Bought a car (and named it Kermit)
In order to have proper adventure potential, I am now the proud new owner of a lime-green Ford Fiesta. His name is Kermit, mostly because it couldn't have been anything else, really. He's not new, but new to me, and not too many miles on him.
For those of you didn't know me in high school or college, I had a red Isuzu Trooper just like this, named Clifford The Big Red Car (after Clifford The Big Red Dog). Clifford was the provider of many excellent adventures up and down the east coast, so Kermit has a tough act to follow.
Here we are, after a wash and a wax in Drinkstone! (And yes, Kermit matches the grass.)
I may need to order one of these needle-felted Kermits from Etsy to sit on the dashboard. This is a car that definitely needs a mascot.
Special thanks to Team Todd in Drinkstone for the car-finding, polish and moral support!
