Hi Scrappysue,

Nice of you to address the real issues through Wordless Wednesday.
Fuel costs are crazy over here too.

Sue, please come and convince the Football Fanatic that it takes 63 days to starve a child. She thinks you must be mixed up, and it's probably more like 63 minutes.....

i'm thinking FF is possibly old enough to cook her OWN dinner too???

Hi ScrappySue...

What is the price of fuel in New Zealand? We're at just over $4 per gallon here in the Atlanta GA area. Pitiful...

Feel free to visit my blog (www.georgiarectors.blogspot.com) when you feel like web surfing. I'd love to hear how to came to visit beautiful Dahlonega GA.

Is that a Vespa? How cool.

I have one too - which means I'm cool too!

Though of course I can hardly strap Peaches on the back yet.

scrappysue said...

sass - it's actually a VMOTO - designed on purpose i'm sure to look exactly like a vespa but at a third of the cost! but don't worry, we're still cool!!! ours is only a one-seater. takes away any temptation to take anyone for a spin!

MamaGeek said...

You are BRILLIANT and totally onto something!

Susan said...

You guys have the right idea!

Janette said...

GREAT idea. Our gas prices are even higher then the states. I keep telling hubby I need a Harley! I need to work on him some more! =)

Trish said...

If I could strap three kids on to a scooter I'd get one. We are in the process of buying a new vehicle and I'm torn between having more room to allow for carpooling or a smaller car to allow for better fuel economy.

scrappysue said...

hey trish, susan and janette!
an american gallon is equivalent to around 3 1/2 of our litres and we're paying NZ$2.13 a litre right now. it went up 12 cents in one week 2 weeks ago! it's gone up 75 cents in the last 18 months. we have a 7-seater (regular car not a SUV) and a 1.3 nana car. it now costs to fill the nana car, what it used to cost to fill the 7-seater. sooooooooooo frustrating...
