Gentle Friends our weekend was a whir of crazy trauma and then triumph......... it started off normal... Saturday morning off to Noah's for bagels and coffee, then on to Safeway for the weekly grocery shopping..... and then out to the "shops"..... after all the fun and on the way home through the Castro and up over the hill and down into Noe Valley, the car (our 16 year old car) starting making clicking noises and then all of a sudden loud knocking , click - thud - stop - the last leg of the car finally gave out. After pushing it out of the intersection and into a parking spot I called Rico and he walked down the hill - I was within 4 blocks of getting home - we decided then and there to not put more money into fixing it and to finally get a new car.
I spent the evening and until about 12:30 am reading reviews and doing research on the car I wanted. Sunday morning dawned bright and early and off we went, via the bus, to look and hopefully get a car..... after about 3 hours we were driving home with our new car.......
.... it's a 2013 Mini Cooper, the colour is Metallic Iced Chocolate. Our other sad car we decided to donate to the SPCA and I am arranging that today. It's great to have a reliable car again!!
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by!!
