75/365 Green

"Imagine Green"

What's that saying, "life is what happens while you are busy making plans?"  That pretty much sums up this weekend for us.

We had an al-day class on Saturday.  Afterwards we decided to go test drive (well, not me) one of the cars we saw at the Auto Show the other night.  We bought it.  It is a nice car and the manufacturer had nice incentives.  We have been talking on and off about getting a new car; I'm not sure that we had planned to do it Saturday, but we did.

It was late when we got home so I actually did not take a picture yesterday, though as we were going through the car buying process, I was thinking about what I would do so I am saying that this one counts for yesterday's picture even though I took it this morning.

It takes some imagination to see it as appropriate for the prompt "green."

Go with me here . . .Obviously (and thank goodness!) the car is not green; it is red.  However, it took some "green" to purchase it.

This morning when I went out to take some pictures, I caught the reflection of our St. Francis garden in the side of the car. There is some green there in the flowers.  That counts, right?  Again, its a stretch for the prompt "green, " but it was the best I could do.

I am fairly sure that St. Francis would be appalled to see himself reflected in a new car, or perhaps any car for that matter, but in Dallas a car is a necessity.  Though we use mass transit when we can, it is not feasible on a daily basis as one's only means of getting around.  The irony here is that we did take the train down to the convention center for the auto show.
