Kathy..... oh so fun... how did your wife react to that comment??   
What were you and your wife's replies to the clerk???
Danielle
TBH, we were stunned!  We certainly didn't expect that.  We looked at each other, chortled a bit, and then said, "Um, ... No.  We're married."  :D

Seems like everyone needs a car selfie.  Technically this isn't a selfie, since my wife took it.  But it is a car portrait.



This is just a nice touristy pic of me on today's outing.

Beautiful, Kathy! You look great!

As for car pix, nuh-uh for me. The right side is my bad side. I need to go to the UK for decent car shots.

Ha! I was thinking the exact same thing that everyone needs a car selfie. (See my current avatar).

Nice tourist photo too. You are looking really good, Kathy.

Stephanie, you could also come to Australia. I’ll even let you borrow my car for the pic!

Hugs,
Jayne

Considering that I’d be upside AND backward, I don’t think I should be driving.

I say let’s expand the definition to include airplane pics. That I can do!

Oh I didn’t say you could drive! You can sit behind the wheel for a photo shoot!

Planes are cool and should always be included, but that won’t help you with the selfie. The captain sits in the left seat, unless you are including a helicopter in the definition.

Jayne

Oh, the sky is a lot bigger than the road, so I have time to take selfies from my good side. Here are me and Cassie over Crystal River as proof:

No need to apologize, Jayne.  A car selfie album is a great idea.  And airplane pics are definitely acceptable, Stephanie.

You all look great, ladies!

OK Kathy and all of your girls, it now it is my turn with the car selfie...  this pic is from a couple months ago before I cut my hair.   I miss my longer hair, I think I will start growing it out again soon.

Danielle, why did you cut your hair? It looks really good long. Love the bubble, adds a nice touch.

I may be a minority here but I think your short hair looks really cute too.

The picture you posted looks awesome! Amazing how big of a bubble you can blow. Seems like you had a fun day!

I guess, I would have to get I to my car to participate - right now I only have Mall train and carousel selfies of me in moving objects. Hurray to being a soccer mom

OK Danielle,                   14 June 2018

I caught you young lady; I detect something fishy is Denmark; Alaska, aka "The North Pole," doesn't have green stuff a couple of months ago. My news source, CNN, says it is still covered in glaciers and other ice forms. Green won't appear until moss forms on the north side of the glaciers.

So what have you to say for yourself for spoofing us gringos down here in the original 58 states? By the way, I've been to all but 57.

You should be ashamed of yourself for trying to fool this old biddy way down here in Tejas.

Best Always, Love and try to stay warm,
Christine

PS:

That looks like Bazooka Bubble Gum?????
