Vespa vs. Laundry

So we were all set to fix the Vespa, so I could get 50 mpg instead of 20. Isn't she pretty?















She doesn't need much - new battery, oil change, new tires.

But guess what? See the empty space in my garage?




















Yeah, there should be a clothes washer there. Stupid thing decided it liked being full of water and refused to spin or drain.

So tomorrow I get a new (used) washer. And the poor Vespa has to sit unused for a while longer.

Oh what a bummer about the washer. I'm jealous you have a vespa

Hey Kat -
Don't be jealous, get one! They're way cheaper than a car, get better mileage, are cheaper to fix, super-easy to learn to ride. Only thing you have to watch out for is 4-wheel-drivers that have a tendency to not see you...
