Let the Good Times Roll!





Look what we did! I am one happy woman! Walt is strutting around like a male peacock!

It is kind of one of those "one the way to the store" stories. Walt went to the Toyota store for a state inspection and a oil change. He saw this "beauty" parked in a spot that pricked his curiosity. When he asked about it, he was told it belonged to the shop manager's dad. He's 80, and the kids wanted him to give up the car. Walt wanted to buy it on the spot, but when he called I was in the garden and didn't answer the phone. Needless to say, when he got home, I told him to buy it. That was yesterday. We picked it up today.

I've been in love with T-Birds since high school. Walt's been lusting after a sports car for a while now. This is perfect! A 2004 model, it had 20,165 miles on the odometer when we took possession.

Shouldn't there be a photo with the speedo showing 100 MPH, the chick on the right crying FASTER and a Toyota or two left in the dust behind?

This is a cause for very serious concern. Policemen will suspect nefarious business, when it rains you will get wet, when birds swoop low you will have to duck, and when you stop at lights people will snoop to be sure that you have all your clothes on.

Funny, we were just talking about this the other day. You don't need me to buy you one after all! Little did we know.

Enjoy it.
