bloggin' from panera

So I'm writing from a bakery/coffeeshop this morning. I'm surrounded by hazelnut coffee, retirees, and free wi-fi. We'll see how many words I produce before I pick Ken up for lunch.

Ah, yes, lunch. Today we're car-shopping for Ken during his lunch hour. His Contour is close to biting the dust, so we're going to give a few cars a spin and see what he likes. We're checking out Saturn and possibly Nissan or Honda. Probably more shopping will ensue over the weekend. I'm all about getting a hybrid but Ken's wavering on a hybrid, a two-seater, or a truck. We really don't need another sedan so really, he can get whatever the heck he wants. He mentioned a Mustang but I think he's too young for his mid-life crisis car.

ETA: Yeah, baby, just wrote 900 words. Maybe I should come back to Panera after lunch ...

How about a Honda Ridgeline or Pilot or CRV?
Those Saturn and Honda roadsters are pretty sweet too...

your opening comment was funny because my father is part of an old retired geezers club that meets at panera with their newspapers and laptops and hangs out

K8: dude, that's funny. Those old men gossip worse than the women.

B: Yeah, we tried a Saturn sky last night. At least, we wanted to. Ken sat down, realized he couldn't move the seat back, and got out. So we drove a Saturn Vue instead. He liked it, but we'll be trying a cr-v and a rav4 and probably a truck ... who knows what we'll end up with.
