A Special Anniversary

Today is a very special day.  The 20th anniversary of the purchase of my first car – damn I’m old.

I don't know where you are today, old friend, but I remember our adventures together. Via con Dios, amigo.

A lot has changed in those twenty years.  Used to be, I’d fill up the tank for less than 10 bucks and just burn it off driving aimlessly around, the suspension straining under the load of 5 unruly teenagers.  It was fun.  Now, a fillup costs 40 bucks or more and the bulk of my travel is commuting.  That’s a chore I leave to a train conductor – because one thing hasn’t changed.  I still want driving to be fun.
