MY NEW TOY

Well I decided I needed this? Actually before hubby died we were talking about it, so decided I should go ahead and get.

As you all know, dau#1 is handicapped, and had so much trouble getting into the van. She has absolutely no prob getting into this!

Ya think the red is me?? Hubby always said we shouldn't have a red vehicle-'Stats say they have the most accidents.' Owell what will be will be!

It had 9miles on the odometer when I picked up, I bet that won't last for long!

Hey and I can get it into the driveway!

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

That's what my husband told me also, so when he went out alone, looking for a car for me to drive to and from work, what did he come home with, a Red Sprint, stick shift. Well I learned all over again, how to drive a stick and I drove it to and from work and all around from 1988 until 2000. Never had to have brakes or tires put on it. We even made one trip to Fl in it one year. Wasn't the most comfortable, but sure saved on the gasoline. I only had about a seven mile drive one way to work. Everyone said my car was small enough it just jumped out of the way of accidents. LOL

Nice looking car you have. If something happened to my husband, I doubt I could afford a new car or even a used one. We have a 2003 Toyota. Not many miles on it. And we don't drive it very far, so it should last a long time.

Sweet wheels, Mommanator! That reminds me of something I want to try. I heard a tip somewhere about photographing cars. They suggested wetting the street before taking the shot. The black asphalt there looks great--better than most driveways probably.

Oh, and about the profile pic... I love the hat!

Grace and peace.

When are you bringing it to
Maryland for me to try it out??
Also-you talk about me having word verification on and wanting me to take it off-what about you???

Oh that's a cute car. Like the snazzy red.

I've driven red cars for the better part of the last 20 years. Accidents happen when someone (you or the other guy, or both) is not careful. And I haven't gotten a ticket in over 19 years - red cars are also supposed to draw the most tickets. Drive carefully, and no accidents or tickets. Enjoy the new car! My next car will have to be big enough for hauling a pair of wild dogs.
