SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Son Dustin and his ladyfriend Camelia flew into San Francisco Thursday and are now diving into the SUV market in Sacramento to find a suitable vehicle for Camelia's very successful canvas business in Puerto Vallarta.
She has been bombing around in a VW bug for the past few years as she built the boat-based business up and now needs a new set of wheels.
Car shopping in 2007 - at least in 'for-sale-by-owner' category - has been made soooo much easier by Craig's List, the online service that has almost singlehandedly destroyed the classified advertising sections at many newspapers.
I mean, it's free for God's sakes and if you use the email function to contact owners, you don't even us up cell phone minutes.
I suppose it's a sign that Camelia and Dustin are referred to around the house as 'the kids.'
I wonder how the Admiral and I are referred to when we visit them in Mexico?
Hmmm.... Best not to dwell on that.
