Don't let the grass grow under your wheels and How many Beetles make five?

Wakey wakey humans!! How are you all? To those in UK-feeling a bit more chirpy now? After last night's football match. Lucky its not like tennis, eh? 69 games each?? What's that all about? Get ready to play the Germans. Yes, of course I will be supporting Germany: I am German.

Anyway, the grass is growing under my wheels. I am parked up on Ray's front lawn. Last night he mowed around me, much to the amusemant of his wife, Pat. You know, Pat, the one that says "I don't know why you don't get rid of him, you have spent a fortune on him already". The 'him' being me! How could she? I taught her how to drive!!

How many Beetles make five? What is that answer? A Beetle, a Beetle, half a Beetle, a Beetle and a Beetle. Is that right? Ray has never understood that one.

No, seriously, how many Beetle Automatics were made and how many are still running? There is a popular forum called that is quite active so there are a few scattered over the globe.

But not many comment here. Ok, if you are shy I won't mind if you get your human owners to comment for you. But it would be good to hear from you and would really make me feel happy inspite of the grass.

When I said comment, I meant COMMENT. Like talk to me! Volkswagen Beetle COMMUNITY. Surely you have some Beetles that can communicate with me!?
I'm getting excited already and it is only half eight!

What do you mean? Remember I am just a Beetle! If you give me more details I will get Dave (dave the human) to give you the answer.

It is always enjoyable to find out what is going on with such a special Beetle.

It worried me a bit to learn about the grass, perhaps when those humans of yours get down to the renovation you could start to get around a bit and deter the growth.

You automatics are quite a special kind, I had never heard about you until I find this blog, SHAME ON ME!.

Finally I have to confess that, much like Ray, I have trouble getting the Five-Beetle joke.


P.S.: I am the commentator formely known as max.o, from Uruguay.

Hi m.c.
How the divil are you?
Old Brian is in poor health (big ends shot). Hoping to start some renovation shortly. Most of the front lawn has turned to dirt now!
