Holly’s new Car(t)
For Christmas I bought Holly a new car. She had wanted a convertible. Something where she could put the top down. Something bright canary yellow. Something fast like Ben’s rocket wagon. Of course, I’m just kidding – she’s not going through a mid-life car crisis! She’s a much more practical lady.
Actually she helped me pick out this little hot rod when we saw it on sale for half price at the local farm supply store. The box claimed it can carry 1,000 lbs but I suggested we not load it with more than half that. I suspect that the manufacturers have exagerated the capacity and we have pretty rough terrain. Perhaps it can hold that much on a flat, smooth concrete floor but not being dragged over our rough hills.
We did wrap it up and the kid’s opened it on Christmas day. They had been wondering what was in that huge box. While it isn’t a Camaro it is a lot more practical and we are all certainly making good use of it lugging stuff around during chores, up and down the hill.
