I had a rather astonishing 55th birthday yesterday. I am blessed with wonderful friends and family.

Dad had given me a check to replace Bessie the Car with a younger used car.
I planned on taking my time. I started doing research on what I could get with the money and no financing. That meant no CRV or Escape.

Fits were simply not available in the price\mileage range. Nissan Versa hatchbacks were available. I checked the rental agencies available used cars and had a list of details. That seemed the most practical route to go.

On impulse I stopped at the Nissan dealership. I rejected the first three suggestions as too high or too much mileage.

We found a 2012 hatchback with 3,300 miles on it. It had just been put up for sale. It had been used as a loaner car at the dealership. It is certified and has a 60,000 mile warranty.

They are taking Bessie as trade to use for the taxes, title, etc., which are not inconsiderable.

Car is unnamed at this point. I am thinking something out of LOTR. Past cars have been named for racehorses, dragons and relatives.

Current Mood: stunned
