A funny and lovely thing happened to my Volvo P1800E today.

Sep 04, 2019,09:04 AM

While driving back home, a guy stopped me to ask me if I was ok for a picture of my car with one of his teddy bears... 

This is something, a request to take a picture of my car, which happens quite often. So, I said yes. 

The outcome was quite funny... 

Most often this is the Police who stops me... Not to give me a fine, even when I would have deserved it, but just to talk about the car. 

Here, the guy explained to me that the bears were not for sale, but that he made them to give a smile to people he meets in the streets. 

Same thing for my car. I noticed that many people had a smile on their face when they looked at this car. 

Smile therapy? 

How cool is that!

Those are great cars

Those are great cars. I remember them from my childhood when Roger Moore had one in the TV serie The Persuaders. By the way, when I worked a summertime at a factory almost forty years ago, at the same place worked a man who had similar car. I came across ...  

The Persuaders or The Saint

If you wander around Gobelins, Monge, Italie and the like, you cant miss the "ours des Gobelins", there are so many, everywhere.

A nice guy named Philippe is the actual "father" of the bears, so I guess this is who you met. Here is what you can see on a sunny day, at the Gobelins/St Marcel crossing. Back in january, two of the bears got married at the XIIIth district city hall. Of ...

Car smile therapy! I like the sound of that!

Car smile therapy is something that is happening often! In the USA, there are a few car enthusiasts with unusual cars who dress up in superhero costumes and go to hospitals to cheer up patients. The younger patients normally get a big laugh!
