In which anonymity doesn't suit me and there's a Dragon Egg
"Don't bring me a Volkswagon," the mechanic said.
"And unless you think I need a new boat and you want to pay for it,
don't bring me an Audi, a Kia, a Hyundai, or any of those other disposable cars."
|I do not miss this truck.|
My little commuter truck, which had never been bulletproof like my prior red truck, finally sucked up a bunch of money and then died...leaving me without a bunch of money and without a commuter vehicle.
CUE: gnashing of teeth, cursing of the house of Ford, and many tears of frustration as I realize that my tiny budget would cover a cheap POS car, and that was about all.
I test-drove all kinds of crummy vehicles. I scrounged around for more money. I borrowed some money from Santa Jim.
And finally, we found:
A 2002 white CRV. It has a bunch of miles, but it has AWD and it isn't a disposable car and the mechanic gave it a thumbs up.
HOWEVER, I live in the land of little SUVs, now driving a little SUV just like all the others. I was afraid to park at Costco, for fear that I'd never figure out which egg was mine. They all look the same!
Then a friend on Facebook suggested that a little decorating might be in order...
|The horse trailer was gifted with purple flame decals many years ago by Maddie and Jill|
and it just so happens that this friend makes auto decals. How convenient!
|Santa Jim has the attention-to-detail that I lack, important when applying decals without bubbles underneath|
We added DRAGONS!
|Fox likes to be in pictures, even in pictures of cars (he doesn't much like cars, just pictures)|
Amber sent a few "bonus" decals as well:
|Not gonna lose THIS EGG in the parking lot!|
|reflection make it difficult to see this nice purple horse-head,|
but it looks awesome IRL
There are plenty of eggs in the Swamp, but there's only one Dragon Egg!
