I acutally feel tall for the first time in my life. 5 foot 5 inches.

I love my Eddie Bauer Explorer. I am addicted to those heated seats.

I think I am going to move up to an Expedition next go round - probably in the spring. I do want a third seat though.

i could NEVER drive an suv. way to big for me. i love my volvo! it's the perfect size for me. my dh calls it the "hollvo"! (my name is holly for those of you who don't know) BUT, it does not alot of room. very safe, but a very tiny trunk. i'd love to have the xc-90, which is the volvo suv, but i don't think i could drive it. those of you that drive the big suv's good for you. i do have to confess that i drove a trash truck for the city on my 1st summer after high school! i can drive that, but not an suv. go figure!!

I wish I could drive an SUV, but I find myself straining to see over the front. I'm 5 foot and 3/4 of an inch, and in my first car (a Honda Civic), I had to have a cushion to see over the front end of the car. I have a Toyota Matrix now (just got it last December), and I LOVE that car!! It is my favorite!

This might make you laugh and y'all don't know how prissy I am but I am the keep my nails done all the time type but am not afraid to get dirty.

Anyway, my old boyfriend was super big into deer hunting, dog field trials, etc and I would go with him. I drive through the woods in his big ol' souped up 4 X 4 with the mud tires on it and get out to pick up hunting dogs and put them in the box with their leashes draped over my neck wearing my coveralls........but I did have them monogrammed in hot pink....

I don't know what tickled the good ol' boys more, me callin' dogs or the monogrammed coveralls.

It was a lot of fun but you may not appreciate that redneck humor.

That's awesome! I "speak redneck", so I get it! One night, I had to chaperone a dance at school, and one of my girls I coached had her boyfriend come pick her up. She went out to the truck to get in, and he said, "No, we've got to go back up and see Brooke." She asked why, and he said, "I've got a new huntin' dog, I've got to show her!" I have to say, no monogrammed coveralls here, but I like the idea!!

I didn't have him from hello....I knew I had him when he named one of the pick of the litters - SusieQ. She turned out to be the winningest dog he ever had. We broke up....I married someone else and then got divorced. She died right before we dated again. But we aren't together now. We still talk every now and then but after 8 years of looking - either it is or isn't and seems to be it ain't.

WOW - that was a tangent.

redneck woman here too.


Can't drive a Volvo, my legs are to short so I eat steering wheel but I can drive my truck, the butt part of the seat lifts up so I can see over the steering wheel.
Now if that isn't tag worthy I don't know what is.....

I'm a Ford Expedition girl! I LOVE all the room! I am not a big fan of driving it though. My husband made the mistake of buying me a really pretty zippy car before I got pregnant with DS. Then when I got pregnant with DS we traded it in for Bessie (our affectionate name for the Expedition). Bessie does have the DVD player in it, which is fantastic for traveling the great state of Texas. However, I have learned that apparently Bessie does not have the zippy get-up-and-go that my previous car had. I got my mothers driving skills- she used to race Corvettes.

Only in the Creative Community can a thread go from a hug fest to comparing redneck cars. You guys crack me up.

We are a jack of all trades!!!

BAMB~ Can't drive a Volvo, my legs are to short so I eat steering wheel but I can drive my truck, the butt part of the seat lifts up so I can see over the steering wheel.
Now if that isn't tag worthy I don't know what is.....My seats do that too!!! DH eats the steering wheel column when he gets in and bangs his knees into the dash! I also can move my brake and gas paddle up closer to me!!!


Susie~ I so understand the prissy side to redneck! I was prissy when I was in high school..but would go out afterschool and work on cars w/ the football boys after practice.. why? He was the cutest thing ever! He and I should have been...but he thought he was better than me... Now, I'm happily married,5 kids and he still calls my daddy to check and see how we are doin'.. Daddy says he gets a little upset to find out we are still together! Hey, it could have been...but he made a choice.. the wrong choice! I can't thank him enough!

Oh, you have one of those happy cars. They are so cute. Just like VW bugs. They make you smile when you see them.

It is my happy car, even more so at the gas pump with prices as they are! I can't imagine driving a big SUV. We're still right at $3 a gallon
