Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Ken's new car.

Ken has thought about buying a ute (utility) for years, but it was never the right time until now.  There is just the two of us so he doesn't need a back seat for passengers (we can always use my car if we want to take extra people somewhere), and he has the money.  For the first time in his life he owns a brand new car, not a second hand one!  He traded his beige Commodore in on a Holden Ute - bright orange!  Before we'd even pulled into to the driveway at the dealer, we saw his car waiting!

Handover.  The man shaking hands with Ken is the same guy who sold him the Commodore 10 years ago, and he was amazed to see the Commodore looking so clean after all that time.  Ken's like that with his cars and bikes though - he really looks after them.  Not like me...

Going for a test drive with one of the salesman, to get the hang of all the electronic gizmos.  Would you believe these cars can actually park themselves???  True!!

Happy passenger!   Note the personalised number plate:  KENSVF.  The model of the car is a VF, hence Ken's VF.

Happy chappy :-)

Hi Gina (Imarni DTE) I love the colour of that car! I am also married to a Ken. I remember at 7 years my Mum brought a Orange Sigma - I was so embarrassed of the bright colour, now at 43 I LOVE bright colours and think gee what a great idea!
