Daisy puts her wheels up

My dear old car Daisy has retired. She was diagnosed with a terminal
rusty bottom last week, so with a heavy heart I drove her through the
roads of Derbyshire to the old cars' home.

I breathed a gentle goodbye, my breath misting the speedometer, gave her an affectionate pat on the bonnet and left her in the sunshine with her new friends.

Realised when I got home I'd left my special, don't need to turn my neck when driving, parabolic mirror in Daisy. Off to collect it today.

My drive looks so empty.
