The Status of the Vehicle
We picked up the vehicle. It costs us $152 to get it out of the pound. Then I saw it. The front end has quite a bit of damage. We have a $1,000 deductible. Someday I'm going to blog about why we are broke, but it's one of those subjects I hate to even broach.
But anyway, we don't have the money to pay for the damage and we don't have money in the budget to pay for the towing. But the damaged car is in our driveway. And we paid the $152.
Kari drove it home for me. Before we left, I let her select the gas station where we would relieve ourselves and buy her a coffee. The picture above shows the facilities she chose. The station was being remodeled and they had these portapoties. At least they were deluxe ones, complete with showers. But no, we didn't shower.
Upon arriving in our driveway Kari reported, "I hope my kids don't ruin my mellow. Can you get high off residual pot smoke?"
