Remember that car accident I mentioned recently that my sister and nephew were in?
Of course the car was written off, well both cars were. The other driver had no insurance apart from the compulsory insurance you pay for with registration. They’d been visiting family nearby and I wonder if they were unfamiliar with country driving? It’s quite different from city driving.
So my sister rang up a car yard in Adelaide and bought a car over the phone after seeing it online. It was a second hand one but had only done 1000kms. I got to pick it up and drive it over to her all the while being petrified I’d scratch it or crash it. Luckily that didn’t happen.
I put a photo of me and the car on Facebook so now many of my Facebook friends think I have a new car. I don’t. If they didn’t read the comments many of them still think I have a new car. I still have my 14 year old sedan that’s doing just fine. However, I did get new car envy with things like Bluetooth, and buttons on the steering wheel I can’t read without my glasses, and an on-board navigation system. Wow. Technology. When I got my current car I thought it was great to have a CD player.
We stayed the night at my sister’s and all I saw was car yard ads. Is the universe telling me something? My son seems to think so as he keeps dropping hints about our old car and that we should have a new one.
Usually when I go over to my sisters or parents around this time of year I see paddocks full of yellow flowering canola, but this year it was just paddocks full of yellow weeds as in the above photo. I’m not sure what plant it is but I think it’s weeds. Maybe I’m wrong.
So, how old’s your car?
