Feeling the Pinch?

Everyone is posting pictures of their recent gas purchase totals. Here in lovely California gas prices are $4.25 on average for low grade unleaded.  I saw a truck deulie come up at $130.00, & have seen a few others at $100.00 and $120.00 etc.

Mr Jones, was hitting empty yesterday so I stopped for a quick fill up.

Maybe everybody should drive an old VW? 😉

 

Read it and weep. $22.98

Season’s Greetings! VW’s on Parade

Mr Jones is impatiently awaiting his spa week in January, for his schedule maintenance. There is a list of things to be done. And the money is almost put together.

Until I start updates on the long awaited Spa Day, I’ve decided to highlight some Holiday VW art.

—–Ryan Conners—–

Today I’m highlighting an art piece done by an artist Ryan Conners. I love her stuff, its fun, and colorful!

She has a blog and sells her art on etsy, check her out! Buy from her! Stimulate your economy by buying locally!

Now, if I can just get Ryan to do a yellow bug with a black cat and an orange dog…my ornament collection will be complete! 🙂

Thanksgiving IN a Volkswagen

Ok, I’m sorry, How much fun would this be?

A crisp autumn day, a festive picnic table, some turkey casserole, mashers, my grandma’s pumpkin/pecan pie, and a jug of warm cider, all out the back of a VW T2 bus? All we need are pilgrim hats!!!

Happily making plans for future Thanksgivings….

GOBBLE GOBBLE!

Gearing Up

This is going to be a big winter for Mr. Jones.

My daughter is going to be attending a college a bit farther flung, and will be commuting in my Honda starting in January (assuming she gets her license-finally). This means that Mr Jones will become my main car and a daily driver, again.

Time to get somebody in tip top shape with a spa-week!

saving pennies!

 

My official Song

OK, so this song, was ALWAYS one I absolutely-loved! I finally saw the video…um surfing, beach, T2…Im in!

This is my theme song!

Daily Driver Adventures

I really wish, I was faster with the camera. But Mr. Jones takes effort to drive. Im gonna have to keep a camera AT THE READY.

It would be so much fun to visually catalog our adventures.

On Friday’s commute, we had fun.

At a stoplight on the Richmond Parkway, a guy in a truck asked if he could take Mr. Jones’ picture. He continued to tell me about the ’65 he was going to bring home this weekend. He asked me a couple of questions and then the light turned.

I often wonder how long those stop-light conversations would last, if the light stayed red.

On the way home from work as I got on the freeway. Lo and Behold right beside me was a 68 bug. Bright Yellow just like Mr Jones!

The driver was an older asian man and his wife…they were laughing and smiling and throwing me peace signs! SO CUTE!

We rode along side by side for about 10 miles down the freeway.

I love the smiles. That’s what Mr Jones is…one BIG happy yellow smile!

 

 

Drive Happy.

Every day can be a good day. Drive happy. 🙂

just cruisin…
