Addie, I would never leave her in the hot car. I love her. It is too dangerous.

Your friend,

Cat, it wasn't me that mentioned about leaving her in the car. It was Dawg.

Oh I am sorry! You are correct. I went too fast for myself in the post.

Dawglover, I promise I will not do this. The dogs could die in that heat. I need for my Azia to be with me for a very long time. I love her very much.

I promise I will be a safe driver and be very responsible with DA, Azia and our car.

I was thinking of giving the car a name. My parents always called their cars a nice name and referred to them as females, like boats. Papa has a fishing vessel and she is called "Catina," for me.

Do you have ideas of a name?

Your friend,
~Cat

I always name my cars. I think you have to drive it for a while to figure out what the car's name is. But, first, you have to figure out if it is a girl car or a boy car.

Oh you are so right Taxy. Some cars turn out to be brutes when you are driving them. They are hell bent to go their own way. That would be a boy car. And other cars respond immediately to your moves. That would be a girl car.

If it turns out to be a boy car, Brutes would fit well. For a girl car, you could name her after DA.

I disagree, Archie is a boy car and he's not a brute. He is cool, suave, elegant...he's got pinstripes.

I went back and took a good long look. I can see speed and the attitude of "I will take care of you when you are driving. I will get you where you want to go safely." Hmmmm. Now I am seeing a whole different light.

I do agree with driving it around before naming your car. Most of mine have been girls, other than Haley, the Mercury Comet. Definitely a boy car.

We never did give Mom's Comet convertible a name.....

I think this one is a girl. Yes, Stela would be a good name! I shall think upon this.

Your friend,

Exactly! Archie is a Subaru and is the safest car I have driven. If we get snow this year, I get to try him out in the snow. Since he looks like he's wearing a tux...he will look like a penguin in the snow

Does he have all wheel drive? I love my all wheel drive.
