We're Back!

Having sifted through eBay and several car lots full of pitiful cars in the $2000 price range, we came across a car that fit us very well. Believe it or not, we now own a 1990 Jaguar XJ6. It's a nice four door with lots of extras including working A/C!



The only down side in my opinion is that it only came with a valet key. I found this out (after signing all the papers) when the green topped key wouldn't open the trunk. A quick read through the owner's manual revealed that the trunk had been locked with the black topped master key and couldn't be opened without it. No doubt that will cost a bit to acquire a new key, but otherwise this is a very nice car.



After Mike H. dropped us off at the car lot, we drive 3½ hours to Ulysses, Pennsylvania to spend the weekend with my cousin Brad and his family. We had a great time together (despite staying up until midnight talking). Chad and his family joined us the next day for the service and a cook out. We had a great time. Jefferson also enjoyed playing with his second cousins and dressing up as Spiderman!



We're finally home and are thankful for what God has provided for us. Not only did we obtain what seems to be a reliable car, but we also were able to visit with friends and family. It's been a good weekend.
