Look what the Easter Bunny brought me…or as my husband likes to say…it’s my early Birthday present!! Regardless of how it arrived, I’m THRILLED with my little Blue Bullet (aptly named by Claire!)
We traded in my Honda Odyssey for this little guy, a Honda Civic EX!
Saying good-bye to the Odyssey was difficult! She served me well for over ten years..she got the kids through the teen years and moved them off to University and we had many a good time Garage Saling! Ahhh the things that we brought home in this baby…
But she was big (van) and hard on gas and she just wasn’t dependable anymore...SEW it was time.
We looked at other makes and models…but I kept coming back to the Honda…is it any wonder…this is our FIFTH Honda! Yes, throughout the years we have had a total of FIVE Hondas…most were kept for over ten years with the exception of our Accord…she got traded for our truck, which we needed to pull the 5th Wheel. And would you believe that we bought all five cars from the same dealer…I’m sure he clicks his heals together whenever he sees us coming! I think I must be a creature of habit…but why mess with a Good Thing!
And so when it came to picking a car the ONE thing that I asked for was COLOUR…Have you noticed how cars now a days come in eighteen shades of ‘non-colour’..ie. greys, blacks and whites…and then they throw in two token REAL colours. Everyone suggested a non-colour…but I’m already a non-colour!!! A grey car with my white hair would just wash me out! I would HAVE to tie a scarf around the car in order to drive it!! So my real colour choice was red or blue…Red? Nope…been there, done that!!! Sew blue it is!
Here’s the dealer showing me the ropes…(yowzers fly me to the moon and back…but what’s with all this computer ‘stuff’?)
Yup, I’m loving the Blue Bullet! I think we are going to be VERY happy together…(Oh, and the best part…the trunk is HUGE!!heee heee ! (I think I better test drive it to the nearest quilt shop!! Got to try out that trunk!!)
HAPPY EASTER …AND HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!
Have a Sunny Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P
