If it ever breaks down I'll give it a name.
Well, probably several names

Pac, there have been a couple time when we were driving home from somewhere, passed a dealership, a vehicle caught our eye and we stopped and ended up buying it. We were not in the market for a vehicle. We are trying not to be so impulsive now that we're retired. Right now we have a 2006 Monte Carlo, getting close to 100K miles. I love it so much. We have looked around but can't find anything we like as much. It has been a very good car for us, but nothing lasts forever.

I wasn't really looking to do anything until next Spring, but the deals were being offered now. I'm fortunate enough to have a great dealership to work with.

I just finished having some turkey salad on NE style buns for lunch. No more turkey for me for a while. The rest is frozen!

I am an old timer. I do remember when you stood in front of the furniture store window and watched the TV and they had a loud speaker outside so you could hear it. The character I am referring to was called Boston Blackie.

Boston Blackie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The military vehicle was named Jeep after the Popeye character.

I have a sign that says Bah Humbug and it is on the outside of my door. I also have a big pin that has a sheep on it and it says the same thing. I used to wear it on my coat, but it is starting to fade, so I just put it away. When I was waitressing, there were days when I really enjoyed working. Then there were days when I just wanted to slap every customer that came through that door.

That's why we bought DH a truck last summer. From summer to spring, dealerships are offering deals so they can clear last year's models out of the showrooms. In the spring, the new models come in and there are no good deals for a while.

I'm having lunch - English muffin pizza - and then getting ready to go run some errands.

Exactly. And when it comes to Jeeps, the 2014 model was introduced last April. Plus they told me that Jeep makes them increase the price three times/yr, so it would have been due for another increase before April 2014, when the 2015's are introduced

We went to the dealership for a tune-up on my Sunfire. They told us we needed new brakes and the door lock that was tampered with would be over $300. In total, everything would be in excess of $1,000.

TB had seen a van on their website so we decided to look at it. It happened to be parked right under a sign that said "Push, Pull and Drag $2,000 2 days only".

So, saving $2,000 on a newer, better for me vehicle or spend half that to fix a vehicle I rarely drive because it is difficult to get in and out. No brainer so we bought it then and there..

As for a name, it is Maroon in colour and has five doors so I called it Levine. Voice fans and People Magazine readers will get the references

You got to name it Pac!
