in a Split second, can go from “curmudgeon, to elation” – – just don’t take my Bimmer away;-)

Today I woke up to find out that everyone I knew going into Dec. 31 of 2008, is still among the happy go lucky crowd of 2009. Although some are moving a bit slower than others, some not moving beyond the bedroom, some made it to the living room, and me well I made my round to my friends house and to the store and also filled up my car with fuel.

What most impressed me today is that, even after all the designated driving, I still had 9 miles left in my tank. When I went to my usual gas station, GAstown, I was able to fill up for just under the 23 USDs. I was so elated that, the memory of all those red lights, heavy traffic and delayed intersections faded as I walked from rear passenger side of my car (German engnr 4u), to my driver door.

Now if I can only go to Fields Auto group, and have the routine service done, and leave with the same exsuberance I will be able to say, my 2009 is on my side…. but no 137.98 USDs later I am once again wishing I had a ford pinto… but that lasts only the length of time it take to start my car and zip down the curves through Maitland, then I am content again.

No worries
