Share Your World 22nd August: my response

Here are my answers to the questions I put forward earlier.
1.  Do you have family photographs on display in your main living room?
We have a picture of my Mum and Dad, Hubby’s Dad, plus Maya and Maggie as puppies
on the piano, plus two pictures of us on our knickknack shelves. On the wall, we have our fur baby canvases, Barney left, Kizzy centre, and Maggie right.

2.  What was the best vehicle you owned?  This could be a pushbike as a kid, your first car, a motor cycle, or something else.
The best cars I owned were a Yugo 55A I called Harriet and my Peugeot 206.
I had the Yugo for 8 years and it was a great runaround. The Peugeot was the bargain of the century and I had that for 10 years.  Both were reliable and never let me down.

3.  Did you pass your driving test first time?
Yes I did, on February 15th 1978. I never told anyone, apart from work as I needed the time off, when I was sitting my test as I knew I’d never hear the last of it if I failed.
I was the only female in my family to do so as my sister took two attempts, her eldest daughter 8 I think, and her youngest daughter 3 or 4.

4.  Does loud music from a neighbour or passing cars annoy you?
It depends what the music is, and what time it is. Loud music in the evening can be a nuisance, but the last time was a birthday party over the road and it was all songs I knew so I was singing along. It stopped at 7pm. I did have to go over and ask the previous occupants to turn the bass down once as it was vibrating through our floor.
Loud music in cars sometimes appears to be the only way they can be propelled forward. I find it irritating, especially on our small estate and wonder if the occupants of the vehicle understand what tinnitus is.

What has made you smile over the last seven days?
That’s easy:

I love to see her run and play with the other dogs at class, I love her curiosity (especially following the disc of light reflected from my watch in the mornings and seeing her wait for it to reappear from the last place she saw it), and I love to see her asleep, content after her day.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Maya is growing up fast.

    I once got pulled over for playing my car radio too loud. What made it really funny was that I was driving down a dirt track in the country and the only thin* around was the sheep. 🙄

    Lovely answers ❤️

  4. J-Dub says:

    Such an adorable dog. Makes me smile too.

    • She’s lovely…… hard work, headstrong, wilful, but when she behaves, wonderful! She’s only 9 months old, so still very much a playful puppy, just BIG!.

  5. Carol anne says:

    I agree about loud music, maya sounds adorable!

  6. John Holton says:

    Maya’s so cute with the ears. Reminds you she’s still a puppy.

    Have you ever seen the “Columbo” mysteries with Peter Falk? I think he said his car is a Peugeot, too. I remember when the Yugos came out here, everyone thought they were a joke…

    • She’s still got some growing to do into her feet, but the ears seem right for her head now.
      Hubby had a Yugo 45 the same colour as my 55. We had a lot of fun in them though mine had the go faster stripes.

    It’s the “thump thump thump” of music from cars I can’t stand. I don’t understand why people don’t turn down the volume in residential areas 😦

    • I’m convinced that’s the only way some cars can move forward. We have several drivers pass our house with the car volume up full. It vibrates through our floor.
