So Long, Farewell

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu, 1994 Buick Skylark. You were the first car I actually owned, and the most comfortable car I've owned since. I don't know if you'll ever read this, but I wrote you this song to the tune of Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks. If you don't know the tune, the video will help you.

Goodbye to you, my trusted car.
I've driven you around so very far.
Together we saw Disney Land.
Went to college, high school, and
Junior high when times seemed grand.

Goodbye my friend, it's hard to sell,
but that's what happens. So, I'll say farewell.
Buicks don't pass 100K.
Three months you sat in the driveway,
Sold you, now you've gone away.

We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
Once you were my Grandma's,
But I sold you to Santa Claus.



The Buick took us on our "Honeymoon".
Grace "driving" the BuickThe Buick with 2 flat tiresGoodbye Buick, I hope Santa Claus's niece treats you well. Love,

Dan

Wow- I didn't know you had had that car so long! But how lucky that you sold it so quickly!

It's hard to say goodbye to an old friend.But we all must move on. At least you have good memories.Ü

Cool post, Dan. I sang the song in my head to the music on the vid.
So are you getting something new? Next post, maybe? :-)

Nope, nothing new. We're just divesting ourselves of excess.
