The view from my kitchen...
is very unappealing.
We are showing our local weather today for Show and Tell. It was so bright today that my snow pictures didn't turn out. So, I had to show you my snow against an ugly, brown AMC Pacer, circa 1976.
It's horrendous. And I have to look at it. Every day.
I once considered crashing into it and blaming the ice, but that would ruin my nice, comfortable mini-van so I opted out.
The owner of this car knows that it's ugly and keeps it in her side yard, rather than in her drive way, or her EMPTY garage! It's presence graces the view from the alley, which also happens to be the view from my kitchen. Is it any wonder I don't want to do my dishes?
The car rarely moves. In spring and fall, the nice, lady neighbor lines the back of the Pacer with garbage bags and fills it with her yard debris. When it's full she drives it to the land fill, then comes home to VACUUM out the ugly Pacer. After vacuuming, it sits. Waiting for it's next trip to the land fill. It is a well cared for ugly car.
And this concludes my Show and Tell. Can't wait to see yours!
