One red car leaves, another rolls on in.

I've always loved my father's Toyota MR2:

But it's a stick shift, which I've never learned, so I've been unable to drive it. Over the past few months Daddy toyed with the idea of selling the car to Seanie, but ultimately that transaction never worked out because Seanie was unemployed for much of that time. Finally, Daddy turned to the Internet to sell the car. A buyer came to the house today at 8 am, took the car for a spin, and decided the car was great and took it away, and now I'll never ride in that li'l car again.

Daddy must have been feeling the loss, too, because when I got home that afternoon there was a brand new 2010 Mazda Miata, happy red, sitting in our driveway.

That's two new cars for Daddy in a month. Mom's gonna go through the roof!
