Finally, after two weeks I am posting another blog. Its a good thing Megan was here because I couldn't even remember how to post on my own blog.

When I was younger, I was kind of quiet, not much of a talker. In about 6th grade, I decided that when I was with my friends I would only talk when I had something important to say.
Needless to say, I didn't do much talking. But I did notice that my friends were talking all the time and they didn't really have anything important to say, either.

That is what blogging reminds me of. So I'm figuring out that I don't really have to have anything to say when I blog.

We got a new car yesterday. By we, I mean my daughter, husband and I. My daughter's car gave out on her and she needed a new one. With gas so expensive, we decided to chip in together and get a Toyota Prius. A Prius is a hybrid car with a gas engine plus a battery system that kicks in to run the car. It is supposed to get 45 miles to the gallon. Some people even brag that they get up to 60 miles to the gallon, but I think they are coasting downhill most of the time. We don't have many hills around here, so it will take us a while to break the car in before we get the best mileage.

The money we save on gas isn't going to make up the extra money the car cost, but we don't have to go to the gas pump so often and growl about the prices. We might feel like we can still take a few car trips.

Keep those comments coming. I love to hear from you.

Thanks for going in on the car for me. It will entertain the entire family, no matter what gas mileage we get.

Ooh! A fun new car! Enjoy!

And you know how that Chinese proverb goes "Fools speak while wise men listen." Or something like that.

Glad you're blogging Mary!

My niece Kendra just took driver's ed. and the driving car was a Prius. I don't know if they can learn to drive other cars without all the bells and whistles.
