I go pick up my Miata today
I did get out yesterday to do a little exploring around my area of Tucson. I found a Starbucks so had my first mocha since Sunday and I ordered a big venti one. There is a Walmart near the Starbucks so I made some purchases, then drove across the street to Crackerbarrel for another late lunch (a lunner) then drove a different route through town off the freeway.
I found the Foothills Mall and a very large, two-story Barnes & Noble Bookstore. They told me it is the tenth largest bookstore in the US and it is large. But they didn't have any books on the Miata! I did order two of them from Amazon.com on Monday and since they were being shipped to Arizona (cousin J's home) there was no sales tax. Saving the tax, I paid extra for two day delivery so they should arrive today. I don't get the immediate use of a new book when I buy from Amazon but they sure have access to almost any title you might want.
The weather here has cooled with the arrival of a large storm from the north Pacific to California. Clouds at least have extended this far east and yesterday the high temp was only 61 with sunshine, which felt pretty good to me. Overnight it got down to 39 and today is only to go up to the low 60s with a 20% chance of rain. It sounds like there is a higher chance of rain over the weekend. What a time to buy a convertible car, eh (that's for my Canadian friends!)

What if something is wrong with it?
I love the color of it! If you plan on keeping it up here, I guess you only plan on driving it in August & Sept, huh? Does Huggy have her own seat?
The car is nice to drive. Now for some warm weather so I can take the top off!
I've been to that very same Barnes & Noble and Foothills Mall. Sure is a small world. I miss AZ. :(
