I drove to Georgia yesterday to spend some time with my daughter and granddaughter. Since they moved here from CA last month they are now only 4 hours away from me! I am so much happier that they are closer and I am able to just hop in the car and go whenever I want to spend some time with them.
Since we are a one car family we either have to rent a car for me (or Greg to use) while I'm gone or we borrow a vehicle from one of our parents. The latter wasn't an option this time so I rented a vehicle for Greg. I needed our truck to be able to haul some stuff up here to Tina's house. Wouldn't you know it? When I went to get the rental car yesterday morning they didn't have the economy car I requested so they upgraded me into a nice sweet little convertible Sebring! Oh man! Greg started laughing and said "Hey, if you can fit all THAT stuff in here (as he pointed to my overloaded truck) then you can drive this."
Well believe me...about one hour into my trip I was extremely thankful I was NOT driving that convertible. For any of you who don't live around these pesky little critters that come out twice a year - let me tell ya something. They LOVE white objects and the convertible was white and they love committing suicide on cars while your driving!
We call these "LOVE BUGS" - they are a pain! They come out in the Spring and Summer and fly around in swarms everywhere! I had to keep spraying all their little bug gutts off my front windshield the whole trip. If I had been driving the convertible I would have been picking them out of my teeth! Ewwwww, no thank you!
Such a lovely sight - this is what the vehicles around here look like at this time of the year. Nice little bug guts all over the front. Gotta wash those critters off today.
