Seems I am Not the Only One Who Loves My Car

Oscarz is quite popular out here in the sticks [sticks being said with as much love as I can muster right now].

Yeppers! On Friday of last week a homeless guy [Should that say residentially challenged? What are we calling the homeless these days?] stopped me to tell me my car was super fun and it made him smile. I agreed with him because seeing, being in and driving Oscarz makes me happy too.

Then, last weekend, while driving Squirrel over the mountain back to college [yes, it is literally OVER a mountain] we stopped for gas and the Pete the cashier offered Pooldad free gas if he would let him drive my car. He told him he would ask me.

HA! If we weren't so pressed for time I would've have let him drive Oscarz for free. As it is I will go back one day and find him to let him tool around in it too.

We do pass a Chevrolet dealership on our way home, and this car is perfect for living so far out because the gas mileage is so good, but so far I have yet to see another jalapeno green Chevrolet Spark in the tri county area. Let's just say I am pretty recognizable "in town".

It's 11:41 pm and Pooldad and Wallene should be walking in the door in about an hour. YAY!

[Told you we lived waaaaaaaaaaay out]

Have a wonderful weekend Tadpoles.  If my internet holds out I will do my best to visit y'all, otherwise we'll see ya' on the flipside!

We have recognizable cars in common. I'll have to write about mine soon. Heck, I have a lot of things I should be doing soon. Apparently I haven't changed my ways since we last chatted.

Good luck on "holding out"...I've heard that isn't your strong suit.

(I am now smirking, snickering and running for cover!)

We have a PT cruiser in the neighborhood covered in Jelly Belly jelly beans. You could leave that baby running, key hanging, doors open and music blaring and no one would steal it.

Cops would find you in a minute. :)

Oh, you'd stand out in the crowd, no matter what kind of car you were driving. That big smile of yours will always draw attention. 12:34

Unintentionally, I had two cars that were one of a kind. It was annoying, amusing, and scary one time. I am going to have to see what a Spark is.

No time for free gas!?! Darn.
In addition that that mountain terrain, did you also have to travel "over the river and through the woods"??????
