I'm On A Roll...

Since yesterday's post, I thought I may as well open up a bit more.

Once upon a time, a middle-age bride ( a newlywed) was given a car for her birthday.
It was flattering.
The last time someone purchased a car for her, it was a 1968 Corvair that her father bought for her when she was just 16!

The birthday car that was very reminiscent of a youth that seemed a hundred years ago.
It was an unnecessary pleasure... a luxury.

The car had one night with a raccoon and now, four years later,
she wonders what the car is like now.
She still has the title, pays the insurance and the property taxes--
but has no car to drive with the top down on warm summer (or fall) days.

Is this what life is all about? Remembering things that once were?

I have a graffitti on the refrigerator that sums it up this way:
Never replace old dreams with regrets.

I intend on retrieving my car.

Get that car. And remember things as they once were because it helps bring us back to who we really are.

Beautiful car (sigh!). I appreciate your list of 7 things. Refreshing.

The car is great! My dad had a TR7, but he ended up buying two, one to drive and one for parts, since the damned thing broke down a zillion times. But it was worth it!
