Ok ok ok. So, a mere 24 hours later, the precious Limo has been returned to where I left it, as if by Magic. Phew! AND… all valeted, filled up with fuel and the tyres dressed. No damage, just some familiar looking FUR on the driver’s seat and 500 more miles on the clock than when I last used it. 500 miles in 24 hours..? And, oh yes, an empty Vodka bottle in the glove box. Sounds a bit like what sometimes happens with the Valet Parking service at Heathrow airport…
And the Old Bill have contacted me. They have CCTV footage of The Suspect - a notoriously cheeky Rascal with previous form for ‘borrowing’ Luxury cars from their owners. Trouble is, he ‘bears’ (first clue..) a striking resemblance to You Know Who (next clue as if you haven't got it already…).
What to do? The Limo is back safe and sound but Tedski has gone AWOL. But.. hang on a minute.. who’s that on WSM beach making a giant sandcastle in the shape of an old car?
To quote the lyrics from a famous 1960s Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes song: ‘If You Don’t Know Me by Now…. da de da de da etc’
Now, Hands Up: I apologise for, and hereby solemnly promise not to keep writing these silly stories which, for better or worse, take-in some of You Lot hook line and sinker. Well, for the rest of this week at least…
But seriously, thanks for your genuine (if mis-guided - sorry!) concerns. But it just goes to show what a Sincere and Genuine Lot you are when the chips are down.
Enjoy your weekend - and if you suffer from PRED HEAD don’t leave your car keys lying around. You never know WHO might be waiting to snaffle them
