It Is Sooo Ugly But it Rides Well

It is so ugly but my old one bit the dust. Wal*Mart didn't have any like my old one so I had to buy one that looks like a big walking shoe with a handle. It is a pretty color but thats all I can say for it. Its lavender and white. It's mouth is rounded not flat like my old one so it doesn't seem to pick up as well. I hate it but it does ride well. In fact it rode eight miles to the next town over. I made four turns and stopped at two stop signs and went through one red light. Ha I have no idea if I stopped there or not. I got out of the truck and walked to the back to do my work and there it was sitting on the bumper. I got a chuckle out of that and I'm sure several people along the way did too. As I wielded the car wash wand with one hand I handed it to John with the other. He looked puzzled and said what is that? Well John if you ever cleaned your own vehicles you would know it is a hand held vaccum.

I haven't had one of those in a long time.. I've always called them Dirt Devil. I guess that was originally the brand name? They are convenient to have around!

At first I could not figure out what you where talking about. That is funny I am surprised it did not fall off the bumper. I have an old trusty one I got at the hardware store and I love it.
