Flowers in a car

Back when the new Volkswagen Beetle came out, they made a few advertisements about the flower vase in the car. I think they were trying to attract the throw-back hippies from the 1960’s. Maybe they were trying to instill an environmentally aware image. But then fresh flowers will last about four minutes in a hot parked car. So everyone uses silk flowers or really tacky plastic ones.

My wife has a 1995 Toyota van. It’s falling apart, but has 200,000 miles on it, so that is expected. The plastic cup holders broke some years back. Only a large cup that will wedge into the hole, will fit now, as there is no bottom on the holders. My wife also buys fresh cut flowers to take to her parents and to a nursing home. The broken cup holders are great flower holders.

And you thought VW had this idea first....HA.
