I live in the Pacific Northwest. Clouds and rain, the sky’s fashionistas. Those of us who live here supply our own blue skies—in the form of blue tarps. And we bring our own sunshine, whether in the clothes we wear or the vehicles we drive.
Consider me a Mini Cooper enthusiast. Last summer my better half and I rented this Mini Cooper hardtop for a short trip in July. We rented our sunshine and loved the car.
Then the December darkness arrived. Record breaking rains, clouds so thick sunlight took a nap.
Time to shop for Christmas.
Home Goods recently opened in our small town. On a shelf near the cash registers sat this little number. A Mini-memory maker. Summer, sunshine, speed. It found a new home in our living room.
And a new driver . . . even before the grands could come over and give it a spin.
