There’s never really a good time to buy a new car, but today we had to bite the bullet and just do it. We were thankful that Daddy Darling’s car actually made it to the dealership to be traded in. I think Daddy D is pleased with his new black VW Jetta GLI. It’s a pretty car that’s never been wrecked, has electric windows that actually work, has a transmission that knows when to change gears, and a radiator that doesn’t overheat. In addition, the brakes actually work and the rear end doesn’t sound like it’s going to fall out from under the car every time it hits a bump. I do kind of miss that familiar groaning sound that we so frequently heard every time that the steering wheel was turned, but I am sure I will get over it. Yes, I think it was time to buy a new car. (Sure going to miss paying $60.00 to fill up the tank though.)
Although Desheng Darling requested an orange car, she seems to be pleased with our choice.
