We took a road trip to visit my Mama a couple of weeks ago and she said, "You've put so many miles on your car." And I said, "That's what cars are for: to drive."
Today when I took in the fancy hybrid for a check-up, my friendly technician Walt said, "You really need new tires."
So I walked home. Surveyed the sites from foot rather than the 20 miles per hour creep through traffic that I usually do.
