Prius Heaven

10 years ago we arrived at SFO, picked up our rental car and it wouldn't start - turned the key; we heard Nothing. Since we were still in the rental car garage; it was easy to go back to the desk and say - give us a new car; yours won't start. It was a Prius....dah! Well since then, it's obvious that little car has multiplied many, many times - there are thousands in California, we were on constant Prius Alert - there's even a Prius SUV (doesn't that somehow defeat the purpose?) Our dear friend, The Sostmanie's, have a Prius. So ever thinking of our trips together and how we can afford travel - Philip's come up with the plan that they should drive their ooooold Prius to San Francisco - where they are popular taxi's - we saw them everywhere. Philip and Jim could be taxi drivers...while Laurrie and I could, well uhmmmm, needs to involve gardening - maybe we could work at the Botanical Gardens - yes! That's the plan!

Priuses are the taxi of choice in NYC now too! They are bright yellow egg shaped cars whipping around the streets of Manhattan. I can imagine Calif. is covered wall to wall with every kind of Prius.

They really are so . . . um . . California.

But NYC is cold this time of year - SF is so lovely and spring-like and how about the botanical garden thing - believe me, they could use some help with their latin signage!
