Our old bug reached the end of its life Friday. The cost of repairs were more than car payments on a new car.
And so we bought a new Bug. We had no urge to pay car payments again but we didn’t have much of a choice. The unexpected part was the sense of loss over giving up our old car. That car took us to-and-from many happy places and a few sad and terrible ones over the course of 13 years. It will be missed. On a fun note: I noticed (after driving away in it) that the new car matches my Converse almost perfectly!
We went by Quilt Ventura and I bought a spool of Aurifil 50wt thread (white).
