International Auto Show

"Americans are broad-minded people. They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater, and even a newspaperman, but if a man doesn't drive, there is something wrong with him. " ~Art Buchwald

Hubby and I are off today to the International Auto Show down in NYC. We've gone before - it's usually pretty cool, an entire display of all the latest and greatest (& upcoming) innovations in the world of cars. Maybe I'll get some good inspiration for the next vehicle my hero or heroine will be driving!

Even more cool, for me: for the first time since we moved to our new house (2 years ago...) we're taking the train into the city instead of driving down. It's a little bit longer, but we won't have to deal with traffic, or tolls, or gas prices, or parking. The train station is less than 2 miles from our doorstep, so you would think we would have actually taken advantage of this before. But no. I'm excited: this means I get to read a book on the way!

I'll post some pictures here tomorrow...see you then!

Have a great time! And to get to read a book on the train- bliss. Actually, the one I'm reviewing now is pretty good and I have to sit through a 2 1/2 hour Tae Kwon Do belt test this morning where my child will only be "on" for about 15 minutes, so I guess I'll be doing the same! I'm jealous that your mom posts...mine can't figure out how to "work" the internet. Sigh.

Have fun. That's what I love about taking the subway to work, I got an hour of reading time.
