Egrets Reading

Standard Transmission Cars

Today, I introduced Kirk to the art of driving a stick shift. His car, which was stolen about a month ago, was recently recovered by the police, but it had been stripped so badly that it was essentially junk. We have a 1991 Toyota Tercel he can drive until he can replace his car, but it’s a standard transmission.

So, we spent a few hours in the parking lot at the Los Angeles Arboretum.

the wail
of a peacock --
shifting gears

(The Arboretum is notorious for its peacock population, half of which live in the neighboring streets of Arcadia)
