We bought the Trailblazer

This is a diary entry from 1 July.

We bought the Trailblazer. It's beautiful, and my wife loves it. It's her first new vehicle. I have thus insured domestic tranquility for a time.

I'm now driving her 1999 Ford Escort, which is fine EXCEPT it's a small car and I am NOT a small man. (I'm an ex-football player, 6'6" and 350 lbs. Picture Tony Soprano with a Ph.D. and better hair.)

Between the Trailblazer and the extra expenses, including the balance on the Trooper, we're paying about the same amount per month as we'd be paying for the Trooper plus what it would have cost to repair it.

Any time it costs the same amount to repair an old vehicle as it does to replace it, I vote to replace it.
