We went on an adventure with Mr Aubergine this weekend, but we were only 10 miles from our destination when those hot rays of sunshine gave Mr Aub a touch of heat exhaustion and dehydration. To aid his recovery we emptied our water bottles (and our bladders) and continued on our journey! Poor Mr Aubergine was hot under the collar and less that fragrant when we arrived, but we made it. He's not had too many ailments and enjoyed many adventures in his life time. Now 56, the he is still very handsome, if not a little rusty in places, and much admired (by men of a similar vintage) wherever he goes! He is of course an aubergine coloured Citroen Traction Avant, as featured in Maigret, Tintin and my first blog post !
