Sharing One Car Soon Comes to an End
My sister and I have been sharing one car for two years after our Jeep went to car heaven. Going from a two car family to one, was a big change. It takes thoughtful planning and good organizational skills to make sure everyone gets to their destination. Due to a tight family budget, Laura and I didn't for see a second car in our near future which is what makes this story so much sweeter.
How we got a Great Deal on a Convertible
My sister and I went to our local American Legion for a meat raffle and bumped into our good friends. We met Fran and Betty over eight years ago while attending a chili cook-off in town. No longer having parents, they fill that maternal/paternal void and we became fast friends. We have a deep connection with the couple who are now in their eighties.
Laura and Betty were engrossed in conversation at the meat raffle when I heard, "What did you just say Betty? back up the train." She explained that her daughter Julie was selling her beloved convertible. Laura couldn't believe her ears as it's always been our dream to own one. Now, Fran and I joined in on the conversation and were filled in on the details. Soon, Fran was on his cell phone calling his daughter. "Julie, Linda and Laura have been sharing a car for over two years and are interested in buying your convertible." Then I heard, "Make sure you give them a great deal, you know their like daughters to your mom and I."
The stars aligned that day and we are now owners of a second car. Not just any car; a beautiful, silver, 1998, Chrysler convertible. It's in mint condition because they stored it every winter which saved on miles and rust. Wait! this story gets even better~We bought the car for a song- We only paid $1800.00 for it thanks to the friendship with Fran and Betty. This is a dream come true for Laura and I. It was meant to be that we would happen upon this incredible deal just two months shy of our 50th birthday. "Happy Birthday to us."
