birds, peaceful


I couldn't think of a creative title for this post.

One of my budgies died while at the vet and the vet's office sent flowers. It was so kind! Unfortunately the flowers were less than fresh and the roses were clearly old and the gerber daisy was spotty brown.

Should I tell the vet or complain to the florist?


The kids are all independent now; I've gone back to work and can fit a car payment into the budget.  I commute 35 miles of suburban traffic Monday thru Friday and am thinking about trading in the minivan for a Leaf.  Anyone know whether that's a decent car for commuting?  Any other opinions about small, economical cars that would be better than a Leaf?
