Re: h. foetiditus from Judy

Judy: Thanks on the congrats. I've learned that when it takes me less
than 4 years to put on over 100,000 miles, it doesn't really pay to
finance all the bells and whistles, though. But, you know what...I'm
very happy with this van so far. It seems to make something in my cheap
(aka frugal) soul feel very good to just have a plain economy version.
:-) I am after all the woman who is famous among family and friends for
my refusal to buy clothing at retail cost...I pretty much only ever shop
consignment for myself and the entire family. I can't tell you how happy
I am for instance when I get a great deal...like the pair of $400 Ralph
Lauren suede pumps I got a couple of years ago for $6...or the $300 Liz
Claiborne suit I bought for $35 a few months ago. I love saving money!

Congrats on the new car. Sounds like you got a good deal. Minivans are
such<br>fun. I'm wearing out my second one. Have to confess I like the
bells &<br>whistles, even though they are a pain to fix.<br>-----

AM<br>Subject: [CHAT] h. foetiditus from Judy<br><br><br>> Judy: Finally
got around to checking the post office box tonight on the<br>> way to
work. Plants arrived just fine and are in great shape still. Have<br>>
to wait out this darn cold weather so will have to pot them up for
the<br>> next couple of weeks...weather unusually cold here right
now.<br>><br>><br>> Ooh...my big news of the weekend though is I bought
my first brand new<br>> car since I graduated from college, almost 20
years ago! Old minivan was<br>> dying by stages on a daily basis...no
rear heat, no air conditioning,<br>> power window on driver's side a
goner and passenger side going, no LCD<br>> display on the radio, and
this past week the antilock braking system and<br>> traction control
systems were going bad. So I bought a new minivan...no<br>> power
anything!! Roll down crank windows and no automatic locking doors,<br>>
no power sliding doors...it's great! Nothing power that will be
super<br>> expensive to fix; the salesman at the dealership couldn't
believe how<br>> happy I was when I saw it! Drove it off the lot with
only 5 miles on the<br>> odometer...woo hoo! And about 4000 dollars
cheaper than the minivan's<br>> with the simplest of bells and whistles,
about 10 thousand cheaper than<br>> the ones fully loaded. Made me feel
good to save that kind of money!<br>><br>><br>> Now, I wonder how long
it will be before I can bring myself to throw dirty<br>pots and bags of
mulch, soil, etc. in it??? LOL!!<br>><br>> Melody<br>> Hills, IA zone
