Drivin' my blue car, Baby...

In February of 1999, just before I moved to Illinois, Pete bought himself his first new car. 
 It very much became a part of him, and of our lives.

 Yesterday he took it in to the VW dealer that sold us our van to see what we could get for trade-in value. This morning it wouldn't start.
 It must have known the inevitable was coming.
 So long little blue Golf. You saw us through many many miles. 152,995 miles.
It was not easy to say goodbye.'s pretty exciting to go for your very first drive in your brand new car.
So now, this: 
Welcome to the family, New Blue Car.

Sweet! Was there supposed to be a video in this posting? If so, I can't seem to make it work. It comes up as a photo instead.
