Way To Go Albert!

28 Jun

Some of you remember mommy buying her little Smart Car last Spring. This is it in the picture to the right. She just loves that little car. Can you understand her miniature phase? Miniature pot bellied pig – miniature car. Yep, mom is hooked – snorts.

It is a small car. Mom named it “Albert”. Do you get it? It’s a Smart car and Albert Einstein was smart thus she named it Albert. Funny how mom’s brain works that way, right? Double snorts.


It’s really bigger than you think on the inside. It doesn’t ‘drive’ small. It drives like a big car. This is the back of Albert opened up. See, lots of space in there. AND, the bottom part of the ‘trunk’ opens up for storage. The back part is just big enough for me to sit in and oink while mom rides me around town. I love that! There’s also enough space back there that mommy feels it up when she goes to the grocery store.


And this picture shows you the inside of Albert. It’s really not bad. Mom/Dad get in it and put around on the weekends all of the time. Now, the downside is that Albert is only a 3 cylinder. Yep, I said THREE cylinder. So, power is not the upmost when mom goes back and forth from the worky place.



And the best part is in this picture. There is a mat that rolls back so you can let the sun shine inside. It’s great to feel that sun on my little piggy body when we are driving. But don’t get me wrong. Albert has a great air conditioner/heater, radio, etc.


I tell you all of this because Albert turned 1 last week. Mommy has had him an entire year. Albert had to go in for his first physical and oil change – oil changes are only done every 10,000 miles! It took mom an entire year to get there.

He passed with flying colors! Way to go Lil Albert! Sniff – sniff, he’s growing up. I think him and our other car, Tank, (he’s a Equinox) had a little party in the driveway. They’re close like that.

But do you know what is funny? When mom comes home from the worky place, sometimes the kids in the neighborhood try to ‘race’ her down the street to our house. Now, she could beat them if she wanted to but she doesn’t. She lets them win every single time. Isn’t she the best?

    What a fabulous little car. Your Mother is helping the planet and her hip pocket at the same time. Her and the car are indeed smart!

      snort – thanks my friend. She does love that little car. Daddy has finally come around and likes it more now than he first did. I think he was sulking at first because she traded in her sports car for it – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Love Albert! I’m a miniature fan as well so I can well understand why your Mom loves Albert as well. Great little cars. Happy Birthday Albert!

      oh yes! Did someone say party!?!? You know we did have a sort of party last night. I can’t tell you why – you’ll have to wait until the ‘official’ cough cough birthday next week but neighbors and nana came over. AND there was cake involved. I might have gotten a little nibble of it 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    Mom LOVES “Albert!!” Mom has a Honda Fit which is larger than Albert but not by much!

      I’ve seen those! They are so neat. Mommy has grown very attached to her little Albert mobile. She’s the only one that has one in the area. All of her ‘work’ friends see her all of the time driving around town, blow their horns and wave. And, people still laugh at her. XOXO – Bacon

    Well happy birthday to Albert. I drive a kia soul and I’m pretty happy with it. No name for it yet, but I’m pretty sure its a boy. Maybe I should name it b.b. after you and bashful. What do you think?

    Yay for Albert! Have a nice carday and may you run safe for a million miles! Our elephant skater is called Adam (for Adam Opel) but I would name it bin for all the bread crumbs and candy wrappers my Grampy forgot there :o)
