Its Alive!!!!!!

After only a mere 15 years Joby got his purple betty running!


Joby says that 15 years is normal to restore a vehicle. Somehow.... I don't think he's being truthful.

Jobys helping me to appreciate old things. Its a slow process. I'm on level 2. "Embracing not new" I just moved up from level 1 "refraining from calling old things stupid."

Its still hard. The temptation is still there. I see an antique and I can taste the contempt in my mouth and I want to give in....but I've come too far.

One day at a time.

It's ALLIIIIIVVVEEE!!

We could discuss how Paul bought a 1974 land cruiser last year with the intent of fixing it up and instead we sold it 4 months ago for $600. Something doesn't add up...

I meant to say we paid $1000 for it and then sold it not more than 6 months later for $600. We got hosed. HOSED. I HATE OLD CARS.

But go ahead Joby, live your dream.
