Our New Company Name

As many of you know, roommate Natasha moved into her own place at the end of April.

We are both doing great, making spaces our own and enjoying the freedom to leave dirty dishes in the sink if deemed necessary.

Before, during and after the move, my SUV has been a vessel for hauling the many things – boxes, furniture, a bicycle, camping essentials, lawn mowers, odds and ends, and an occasional item from the lumber/hardware store. We call ourselves “Two Old Women and an SUV,” a take on Two Men and a Truck.

Last week, I helped Natasha pick up and transport two large pieces of lattice – one a flexible plastic and the other made from non-bendable wood. The flexible piece fit inside the SUV, the wooden piece did not. At the time we were trying to load these pieces, an elderly gentleman came out to his vehicle, parked next to us. He kindly offered to help us and eventually suggested strapping the wooden piece to the roof rails on top of my vehicle. We had bungee cords and an extra hand to get the lattice up, centered and secured, ensuring I didn’t damage the antenna.

It worked and with a slow drive through town, the wood lattice made it to its final destination. At that point, Natasha suggested we change our company name.

“We should call ourselves Two Old Women, an SUV, and an Elderly Guy in the Parking Lot.”

That’s a long name.

Do you think it would fit on the side of my vehicle?”

  1. As I’ve ‘matured,’ I’ve found I don’t much care for the word ‘elderly’ so I’d vote to lose that. 🙂 My husband will use the word to describe someone, and I always ask ‘you mean our age or older.’ LOL Yes, it’s too long for a sign, but it’s descriptive so I understood the issue. One of you should trade for a truck and then it would be ‘two mature women and a truck.’ By the way, I would prefer to drive my truck over our SUV. Now, we need to know what she did with her lattice work. 🙂

    Judy, how about “Two Mature Women, an SUV, and Hot Guy in the Parking Lot,” because we’d probably prefer that any given day.” 😀

    Natasha is using the lattice for part of her backyard fencing. You’d have to see it to understand, but it will do its job.

    How about: Tw Fi Wo w At? That would make people stop and question. And it stands for? Two Fine Women With Attitude! Like fine wine we get better with age.

      I like that Pam! I’d much rather have an attitude than be old. I’ll suggest that one next time we find ourselves hauling or having a glass of adult refreshment. 😉

    Elderly guys have been helping good looking women forever. The name might be a little long, but the sentiment is there.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish with a little rope and some bungee cords!! Tomorrow is my day for a trip to the lumber yard in a Prius C. I have rope and bungees and a credit card… I think I can handle it!

    • bikerchick57 says:

      You can do it! Bungee cords are like duct tape…the handyman’s or woman’s tool. If not, look for the guy in the parking lot to help. 😏🙂

    Rather ingenious, Man in Parking Lot!
    Never hurts to wear shorts to the hardware store, I’m just sayin.
    I do think you could fit the business name on the side of your vehicle, but I think it’d be so small, only young people could read it 😉

      Ha! You’re right about the small print. I would need 2 or 3 SUV’s so I could read the long company name.
