Amazing how life can take you quickly away from what you have planned. Took mom's (or ours now since mom passed) convertable to town for a quick firework shopping expendition. 6 hours later we've traveled 75 miles, visited numerous firework stands, and checked every car dealership looking for a work car that does not require 2 quarts of oil every 200 miles and still gets 40 mpg. Found something which means I have to go back tomorrow after work to test drive and get a price. No sewing today, bummer.
