Hiya BetterMost friends.





Clear blue skies are the order of the day here in my area.  Originally we were predicted to get some snow, but I guess that was wrong.  Now there are predictions for snow next weekend.  Of course, that's when family and friends have scheduled birthday celebrations.  LOL

Quiet day scheduled here today, just laundry to be done.  Other than that, it should be a relaxing day.

The only used car I have owned was my first one which my parents gave me in lieu of a 21st birthday party. It was a 1958 car which i was given in 1965 but literally owned by a little old lady. I did buy a 2nd hand Kombi camper in London in 1974 but ended up replacing the engine in Germany then taking it back to London to sell.

I bought my Ford Fiesta Hatchback https://www.carsguide.com.au/ford/fiesta/price/2009/zetec?id=BlDM3MjS    when I moved to NZ in January 2010 so almost 9 years and it is yet to pass 70,000 km (43,500miles) I have driven it from top to bottom of NZ twice but it sits in the carport for days on end as I prefer to catch the bus unless going to the supermarket or hiking. On Tuesday I drove over 200km, nearly half on gravel roads with 3 women passengers and they enjoyed the day.  It is officially a 5 seater but I have only put 5 in for a short distance in an emergency. No dents yet. Very fuel efficient which is important here as petrol is over $2 per litre (NZ$7.60 per gallon or US$5.20)

I would like to replace it with an electric vehicle. they are becoming quite popular but still expensive and not good for touring yet.

I've owned two new cars, three inherited used cars, and two purchased used cars, including the car I drive now. I bought it when it was three years old.

It's still working pretty well seven years later. The body doesn't look great (multiple fender-benders, like the time the plastic garage cans attacked the side of my car and the time a telephone pole ran into the bumper. But functionally, it's fine, and still has low miles (90,000) for its age (10 years). I believe that's less than Chrissi said she drives in a year! In Europe, where gas is probably still kind of expensive.

It's a Mazda 3, which is semi-sporty for an ordinary compact car. But it dents more easily than, say, SUVs.

My third car, and the only new one I've ever owned, was a Chevy, and it never gave us a bit of trouble. I should never have gotten rid of that car, but at the time I was young and stupid and wanted something more sporty.

I'm past the "young and stupid" age, and I think I've safely passed or suppressed the "midlife crisis" feelings, so I won't be getting anything "sporty".  I do want a model that is a little bigger than the one I have now.  I feel like anyone who sits in the back seat is a little cramped.

I've also decided that I will give myself a present for my birthday, but not until June.  I'm going to go buy a new car.   My current car is 15 years old, and starting to show her age.  It's time for an upgrade.   I've not decided what one to get, but I'm leaning towards a Chevy.  My current car is a Chevy, and she's lasted this long, and has had no major problems.

Hiya BetterMost friends.




Happy weekend everyone!   Hope that you are are relaxing and having a good day.

Went out for some groceries today, that I'll use on Tuesday.  At my job instead of giving you something for your birthday, the birthday person brings in something.  Usually it's breakfast,  but this year I decided to do something different, and bring in lunch.

I went out today and got a bunch of sandwich rolls, mayo, mustard, oil, vinegar, and large bags of chips.  On Tuesday morning before I go to work, I'll stop at the store and get fresh lettuce and tomato, and a large selection of fresh cold cuts, and everyone can make sandwiches for lunch.

I've also decided that I will give myself a present for my birthday, but not until June.  I'm going to go buy a new car.   My current car is 15 years old, and starting to show her age.  It's time for an upgrade.   I've not decided what one to get, but I'm leaning towards a Chevy.  My current car is a Chevy, and she's lasted this long, and has had no major problems.  Still has original  transmission and engine, the only replacements have been basic maintenance,  brakes, shocks, filters, stuff like that.  The radiator was replaced once.

I do like how the 2019 Chevy Trailblazer looks, but I'd have to drive one to see how she handles.   This is the model and color I would want.

And there's a truck just like Ennis' to its left! Smiley

Grin That's exactly why I bought that truck right away when I found it.  Grin


Still gives us a kick, doesn't it. Even after all these years. Smiley

The time of our lives goes by so quickly, doesn't it? I've had that truck for at least ten years, now, but I bought it when I did because it resembles Ennis' pickup.
