Ode to Suzie the Cube

Two days ago, I cleaned the daylights out of the interior of Suzie Cube.

Now I won’t say I got out the QTips or anything, but I went a little OCD with the cleaning.

(Suzy… QTips… that’s kind of funny actually. I had to point it out in spite of myself.)

Don’t hurt yourself.

After all, it had been a long Winter and Spring that consisted of two trips hauling chickens and chicken feed, a puppy… [boo hoo] and puppy food, plants from the nursery, plus plants for eco dying that I snagged while on forays on the back roads, and piles and piles of things that I purged from my house over the last six months which made the interior look a LOT more like a pickup on a farm than a trendy and quirky four door sedan.

She needed to go to the spa.

Anyway, I wore myself clean out…. [get it?] taking care of the interior and ran out of steam for the exterior.

Today I decided I would finish the job.

She looked so spiffy after getting washed, I had to take a couple of pictures…



That’s a shiny car right there…..


I am so grateful to have this car. Even though it looks like a city car, it’s actually a very capable country mountain goat of a vehicle. I’ve never owned a more reliable car and I do my very best to take care of her inside and out including mechanically. It’s hard to believe, but she’s 10 years old. And just turned over 60,000 miles.

I cannot think of a car that would suit me better than this one and I never, EVER take her for granted.

Though I have to say, as soon as I drive down the dusty lane to the main road, her cute little back end will be covered with dust. But at least for now… she looks as good as new.
