Day-Tripping Daydream

I was walking into Wal-Mart recently when this little caramel and cream beauty stopped me in my tracks with an exclamation of delight.  Its owner was nowhere around as I took a quick snapshot.  (Do people still say snapshot?)  Well, I do.

Can't you just see me puttering my way through narrow streets, pulling over into the local cafe for a cup of creamy espresso and a pastry, sitting and jotting down notes for the latest novel I'm writing.  Then I'm zipping off again to the local market, chatting with the vendors as I make a few purchases of flowers, cheese, and vegetables, fastening them into the exquisitely perfect little basket in back.  I know my kids all think this is quintessential dorkiness, but I don't care.

This little moped was just made for fun!

And see?  I already have the cup (got it for myself for Christmas) ...


  1. Hah, sell that piano and you can have it! What would bring you more happiness? Life is short (they tell me).

  2. Hmmm, you do have a thought there...
    It's very tempting, I must say.
