So a few days ago when I noticed this
It was bittersweet!
My baby's all growed up! It was very exciting, but also nerve wracking because I had to remember to keep an eye on that odometer reading, and those of you who know me will verify that I can be a tad distracted at times. I mean, my hawk like attention to detail is tuned keenly to the road, man. You'll also understand that I'm not that good at estimating mileage and distance, so I had no real clue about where I'd be when the big change came. So I took lots of photos.
|Might have expended some of that diligent focus on a little cleaning binge, but let's stop focusing on my shortcomings, shall we?|
|When I noticed this on Friday evening, I knew it would be soon.|
We drove right past our street and into the night, keeping watch and planning a big celebration for the inevitable moment. Our plans included reckless beeping of horns and flashing of lights.
|Shit just got real.|
|Settle down, woman!|
|beeep beeeep BEEEEEEEEP!!!|
|Yes I did pull over for a more clear shot.|
The next morning, I started off down the road toward 200k.
Here's to the next chapter!
