Moving On....

Are we all tired of the Scary Clown Girl picture yet? Me, too!

So, for a change up, let me introduce you to Harriette:



Harriette is my ride. She takes me everywhere I want to go. She's not so easy on the eyes, but full of interesting quirks....just like me. AND! She came from my friend MolliB who purchased her to prove that a woman can own her own car. So, Harriette reminds me daily about Girl Power. Who could not love such a car?

Anyway, Harriete has driven me to Paducah, Kentucky, home of the AQS quilt show. Above you can see her parked outside the Museum of the American Quilters Society. Below, Harriette is visiting Paducah's amazing Flood Wall.



I am not really in Paducah to pay homage to quilts, or to shop, or any of that. I'm in Paducah waiting for this (see picture #3):


...to reveal it's contents. My sister and her husband have made a baby. And I think that's waaay cooler than any quilt I could ever produce.

All My Love,
Funky C

Funny about MollieB... and proving that a woman can own her own car...

When I was single, I decided to buy a new car with stick shift. could drive stick (yet) but figured owning a car with it would make it natural enough after a while.

I bought my Toyota Corolla from the first saleman who grabbed keys, took me out on the road and taught me stick.

Damn,I miss that car...

Hey it's Melissa! I feel like we are best friends, even though we've never met! Cathy, glad to hear your brother made it out of the danger zone in time.

When I was in college my aunt ran a marketing company, and one summer I did the secret shopper thingie at area car dealers. Every single one of which told me to come back with my father or my boyfriend. Long time ago thank goodness, I have bought 3 new cars by myself since that time.

I walked out of a car dealership many years ago when not a single salesperson would wait on me but couldn't wait to get to the 3 men who came in after I did. My parting shot was: "well, my money is just as green as theirs (the men's) and I was ready to spend a lot. Guess Harold Ziegler's (the Lincoln dealer down the road) will get it."

HZ's did- I bought a full-size conversion van from the salesperson who was at my side before I could look at the second van on the lot! I always go alone....my DH and I have very different tastes in vehicles. I leased my Subaru on my birthday 2 years ago...it's a manual transmission.
