. I also rather liked rubbing menís noses in the dirt when they assumed I was *just* a woman driver!

    Alas, those days have gone - definitely not a good thing.

    Perhaps you could take me for a spin in your new wheels so that I can get a vicarious thrill from it. Whaddaya think, Doug? Is it a date?

    Hello Doug and Dina,

    Cars have become much more sophisticated since I learnt to drive (and perhaps my dangling set of pink furry dice have gone out of fashion/become vintage in-care accessories by now?? LOL).

    Do you remember the good old days when cars were much cheaper to run and much simpler to operate?? ...

    Hugs,

    My favourite car is Penelope Pitstop's (and I see it's been updated since I last saw it in the 1970's Wacky Races - but where has the lipstick holder gone? LOL ) ..

    I can imagine Dina shaking her bootie and driving Doug round the bend, while driving this cute carla:-

    .. and Doug having fun but finally driving Dina up the wall, while driving Fin:-

    And, of course with Barry's love of all things Italian, he would drive all the girls wild, reving his engine in this racy number! ..

    Sorry I can't continue with this carnival of car cartoons - as its time for me to carefully carry myself away to bed.

    Good night and take care everyone,

    Hi Kayleigh and everyone

    Thank you for your kind responses about my new car. I don’t want to go on about it, but I am amazed at the technological advances in just three years in a similar make and model – and we’re not talking Aston Martin here.

    You’re right Kayleigh, I can remember when cars were much simpler. My split windscreen Morris Minor had mechanical semaphore indicators and the shortest service interval was 500 miles!

    It will take me all weekend to read the manual. But amongst the myriad things this vehicle monitors and, as cc rightly says, wants to tell me about, I have not yet found the naughtiness detector. So, OK daring Dina, if you fancy some turbocharged thrills in the fast lane you’re welcome to come, but no stilettos on the dashboard please.

    Doug x

    Ha ha ha, Kayleigh. I’m afraid I wouldn’t even shake my bootie for the Milk Tray man in a green car. But I might consider it in this “grown ups’ sports car”...

    Mr. Carpenter, I don’t know what you mean! **tries, and spectacularly fails, to look innocent ** And, anyway, if the car is green, I’m not interested.
