Hermione's New Home

One more and final post on the vehicle situation should just about do it.

About 40 years ago, I was in two accidents, a year or two apart at the time but close together in retrospect. One was deemed my fault, but I was rear-ended in the other. I was accident free until this summer when I was in two accidents. One was my fault; it involved a tree and no other vehicle; but, once again, I was rear-ended in the other.

Each of this years accidents involved photography. In the first, I was backing onto a grassy, treeless verge to park the car, so I could get a picture across the street. Except the the treeless verge wasn't ... treeless. The car was easily repaired, and off we went. The second accident also involved us wanting to stop to take a picture, but the guy behind didn't want to stop. /shrug/

Anyway, I am not about to give up photography, and here are some pics to prove it although Sue took the last two.

Getting ready to take Hermione (yes, that's her name) to her new home

A little later, we were about to take JJ for a little runabout. Notice the winter coat.
I was wearing it for the first time this season.

Our first passenger. I think he liked the ride. He has a new coat.

Behind the scenes of a CRV illusion ad. I only saw this after the purchase. It wasn't the reason for purchasing a CRV. I swear. Pretty neat: it's worth watching.

Nice to meet the new ride, AC and what a fun ad that nearly makes me want to have that car...but not for a few years when it's time to replace the Jeep Liberty.

that looks like such a lovely car! We had a couple of Hondas over the years, and I really mean over the years. Loved them. As much as JJ

Hermione! Good choice.

Loved the ad, especially the archways. Really inventive people there!

Wow! Y'all have been busy!
Love Hermione...she's a beauty!
All of your photos are Gorgeous (as usual!) I do believe of them all, and it's hard to choose but...the spaniel's shots are fantastic! I'm in Love with that face!

you named the car after Harry Potter character? or another root?

What a great video, loved it! Such clever and imaginative illusions, loved the very first one with the men jumping from column to column! brilliant.
Never had a Honda, my previous car was a VW Golf and the current wheels is Mazda 3.
