Today, we finally become real Trads June 6, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, Domestic Church, family, fun, General Catholic, silliness, Tradition.
We’re off to buy a large van. Now we’re finally full members of the club. Or maybe junior members? It only has 12 seats. Hardcore trads need 15 passenger vans.
And since I prefer the traditional van style, not the newer taller slenderer types, I only have one option anymore. At least that made the shopping very easy. Plus the fact that I can get the van in any color I want, so long as it’s white.
First time I’ve bought a car in 12 years. First time I’ve had to haggle on a car since 1999! When I bought our last two 12 and 14 years ago, I worked at Cisco and got supplier pricing from all domestic brands. I just walked right in and got an awesome price, no fuss or muss. I still miss the mother ship.
I’ll be away this arvonoon closing the deal. Terrifying to think that if we keep this van as long as I’ve kept my truck, we’ll still have it in 2030, when there’ll be flying cars and off-world colonies.
OR, we’ll be living in the white monster after the total collapse of Western Civilization. Definitely one or the other, though…..
Anyone want to buy a “lightly” used Suburban with 210,000 miles on it? In many ways, that Suburban has been the best vehicle I’ve ever owned. It’s been totally bulletproof, except for the transmission. Make that transmissions.
