Van Again

Meet “Sylvia.”

That’s what the kids named our new silver Honda Odyssey since “Phyllis” our old green Honda Odyssey finally croaked last week after giving us 249,867 good miles.

Yep, we’re dorky van people.

In the process of looking for a new car, we checked out sporty SUVs, sleek sedans, and hip hybrids with big dreams about being cool this time. But in the end a van fits our needs and budget, dang it.

Madi calls it “The Mothership” because she says its funky body style looks space age and it is the mode of transport for the alien life form known as her mother.
