Rocco is no longer with us

If you are wondering who Rocco is then we must not be very good friends. But in case we are good friends and your world just doesn't revolve around me anymore I will fill you in. Rocco was the name of my Honda Civic that I have driven for the last seven years. I loved Rocco and we had a great 112,000 miles together, but I just felt like it was time to end our relationship. Actually it was partly his fault since his exhaust manifold cracked and it was going to cost 1500 dollars to fix. Here is a picture of my new friend Stanley.

I love my new car and it is tons of fun to drive. Stanley is also automatic which means it is much easier to talk on my phone and eat while I drive...just kidding who would do that?

First Rocco, now Stanley! I had a companion who named her clothes, but I had NO IDEA you named your car...What?
Jen said she had a blast with you at Thanksgiving, I was totally jealous!!!

Very nice ASH! Getting a new car is always sooo fun!!! You think you can change the tire on Stanley as easy as Rocco?

Steph- I loved the office reference
Jessica - I wish you had been able to come to Bakersfield we had a great time
Annalise - I might be coming up next weekend but not in Stanley. I am going to catch a ride with my friend Jeff. Can I still call you?
Nicole - We should meet up sometime and take pictures with our matching cars
Lisa - Only if I am wearing a white shirt and light tan pants.

grandmaspandas died, and so I'm rebuilding it from scratch. If you've got time to create a logo I'd love to use it on all the pages.

I'm not too picky about what it is as long as it's square.

Take care!

What a proud owner you are! I love the fact that my science teacher daughter has an "Element" as her car, "silver" too> Did they offer the colors titanium, copper, or zinc too?

it's sad to see Rocco go, Stanley looks like a nice car. I hope he treats you well. we still have the Bogie, but if we can sell it we will be a one car family soon.

Is Stanley short for "Stanley Steamer"?
