I Love Pie!

We interrupt the regularly scheduled blog for this important announcement ....... insert drum roll ......... I have a new car!  Okay, so it's new to me.  We will have been in Juno Beach for a year, come March.  With our other car at home, in Arizona, I've either been stuck at the RV Park all day long or I had to get up at 5 a.m. to take Hubby to work so I could have our Chevy 3/4 ton extended cab 4 x4 pickup truck (that's a mouth full!) to drive around.  In a "Palm Beach World" of Bentleys and Jaguars it's not much fun to park, what my youngest daughter calls, The Beast.  Plus, it rides like a - truck. 
So last weekend we went shopping!

We came home with this wonderful 2010 Dodge Caliber SXT (whatever that means).  Now I don't have to rent a car when friends/family come to visit and we have a more fuel-efficient vehicle for our sightseeing excursions.

Not only is it low mileage, low price (which Hubby likes) it is pretty well loaded with reclining rear seats and a glove compartment with a place to keep water bottles or cans cooled!  I'm thrilled!

Our daughters are pretty well horrified that we would choose to drive a car that is Key Lime Green but I love it and think it fits into our new Florida lifestyle pretty well.  Plus - I'll never lose it in a parking lot!  Anyway, since it reminds me of my favorite Florida dessert, I'm nicknaming my new car "Pie."  And I bet you thought this post was about a pie recipe.

    Awwww I love your new lime pie! I think the color looks great and is perfect for Florida! It has to be so nice to get around after having driven the "beast" for a while Lol! Although I have to say we have a red pickup truck (Big Red) and she's my favorite thing to drive! Yes she IS a girl! *winks* Vanna
