It was a very sad day last Saturday when we bid farewell to our beloved red Taurus wagon.
It was time, she had served us well, but we will miss her dearly.
She took us to and from Florida thirteen times.
She made every trip to and from Knox and Wesleyan except for the very first one when we had to rent a cargo van to move Courtney.
She has been packed to the hilt with college stuff, a wedding dress, toys, luggage, sand, and even kids.
There was a seat in the way back facing backwards that we used at times.
We knew it was time when we were no longer able to run the air conditioning and had to drive around in 100 degree weather just like the old days.
We knew it was time when she started nickle and diming us with problems.
When we traded her in last Saturday we figured we would have to pay someone to take her, but the dealer gave us $800.00 for her which is really a great deal for us.
I figure he saw some of the beauty in her that we had seen.
So good bye dear friend, we will never forget you.
We replaced her with a 2005 Buick Rendezvous.
This is the vehicle that I drive to and from school.
So far, I like this "new" vehicle just fine and I think she will serve us well, too.
John also recently replaced his Kia with this new signal red Kia.
It is a great little commuter car and I think it will serve him well, too.
Exciting times for us with two new vehicles, but it all feels right.
We also bought a new TV.
We are done spending for awhile now!
