#512 Driving.

This week is the first anniversary since we bought Lucky:
Yesterday I was tired of riding in a car, but today with the top down running errands I had a ball. In case you've not discovered 95.1 FM, you should. Between home, Kroger and the Farmer's Market I heard Under Pressure (Queen), 1-2-3-4 (Feist), and Fast Car (Tracy Chapman)—all favorites for singing loudly in the car.

I realize the novelty of seeing a girl my age in a car Lucky's age, and I appreciate the knowing smiles and glances of people who appreciate vintage cars too. Every time I go for a drive alone, at least 2 people will ask about my car—and I glow with pride. I know a new car is the ultimate want for most, but I have sentimental attachments to old cars. And a Beetle makes little kids smile every. Time. Everytime. Who couldn't love that?


  1. I'm so proud you are my daughter and that you appreciate things that aren't the newest or the most expensive.

  2. i love, love the vintage beetles! they make me smile every time too ;) and it's the perfect color ..
