There has not been quite so much knitting (or spinning) chez Woolie of late. The reason why? Well, here's a hint.
Yes, I am shopping for a new car. Actually not a "new" car, but simply a car. I sold my beloved Honda Accord Wagon when I moved to the island (The vehicle of choice there is typically a golf cart.) and now I need a vehicle for the world of paved roads and freeways.
Car shopping is sooooo time consuming. Tiring too -- the research, the dealer visits, the test drives. And the salespeople – aaargh! Although I must admit that half of those I have spoken with thus far have been amazingly nice and helpful. It's the other half that give the business such a bad name.
But progress has been made and we have some candidates. Maybe a cute, peppy little Honda Fit.
Or a surprisingly luxurious VW Rabbit.
There are a few other candidates yet to be driven. And, of course, the agonizing "new vs used" decision. The process is both entertaining and painful in about equal measure. But it definitely cuts into the time available for fiber frolics.
