I especially like the BMW tire rims. Adds a real touch of class, don't you think? I am sure the BMW's owner did not miss them.
So we have a mural series going here and now the Beetle Series. There have actually been two previous entries in the Beetle Series. You may have overlooked this little survivor:
He does merit Parking Space No. 1 up at the plaza. I can verify that he has a Virgin of Guadalupe decal in the rear window right where it belongs, too--obscuring the driver's vision through his rear view mirror:
My daughters and I used to play a game in the car on long road trips when they were very young. I cannot remember what we called that game. Anyway, the first to spot a new and different Beetle on the road or parked nearby got a point.
Kindly send along any digital portraits of Beetles that you may have and believe might merit inclusion in the Beetle Series. Attach them to an email addressed to my lawyer, Hugo, at email@example.com. He will scan your emails and attachments for viruses and forward them along to me.
When everyone settles down, goes home, and stays there, this place can become downright civilized. No aerial bombs. No tractor trailers without mufflers down shifting while descending the big grade at the edge of town. The traffic is light on Calle San Antonio a block away. Even the dogs have shut up. I originally typed, "Even the gods have shut up." Them, too.
Just the crickets chirping. And me rustling around occasionally. Very cautiously. I do not want to set anything off.
It is a thoroughly peaceful, pleasantly warm and still Sunday evening in San Miguel de Allende right now.
