By , January 11, 2018

In early November, we gave up our family car.

In 1994 we decided we needed a 4-wheel drive vehicle for family safety, especially our new baby daughter, Aly. We’d driven her around in front-wheel drive cars for more than a year without accident, but we had some close calls, and worried about the future. On a family trip south, we shopped for and purchased a brand new Jeep Cherokee.

We drove it for 23 years. Often, it was our only vehicle.

Two things have happened lately to change my appearance: I’m growing hair, and wearing corrective lenses.
