I must say, I had an excellent year, and an excellent Christmas. The day after, even though I received many nice gifts from my loved ones, I bought myself a fancy-pants krimmis present. It’s a velocity red 2010 Mazda 3 grand touring s – woo hoo!!! Never been used, although it was driven to the McMinnville dealership and back (hence the 215 miles on the odometer). It’s got all the fancy bells and whistles, too! I’ve never bought a new car before, and I don’t know if I ever will again, but the old Subie has been thinking about retirement for a while now so I figured I’d give her a break.
