Baby, you can drive my car...

Ok. So I'm not the Beatles and it's not my car. In a previous post, I was tellling you about putting stripes on a car, and that it's not as easy as it looks.

Some of you (my Dad, amongst others) whished to see the finished product. Well, Tadaaa!! Here it is, before...
and after...


The "after" picts were taken during our European exhibition and you'll notice that I took our company logo (to spare the innocent, as Mrs. TBF would say).

So. If I can do your car, just let me know. I will also record my new swearing technique, if you want (depending on how difficult the task is ;-).

As for the rest of the week, OrangeX and I just relaxed at home and celebrated our birthdays in peace and quiet. Also nice, no?

Yesterday, we went out for dinner to celebrate and in the rush, forgot to take the camera along. Oh well. The food was great. The funniest thing was that towards the end of the evening, this guy walked up to me and said: "Don't I know you from somewhere?". I looked at him and suddenly, my eyes beamed: "Christian!". Believe it or not, it was my tutor during my apprenticeship at Swiss Telecom 20 (!!) years ago! He sat a table away from me the whole evening and I didn't notice (ok, he was sitting almost behind us). Such a pity that I didn't have my camera with me. We chatted for about an hour, or so, and exchanged e-mail addresses. I'll keep in touch with him.

That is all for tonight. I'm still battered from last week's exhibition, so I'll take it a bit easier for the coming weeks - if I can :-)

I think you maybe just found your new career, CS! HA :) I love it, even though I know it was a real "swear-job!" You did good!

And don't you just love those full-circle times when you bump into someone from the past. That's happening to me right now, with someone from 15 years ago. I guess when we live long enough, it happens more often :) So glad for you.

Ginnie: Maybe I have, but I don't know if I'll have the patience ;-)
And yes, bumping into Christian was so much fun! I've got his e-mail address, so we'll be keeping in touch.

That's really fab! I can just imagine how challenging it would be to do!

Fab- You bet it is!

Dad- Thanks :-)

Babs- I wonder why some can see the picts an others can't.

T1- It was quite a challenge considering that it was a first for me and time was also an issue.
