How did this car find its way into my possession? Well, it's a long story. People say that I am lucky, and I guess I am, though I must say that most of my luck has to do with having a lot of support, knowing an opportunity when I see one and being willing to take risks. In any case, I will no longer have to worry that my Ford, which has 300,000 miles, will break down at a moment's notice and leave me without transportation. Of course this Subaru comes with no guarantees, but it has only 45,000 miles on it and has been very well cared for. It seems more likely that it is the one with the longer life ahead of it. It has some luxuries I have never had, too, like air conditioning and four wheel drive. It's a pretty green with black interior, and the only part of it I dislike is the spoiler on the back end. Those things make cars look like they are in heat, or farting.
I have been preoccupied with trying to set up another blog where I will post paintings for sale. Lisa gave me this idea and she has had some financial success with it herself. I managed to get the link to the blog under my links listed here on this one, so it is available for viewing now. It's really not very interesting yet and has only paintings that are not for sale pictured at this point. I have to set up an account with ebay and paypal before I can sell anything. I'm hoping to get it going this week-end. I don't consider myself any kind of entrepreneur and predict a short and uneventful life for this new blog...........but I'm going to give it a try anyway, assuming I get around to setting up the necessary accounts.
