Gone to the Dogs
Of course, I am not the only transporter. A total of 433 drivers have transported dogs so far this year. In road miles, the transport tram has logged almost 155,000 miles as of August 30. We usually drive between four and eight hours round trip. Because my Subaru is so dependable, I never hesitate to commit to drive. So yes, my Subaru is definitely “for the dogs” in the most positive literal sense!

Fen Man and Fen Lady
Our license plates, FEN MAN and FEN LADY, have become well-known in our community as we are the Volunteer Stewards at Lake in the Hills Fen, a state-dedicated nature preserve. The All-Wheel Drive has been a godsend, especially in the winter as we need to drive through snow that covers what were plowed fields before they were purchased by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. This last winter one of the access tracks had snowdrifts to the top of the driver’s window, but we were able to drive through them. The excellent heater was much appreciated when we went there working on a day when it was 23 below zero wind chill!
Every Saturday and Sunday, year round, we take volunteers out on the preserve for restoration work; they are amazed at the way the Outback handles the terrain.

The storage capacity of the Forester has been helpful in hauling all of life’s necessities to college dormitories. When my daughter decided to study abroad, I was concerned about transporting her to the airport with two tubas in flight cases, a large duffel bag full of clothing, and a carry-on backpack. The Forester handled the load very comfortably. I love my Subaru.

Whom Do You Call?
You are probably thinking “Here is an old retired English teacher with way too much time on his hands.” The retired teacher part is correct, but my subject area was Industrial Arts, not English. It is just that I hold the English language in high regard, and I hate to see it continued to be misused as it is today.
Who versus whom is just the tip of the very large iceberg of misuse.

Love at First Sight
I needed a new car and happened to be having lunch right across the street from a Subaru dealership. The waiter said he had one and that many of his friends and family members did, too. He highly recommended it. What could I do? I finished eating quickly and went over there. Once in the showroom, I immediately walked over to the Forester and knew I would buy it. Within seconds I called my sister on my cell phone and told her I was buying this phenomenal car and I thought she should buy one, too. She arrived in minutes and we each took off in separate vehicles for an awesome test-drive. We both bought the Forester. It was a family affair.
