Considering how well we did on last week's museum trip and now that I've had my 1996 Crown Victoria repaired (To the tune of $2400!), we are making some resume-living plans. A police interceptor requires parts that are more expensive, but those parts last longer and can take a beating and keep on ticking.
We are making plans to use the Crown Vic's trunk to transport Mr. AOW's scooter.
The trunk of that car is HUGE! Gas mileage is decent: about 20 mpg if I don't drive like a raped ape. In addition, the cabin is big enough to take along plenty of luggage.
Once I learn how to disassemble and reassemble that scooter, we are hitting the road in the Crown Vic, now roadworthy after a few years of deferred maintenance. We haven't gone on a road trip since 2007, at first because Mr. AOW lost his job in January 2008 and later, of course, because of the brain hemorrhage that he had on September 15, 2009.
Mr. AOW and I are too young to sit around cooped up in this house and grow old without making some more memories.
