Skate

Waah! The National Kidney Foundation's flatbed truck came and picked up Skate, aka The Wee Red Car. Part of me feels like crying because it was such a terrific little car for me for so many years. 18 years, in fact, but who's counting?

I do hope they sell Skate as a car, rather than for parts. I'd hate to see that happen. It's one of the reasons I opted for donation instead of selling to a service that I was almost positive would junk any car they got. At least with the donation, there's at least a slim chance they'll let the car live.

Bye, Skate, and thanks for a ton of great memories, many of which wouldn't exist if I hadn't had a car to take myself and friends to and from the event. I'll miss you.
