Random 5 Friday: Some of My Favorites

Random Friday Five
1. My favorite mystery authors 
are Faye Kellerman, Tess Gerritsen and Louise Penny. 
I quiver with anticipation when I hear that a 
new Gamache mystery will soon be published.
2. My favorite seasons are spring and autumn.
Spring- because of all the new life: flora and fauna.  
Autumn- for the jewel-like colors of the turning leaves.
3.My favorite home interior colors
 are blue and brown with a jolt of candy-apple red.
4.My favorite car color is red.
 5. A car I would have liked to own is an MG.    

     Here's my honey with his car. 
This was  taken overseas while he was serving
in the US Air Force. By the time I met him
in 1957, he was driving a plain black
1957 Chevy.  Boo hoo!
So it could not be said that I fell for him
because of his sleek sports car!

visit and join in the fun!

Norma, that car is a 1954 or 55 MG TF, the last of the MG T series cars. While you don't see many of them today, many were imported to the U.S. so they are available if you really want one. For example here is an ad for a clean, well restored one:
At this price, you could show it or just drive it on warm, sunny days. Otherwise it is best kept in a dry garage.

Yes! Louise Penny and Inspector Gamache! My absolute favorite and I devour mysteries. She is such a good writer. I loved 'How the Light Got In' ... but don't know what to expect next. What do you think?

Thank you for visiting me at the Irish Garden House. What fun it is to meet new people from Nancy's Random 5. Sounds and looks like you enjoyed a lovely Christmas.
Happy New Year . . .

I'm with you on Autumn: I, too, love the colours. I also once had a small MG sports car but not a 'proper' old one like that.

What a romantic photo of your fella -- thanks for joining in this week Nonnie! xo

Well, as I said, that car was no longer in the picture by the time I met Hubby.

Norma Ruttan said...

thanks, I think he was really handsome!

kids make any gathering special!

I don't know what's next since that book ended on such a high note. I was glad that Beauvoir finally got help and married Annie.

My favorite seasons as well! Same reasons also :)

Susan said...

Fun random thoughts today. That photo is classic. There's still time for him to get another! Not with you on the mysteries, but I like the spring. I can join you on that.

Norma Ruttan said...

Susan, my hubby died in 2006, but I still enjoy savoring photos of him.

Lola said...

I prefer Spring and Fall best too - Summer's far too washed out here in Spain!

A very Happy New Year to you and yours!

PS Love your blog too!

For some reason, I'm surprised to hear that summer is washed out in Spain. Happy New Year to you all
