That's right, people. At long last a new Mermaid Mobile is born. AaaaaahAAAAAAh (that's my imitation of angels singing).
After maybe 2 years of whining and hoping and hunting and discussing, yesterday we brought home my baby. A shiny 1999 Chevy Express cargo van.
This is by far the newest vehicle I have ever owned. It has running lights and air bags! Never mind that, CUP HOLDERS and air conditioning! I'm fairly bursting into the nineties here. And see my birthday-ipod radio adapter? Oh, I'll be traveling awesomely this summer alright. You bet.
I might hyperventilate. I don't think I could be more excited.
It really has been like bringing home a baby. OK maybe a new pet. All kinds of new toys and we just want to play with it obsessively. I already have new tires, oil change, a paint touchup pen, washer fluid. We're discussing how to outfit the back for shows... liners, storage. Whew. Barney keeps poking at stuff. I can't wait to clean it. And I'm thinking about painting the mermaid logo on the side really huge. Hee hee.
I have been saving up a pile of bumper stickers in anticipation of this day... I think I took a picture, let's see...
Yeah, just one has made it so far. Yippee!! Mermaid Vans Rule!!
