New Car Smell

Well, we did it. Yes, we did.

The old station wagon had over 100,000 miles on it, and had some scrapes and dings. The upholstery was starting to fray, and there were some odd sounds coming from under the hood. It was back in the shop for yet another $1000+ repair. So... we took the plunge.

We bought a new car. It's a Ford Fusion Hybrid, so we can feel virtuous while self-indulgent - we are helping an American industry and reducing emissions, all the while saving money on gas.

Plus, it's got cool toys.

Cool toys?

That's called cheating! We didn't have no fancy gps gizmos when I was a kid...

Cool toys are always fun! I wanted to stop by and say hello, and to thank you for your kind words. I noticed how you responded to BB as well. I think we see it from the "mom" side, which is always different from the "kid" side!
