Silverlocks and ...

... the Three Cars

Once there was an aging grandmother who had been driving a soccer mom's van for 10 years.  It had been a very serviceable vehicle, taking Silverlocks and her sewing machines and associated gear to many a retreat and class.  It also took Silverlocks, her friends, and her beau on many a road trip, logging over 128,000 miles along the way.

But Silverlocks sensed that a major repair bill was on the horizon because the steep hill she lives on has taken a toll on the van's brakes and tires.  It was time to consider a replacement.  And since Toyota had been begging to get her 2007 Sienna, supposedly much requested by other customers (if you believe that, I have this bridge ...), she ventured into the dealership to try some on for "fit."

The Rav4 was too tight for her long legs.

The Highlander cargo area was too high to heft her sewing gear up to.

The Sienna, no surprise, was JUST RIGHT!

She needs a name
Just in time for an upcoming trip to Raleigh, NC for the NC Quilt Symposium later this week.


  1. She's a beauty!! Safe travels and I'll see you Thursday.

  2. Something else we have in common! I'm on my third Sienna and love driving my car. Safe travels!

  3. She looks great! Have a safe trip. Sharon B in Franklin.

  4. She is a beauty, congratulations!

  5. I am in the market for a new car. Hope my experience will be as easy as yours (seemed) to be. Enjoy your new wheels!
