Milestones (of a sort)

May 21, 2012

I completely neglected to report on two important milestones, so let me tell you about them now.

Last week I passed a quarter of a million miles on the Honda Civic. I knew I was getting close, but for some reason I switched to the trip odometer and missed the actual event.  Except for the times when the car was stolen, those are all miles driven by me or Lauren.

I also forgot to mention that I’d been at Lincoln Lutheran for 10 years. I missed that one by almost exactly a year. As my good friend Ferris once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

I guess we’ll see if the Civic makes it to 300,000 and if I make it to 13.

    Congratulations on such longevity! I was just wondering about the life expectancy of my truck. I hope it will last at least as long as your car has.

    And thanks for getting *chicka chickahhhhh* stuck in my head. (Though I do have to say, it’s a nice picker-upper to listen to it in the morning.)

      I saw a commercial once that said that 80% off all Hondas are still on the road 20 years after they are purchased. I found that hard to believe and pictured some road out in the desert somewhere lined with mile upon mile of Hondas.

    Congratulations!! Dad had a van that he coaxed to 330,000. I hope your Honda makes it past that!!

    Except for the times the car was stolen? How many times did that happen? Sounds like there’s a good story waiting to be told.
