Goodbye, Old Car

Our '08 Ford Explorer has been hauled away, and will go to a car auction.  We thought about keeping it, but we drove a wrecked car for many years and don't want to do that again.  Illinois does not want you to drive a rebuilt car that has been totaled, and they make the process difficult. Our car insurance company would not insure it if we had it rebuilt.  Oh Well, it has been a very good and faithful vehicle.  We replaced it with another Ford.

In other news, we pick up glass every time we go outside.  We are amazed at the distance from the house we find sizable chunks.  We need every bit of it picked up because the dogs need to walk in the driveway.

All of the victims of our car thief/house breaker have been inconvenienced and have had considerable expenses replacing their vehicles.  The perpetrator meanwhile is enjoying free housing, three meals a day, free legal assistance, and we have to be careful to mention that he is only charged, not convicted at this time.  Well, at least I have a prettier roommate than he probably has.  Take a look at the White County Jail roster for a look at life's other side. Our guy is Inmate #283,658.

37 years old and he looks like a very rough 70. He makes me appreciate a whole bunch of things like vegetables, hydration, vitamins, exercise, Mom and apple pie.

Meth can age a person incredibly fast. He looks like a real example of that. Glad you are all OK, and you are fortunate that you didn't get caught-up in the "Criminal Justice System" yourselves by the actual administration of Justice!
