The sun is shining
And it’s a hot day, Murielle has been working all Sunday morning and finally come back home, I am chomping at the bit to get going…. Eventually she gets the hint, pull the cover away, shove Chris on the passenger seat (poor Chris), he does put up with a lot ! and then rolls my top right to the back.
Oh yeah baby, I’m going topless, what a freedom… feeling the air caressing my back… seat (what on earth are you thinking about?) this is priceless.
I’m so happy, I start on the button, no tantrums today, I am eager to go and behave beautifully 😇😇😇. I cruise along the estate (it’s only a 20mph zone) and then hit the main road, only to find there is a bus holding up the traffic and no way to pass it. Oh well I am in a good mood, I don’t care (yet). Anyway, it wasn’t long before I was on 4th gear and whizzing by the airport towards the western parishes of the Island. After all they have a saying in Jersey “West is best”!
Passed St Peter and its annoying 20 mph stretch, decided to stay away from St Mary as the whole parish is on snail pace speed limit 🐌🐌🐌🐌 and I headed straight for St Ouen village. Murielle had the Ice cream van in mind as the goal for our drive. All of the sudden, the traffic slowed down again, this time, a pony and trap were traveling in the same direction than we were. Chris decided to co-pilot and instructed Murielle to turn left down a small lane, and then turn right (but in fact he meant left, her other right), which she amazingly managed to do at short notice. We eventually came back out on the main road, ahead of the pony & trap. So I happily carried on at a reasonable speed.
I headed straight to the ice cream car park so my humans could get a treat (even though I am not sure they deserved it, but I am in a good mood). Then it was time to head back home along the 5 miles road, a few boy racers in Subarus passed me in the other direction, the horse and trap was now in my way again but I managed to overtake it. I then passed a cyclist … wow, I am feeling fast today, all that respecting the speed limit officer, I am not going over 40mph, honest !
This is the life, cruising the 5 miles road, Bob Marley playing on the radio, I am dancing over all the road bumps and irregularities to the rhythm of the of the music and my 2 humans are chilled out and smiling. Yeah man !!!
Too soon we turned back in the estate and I found myself reserving into my designated parking space, getting ready for the night … 💤💤💤
