Good-Bye Old Friend...

It is no secret at the KJ household that we do not keep cars for very long.  The longest I have owned a car was four years and Ken just celebrated his 4th year of owning his Hummer, Humberto.  With that being said, I should not have been surprised at all when Ken started looking at new cars.

I kind of thought that he would keep him forever, but I also knew that he was ready to move onto something that had more options.  Not that the power windows and the thermometer that Humberto had are not options.  We will just say that Humberto was very basic. 

While I was out of town a few weeks ago, Ken text me to tell me he was going to take a personal day.  I knew what that meant.  Poor Humberto was being kicked to the curb. 

Bless his heart, he did not even see it coming.

Just like that, Humberto was gone.  Traded in, all for some hot piece of fiberglass with heated seats and remote start.  I hope Ken can sleep at night. 

The truth is, Ken almost cried when he left him in the parking lot.  Out of all of the cars he has owned, this was his favorite.  Rest in Peace sweet boy, Rest in Peace. 

Move over Humberto, there is a new Sheriff in town!
