She's a Chevy Sonic. Made in the ol' USA.

I just picked her up this morning. Yesterday she had a date with Zeibart.

My son totalled my 2011 Mailbu. Doing the math, the Malibu, w/the options I had on it would have been about $4-5G more money. So, I decided to replace my car with a Sonic and Creative Performance Sewing Machine and added a bike rack for the back (that goes on Thursday) which makes this win-win-win.

So cute!!!! I had an orange Prism for 10 years. I loved having an orange car. No one ever hit it. Good for everything but undercover surveillance.

At first I wondered.. what is it. thats the strangest looking SM accessory I had ever seen.. But then finally It came to me.. its a devise you use to transport your machine.. sorta like a tote bag. FABULOUS.. What a great idea.. Wonder if they come in PINK..

Oooh...I saw one of those at the dealer on Sunday. Thought if I got one I'd get a license plate that said: Julius.

I'm not an orange fan, but that car looks awesome!

So cute! I love it! We have a lime green Ford Fiesta hatchback, so I totally support decisions to buy small brightly-colored hatchbacks! We love ours - it's always cheery-looking, it's easy to find in a parking lot, and we get lots of compliments on it. Enjoy your new car!

Oh, it's one of the Finger Lakes. It's Onondaga Lake which is one of the most polluted lakes in the country lol. Anyway, since Allied Chemical closed down, they have been working out a way to clean it. In the meantime, they have built a lovely park along it in Liverpool which is a village north of Syracuse (and where the pictures are). The Lake Park is what most of us call it. There is quite a bit of activity there-- running, walking, skating, biking, rowing etc. There is a marina off of it, a skateboard/bmx bike park, playgrounds, a Revolutionary Fort, a dog park, a Butterfly Garden as well and The Salt Museum. There used be big salt flats here and it was a big industry in the early days of our community (it's why they call Syracuse "The Salt City"). We also have Syracuse University who's colors are Orange and Blue-- popular basketball team (The Syracuse Orange).
