The car search began and ended this afternoon. After putting in a description of what we wanted: A Honda Civic, 2001-current, black, blue or silver, four doors, we waited a few days and received a response. It was Shoreline Mist, a grayish color-silver with a hint of something else. The something else was gold in early afternoon, blue as the snow feel, and steel as I pulled up and parked out front tonight. 2006. 33,000 miles. One owner. From Pueblo. It is beautiful. Once the snow has stopped, I’ll post pictures of the interior and the exterior in better light. It runs beautifully. Acceleration is not a problem at all. Tight turning radius. Love. Lots of it.
Grandma Mary and Aunt Sally arrived to witness the show, seeing it, they expressed their approval. Sitting in the car on the way to AAA, Mom gave me a talk. She warned me that we may want to walk away, and not to let our emotions get the better of us. As we accelerated onto the highway, I believe that all thoughts of walking away left her mind. She agreed.
I, of course, have fallen in love.
