New Member of the Family

The car "crisis" is over. Last night Andrea bought a new Matrix XR (in "cosmic blue" -- who knew there was such a color?! Oh Joy!). Only two dealerships were involved. Sadly, at the first, though they were able to get us the car we wanted, they were "old school" in the sales department - pushy, condescending, and otherwise offensive. So, I got us out of there (I declared that we needed to discuss this important decision over dinner) and off we went to Bredemann Toyota of Park Ridge. Wow! What a difference! Suddenly, we were the experts and they were accomodating our requests.

We have not yet named the new car. The Double Yellow Beetle is "Hoover" ("Hoobs," for short). Other already-used names in the family include: Andrea, Debra, Wenzel, and Kirbie. We are happy to take suggestions for the new car's name.
