We got our second new/used car yesterday.

And ... per my wishes ... I won't be sharing what we bought except to tell you that it is a foreign car that we did enough research on to know that we'll be happy with it.

Plus it's "Fire Engine Red" which is all Andrew wanted out of a car.

ME: "What kind of car do you want, Andrew?"

ANDREW: "A red one."

ME: "No ... do you want a minivan? A big car? A small car?"

ANDREW: "A red car."

So he got his wish.

The most wonderful ironic thing about this whole "Two new cars" deal is that on Friday, THE DAY that we picked up our car last week, the gas prices at the gas station we use went from $2.22 that morning to $2.33 that afternoon and finally $2.48 by 6:30 that night.

Just in time to switch to a compact car, baby!

Our car guy said that at the auto auction in Orlando yesterday, the usual rush to buy SUVs and trucks was nonexistant as all the buyers flocked to the compact cars because THAT'S what people want now ... more fuel-efficient vehicles.

So we're actually on the cutting edge of car buying for a change.


The wife just informed me that we have to carpool for the last time this morning so I can pick up the new car this afternoon.

So I have to quit writing this and get in the shower.

Hey Mattie Gee ... I need a ride to get my new car.

Can ya help a brutha man out?
