Egads! Is it really mine?!!

Well, it'll never hold a portable massage table, but Thursday, one month after my father's death, I drove home in my first brand spankin' new car! It is without a doubt, the nicest thing I've ever driven. 2005 redfire Ford Mustang V6 coupe. Ahhh....yeah! Takes me back to my first car... a candy apple red 68 Mustang. This thing feels like the older car, just with wonderful modern touches. Well, it's going to be a lesson in discipline and restraint, because it is a powerful vehicle. I couldn't even imagine the V8 with 300 horsepower. The V6 with 210 hp is more than plenty.

Just a week or two before my dad went into the hospital we were talking about buying a classic Mustang convertible and going on a road trip. He was excited about it and wanted to go down and find one that afternoon. I had a couple massage clients scheduled that afternoon and couldn't go. I know he knew he wasn't going to live much longer and just wanted to pass it on to me. Thanks Dad.

So, I'm in a bit of surreal whirl... it's just lovely, sitting there in the driveway. And, yes... when I have an outcall, Bhaktirose and I will have to swap cars for the day. I can let it I can...uh huh uh huh.

I have a couple massage sessions this morning... can't wait for the drive!
