Edna Shows Signs of Disgraceful Retirement!


Edna 2I went to get our ancient Toyota, Edna, out of the garage and she refused to start. This is the first sign of rebelliousness associated with old age! She made an odd growling noise and then sat there clicking her false teeth, daring me to lift her bonnet and fiddle with her terminals…

She 24 years old,
and she doesn’t care,
if others look,
or even stare!
There’s moss in her gutter,
rust on her sill,
her bonnet is scarred,
we love her still!

Forty-six thousand miles,
she’s been around,
but still has her tyres,
firmly on the ground!
Her headlights are dull,
paintwork like a turtle,
given a choice of clothes,
she would wear purple!
