There’s nothing worse week kicking off with a rejection letter from an employee. This morning I felt a bit demoralized and heartbroken when scanning the first words of the letter reading “We’re sorry but at the moment we…….”. As a small patch on my wounded heart I just gobbled three waffles together with a Hägen-Dazs strawberry cheese cake flavored ice cream.
Now when I’m done with my plea for compassion and sentiment I want to talk about the picture above, which I found on Facebook lurking through one of my friend’s photos. The level of originality is high and it didn’t take more than 3-5 second for me to decide whether or not I should save it on my computer. Steel chair, young man, Ralph Lauren, country side, gravel road, jockey attire and a golden retriever. It doesn’t get more classic than that and the outfit this Swedish lad is wearing is very appealing as well, a vintage watch would make a cheery on top.
Some of my friend’s sometimes call me old fashioned and honestly I can say that I’m a traditionalist. We 21st century youngsters have great deal to learn from the past. This era of money and computers lacks the wisdom, philosophers and speakers which once existed. Just ask yourself when the last times was that you read or listen to something deep and mentally fulfilling.
Although you’re not here to read about cars the Bentley Brooklands is worth knowing off since it’s the gentlemen of luxury coupes. As my favorite old fashioned object this is one of the few cars on the market with tradition and heritage oozing inside and out. A few of 550 planned units are still for sale and if you’re quick your local VW dealer should with a few phone calls be able to allocate one of these marvelous creations for you.
