I walk a lot in my neighborhood (I have in fact become an old woman), and after 12,000 laps of the same route, I’ve made some mental lists of favorites–houses, yards, routes, dogs with invisible fences. One of the lists is relatively easy to share, so I thought I would do just that. I present to you, in no particular order, my four favorite vehicles in the neighborhood.
To clarify the qualifications for the list, I’ll say that it has nothing whatsoever to do with mechanical reliability. Most of these cars are parked in the same spot every time I walk by them, and they never seem to be gone. There’s a chance that they don’t run at all.
I’m a girl, so if we’re being honest, the report is all about looks. If you’re a girl who knows everything there is to know about engines and such, I apologize for my gross generalization. Also, there are lots of fancy, attractive cars in my neighborhood. They drive well, are comfortable and sporty, and could probably beat my selections in any test imaginable. Despite that, I stand by my choices.
Vehicle 1: Farm Truck Extraordinaire
Vehicle 2: Can’t Beat Some Wood Paneling
Vehicle 3: Just Awesome
And finally, favorite vehicle 4 along ye ol’ walking route: You Can’t Even See the Awesome Plaid Interior From Here
That’s it, folks. I tried to pick an absolute favorite among the favorites. That wasn’t working out too well for me though. As soon as one option was put into fourth place, I thought it might actually be my favorite. It wasn’t worth the mental anguish.
And just to keep you guessing, the next “best of” post will probably be high heels or trash bags or something equally predictable. Best alternative uses for milk cartons. Best non-cruel way to play mind games with your dog (I recommend letting a fly into your house). Best Bonnie Bell choice (Dr. Pepper lip gloss is the obvious choice). I’d better quit before I give away all of the good stuff.

These pictures make me homesick for your neighborhood and the wonderful walks with Peanut. I can’t wait to see you in a few weeks. My vote is for the red truck with the Toyota a close second. I can just imagine the bed of the truck filled with old galvanized tubs overflowing with tomatoes, peppers, and okra!!!!
