It's A Jeep Thing

Meet our latest addition - the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4X4. Since we moved to the country I can't begin to count the times I have wished for and even said out loud "I need a pick-up truck". There is always something big to haul or otherwise move around that is not easily accommodated with a mid-sized SUV or a four door sedan. Not to mention that I never thought I would ever hear myself say "I need a pick-up truck".

At least with this vehicle I will have a 3500 pound towing capacity as well as 4 wheel drive which will come in handy for M’Lady during her wintertime commutes on snowy country roads. Then, of course, there is the roof – which makes this the only 4 door convertible in the world. Everyone should have a convertible at least once in their life and this will be our first. The dogs are going to be ecstatic.

Did I mention that the doors come completely off, the windshield folds down and there are drain plugs in the floor? The finishing touch will be the decal for the windshield, which is installed upside down and says “If you can read this… Roll me over”.

If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand.

Sweetheart - we suffered through our fair share of old, used and inadequate vehicles. Heck, the car we're trading in one this one is 13 years old!

And ask your mom about this – it’s “Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz”. Might as well go for the whole nine yards.

rofl, a mercedes Benz wont fit my 4 kids and my husband! And the van we have is adequate enough, the Lord provided it for us, and I am very sure when it dies, ( may it rest in peace) the Lord Will provide yet another mean of transportation, I was just hopeing it was through my rich unkle! *wink wink*

Although momma love that Janis Joplin number - she does not approve of praying for a vehicle...or material possessions...however, I do believe the Lord will (and does) provide
