June is Just So…

Linda has given us the prompt of “drive.” I don’t know how she knows what is going on in my life but it seems like she manages to pick relevant topics for me quite often! Driving has always been one of my favorite things to do. My first car was a pedal car and I would drive that thing up and down the block a lot. I had an aunt who lived on the corner so I’d go visit her.

One of my coolest cars was a TR7. I loved to get in that thing and take drives down the coast and on winding roads. I should have paid more attention to it because it ended up giving me a lot of trouble. Still, with the sun roof down it was a blast. I don’t think I’d be able to get into it at this point. Too low to the ground – LOL.

Two years ago I leased a Honda HRV but I really wasn’t happy with it from the beginning. It was a lot smaller than I anticipated and I felt like my head was hitting the roof sometimes. I like to be high up so I can see the road. Last week Honda contacted me to see if I would be interested in trading in the HRV for a new vehicle. I jumped on the chance and traded the HRV for a CRV. I had had a CRV before the HRV (it can be confusing with all these initials) so I knew what they were like.

After the usual wheeling and dealing (with me getting up and saying, “no, I can’t do that,” three times), I managed to make an acceptable arrangement and here is my new CRV!

It is called Aegean Blue and is SO pretty. I haven’t thought of a name for it yet. Any suggestions? It only had 11 miles on it and was covered in plastic when I took it for the test drive since it was fresh on the lot. I look forward to taking some nice long drives in it soon since we got the lineup for the Mountain Winery concerts! June is just so exciting!

      I really love it. You would think we were rich with all these new vehicles – LOL. Not so! We just scheduled 4 concerts at the Mountain Winery which is about an hour’s drive from us so that’s where they will be taking us!
