Pickup shopping

It is 8 AM and we are in Creston at a Hardee's. Stopped here so I could get on the internet and do some price checking on Kelley Blue Book and NADA. We are driving to Des Moines today to look for a pickup. Our poor old 1993 is telling us it is tired, ie; transmission and or 4WD. We are looking at a 2004!! That will be so "new" for us! ha ha I do all of the "dealing". LaVern just looks at the vehicle and tells me that is the one and then he leaves while I do the trading! I love it! I have bought all our vehicles during our married life and I can tell you some real dandy stories. But no time today!! Sorry so long in not blogging but I have been home without a vehicle. LaVern has been driving the pickup to work. One of our sons had a breakdown with his truck so we took the car up to him. He drives 30 miles to work one way so needless to say he has enjoyed driving the ole Buick to work. It ususally gets 27 mpg on the highway.
Well, must run and look at a couple maps before we go. Enjoy your weather if you are getting what we are...............suppose to reach 60 next week! Hurrah! Goodbye snow.
