Goodbye Old Friend

I was saddened the other day when I had to say goodbye to my beloved 1993 Ford Taurus. We went through fourteen years, four states and thousands of miles together. My wife learned to drive in her. She brought home my baby from the hospital. That's a lot of memories.

Her brakes failed. It would have cost a lot to fix her, but in the end the cost wasn't the issue. Safety was really the deciding factor. If I weren't married with a kid, I would have probably poured more money into her.

I took the cigarette lighter out and put it in our other car as a memento. Good bye old friend, I will remember and miss you!
