The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 12/2020

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mini/maxi.” Use “mini” (the smallest of something) or “maxi” (the largest) or both in your post. Have fun!

Our first car was mini in 1969 it was an F registration 1967. It was an ex police car from Bedfordshire. An unusual colour, Burmuda Blue a beautiful colour. Mini’s in those days were tiny and basic and not very fast, not sure it could of been a traffic car, but it was probably a panda car.

That is how our Mimi would of looked before we bought it. The blues and twos had been removed from the roof and the doors had been stayed blue to match the rest of the car. We loved it so, we travelled to Cornwall, Scotland and Devon in it. It was a real work horse and we had it when we lived in London , until we moved to Exmouth in 1973.

The above dress is a mini dress the hight of fashion in those days! Talking of fashion, well I just mentioned it didn’t I? I was a window dresser in those days so what with staff discount and proximity to all the latest “gear” I had a chance to follow fashion which included, mini skirts/dresses, hot pants, midi dreses/ coats and of course Maxi dresses/coats. Though in my case, being vertically challenged, the middi sufficed as a maxi for me!

I had one like this in Brown and it had frog fastening at the front. I love my maxi coat and mini dress.

I also had one of these boy it stank!

I loved my Afghan coat but it really never lost its smell. Well I think that’s all I need to say about Mini and Maxi. Let’s ask George and Ringo to play us out, Fab a song that brings back those days to me 💜
