Here's one for you guys to ponder on:

Once upon a time there were 3 Indian squaws. One slept on a Deer skin, one on an Elk skin, the third on a Hippopotamus skin. All three became pregnant. The first two each had a baby boy. The one who slept on the Hippopotamus skin had twin boys.

This just goes to prove that….. the sons of the squaw on the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws on the other two hides.

[Those of us who have long forgotten their Pythagorus theorem may need a bit of help with this one]

Steve, the Smart Car fits your criteria. I bought my 2012 new in Nov 2011 for $14K. And before you say you wouldn't fit in one, you better go test drive one. They look small, but think of it as just the front half of a car. No back seat or trunk, but enough space for lots of groceries behind the seats. 40 mpg, excellent safety, really fun to drive and at only 1480 pounds it tows so easy. Also, the body panels are plastic so no rock chips or parking lot dings. Mine came from Ewing in Plano.

Steve,

Mini Cooper, convertible to have some fun in. Bigger than a smart car.

Barb and Wayne - I don't see an automatic transmission Smart car or Mini-Cooper on the dinghy list from MH magazine or FMCA.

Have appointment back at Chevy place tomorrow at 1. Leaning toward the Equinox at the moment.

I have to agree with Dave. ....

I also looked at the Traverse and Equinox and the the Edge .... in my humble opinion you would do well with a 1 or 2 year old Jeep product with a transfer case to tow 4-down.

I suppose you can find a gently used Jeep - but I have looked and looked until I can look no more. They are not here in the DFW area anywhere - and when you find one the premium is still there. I think perhaps I am just not a Jeep person - and I know that I do not like any car dealers and so far the Jeepers are the worst - in person - on the phone and on the net. JMHO.

Nope. We bought the Wrangler to tow. The MKX is a garage queen.

Garage hog you mean. Earlene's Town Car is the same. It owns one side of the garage. I keep the other side messy and cluttered just to tick her off. (oh oh, she reads these posts. I'm in trouble now.)

BTW: today (yesterday, the day before, and the day before and the..... well you get the picture) she was complaining about some yard work that needed to be done. We have a lawn service but they are only paid for certain items. She also complained that the side walk needed power washing. So today I trimmed the hedges, trimmed the trees that interfere with the MH when I pull up to the curb, and generally spent 4 continuous (no rest) hours getting that done. She was out playing grocery cards, visa, master or whatever, at the store. I was just about to start the cleanup when she came home, so I had to help her unload the groceries. (Sound familiar guys). Back outside and finished the raking and clean up.

I did walk in and I said, "I checked my calendar, and power washing is not on it for today."

So, my story for the clean up of the garage is, it's hot, I'll wait for cooler weather. Then, it's to cold, I'll wait for warmer weather.

Works for me.

On Shady Creek - the wifi charge here has apparently changed from what you seen when the login comes up - this is what it says -

WELCOME TO SHADY CREEK RV PARK

PLEASE ENTER YOUR ACCESS CODE BELOW. TO PURCHASE ACCESS CODES, PLEASE CALL OR STOP BY THE OFFICE. 10 - 2 HOUR CODES IS $15. UNLIMITED ACCESS FOR 30 DAYS IS $50. UNLIMITED ACCESS CODE WILL WORK ON ONE COMPUTER. OFFICE - 972-347-5384. OFFICE HOURS - MONDAY TO FRIDAY 8 AM TO 5PM - SATURDAY 9 AM TO 5 PM.

I was told it is actually $12 a week - which is $48 a month - but beats the $15 for 10 2 hour connections. I was told this policy will probably change soon - as a change in ownership may occur next month.

We are hopeful the rain stops soon so we can fey the fish.... Starting to get hungry.

Lol.... My fingers are getting a workout..... I was just the first to admit to them....... Smile.....

Larry and power washing is like you and your computer..... Think he has almost as many as he has vacuum cleaners.....
He even just got a power washer polisher.... He was using it the other day and a lawn service guy came over and asked him what it was..... To me it looks like a big metal detector....


Diane is retired and lazy........ So please excuse the fat lazy finger slides.....

Thanks Wayne - League City is the center of the used Jeep Universe... Who knew??

Maybe we will just go on the road without a toad and drive around the country looking for the perfect Jeep deal. Oh wait - we're thinking we probably aren't Jeepers.
