For a while, Mary owned the building she grew up in. It was a family-owned placed, and she was the last in the family. We would drive to Chicago a couple of times a year to check up on the place and bring some things home to Atlanta. She decided she wanted to have a minivan so we could haul more stuff home with us, so we bought a 2002 Honda Odyssey. It’s been our main vehicle ever since.
I had a 1992 Honda Accord that I mainly used to drive to the office, on business when I went someplace nearby (like Knoxville or Bimingham), and to and from the airport after we bought the van. After 21 years, we decided to donate it to the St. Vincent DePaul Society at church. For all I know, it’s still going, somewhere.
I’d write some more, but I’m at the maximum time…
