Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby

Alien Wally and Mags have a new addition to their family. Her name is Ruby and she’s a week old. She lives outside, but she doesn’t mind, especially since Alien Wally and Mags bought an ice-scraper for when she gets a bit frosty.

Yes, folks, Ruby is a Ruby Red Seat Ibiza. Seat as in "say it”, not “see it”, and definitely not “seat” as in something you sit on, because one does not sit on Ruby - one sits very comfortably in Ruby. And Ibiza as in "Ibeetha", like you have a lithp. Despite never in their wildest dreams ever thinking that they would buy a red car, Alien Wally and Mags fell in love with Ruby as soon as they saw her. So much so that the Saturday morning shopping trip, ostensibly just to look at cars, ended up with them signing on the dotted line.

Here she is. Ain’t she cute?

PS: Full marks if the title of this post had you singing along to Kaiser Chiefs in your head. Or out loud (with consequent scaring of your colleagues). Alien Wally and Mags played "Ruby" as the inaugural track on Ruby's sound system. And yes, before you can make the comment - they are that corny....

I know the feeling. I just bought a new car myself and consider it also a new addition! :-)
