Veggies and Cars ............

I picked my first cucumber and zucchini from the garden today. By the end of the week, we will probably be inundated with both. I'm ready for fried squash and for cucumbers sliced in vinegar. Now if the tomatoes would get ripe, I'd be in vegetable heaven.
Hubbie and I had been discussing getting a new car. My 2000 Maxima was low mileage and in good condition, but we thought it best to get a new car before he retires. We went to Richmond this morning just to look at the new Nissans to see what they had to offer. Well, he fell totally in love with a new Maxima that has all the bells and whistles. So, we came home with a new car. I still haven't learned everything about it - I have the owner's manual here at my desk to study. Some of the neat features are the back-up camera, the heated leather seats and steering wheel, interface for my iPod, Bluetooth phone system, and XM Satellite radio. I have every intention of keeping this car for at least 10 years and hopefully much longer. Since I've retired, I put very few miles on a vehicle.

Funnily enough, Mr. G has just bought a new car, a Honda Jazz. Can't pick it up until next week as previous owner had a personalised registration plate, which he is taking with him, so we have got to get a new one - rather, the car show room has got to get a new one. It apparently is crammed with bells and whistles, and the handbook is 400 pages long!

I'll just concentrate on where the indicators and windscreen wipers are first, I think!

Congrats on the new car!!! May it carry you many miles and provide many blessings and much safety as well.
AND THE VEGGIES!!!! How exciting is that! We have some voluntary cuke/squash/pumpkin??? growing in our rose garden. I'm leaving them there just for the suspense! Voluntary plants are such a gift, aren't they?

I got my 'new' car a year and a half ago and still need to read the manual!
