Got an email from my middle daughter. You know, the drop dead gorgeous, super smart, and generous one. She sent me a photo showing the ideal car color for me. And she was right. If that pink car had been a small station wagon it would have been the perfect car. Pink is far better than green. Perhaps it is time to think about a custom paint job. But I am too cheap–can’t imagine spending 1000 dollars or more on a car paint job.
Just think of all the things one can do with a thousand dollars. I can and probably will start my new business “Doggie Bags and Dragon Cats” for less than 1000 dollars total. I could spend a week in Portland, shopping at Powell’s books and having beer at all the wine bars. How about an extravagant long weekend in Catalina. Or plane tickets to Europe. Or getting a new front yard by having 10 cubic yards of compost delivered onto our driveway. A new garage door opener to replace the broken not-working opener. 150 bottles of wine. Or very boring, about one third of the property tax bill. Sigh….guess it is time to buy that lottery ticket.
