The 'Joys" of Motoring..!!

I’m sure at one time or another everyone has owned a “Bomb”…..
thats a car that seems to spend more time OFF the road than ON….

Now I’ve a little Morris…..that’s a mess to say the least…
if I thought Last Rites would do it i would even call a Priest…
We ‘fixed’ the gear box and the Engine, but we just can’t come out winners,
we’ve had more Yellow Stickers than the Cops have had Hot dinners..!!

I thought I’d watch a Video so off I went to Town……I got a “Yellow Sticker”..!!
the exhaust was hanging down…………..
we ‘Fixed’ that……..and we thought by now we must be getting smarter…
till the next time that I went to Town and jammed the rotten Starter……….

The Windscreen wipers work OK….and the lights flick up AND down…..
I use the indicators ….sparingly….whenever I’m in Town…
and I NEVER use the Horn…OHH NO..!! I’ve given that away…..
ever since the……. !*??&#^%@$…..thing got stuck…..!!!
RIGHT outside the RTA…..!!!!!!

“She’ll get you up tp Perth” my Husband confidently said….?
what he hadn’t really counted on was the Gasket…on the head….!!
IT WENT..!!!!!! with Clouds of Smoke…….COUGH …!!! SPLUTTER !!!!! CHOKE !!!
and then it Died………………………………..
we BOTH sat there is Silence……as i steered it to the side……..
But I didn’t leave it sitting there……..abandonded…..on its own………..
I coaxed one last feint spark of Life………and gently eased it Home……

Now……….its sitting in my driveway…..all forlorn, its life is Spent……
what used to be Get up and GO….just got up and WENT……
what it needs is a new Engine…………Body….Wheels……that way you see
the Boys in Blue will Have to pick on someone else instead of
ME…………………………………………..
