ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec.5

OMG! The SUV Lamborghini was unveiled today. I  was curious to read the comments. First the price is a little off putting. $200,000.00 . I could feed a third world refugee village with that amount of cash. Then it went from 0 to 190 miles an hour, or something like that.I could be first into the last parking spot with that speed. When I lived in Chicago, I belonged to the East Bank Club, a really upscale health club . I was always astounded when people drove into the underground parking garage with super duper SUV's. Why, I asked myself would you want four wheel drive in the city , where for the most part, snow was removed from prime real estate before the other neighborhoods were, and when you probably go from your high rise valet parking to the underground parking garage at the East Bank . I never felt intimidated by those SUV's. My Gramma van worked for us. But I am impressed that someone would be waiting to buy one. Our first home and only home ,in Evanston, which we bought in 1961,cost $24,500.00 .We lived in it for over 30 years. Bet that Lamborghini doesn't last that long or give such great memories. Betcha.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
