growing up...

this is a 1967 dodge polora. on saturday evening we spotted this beauty with a "for sale" sign it its window. nathaniel immediately decided it was the car for him. on sunday afternoon we test drove it and spoke with the owner about arranging for a safety inspection. kelly was going to pick it up on monday afternoon and take it to our mechanic for a thorough once over. at 6:00 a.m. on monday morning our phone rang...the owner had sold the polara for $1800 cash the night before.

for 36 hours, nathaniel had a beautiful dream car. dealing with disappointment is a big part of growing up. in two days, nathaniel aged years and years.

Oh, the poor guy. Well, when one door closes another will open...hopefully something he will love even more.
