The Downside Of Having A Wrapped Pet Sitting Car

It’s been a little over a year now that I’ve been driving the Pet Sitting Mobile (aka The Hoopty).  At first I was embarrassed to drive it because of the rather crazy graphics on the side of the car but over time, I seem to forget it’s even there. Continue reading
