Sexism

My smart car is a 2013

You would think that car builders would know that women drive cars too. So why don’t I have a mirror in the visor as the passenger side does? A simple thing, is it the same in your car? I just find it annoying and can’t find one to add. It’s the same in my RV, no mirror. I like to check my face before I get out of my car, don’t you?

Oh well, nothing to go on and on about, but really?

I’m told the White House Christmas tree has been cut in New Mexico and is on it’s way to DC with stops on the way and is stopping in Truth or Consequences today, I would have gone to see it this afternoon but I was in town this morning and it’s too far to go twice in one day. I wonder how it will be decorated this year. And really it’s just a big tree at this point.

While in town I did several errands and bought a light weight camp chair because now is a good time to go down to the lake and sketch trees, the weather is perfect to scout around but I get tired and there isn’t a place to stop and rest, now I can have a seat, it’s a simple thing made in China (of course) easy to put together. Too bad I gave away my backpack would have been handy. Tomorrow Charley and I’ll go to the lake and I ‘ll take a sketch book and watercolor pencils and enjoy the day. Expected temperature will be 65, so happy I’m here!

We have a pot luck dinner here for Thanksgiving, I’m thinking to take Ron Ponche because I’m not a great cook My sister-in-law made this for the holidays and if you got a bottle of her ron ponche it was much appreciated. I had her recipe for a while, it is made cooking the eggs and cream I remember and delicious! But here I’ll just buy a bottle of Rum and add to Rice’s Egg Nog which is pretty good, I like it. Will be better with spirits (Carta Vieja?)

I haven’t taken photos of our home lately and the light was nice so I took a few tonight,love my tiny space!

Charley is a little too big for his bed,his long legs are usually dangling out over the edge.

  1. My 2014 gmc terrain has mirrors on both sides. I used mine maybe 2 times. The 2013 smart for 2 had one on the passenger side only like yours. This never bothered me as s I never check to see how I look after I comb my hair and wash my face. My mother-in-law told me a little poem years ago that I liked.

    “My face I don’t mind d it, because I’m behind it. It’s the people in front that I jar!’

    Would carrying a small mirror in the car help? Sexism is everywhere, ignore it. You’re just as good as anyone else.

    If Charley’s legs get any longer, other dogs can run under him! 😊
