They talk about the American’s love affair with her car - Sunday afternoon I posted my car on Craig's list. I love my car. My Texas friends will understand. It's not quite so bad in Seattle where we have a wonderful transportation system. This time of year, with the agreeable weather, riding the bus is not all that bad, but wait until it starts raining. Fortunately, I will be gone by then. Those of you familiar with Craig's list will understand when I say I was disappointed that I didn't get any calls within a couple of hours of posting - then the phone rang, half an hour before our dinner guests were scheduled to arrive. Just as they drove up, there I was - driving away with a long haired, bearded young man (did I mention how cute he was?). Later, at dinner, I found out our friends thought I was driving away to my new life - if only it was that easy.
