Riding off into the sunset without me.

Owning a house on a river can be tough. Especially when the location of the house is in the worst rating flood zone. And, thanks to the U.S. Congress, flood insurance rates are on the rise. Even though President Obama signed into law the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014, my insurance rate still may double, resulting in a large chunk of change. So, what does an aging baby boomer do when she needs to come up with another $500 plus each month? Yeah, I did think of that but my new hip limits the positions I can sit, lie, or straddle in. So, I sold my pony. No more car payment, no more car insurance or car repairs, but, sigh, no more Mustang.

Bye, bye pony!

One must do what needs to be done to survive. Going without a car may seem like a crazy idea but corners needed to be cut. On the up side, I met some great people who purchased my pony. The folks at City Motor Group took good care of me. If you need to sell a car, or are looking to buy one, I have complete confidence in their integrity.

As for me, I’ll be spending more time on my river, with my ducks. Blessed be :}

 

About tinthia

Wondering, searching, and wandering, I'm a single mother with a desire to get it right in my lifetime. The flow of the river feeds my inner goddess and fuels my soul. Blessed be. :}
