I thought of doing that but decided not to. I really don't enjoy driving anymore and can't afford the insurance and plates and gas and repairs. My little rural city has minimal public transit but I can use it and get by. My brother can take me to the store once a week. I am close enough to downtown that I can walk there. I will be able to get by.

The guy on fb is no longer interested in my car, says "price not good". Sorry fella, can't go any lower. I'll just leave it up there and see if anyone else wants to look at it.

Did you look up the NADA value of the car? That may be what potential buyers use as a guideline. Is it a 2014 Corolla?

Yes, I did. Based on that, I set my price. It's such low mileage it's worth it. And it's in great shape too, for being 7 yrs old.

Well then, stick to your price. Someone will realize the value.

Least - I hope it works out for you.

Suki - I think you should try to switch if possible. How could they send that when you already complied? It's awful to put a patient on the defensive - you have enough to deal with.

Last night we were sitting on the deck & saw 3 baby raccoons, staring at us from a nearby big, old tree. It was like something out of a storybook. I realize they'll probably be rooting through our trash all winter, but still.....

I looked it up, and added $500 to the price cause of the low mileage. I'll go as low as $8.000 if I have to.

Baby raccoons... Yes, they'll be going thru your trash. Do you keep your trash in a secure container? I like our city's trash carts cause they keep the critters out.

Actually - we try not to put it outside at all. There's no pick up where we live, so we go to the dump a couple times a week.

I received my pants order today from JC Penney. I ordered a size 10 and 12 because I wasn't sure what size I am now. Well, the 10 fit and is even a tiny bit loose in the waist and thigh, so, if my older daughter can wear the size 12, I'll just give them to her. She wouldn't take any gas money for taking me to visit Mom, so this would be a way to thank her.

Least, I am cheering you on and hope you get your price. Very wise move, it costs so much to run a car theses days, even if you don't use it much. Transit and your brother will be just the ticket for you.

Bubba got all his fishing gear out of the locker today, good rod and reel, net, tackle box full of good lure and hooks and line...and we drove up to the cottage where my niece is and he gave it to little King of Hearts. He taught him and his dad how to cast the line and fish....neither one had done it before. And then....little King caught several sunfish, squealed with delight and then yelled at Uncle Bubba to throw it back quick before it died, lol. He cannot kill anything but did love fishing. Here are a couple of pics...


First the joy of the catch...that he didn't want to touch....







Then the worried look that it might die...it didn't...and they threw it back.








Later he showed his sister how to fish, minus the hook. She is not well behaved on the dock (so usually banned) so it was nice to see her stand quietly with him.

Ann, love the pictures! How kind of him to throw them back in the water.

Suki, now you know what size you wear. That was nice of your daughter to not take any gas money for taking you to visit your mom.

Billie ate her supper then did a LW in the dog yard. It's raining a bit, off and on, supposed to have T storms overnight. When I hear thunder, I always think of Jack and how afraid of it he was. I hope it doesn't scare him in heaven.

There's another person interested in the car. Fingers crossed. He is going to call me tomorrow and arrange to come see it. From a town about 40 miles away. Wanted to know how come such low mileage. I told him I was just lucky to get it in '15 with so few miles on it as a 3 yr old lease car. Fingers crossed...

Suki - I'm glad the pants thing worked out.

Least - Hoping for success with the car.

Ann - Such lovely pics of Bubba & the little king. I love him for not wanting to kill the fish. The last pic of the two children is so precious.

Tomorrow I'll have no power all day - electric co. has to do some repairs. May not see you until late.
