An Amazing Surprise

As my health slowly improved, my life long hobby and cravings for an old car came back with a vengeance!! For months I trolled kijiji and other car sites looking for what? I wasn’t sure????Just a convertible car that I could take to car shows. Last week Caroline asked me to spend a few days with her in Bedford. On the Wednesday morning I woke up to find an amazing surprise sitting in the driveway. Caroline and Susannah between them bought me a car, Wow what a car, I’d seen it advertised on Kijiji but decided it was too expensive. I have to be careful with my savings incase I require more treatment not covered by PEI health. Having two wonderful daughters is a blessing that can only be describe as a gift from God.

The car is a 1991 Pontiac Firefly LE convertible, quite rare these days and a fun car to drive with its tiny three cylinder engine. I drove it home from Bedford sticking to the back roads, its been a while since I drove such a long distance. It worked great
with good gas mileage and a CD playing Marty Robbins gunfighter songs. I’m still finding it hard to believe its my car!!! but I registered it this morning and installed a nice new license plate. So yes its my very own car, and a beautiful vehicle to take to car shows. One very happy Dad here.

God Bless and keep reading
