And another thing...

So I just returned from getting an emissions test. This is the first time I have taken Penny. All of my previous trips with Iris involved finger crossing. If you remember she had a bit of a muffler issue.

I was looking forward to smooth sailing and I pull up and there are 7 lanes open. 6 really short lines and 1 really long line filled with mostly with Subaru varieties. Do Subaru drivers just like to flock together? DUH! 4-Wheel/AWD line. Penny & I got in the back of it.

As I watched all the other cars come & go in 20 minutes I tried to remember the sight of those cars stuck in snow drifts last year during the blizzards. So an hour and a half later.... Penny passes like a rockstar. In fact 2 employees came over to admire her and tell me how much they like Volvos and a stalker gave me a business card to his volvo repair shop as I was leaving. There was a 240 Wagon (88-ish) that came & went while I was there. They also got the rockstar treatment.

It's 2007 and we are in Colorado. Don't you think at least 2 AWD lanes might be in order?

My goal for 2009 is to try and take advantage of rapid screen. I have attached a link for other crafters who might be headed to the elite AWD line:

I will spare you all from my tale of the drivers license office. Good god, it was like being in a holding tank.
