Elmer is a gorgeous 2cv
At the national, Elmer and his family chose to pitch their tent next to Chris & Murielle’s, I have never seen such a gorgeous 2cv. His amazing technicolor coat and rugged look made me look twice at him when I returned from my little stroll… He had a boot extension AND a roof rack on his black roof, what else could a 2cv ask for?
He was obviously well driven and of a mature edge, but I’m no spring chicken either….
Taking it slow
As I entered the field where I would be sleeping, I spotted Elmer being quietly unloaded, as I headlight locked together, I could feel myself trembling and I was shaking my occupants, and no it wasn’t caused by the ruggedness of the terrain!
Puzzled by my reaction, Chris parked me on the other of his tent, so I wasn’t able to talk to him at first. But my humans got a “room with a view” for the night.
Together at last
Once Bruce arrived, Murielle took pity on me and moved me next to Elmer, what a treat, we soon started talking, we had sooo much in common:
- We are well traveled, although, I must admit that he is much more experienced than me in that area
- We both have a set of relatively good humans that look after us well
This said we huddled close together whispering sweet nothing to each other and settled for the nigh… It was so nice not to sleep alone 😍😍😍
To be honest, we spent the following days talking to each others, I even showed off my different horn sounds, to entertain me and he showed me how to eat a human by folding one’s bonnet onto the human when the human is looking at the engine, such fun !
Time to part
Then the dreaded day arrived when it was time for the humans to pack up their tent and drive us away from each other. Elmer promised to come and see me in Jersey in 2018 if the 2cv club organise the national there…. but I also made him promise to come and visit earlier if he could persuade his humans.
I didn’t want to go home and leave him behind, so when it was time to leave, I stalled and hiccuped and did my usual trick of not wanting to start…. unfortunately Chris sorted me out to quick and it was time to say our good byes….
At least, it looks like his humans and my humans have made friends and will be keeping in touch, so I might see him before 2018.
