Buy a car

"Travel" item number one is to buy a car.

When I arrived in Lewiston, the first thing I learned was that to get anywhere you must go up a hill. So walking isn't really an option for me right now. That meant I needed to find a car ASAP. As it turned out, the girl who lives two doors down was selling her car. So this evening at 8 o'clock I ambled down the street and for $400 I acquired a '79 Oldsmobile Cutlass. I was back at HQ with the title within twenty minutes. It's an ugly thing, to be sure, and her dog has totally ripped up the back seat, but it runs and that's the important part.
