Slammed

I don't bounce back like I used to. This cold hit me ten days ago and today is the first day I've felt like doing anything. Carole has it too, along with a couple of friends and it's a real beast. Something like regular blogging should resume here in a day or two. Today, though, I go pick up my new car, a Honda Civic EXL. We have usually bought cars that were a couple of years old, letting someone else take the depreciation hit, but this time I decided I wanted to watch all those dollars fly out the window myself. Come January, the heated seats are not going to seem like a luxury at all. The morons at Dealmaker Honda in Potsdam ordered the wrong model.

  1. Sorry you’re feeling bad. Sorry about your Honda too. I’m convinced they are the best cars on the road, so I hope you get yours soon.
