Mom and Dad got rid of their sedan this weekend, getting $US5,000 value for something with 185,000 miles on the odometer. If the dealership charged back the cost of vacuuming up the doghair, they would have lost money.
Did I mention it was a BMW? Hardly a farm vehicle, but in our household, everything pulled ranch duty at some point. They replaced it with a Kia Sorento and mum was delighted to hear the thing had Bluetooth in the dash for hands-free talking. We've officially hit the 21st Century if Mom's truly fired up about those kinds of bells and whistles. Of course, it's a moot point if the damn cellular service isn't working where they live, and it rarely is for me.
- Bluetooth? Hell, how about a car that charges up your failing heart with the cigarette lighter?
- Some 13-year-old kid just summitted Everest.I'm sure the experience will make for a hell of a college admissions essay.
- I think there must be a law that only west of the Mississippi can an election be settled by drawing playing cards.
- Just because Copernicus is still dead after 500 years doesn't mean he can't be reburied. Why the fuss? It's not like the universe revolves around him.
