Every time I go out in my car, and I don’t go out often, I am amazed by the great number of other cars on the road, even at, say, 10:am on a Tuesday.  I don’t understand how that many people have enough money to be on the road what with the price of gas, and a lot of the cars look new.  Mine is old and is covered with the marks of wet cat paws no matter when I clean it.  Mine also doesn’t use much gas.  And when it’s not as cold as it is this January morning, I usually walk.  But I’m really old, so I don’t go far, even though I used to run several miles a day back when I was fifty.  The car is for when I need to carry something heavy, like a gallon of milk or a few potatoes   Not as spry as I once was.
