Craving Carlitos and a new car

Hola Hola Hola My Beautifuls!  Do you remember the old song "Torn between 2 lovers, Feeling like a fool."?  Queee?? JU SO FONII!!! No, the wedding is still on, Sweetie and I are fine thank you.  The two lovers are Chevrolet and Ford.  Now, aunque BB's is Una Familia Pa' Ford , and I was just recently Flowing with Ford,  I couldn't help but miss Carlitos.  We were in the trenches together and he always had my back. You don't forget things like that.  Bueno, in case you've forgotten, here's the first time I saw him.  Continuing.

I missed my compañero and though I wasn't about to go back to Miami just to see him, I did win a Macy's GC if I'd visit his family and test drive his newly updated older primo El Malibu. Not one to refuse swag, BB went to my local Chevrolet dealership to do some holiday wishing and to send them his love.



Unfortunately the flag was at halfmast because of the CT shootings, but it was nice to know they cared.  In a  silent but real way that spoke to me and I appreciated it.  I also appreciated Mr. John Myers, the gentleman who tended to Sweetie and BB.  Mr. Myers smiled knowingly when he heard my Carlitos recount- "Yes, Chevy did it right when they did the Cruze.  It's hard to beat."  Boy, he wasn't just whistlin' La Guantanamera with that one!

Sooooo hard for Babushka to choose, but choose I must.  
My dear Stan the Man has almost 200,000 miles on him- he's digno of a good retirement.  

I think I'll take a clue from the dealership and let the holiday spirit guide me.




Babushka started this post with a song and I think I'll end it the same way.  
To quote one of my favorite Christmas carols, "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas"-

as for me i have no clue
so i'll go to rest
choose for me dear Santa Claus 
what you think is best!!!!

Honestamente, I recall the lyrics as:

as for me my little brain isn't very bright,
choose for me dear Santi Clo, what you think is right.


I'll let you guess which version I like best.

; )



Which do you think Santi will bring?  What did you ask him for Crisma?

Whatever it is I hope you receive it, but above all -

I hope you receive the love of the season.



Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.
