MINIPearl has been gone for 3 days. I have not heard whether or not she will be coming home today or not.
In the days she has been gone, my husband’s car also went down, so we have been skinny on transportation! AHHH!
Well, I do not know how MINIPearl is doing or what she thinks, today. But I am quite sure that she will have lots to say about her experience and life in general when she gets back.
She did ask me about the Cash for Klunkers program, though. She wondered why all of those other cars had to be killed. She was happy that people got help to get new cars, who wanted them. But it really made her sad to see that those with a little age on them, just weren’t valued and in fact were “put down”.
Her Question… How is that green? Creating all that waste and more landfill with crushed cars… denying those cars the opportunity to live out full and productive lives? Was it really so important to just KILL THEM? Will the amount of gas saved really balance out what has been lost? Will is really justify the huge expenditure of money and loss of good, servicable vehicles to squeeze out a few more miles per gallon? Unnecessary destruction… it just feels wrong.
I decided to wait and post this when MINIPearl was away. She thinks deeply about these things and I don’t want her to be distracted from FUN by these concerns when she returns. After all, this is a holiday weekend… lots of fun in store for her… we will get out and follow her little red (and newly repaired) nose wherever it leads! HAPPY MOTORING!
