Boys and Their Toys

Time got away from me this week and the project I thought I was going to post for vintage/thrifty Thursday had to be put on the back burner.

So my "vintage" husband graciously agreed to show off his "thrifty" new toy so that I could join Leigh @ Tales from Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday and Suzanne @ Coloradolady for Vintage Thingies Thursday.

Since my husband can no longer ride his bicycle or go for long walks, he acquired this new scooter last week so that he could still get out and enjoy the nice evenings while I walked.  Tonight was a perfect night to get out and I snapped this picture after we got home (he wanted to make sure you all know he wears a helmet, he just didn't want to wear it in the photo).  This scooter gets over 100 miles to the gallon so it will definitely be a thrifty ride!

Hope everyone had a Happy St. Patrick's day!

  4. Ha! You know he's a pretty good guy to let you get away with calling him "vintage", although, I'm sure {like my hubby} they are like wine and get better with age! However, if my hubby ever called me "vintage" I'd kick his butt! : ) Love that snazzy red scooter and I understand they are very economical.

  24. Have you ever watched Grease 2? The song "Coo-oo-oo-ool Rider" is going through my mind.

    He is going to have a blast with the bike!

  25. Boys always do get giddy and cute about their toys (especially if they have engines!)

    Also, I have a favor to ask...
    I'm trying to win a party contest and would love your help! Would you go here:

  26. I love the "vintage" hubby comment, I think I'm going to start telling my kids I'm not old, I'm vintage! That's a nice scooter. They kind of remind me of the minibike my brother had when we were kids.
    Blessings,

  27. Tell your husband he has a great "ride" I love the red. You can't beat 100 mpg for thrifty.

  31. Love your hubby's new scooter. I want a Vespa so badly...but my hubby would only allow me to ride it around the yard. What fun is that? I want to take it out and explore. Maybe I'll eventually wear him down, but that will probably be when I'm too old to ride it and he'll agree because he knows I'm too old.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That huge smile says it all!! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I can tell he's definitely loving it! I'd like a scooter, too for getting around locally!

  34. Your "vintage cutie" is a keeper. I have a vintage cutie too. Now that he has to wear reading glasses I think he is even cuter! Take good care of him. Any man who will allow himself to be called vintage on a blog for so many women to see, is a real gem!

    Love,
    Susan and Bentley

  39. 100 miles to the gallon?! That looks so fun! I want one!

    When I try to sell the idea to Natalie, I'll explain that it's very fuel efficient! :)
