ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec. 31

Driving my family to the Sarasota airport, the car next to me on my left , was a Bentley SUV. I have only seen pictures of Bentley's in old picture books. I never would have known what car it was except the name was on the body and the hub caps had a B on them. I ,also , didn't know that a Bentley could be a SUV. My grandson was riding shot gun and he seemed impressed. Impressed enough to look up ,on his cell phone, how much that model was. $140,000.00. $140,000.00 ! That amount of money would buy fresh water for a third world community. It could feed hungry families that lost what little they had ,to flooding or draught. $140,000.00 for a grey car. Returning from the airport, I was stopped behind a Kia. I know what it was, because there was an emblem on the back that told me. It was dark grey and to me ,looked just like that Bentley. Funny thing is, it did exactly the same thing that the $140,000.00 car did. It went forward and reverse. It needed some kind of energy as fuel, same as the Kia. it had 4 tires, same as the expensive car. But for some reason, I felt better about the Kia.
