Geo Tracker’s new Crochet Spare Tire Cover

geotrackercover

It’s a big transition going from a Pink Volkswagon Beetle to a Geo Tracker. While I love my new-to-me Geo Tracker, it needed a little bit of a feminine quirky twist in my opinion. I know males on the road will not like it (heheh) but I decided to have a custom spare tire cover crocheted for it! I found a lady on Etsy name De’ Anna to make me one, and it you are interested, here is her esty shop where you can get one made too! It is so well made and in 30 minutes of putting it on, and parking it on the street I’ve already had alot of compliments! I hope it will make people smile when they see it.

Lauren Bacall Dies at 89…

article-2723410-207DFF0700000578-154_634x439

Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart were 25 years apart in age (about the same age difference as my beau and I), but so in love. She knew age was just a number! In her own words Bacall described their love, “There was no way Bogie and I could be in the same room without reaching for one another, and it just wasn’t physical. Physical was very strong, but it was everything – heads, hearts, bodies, everything going at the same time.I hope she reunites with him now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Water Crises in Toledo Ohio

I have never been more thankful to live in Bowling Green, and not Toledo! The Toledo area, including Perrysburg has a major drinking water problem, as the water source is potent with harmful algal blooms which produce toxins causing people to get dizzy, go numb, get sick, etc. By this morning Bowling Green was already sold out of bottled water, and soon after Findlay. People are going to great lengths, standing in 4 hour lines to get tap water. This is a case when water can’t be boiled, because it actually concentrates the toxins and makes them worse. It seems rather apparent that there is no telling when this problem will end, or if they know how to fix it.

DIY Hand Painted Spare Tire Cover

diycover

As much as I LOVE my new Geo Tracker, I am still a girly girl coming from just owning a pink Volkswagon beetle, and I felt like my new ride was a little masculine looking. It needed some personality. So I ordered a $10 cover from ebay and used outdoor-proof paint to create a unique wheel cover. This inexpensive project made the Geo so much cuter in my opinion!
