    Re: RCMC #134 You Have to Be a Little Crazy to Have A Lot of Fun

    A few years ago I got rear ended... just a fender bender at that time... and yeah, when I would be at a stop sign or light and come one would come up behind me I would tense up for a long time after. So I know its just going to take a while on that. But being in something comfortable will help.

    Well I'm open to driving different things but hubby will not buy anything but "American" cars... even though now days there are no truly "American" made vehicles. Everything is put together somewhere else or at least part of it are. (And there was a time many many years ago that we only had VW's... Rabbits, Jetta.... )

    I wouldn't mind having a "smallish" SUV but the insurance is another thing I have to consider. The bigger vehicles are more to insure. I don't want something to big... I live driving smaller vehicles... a mid size I could probably get use to. There was a nice Jeep Liberty that would of been comfy to get in and out of but they don't have a very good track record mechanical wise. Thats one thing about the Focus... In the almost 6 years I had it, it never left me stranded. Oh I had to replace the battery and have the brakes worked on but he never gave me any grief otherwise or had to spend any time in the shop. I did get $11,300 from the insurance for totaling my car. Thats a lot of money for an 8 year old car and a nice down payment.. I don't really need a brand new car, but I'd like to find something that maybe only has around 30,000 miles or less since mine only had 48,000 on it. MickeyMaxx said he and Rixter had gotten a couple of cars from Hertz... they sell low milage cars for less than Blue Book and have all the service records. Looked online at some of the stuff they had and they had quite a few 2012 and 2013's for sale for around $15,000-18,000. That wouldn't be to bad.

    Well, tomorrow is another day and a new plan will hopefully hatch. For now I think I'll go try to get some sleep. I'm sure the Norco and Flexeril will help that. At least I only take them just before I go to bed since I haven't really felt a need to take them during the day.

    Thanks for the support, help and advice Lori!!! I appreciate it! Golly I love my net buddies!!

    Your quite welcome Jody Get some rest. Ahh I remember norco, that was the script I never got filled when I was discharged from the ER. It was only for like 4 or 5 pills. I was too afraid that it would make me hallucinate so I never took it.

    I know a few people who have bought a used car through Hertz. Not too bad of deals especially when they can provide all the service records. Anyway, they didn't seem to have any mechanical problems after buying either. Can't remember what type of car they picked up. I'm trying to remember the car lot I saw when I was in LA recently and its just off the
    I-5. I want to say CarMaxx or something like that. They had a ton of cars on that lot. I drove a Jeep Liberty once when my car was in the shop years ago. Fun little SUV to drive around in. I think the Ford Escapes aren't too bad of a car.

    Well I'm off to bed myself.

    Re: RCMC #134 You Have to Be a Little Crazy to Have A Lot of Fun

    Darn it!!! Sorry I missed seeing you Miss K!!! Well you'll just have to be sure and stop by here more often from now on!!

    Today I think I shall do a mundane thing like some laundry. And a not mundane thing of renting a car tomorrow. Hubby is off to visit a friend of his thats in the continuing care center. He does this every Sunday. And while 99.9% of the time when he goes I sit home and tinker around, this time it seems strange that if I wanted I really can't go anywhere. Darn it all... wish I could get him to get the Blazer running. Why do I pay insurance and registration on these Blazers if I can't have access to them!

    I bought a new television today. My grandson hooked it up just in time for the Bears game.

    The Bears Lost. They made too many mistakes, especially near the end of the game.

    The good thing is that the Hawks are gone, and I can watch them, rather than just listening to the game on the radio. Of course, except if I choose to watch Once Upon A Time instead.

    Re: RCMC #134 You Have to Be a Little Crazy to Have A Lot of Fun

    I love my TV. It's how I unwind after a long day. I sometimes read or knit, but TV is good for when I just want to turn my brain off.

    I do hope you can find something reasonable, Pengy! Maybe for under $15k so your payments will be small.

    In that vein, if you are unable to do your regular housework and your hubby has to do it, you can ask for compensation for that.

    Re: RCMC #134 You Have to Be a Little Crazy to Have A Lot of Fun

    My television weighs all of seven pounds. I am so glad that the new flat screen televisions are so much lower in price than the televisions of old. They cost so much more money, because they were built so large and bulky.
