cloud9 I LOVE my little car! It’s so nice having safe, dependable transportation. We were very careful when choosing this car, because I had some very particular demands this time. I wanted to get it RIGHT, because I knew I would be driving it a long time.
A. Easy to get in and out of. (I have arthritis in my left knee, and I have to get in and out of the car about 5 or 6 times a day to teach piano lessons.)
B. Lightweight doors that are easy to open and close. (I can’t stand dealing with huge, heavy doors - hurts my arms and back to reach out so far to open and close them.)
C. Decent gas mileage.
D. Small, and easy to park.
E. My keyboard, amp, stands, and music bag will easily fit in the back. (I have to carry all that sometimes when playing gigs.)
F. Comfortable seats that support my back.
This little Suzuki had EVERYTHING I wanted, and some nice extras too! (CD player, roomy back seats, navigation system, nitrogen-filled tires, automatic door locks and windows, keyless entry) Now, I’m very happy, and feel kinda spoiled. It sure is a nice little car.
My old car was hilariously bad. The driver’s seat was ROCKING, because the bolts holding it would constantly come loose. :teehee: The muffler was messed up, so it was LOUD. :help: The tires were out of balance and wobbly. And the stereo speakers were busted in the back. Also, I only had a cassette player. I drove that little old car for a [U]really[/U] long time, and just dealt with the issues. I was very patient…so now it’s so nice to have a car that is comfortable and safe, and pretty as well!
When I took this photo, I had put the project on lots of needles to show the size and shape of the afghan. But, when I’m working on it, I just use 2 long circulars (US Size 10 Addis - 40 inches long). I got the needles from Yarnhouse, the yarn shop I have recently knit samples for. The needles were my payment for doing the samples, so I didn’t have to pay for them.
