RETURN OF THE PRIUS

On June 12th, I got slammed, gently, me at seven mph, her moving into me from a stop sign, but the insurance wanted to total my vehicle. It took a long fight and several mishaps, as in the body shop closed that was scheduled to fix my car; a new bid required and so on.

Finally, I got my car back in time to take Jim to the Palo Alto Vets, Wednesday and Thursday.

The Kia rental zipped right along, with doors that sounded and felt like tin. I had very poor vision out the back window. The trunk was miniscule. I felt insecure in it. I’m glad to have my trusty, heavier Toyota Prius back on the road again. Jim has one more short appointment for his eyes and he is finished. We left yesterday with a test of 20/20 vision in both eyes. Pretty good for 74 years old.

While at the hospital, I read the unbelievable story of a man who has a plan to turn half the earth to its natural state. Sound unbelievable?  I thought so too. But, E.O. Wilson has already started. He teamed with a scientist who also believes it can be done. More tomorrow.

  1. natural state as in plant trees? perhaps its possible because 30 percent of earth’s land is still covered by trees… so he has say, 20 percent more to go. 🙂 but i would gladly join his cause hahaha

      Hi Xiangyang, Thanks for stopping by. The Half Earth means removing invasive species and planting or encouraging indigenous species. If enough habitat is saved, the normal, natural things will flourish. Big idea. Hard. I love your blog, by the way. My husband ate balut when he was in the Philippines during WWII and had similar things to say about it. I’m a foodie, too and will try almost anything. But, I now know I will not try balut. I like snails, ok. Snail spaghetti sauce, but you feed the snails on cornmeal, first. Not fresh from the grass. You are so brave.
