Toyota Prius

I cannot easily relay to you how much fun that Jan and I have had with Jackie and Butch. They are wonderful caring and sharing people. We just had the laugh attack of all time with them. They rented a Toyota Prius which they drove from the airport at San Diego to Yuma. The Prius is a “hybrid” and not exactly a conventional automobile. We were out for a test drive and were stuck by the curb for about an hour trying to figure out how to make it run. The rental company had provided it without a book and that was our loss. We had taken it out for a test run and shut it off by the curb and could not figure out how to make it start again. We spent about and hour of laughter at this situation and finally called the rental company for assistance. Foot on brake. Key in. Push start. That was all it took, but they had to be in the right sequence. It was a little frustrating, but we had a ton of fun with it. The owners of the house where we were marooned seemed to suspect that there should be a small tube to blow into to make things work, however we having the time of our lives and it was without any alcohol. We have always found laughter and a good time with Jackie and Butch.
