While I like to keep the blog non-commercial (except for coffee…), I have to report on our latest consumer moment.  We got a new car.  We had a 17 year old car and an 18 year old car and we were feeling the need for more reliable transportation.  In our long lives together we had only ever gotten one new car and that was in 1993…all the others have been used, which we believe is the way to go.  But, just this one time, my “exit vehicle” was to be brand new.  We had to trade in the old car and it turns out they REALLY wanted it, so it was a quick goodbye

and into the “loaner”while we awaited the new car…

a 2008 Forester that was fun to drive…

and then, FINALLY, the car arrived and we went to pick it up from the irrepressible Billy

Now this car has millions of drink holders and plugs for things (things I don’t own…) and bluetooth (there’s a learning curve…) and a special back-up camera so you don’t squish a toddler or a pet…

low mileage (it had 4 miles when we drove away)…

AND, it has a (totally clean) motor (phew!)…

and, it really is so sweet…

and so far the old guy and the new kid are doing fine…
