Writer's Block: Baby, you can drive my car

Do you have a "dream car"? If you had money to spare, would you buy a new car? If so, would you be more likely to get an eco-friendly vehicle, a vintage model, or a luxury sportscar?

No. No dream car. Currently I drive a 1994 Suburban junker (and I'm a soft spoken, plain-dressed wallflower, just so you'll know).

I'd show you a picture of it, but you might be appalled at the mulch bits, pine needles, and dirt that are in the back of it because it doubles as my garden and haul-away-everything vehicle.

We do have other vehicles, but somehow this is the one that's always left in the driveway after everyone leaves in the morning.

If I had money to spare, would I buy a new car? No. Too many other urgent needs going on around me at the moment. I'll drive this until it stops running or until the Lord returns - whichever comes first.

OK, you win. Here's a picture. But, showing you this brings me to the epitome of humility.. Yep.

Photobucket.

Just needs a dust pan and brush- not so horrid! I actually own a small set made for cars and keep it under the front seat. If I'm waiting for the kid's bus, or watching the kids play in the yard, I wash bird droppings off my windows and sweep out my floor mats, etc.

There is nothing wrong with this. You're a mum on the run and this is a working car. All of this, means, of course, that my Honda CR-V is not in mint condition.

That car will always have a fond place in my heart. I was so relieved when we traded in the purple van with the broken window!

HaHaHa!!! That purple vanagan with the taped up plastic across window that was bad news for the person sitting in the back seat when it rained.

The girls feel exactly the same way about the Suburban as you did about the vanagan. I'm serious.
