Tuesday I said fond and well deserved farewell to my 1994 Geo Metro. The Geo started out as a commuter car ,a freeway warrior that managed to get 44mpg day in and day out. A second life as a household driver was had for a couple of years then the Geo went to College with our daughter. The Geo must have enjoyed the college art scene because in it’s final years it was an Art Car,dashing around town with the entire island from “Lost” on the hood complete with 50/50 plane and Polar Bears. Then the Pirate/Punisher roof took the spotlight. In the last in-car-nation the Geo sported John Deere green with a topping of white”droppings”,Invader Zim’s Irken armada rode on the hood and the roof was still in Pirate mode.
Since the little 3cyl was not going to pass the smog inspection this time around (visible tailpipe smoke)and the radio had been stolen 3 times in 15 years ,the trim had rotted off and the windows whistled I decided to sell the Geo to the State of Calif. recycling program. They paid me far more than it was worth and the Geo will be crushed with dignity to be turned into more useful objects in the future!
Adios Geo , it’s been swell!

Note : Last night was the June Full Moon and it was CLEAR here!! Hooray! Here is a quick photo of the Full Strawberry Moon also known as the Rose moon. There was a Red moon eclipse last night that looked great on film but was not visible from North America. The Strawberry Moon is for the peak of wild Strawberries ripening and though they are not wild the ones from the local farmers market have been delicious!
