Guess who’s home from college? Yes, Malik finished his second year at Bowie State University and he is back home. I really missed him and am happy to have him back, but I am also bit apprehensive because it’s also time for him to get another car!
Last year his car was totaled as he was leaving work, we didn’t replace it at the time because he was heading back to school. However, since then, he and his father have both been searching for a replacement vehicle and the time has come to do so.
Knowing that this next vehicle will be used with high mileage, his father will make sure that it’s in good working condition and well maintained which also includes a clean engine.
So while they are out and about searching for just the right car, I will be sitting home
searching purchasing just the right motor oil to keep that engine clean.
In today’s busy world, there is little time to make a trip to the store. Why fight the crowds?

Hello Friends, we have a new addition to the family!
On Wednesday, we welcomed a new little bundle to the family, it’s name is Spark, Chevy Spark. When Tayair pulled up the driveway I almost cried, it was the cutest little car I’ve ever seen. Not quite as small as a “Smart Car” but just as cute and compact as the Volkswagen Beetle was back in the ’30’s.
The 2002 Hyundai Elantra that Malik was driving began acting up, even after a replaced engine, the brakes and rods began to go and it just nickeled and dimed us so it was time to get rid of it, we will donate it to Goodwill. We decided to hand down the 2005 Honda that was purchased in April and then get Tayair a new vehicle. My husband had visited Diver Chevrolet last week and thought the Spark would be the perfect car for him, one that would get him from Point A to Point B and would last for many, many, many years!
Not having purchased a new vehicle since 2005, it was amazing to see all the bells and whistles in this basic car. I thought my friend’s Mercedes was loaded with amazing features but this little Spark was also equipped with some awesome controls, including Sirius XM Radio, Bluetooth, 9 airbags, USB outlet, touchscreen infotainment system, steering wheel mounted audio controls, and an emergency communication system (OnStar 6-month free trial).
I didn’t realize it was a 4-door, and squealed with delight when he opened the back doors, so cute and surprisingly comfortable with ample leg and head room.
The trunk was a bit too small for me and there isn’t a spare tire, instead an air compressor and a can of “fix it flat”, but with OnStar just a push of a button will get you emergency service.
This vehicle will be in the family for a long time to come and I can honestly say that it’s a welcomed addition even with the car payments!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!
This morning I woke up blessed but stressed which is not the norm for me. Before driving into work I stopped at Middletown Car Care to check on the status of “Miranda”, Tayair’s old car. We took it in last week for a diagnosis to determine if is was worth having it serviced and then given to Malik or not serviced and left on the lot to be sold. I don’t like being stressed or carrying a burden so I am going to relax, take a deep breath, exhale and then release it into the atmosphere.
Friday Eve and it’s not very Springy, it’s overcast and cloudy, a “jeans and t-shirt” type of day, but since I can’t wear that to work it’s a “two-tone dress” type of day.
These legs really need some sun!
Earrings were a gift from an IBM manager that I supported in 1983!
