Say goodbye to the new toy I wanted....

So most of ya that snoop on my page know I ride.

I've been eyeing a new bike for a few years, but the cheapo bastard side of me refuses to spend money.

....internal compromise: I'll pay off my car, then defer that money into a new bike....

 

Guess what happens....

 

My darling beast of a daughter's car took a big ole' ***t, while driving down to Ky. I just made her an AU on two of mine, so she's covered on repairs...

 

BUT.....

 

Now I know it's going to be me taking on another car payment to keep her safe...she's a FT student, working on Bio/Chem post graduate, so she's broke, even with her "on the campus" job stipend....crud.

 

I think she'll have to take care of dear ole' Ma and Pa, when we're old, and decrepid...just as a payback.:smileywink:

 

Now I'm vented, and content...where's my beer?
