We sold the ol’ girl 1997 Honda Odyssey.  It was my mother-in-law’s car, but it was definitely time to trade her in.

We went to CarMax on Saturday, and we tested out a Navy blue Dodge that really didn’t have much extras at all, and when my husband found out there was NO cruise control — omg, you could here a pin drop!  “NO CRUISE CONTROL?”  Let me also tell you that the Honda was my car.  Okay, ya got that!  We were replacing MY car.  Hmmm, Now we need cruise control.  This is so we can take this vehicle on vacation, which is the last week of July.  Not sure where we’re going, but it’s leaning towards Busch Gardens in Virginia.  (I’ll let ya know later). 

Well, then we test drove a Champagne 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT.  Well, this baby has more gadgets then Carter’s has pills.  It tells you the degrees outside, which direction you’re going, automatic sliding doors on BOTH sides, and I could go on forever, and why are these things important you say?  Well, of course for hauling equipment when they have gigs!  “Oh gee, silly me, and I thought it was my car!  My mistake”.  “But baby it is your car, to go to the store and pick up his groceries, his beer, and his cigarettes!  Yep, my car!  Isn’t it wonderful!  What a truly wonderful husband I have!  ~hehe~.  

Yes, I do have a truly wonderful husband.  I have power seats, great air conditioning, a CD player, AND check out this halo lighting!  Truly awesome!  I feel like I’m on a plane.  Well, there’s so much more, but it’s getting late!  You want one more peak you say?!  SURE!  NO PROB!  To the left is my key!  Weird huh?  So that’s it!  Wanna go for a ride???  Weeeeeeeeeee

Thanks for Subscribing to emails. Hope you stop by to comment, too.
