So Long Chester

Who is Chester? Chester is my first and only car before the recently purchased Honda Accord (still unnamed). My parents bought him for me when I went to college. He is the only car I have ever really driven, and we have been through a lot together. Going to college, first real job, marriages, first wreck, only speeding ticket. While I am super excited about my Accord, it is a little emotional to face a change after so long. My head has already made the change. Only a week or so after the Accord was here, I tried to drive Chester somewhere and by the time I got to the entrance of our neighborhood, I had to turn around because it felt so foreign. My heart will get the idea soon I am sure. It seems like it will have to do sooner rather than later.

Why do I say that?

We took Chester to Brad's parents' house on Friday. Mr. Jack took him to work yesterday and put him out with a For Sale sign. Within the first hour, there was someone interested in purchasing him. Throughout the day, there were others that inquired about him too. It was just Day One and nothing final has come down the pike. It just seems like a little fuel efficient car will go quickly in these days of high gas prices.

It will seem silly but I took pictures with Chester before his departure last Friday. He was my first car.
