Ailsa @ wheresmybackpack suggested the word “new” for this week’s challenge. I immediately thought of the new year, because, well, you know. But then I looked at Ailsa’s photo and I realized the word new could mean so many things – just like the new year can bring so many new things. New growth, new friends, new job, new diet, new resolutions, new attitude, new lots of things. So I looked through my photos and decided to try something new – new old. Confused. Well you won’t be for long. If you know anything about me, you know I’m all about peace signs and The Beatles, tie-dying and denim, funky beads and VW’s. And ok, sometimes living in the past. So when my son spotted this, he thought of me. He knows his mom :-).
This is my newest post. Old, restored, rejuvenated, retro, NEW. PEACE and HAPPY “NEW” YEAR!
Scoot on over to Ailsa’s @ wheresmybackpack for more groovy ‘new’ posts.
😀 Happy New Year to you and your family, Gemma. Our sons really do know their moms, don’t they. 🙂
That they do 😆
I love it!!! We have a VW bus on our street and we see them driving around. I think it is the coolest thing ever. Now, I will think of you too. 🙂
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Thinking of me. YAY! It’s almost like being famous. Lol. Have a great new year, Angelia. 😉 G
Happy New Year, Gemma!
Wishing you the best, Allan. Gem
In 1964, I was 14 and my parents had one of these. The ‘camper’ version, with a little table inside. Haven’t seen any in years…. until I visited my son in Seattle, where I saw them often!
I drove one cross county back in 1970. Almost made it! Haha. Those pistons wouldn’t hold out.
For some reason, WordPress has chosen to knock some of the people I follow off of my ‘following’ list. I’m clueless as to how many people I use to follow I no longer follow. I don’t know what happened, but as people comment, I get them back. YAY! Thanks for stopping by.
That’s SO you! how fun! Everything old is new again!! I wish somebody would tell that to my knee…. 🙂
Yup, but you’re working on it.
And next to joe, you probably know me best.
Happy New Year to you and yours Gemma… 🙂
Thanks, Bams and Happy belated birthday.
Love it Gemma…they are the coolest cars ever and this one is such a beauty
Nostalgia takes over when I see these. Sweet!
I KNOW! VW bugs, buses, and ghias, ROCK!
I remember those VW’s quite the ride. 😆
I am all about nostalgia. 😉
So well kept VW.
Yes. And I love the feeling of nostalgia I get. Thanks for the visit, Sartenada. (Is that your name? It sounds so musical :-). Beautiful)
