Here he is, ladies and gentleman!  the pictures you’ve all been waiting for. 

i would like to introduce to you my new friend, Ralph!

the above is him from the front…ish…  (he’s a 1987 Nissan Maxima)

this is him from the back seat:

and this is the special license plate i got for him:

and as you can see by the rust spots on the back end, he is definitely not a native of AZ.  on the contrary, he came from Colorado.  but i love him.

he may live for 5 years, he may live for only 5 days.  only the Lord knows.  but i am thrilled to have him.  what an answer to prayer!

praise God this excitement was able to carry me through 2 and 1/2 hours at the DMV on saturday morning.  yes, 2 and 1/2 hours.  and now i have the official title and registration in my name, a renewed driver’s license – b/c mine had a rather outdated picture (even though it was a great conversation piece – “you had BANGS?!”) and it still said “under 21” in big red letters, which is no longer true.   

AND there was a girl scout troup selling cookies outside the DMV – so as i skipped out of the building, i also came away with 2 boxes of Samoas and 1 box of thin mints.  Mmmmm….  life is good. 

so yes, while the DMV was a lengthy endeavor, i am thrilled to officially have my own car, a special license plate and a stinkin’ good driver’s license picture (if i may say so myself)! 

and now all i have to do is call on the insurance tomorrow!  oh, and get the windows tinted… and the oil changed… and put some air in the tires… and have a CD player put in…  and vacuum it…  lol  oh the joys and thrills of my own car!!!!  the excitement cannot be contained.

  1. Oh wow, when my mom and I went this summer it was sanctifying times at the DMV, but PTL for girl scout cookies. They were selling them at the grocery store the other day and the girls even had a cute song to go with it but I had to walk away and turn them down. 😦 I am very excited though to see how God has really provided for you!
