Katie's "New" Car
(Late post today as no internet access most of the day)
Well...there it is, her new wheels, our new debt.
(Be careful about telling your young children, "If you study hard and get a scholarship to college, we'll buy you a car to get you there."
It might come true.
Yesterday's car shopping experience in Metropolis was not as bad as I had expected. We barely entered the urban zone so traffic was not an issue, and the couple who sold us the car were about as pleasant as folks can be.
Except for spending money...it was not that bad a day.
It's a 2002 Dodge Neon, nice and clean, with low mileage. I know Neons are safe cars as my wife managed to roll our Neon back in 1997. She walked away with seatbelt marks on her shoulder. (It's a post somewhere in the archives)
Now...Emma is car shopping.
Postscript: Tomorrow's post is a bizarre picture of my dog Flounder that needs a caption...or maybe it just need to be deleted. Be ready...
