Busy Lives and New Trucks
Life has been overly hectic of late and I've been out the of loop with my online presence, but the good news is my rental property is now ready to rent and ads have been placed so we should get a new tenant soon. Besides working on my rental I gave in and bought a new truck. We had several expensive things wrong with my old truck and it was 12 years old and had 180K miles on it. Now I have a vehicle that doesn't need work and even if it does, for now I can drop it off at the dealer and get a loaner while they work on it. This gives us more time to work on the toy cars instead of the daily drivers.
I basically replaced my old truck with the new version, it's a Ford F150 XLT extended cab. The only difference, besides being shiny and new, is this truck has a 6'5" bed instead of the long bed. It is easier to park though, and it has a variety of nifty little features like a Sync system so I can plug in my iPod or use Bluetooth. And it's a different shade of blue. I love it!
