A Sure Sign of Spring

Even though it’s snowing and gross here today, I saw a sure sign of spring – Canadian Geese. Check out the picture.

I was on my way back from having my car tested for emissions, it passed but then I knew it would.

I have a 2001 Ford Focus that has 13K miles on it. Everyone is always amazed that I have so few miles on my car. But living in the city, I only drive to and from work (2 miles each way) and to the grocery store (4 blocks) and the likes of Target, Costco, Wal-mart (about 6 miles each way). It’s funny because when I bought the car I needed it, I was driving back and forth to the airport several times a week as an air courier, but then I got a desk job and I hardly drive. The good thing is that I only have to fill up on gas about once a month…but now with gas at more than $2.37 a gallon.

It sort of makes me mad that prices are that much, but I don’t feel bad for the big SUV, Hummer, Jeep drivers that have a 25 gallon tank and get 3 miles to the gallon….oops!
