he is picking up his new car tonight :) He has already started laying down rules about it, including NO eating and/or drininking in it. He does not want crumbs on the carpet and coffee stains on the upholstery - we will see how long that rule lasts :) Poor Raffles will probabaly have to be decontaminated and shrink wrapped before he is allowed inside lol!

Are you excited too Carole?  And will you be driving it as well?  You'll have to have a quiet word to Raffles about new car etiquette.

IT will be nice to not have to drive with the windows open Summer and Winter :) the AC in the old car doesn't work, and although the heater does work it smells lol!

I am hoping this will not be the case in the new car!

I expect I will get to drive it at some point, but I think I may have a hard tme wrenching G's fingers off the steering wheel for a while!

As it turned out there was no excitement today because the new car was not ready for pick-up, it still neeeds to have the Blu-Tooth attachment fitted and that apparently was onhly delivered to the dealership yesterday, although no-one thought to call DH and let him know there would be a delay...

Let me try to post again - I tried earlier but it would not post .... Your comment about poor Raffles made me spit cookie crumbs all over my keyboard.

Oh man. NO FOOD. NO DRINKS. NO EXCEPTIONS. ;) I don't have a lot of control issues, but food in my car is an absolute deal breaker. (If it's kids... I guess that means that all adults can ask for an exception, lol.) My car is 10 years old next month, but still looks great. And I still love it. I love it even more when it's clean! ~Curly

Too bad for the delay! That's the worst! I eat and drink in my car all the time...breakfast almost every morning plus my one cup of coffee (that I've started making myself finally). I can't imagine not eating in my car...i practically live in it! Is the blue tooth the kind that goes through the radio? I love that feature (except mine seems to be hit and miss lately..i think I need a new phone). So excited for you guys! Enjoy the new car!

It is exciting getting a new car with the new car smell and it is fun to make up rules when you first get the car.  Raffles getting shrink wrap, sounds like he may shrink wrap anyone that comes into the car.  Good luck with the new car and I hope you get a chance to drive it as well.   Cool

LOL Sounds just like Red when we get a new vehicle. It lasts about a month here ... ;) The shrink wrapped comment made me LOL, but Molly's comment about what it did for her, but me laugh harder, not gonna lie. ;) You are hilarious!
