May 8th – The End of an Era

I finally did the unthinkable. I got rid of the Honda Accord. After 10 years in the family we bid the car Adios!

The Honda was a great little car. I had 259,000 miles on it and it was still going. The car was starting to show signs of age. It was time for something new. My big fear was that the potential repair bills was going to get expensive to keep the car on the road.

So here I am on May 8th, getting ready to drive the Honda for the very last time. Yes – it was a sad moment for the Petersen family. (Although I was over joyed at getting a new car) My son told me that it was the only car he remembered me driving. The car was in the family for three years before Jill came along.

But as luck would have it, I replaced the Honda with a Honda! I went of the Honda Ridgeline. It’san SUV / Pickup. The versatility is perfect for the families current needs.  At least that’s how I pitched the idea to my wife.

I’ve been driving the vehicle for the past 2 weeks and I absolutely love it!
