This news is about a baby - but not the Prince of Cambridge (whose name, I believe, is George). When I got all the scut work completed I came up with time to actually think about more particulars of my upcoming adventure. I've been planning all along to install a motor scooter-type bike rack with a ramp on the back of Miss Flair.
A hassle while we were in Mexico was that I was dependent on others for rides - into towns, to buy groceries, etc. So, I've been doing a little research and decided to try out a Smart Car. You guessed it! I bought her this morning! She's very cute and I'm thinking of naming her 'Petunia,' but that's not for absolute sure at this time.
Here are a couple of photos of her next to Miss Flair (permanent name to be determined - along the way).
She just sidled right up to Miss Flair and looks very comfortable. There's actually a lot of leg space for the driver and passenger - only enough room in back for three or four bags of groceries. She has an 'assisted' manual transmission, sun roof, air-conditioning, radio and CD and gets great gas mileage. She's a 2008 model with only 13K miles.
She looks pretty content to have joined our family; Lacy was with me when I tried her out - I had to make sure she'd fit in the car! She gave her approval and away we went - Lacy looking cool, calm and collected as co-pilot.
