And there’s one more thing, I’ve got the pink slip, daddy…

Five years ago, shortly after deidrecorwyn and I broke up, I found myself signing papers that said I agreed to be responsible for paying a lot of money to Wells Fargo bank in exchange for them letting me drive their car around.

A few days ago, I made the final payment on that loan.

Today, I got the title in the mail.

I’m terribly pleased about this. 🙂

    a) You should be pleased. Congrats!

    ii) Now you and the lass can start putting away some of the money that went to monthly loan payments towards a down-payment for whichever of you is going to need a new car next. (Or on a house?) Aren’t cycles wonderful? 🙁

    3) I gather pink slip has something to do with paying off the loan? To me it means either a layoff notice or being involuntarily confined for psychiatric treatment. Hopefully you’re not a candidate for either of these last two. 🙂

    None Of The Above) Hmmph. The Comment Form has a Smiley Face to click on to chose one of a limited number of not-to-my-liking-at-all subject icons, but no drop-down list to select one of my user pics. I wonder what will show when I post this.

        o/~ She’s got a competition clutch with the four on the floor
        And she purrs like a kitten till the lake pipes roar
        And if that ain’t enough to make you flip your lid
        There’s one more thing, I got the pink slip daddy… o/~

        From the Beach Boys classic “Little Duece Coup”. In California in the 50s and 60s, the Certificate of Title for an automobile was pink.
