In Celebration of Milestone Birthdays

Because today is my mother's 70th birthday (Happy Birthday, Mom), I began thinking about milestone birthdays of my own. I need to figure out which activity I find more appealing: lunching at a Tuscan villa, or driving a classic yellow Mustang convertible.












I'm just trying to weigh the options for my 50th birthday. Before I know it, seven years will pass and POOF! I'll panic at the last minute and buy myself something practical, like a a nice pair of flats, or something anticlimactic, like a house plant, to celebrate. I don't want that to happen. These things take careful planning.

The Mustang is beautiful and you deserve one!

However, I must say that it is not quite as lovely as the 1967 Pontiac Firebird, which in my opinion is the single most beautiful automobile of all time.

I bet you gaze wistfully at that picture and hear the BLUM, BLUM, BLUM of all those engines, don't you?

But if you move up to the '68 model, you can get a 350. (That's just a little car talk I picked up along the way.)

As for me I want an Aptera for my 50th: http://aptera.com/ It's going to hit the roads next year...

Oh, looks comfy! Where are you gonna put the groceries, let alone the kids...or is this a MOV (Manoj Only Vehicle). What about the acoustics? It'll be quiet, but is there room for a good sound system, or will it be all a capella all o' the time?

MOV! I like it. And you know it's all a cappella all the time - at least in my head. You know, it's all just voices in there - no instruments...
