Forty years old and living under a tree!

Near my house there is a car that lives under a tree. The little person told me that it is a Soviet era Volga GAZ 24 and probably forty years old.

The little person also said that Volga cars were traditionally used by Soviet government officials and also as taxi cabs and road police interceptors.

Another version, called the GAZ-24-24 was never available for private ownership and was used by the KGB services.

I don’t think this car worked for the KGB though. It is too conspicuous!

When autumn comes the tree will lose its leaves and the car will get wet. I hope it finds a proper home soon.

Aim high and improvise!

Most people have vines in their yards (except for me – I ate mine) and are busy gathering in the rich harvest. On this morning’s walk I met a young woman who was not tall enough to pick the grapes growing on a frame that overhangs the sidewalk and was using a car as a ladder.

Hmm, did she first climb on top of a smaller car to reach the taller one?
