The new Runty

I  had the Volvo for eight years and it had been a very good car.  It was the first car that I picked on my own and drove it just about solely for the duration.

But it is eight years old, over 100,000 miles and was giving me grief.  Not to mention costlier to maintain each time I took it to the shop.

It's time to say goodbye.

Meet the spanking new Runty!

Of course it's blue.  What did you expect?

That I am, and I am so grateful.

I was in training all afternoon this week.  And that made it a 12-hours day week.  At the end of each day I was so glad to get on the road back home so I was quite surprised when Carl asked if I went back to the office after training Tuesday afternoon.  Of course not.  I could not wait to get home.

Wednesday morning I walked in to the office at five a.m. and understood why he asked.

This was on my desk.

These were inside:

One dozen blue roses.  Blue roses.

Came with their own blue vase.

And the note:

How can you be more loved?
