The Departure of Super-Beast



Some of you may remember when that loveable joke-ster, friend, and loyal companion Super-Beast entered our family unit last year. Well, it pains me to say it, but on Saturday, Super-Beast left our family to go take care of an 18 year-old community college student. I will miss the old radio that only got one channel, the toy gorilla that was somehow magically affixed to the dash board that won't come off no matter what, and the sound it made in the morning since the muffler rusted off.

However, this is not meant to be some sort of mopey, dreary, mourn-fest for what was and what might have been. No, this is a great day, because today I introduce to you, Son of Super-Beast. Son of Super-Beast is a 1995 Nissan pickup with 4wd and fuel-injection with almost no rust herpes. We've already been driving SSB around in the snow and been having a great time. SSB still isn't pretty, but follows his father's motto of 'git er done'.

Hi Nicole! I've been following your blog for a while but I guess I never wrote a comment and told you that I was! I thought I did. It's not the first time I've done that. :) I'm glad you found mine!

I do have a little boy and he is so fun. He keeps me laughing and busy.

I love looking at your blog and seeing what you're up to these days. I love what you did with your house. It looks great! And I love hearing about the travel you do. So jealous! :)

Rust herpes. Gross.

This post made me laugh! WE miss you guys too! We'll have to get together before we move in June when JOn graduates medical school. What is your schedule like?
