Celebrating 200!

My wife and I are celebrating turning 200. No not our anniversary and not our combined birthdays. Let me get right to it. We are celebrating our car turning 200, as in over 200,000 miles. That is a big deal. It is 14 years old, we have only had it for just over 4 years 100,000 of the 200,000 miles.

It has a few things that don't work as they used to, but it is still getting us where we need to go. One of the doors no longer locks or unlocks electronically. The windshield has a big crack. The fan on the heater either goes full blast or barely blows. The front seat no longer moves forward or back, it is just where it is all the time. The driver's side of the front seat is a little like a rocking chair and the electronic antennae no longer goes all the up or down. But it still runs.

So here's to long miles and long lives. Here's to cars that keep on, keeping on. Here's to long rides and pleasant sights.
