|Bill's new mode of transportation?|
Well, it finally happened. Bill's 1990 Jeep Laredo bite the dust.
Just two weeks ago Bill took it to Kenny's Auto Repair, his favorite local yokel repair guy. That visit was a brake drum problem that cost $240 to repair. Two days later, Bill notices a puddle of water underneath his trust Jeep. Was this his 32 year old vehicle having bladder problems because of old age. We had a old dog with a similar problem. The end was near for our dog as it is for Bill's Jeep.
Bill dropped his car off yesterday at Kenny's. He got The Call today. Kenny told him that he's just wasting his money pouring more money into his Jeep. Kenny called this morning with the bill, $450.00. More money down the tubes.
This is the Jeep that waited for me at the Downingtown train station all those years that I used to commute to my banking job in Philadelphia (1980-1994).
This is the same Jeep Bill used to visit his friend Damon and his family. Damon's oldest boys always got a kick out of playing with the buttons that raised and lowered the front seats.
This is the Jeep that made uncounted trips to Home Depot and Loew's and too many garden centers to count loaded up with wood, metal, mulch and dirt.
Yep, this is THAT same Jeep. Poor thing.
Tomorrow we go out and look for a new used Jeep.
Sad times folks, sad times.
