Update . . . for those of you who remember my post last week . . .
I wasn't KILLED after all. After breaking the news to hubby that I purchased a 2007 Prius - fully loaded - and some agonizing moments afterwards (poor guy) - when I picked him up from the hospital yesterday he said
"I was kind of hoping you got the blue one"........... :rofl: PHEW!


This is my new baby . . . Meet Prudence!

He loves it......the mileage is great!

Congrats to your whole family, Prudence included!

11. Good - so I'm not . . .
the only one who has to name their car(s)?

Since they join the family - I think it's only proper that they have a name and their own identity.

I'm sure you are liking yours. I have yet to sit down and read the manual to figure everything out. Hopefully I'll get some time tomorrow to do so.

I've already stuck an anti-oil sticker on her bumper.

:hippie:

15. I also have a silver '98 beetle . . .
named Dougie. or - 'Doug the Bug'. He's pouting now that he's been relegated to the driveway while Prudence has taken over his space in the garage. Oh well - he'll get over it. He sports a DU sticker as well as a 'City Lights Bookstore' sticker.
