11:40 p.m……Remember when I posted about Robert Matthew “Matt” McDowell, the man from Deer Park who died in Iraq? He died April 1. I posted a picture Friday of a monument to veterans, with his name on it. I was just reading the Deer Park newspaper, and saw that his step-brother, Sean Patrick Callahan, age 24, died May 25 of Muscular Distrophy. That poor family has had more than its fair share of grief this year.
Update 9:25 p.m….There’s an interesting feature on this car to prevent accidentally putting the top down while driving. You have to have the parking brake on to operate the control for the convertible top.
Soon as she gets the car, she’s going to pick up Candice and Jordan, and go cruising for guys.
Change in plans…..The Mustang she originally looked at was already sold, but we already had another in mind. It is one year older, and is a convertible. This is it:
It rides really well. Steve went with her to test drive it. It has only had one owner, and it was regularly serviced at a Ford dealership in San Antonio. It was a special order when it was sold. It is a 2002. The owner had it for 5 years and 5 months before it was sold. It is in excellent shape. They checked everything on it, and Steve checked under the hood both before and after they drove it.
We’re just waiting on the loan approval.
The family that owns this car company is a race car family. They are regulars at Houston Raceway Park.
