New Car......

Today I said goodbye to my trustee old Ford Contour, we spent hours and hours together, over 90,000 miles in total.

We closed on a 2008 Honda Accord EX-L V6. I'm looking forward to going to work now Monday, I'm sure the novelty will soon wear off. It comes with a free subscription to XM Satellite Radio offering over 60 channels of advertisement free radio. Generally I'm quite against having to pay a monthly fee for this type of stuff, especially radio. I'm curious to see how my 3 month free trial turns out, will I buckle and become a monthly fee slave or will I remain true? I'll keep you posted. I was listening to a dedicated bluegrass channel earlier which was good, music which is normally not available around here on normal FM radio.

I am feeling two emotions very strongly at exactly the same moment right now:

1. I'm so sad to see the blue Ford go...It seems very weird to me that you will no longer be driving it.

2. I'm insanely jealous of your new car. I love, love, love the Honda Accords and Civics. One of those will be our next vehicle, we hope. :)

Congratulations on the new car! (And thank you for thinking of us right now...we're holding strong. Either way, everything is going to be just fine. I'm sure of it.) Hopefully we'll see you soon. Once this is all over, we should do dinner. I miss you all terribly, truly.

Well wear Paul - it looks like a lovely car. Just a shame it's not a diesel :)

Hope you are all keeping well.

Nice set of wheels - keep her between the ditches, as they say.
