Zoe bought a car yesterday.

She hasn’t seen it yet.

That’s what happens when Daddy learns where she keeps her piles of cash.

No….I’m kidding…she knew about the procedure.

She bought a little old Sentra with low mileage.

It should be a good car for her.

Cash for Clunkers didn’t get this one.

Good for us.

(How about that “Cash for Clunkers” program, anyway? Our debt to the Chinese….covered by America’s affordable used cars. What did that do for us except make it a miracle to find a decent 1,000 dollar car for a college student? But….China needs our steel…so why not pay out some taxpayer dollars to convince us to send our old cars overseas? Buy American!! Complain about the Chinese stuff that comes over to our shores that used to be ONE OF OUR CARS!! Take all of the affordable used car options off the road!! WHAT A STUPID PROGRAM!!!)

Whew…..what was I saying? Oh….yeah….Zoe got a car.

I licensed and tagged it and got the new title process started and got it inspected and …..all the stuff you do with a new car….yesterday.

That’s a big deal….to get your first car.

Even if you’ve never seen it, it’s a big deal.

Zoe bought a car.

I hope that it’s a good one.

(When I added it to our insurance, the lady at the office said, “Oh, I had a Sentra! It was my first car!” .  I asked her what she thought of it, and she said that she had it for a year….and that it was great….but not flashy enough, so she got a Mustang. COOL!!!)

That’s what I want to put my daughter in….a “not flashy” car.

Gramma car for Zoe…..all the way!!
