Sad Bug


You don't often see a Volkswagen being towed as they are such reliable cars. And I must admit, it's not really this Bug's fault but its owner's. You see, I did something very, very bad to my sweet, little Bug. I put regular gas in its diesel engine. The best thing I can say is that it didn't get far, but now the engine has to be cleaned and flushed. Hopefully he'll be back up and running soon without any permanent damage.

I miss him though.

More Hawaii photos are on display at Here and There.

You almost get the poor bug drunk! Hope everything gets fine soon and you'll look at this picture with a smile.

I'm not going to comment. Well, I will say that I've done some pretty dumb things in my life, too. I've never hurt a little bug, though! :-)

Ah ben voilà ce qui arrive quand on est tête en l'air. La coccinelle toute triste et sa propriétaire aussi... :-(

OOPS!
If it makes you feel any better, «Louis» almost - almost - put diesel in the tank of the gas-burning Vachemobile the other day...

He realized what he was doing just in time...
