New Car

I never thought I’d be purchasing a car again (I haven’t had one for a couple of years), but Tom’s truck is dying and we need to travel about the country this summer. Flying didn’t appeal to us and I received a small inheritance from my recently deceased grandmother’s estate, so I decided to get a small used car with it. It is a 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage with 69,000 miles on it. I purchased it from a car rental company going out of business.

I still plan to take the bus, walk, and bike as much as I can. I really would have like to have something with which I could use biodiesel, but I couldn’t find one. Someday we won’t have a choice…. Until then, I will use a vehicle when I have to and try not to have one that has a lien on it.

Thanks, Grandma! I miss you….
