momma got a brand new car

my momma that is!  and it's a brand new to her car.  to fully appreciate this good news let me take you back to what she's been driving over the last 30 years...

Meet Stretch....
this is the 1984 Lincoln Town Car my parents bought brand new.  My mom drove it until 2008 when she donated it to Habitat for Humanity. In the end stretch had no air, that meant for a hot ride!

Then she started driving the old truck that Eddie had previously used...
again no air...no comfort...it was hurting her image!

so a couple weeks ago after years of driving cars with no air conditioning in the heat of summer she bought a new (2009)  car that is comfortable, small, and perfect for her.
Sorry, these are so dark!  It was 9pm and we had been there for two hours with Molly!  How many kids would have sat in a stroller while you shopped for and test drove cars??  She was a real trooper!  Anyway, now mom feels like she is actually part of this decade and driving a nice car.  It's just a Kia, not a Cadillac but it's just the same to her!....well almost!
