Bonnie is a wimp. She has cowered from vacuum cleaners her entire life. At last, she meets one that doesn’t tower over her.
I know it’s silly…..
The Focus is gone. The new owners picked it up today. I hope they enjoy the little car as much as I did. We drove the Explorer all the way down Route 40 into Elkton this afternoon. It’s a nice drive, with lots of different traffic situations – great for driving practice.
The afternoon temperature today was over 50 degrees. I took advantage of the semi-warm weather to get the motorcycle out of the garage and wash it before I put it away for the winter. I took a little ride after (helps to dry it off, right?) I find that I miss riding a bit. As long as the hose was out, I washed the Explorer. It seems a bit weird to wash only one car. We’ll get another car (an automatic) soon, I’m sure.
Gasoline prices are approaching $1.60/gallon for unleaded regular. We haven’t seen these prices since December of 2004 – here’s a chart. Gasbuddy.com is a pretty cool resource. It can help you find the cheapest gasoline in your area, and perhaps save you a dollar or two when you fill up. If you’re buying 15 gallons (an Explorer fill-up), seven cents per gallon is a dollar. It’s not worth it to drive all over the state, of course, but if there’s a cheap gas station on the way there, it can help.
I’m going to go watch a movie now…
