TUESDAY’S A TO Z CHALLENGE
Event Type: General Blogging
Start Date: Tuesdays, recurring weekly
Description: Every Tuesday I offer the A to Z challenge walking step by step through the alphabet.
Every Tuesday, step by step, I’m walking with my readers from A to Z, last week we had the “U”-challenge, so this week we’ll take “V” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “V”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “V”!!! Myself I’ll focus on the topic “Volkswagen”:
Volkswagen was in my life symbol of a lifestyle. Metaphors for mobility. They helped to escape from a small local horizon: Just as we climb today within minutes over the horizon of our environment: surfing the Internet! A feeling of freedom.

V for Vintage Car as well, Frizz. 🙂 Great picture.
Here’s mine with Viva Las Vegas. 🙂
great Vegas gallery –
and I like your tags,
they are like a laconic poem:
“bellagio in las vegas,
coca cola in las vegas,
glitter and glam in vegas,
greek inspired column in las vegas…”
and now I have to go to a hospital,
no fun…, it’s 6 a.m. –
and because I’m not a cat,
it’s not a VET who will
try to help me now …
my cat Emily,
waiting for me
to come back from the hospital
to play banjo again –
good luck to me.
VVV – Ha for a change I am ahead of the curve!
This was me hiking yesterday until it got too cold for my hands!

Great vintage Volkswagon – this challenge was made for you ! When my children were young it was the custom to call it a “punch buggy” and punch the person next to you : ) Yep. It was wide spread and not just my kids : )
amusing victory sign, Kathryn!
It was easy as I had just taken it on a hike… Juxtaposition and rotation rule : )
The liberation and freedom of the open road!
I thought of Volkswagon too. I found this post I did, about the FFV
Love your Volkswagens, Frizz. Surf away!
No music on my computer though, when I opened it today. 😦

Got to love a bug!
A beautiful shot! I drive a VW Polo, perfect to maneuver around our crazy traffic.
A karman Ghia, a beetle, a Kombi and all with the same base of engine !
And now, VW replaced it with the Scirocco, the Golf and the Caravelle, so far from the original wagen für das folk, as Ford is not producing the T-Model equivalent, citroen the 2CV… and Tata made a mistake with the Nano in India.
We are not ready to drive those cars now, with no comfort, no air-conditioning, music, …. We changed too
Hiya frizztext! Love those VW beetles!
Speaking of V’s, there is a free V for anyone to use a blogpost. http://wildersoul.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/a-z-vvvvvroooooom/

Haha! Love this!
I still hear the “punch buggy” as I drive down the road these days.
Thanks Gemma! I thought I was the only one!
I hear it more because I drive one, but I actually think it when I see others as well. Old habits die hard. 😉
Do you have a new one or the original ? Love the baby blue new model!
New one. (See my after pic). I’ve had a ’61, ’65, and 2003 bug. Also a 70 karman ghia (spelling????) and a ’64 I think it was, VW camper that got me to California and back in 1970. Now I have a 2013 bug. Love them! Punch buggy!!!! No punch backs! 😉
NO PUNCH ??? You beat me !
I have some fond memories of the VW – as a twenty-something I travelled through 13 countries in Europe, hitting the road in a VW camper … with another couple and their 2 year old son and 6 month old daughter … three months on the road. We also owned a ’73 Super Beetle which has less fond memories of driving in -30F with little or no heat and stalling at the lights … with 3 young children in the back seat. Happily a there was a good Samaritan on the road that day.
Here’s my contribution this week – http://lynneayersbeyondthebrush.wordpress.com/2013/11/26/verandah-with-a-view-in-venice/
oh that little balcony on the top of the roof: how romantic!

Some what slow off the mark, here’s my ‘V’ Frizz – valuing the past –
It’s a bit of a campaign piece.
it needs more honorable people like you in the politics:
because to respect history is an important attitude!

Off to another roaring monday – please have a look at
I like your intro very much:
“Victory cannot only be counted
in the vestiges of vainglorious battle
but rather in our … vagabond thoughts!”
Thank you – hope all is well!
