But that was a few weeks ago, just past 185,000. Apparently, it was just the timing belt bearings. Although my mechanic couldn't figure it out at first. So I had to go and buy a new car. I got the Subaru Outback, because I've always wanted one and felt somewhat like a poser for the past 10 years driving my Subaru Legacy Wagon. Which wasn't an Outback, but pretended to be one. I did love that car, though.
But in even stranger tides, my sister (who can't have children), just found out she and her husband have won the lottery - they were accepted to adopt. 4 kids. A family. 2 girls, 2 boys, ages 2, 4, 6, and 8. Like going to Costco. "Family? Sure, buy 3 get one free!"
