Trying to stay Kool on this hot summer day... Oh, and it’s Teutonic Tuesday!
I knighted him some time ago, try to keep up. Anyway...

Testing out my new Pixel 2 with some Beetles. I understand Philipilihp is doing the same, Beetle photo battle! My old LG suffered the Bootloop of Death, and I had a mind to just get a flip phone and forget phone smartiness and interwebbing, but didn’t want to give up toy car pictures. Or real car pictures.
