Last of the Mini Drivel for Awhile

We received this from the Mini dealer yesterday.

to me

Just wanted to let you know that the car has finished production and is waiting to get onto a ship. I would guess we will have the car this time next month.

I will give you another update in about two weeks.

Take care.




This should be the last of the Mini drrivel for a while.  Now that I know the  car is built, I've been mini-izing us.  First, since here in Florida the state does not require front license plates on cars, I ordered this for the front of our Mini Cooper S:

Next, I wanted John to to spiffy up his convertible driving attire.  I bought him a driving cap and new Sunglasses.  I told him he looked so cool, just like Samuel L. Jackson and I hugged him because he looked not only cool but sexy, just like SLJ.  John said, "Who the hell is Samuel L. Jackson?"  Now take my word for matter what you may think. We, "We" being  Americans, are NOT like the English.  We don't even share a language, much less cultural icons, ok?  Get that straight.  We vacuum, they hoover.  We eat fries, they eat chips.  We don't mind the gap.  We don't even know what the gap is.  And if you, as an American say "Crikey Bill', you just sound affectatious and downright silly and the Brits will take the mickey on you behind your back.  Keep all that in mind. 

So , take a gander at these side by side photos and tell me what you think...

Don't you think  that except for the fact that John's a white guy and has blonde hair and blue eyes and is older and Samuel L is a Black guy with a goatee and probably a bigger winkie for sure (my fantasy, you don't have to share it if you are disinclined, that's ok) and younger, don't they both look cool and sexy and if you squint your eyes into little slits, don't they look alike?  Yep, I knew you'd agree with me...

John looks very much like a "kewl" beret wearing convertible driving English gentleman. I did not have to squint to see the resemblance.........Oh, and I know fer sure that John has a bigger winkie than SLJ.
"Winkie"? Is that British for "package"?
Good luck with the new car!!!!!

SLJ also wears a kilt and plays golf... Just saying...
Hope your BRG Mini is all you've anticipated...
