Rest in Pieces

Lois died.

Remember Lois?

A short synopsis of her death (in Hyatt's words):

"She overheated on the way to Dookie. Cracked the headgasket which ruined the aluminum block. She was towed to Wallan, stripped of her registration and is now sitting in the junkyard."

We got a refund on the remainder of her registration (whoo hoo for ~ $250) but unfortunately we won't be able to re-sell her in December which leaves us out $1000. Such is life and sometimes life sucks.

Most importantly, we're on foot. Thank goodness we live in the city and not 2 hours away. We can still take the trams or walk to the few destinations we visit.

A short obituary by me:
Lois, you will not be forgotten. We will miss your squeaky fanbelt, broken backseat window and shoddy paint job. May you be reincarnated as a shiny, black Chevrolet Corvette.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations in the name of the Lois Frobose Memorial Scholarship for American-Australian Fulbright Recipients.

Until tomorrow,

  1. Love it! Your adventures make me giggle, but I still wish I could be back over there. Have fun!

  2. Thanks - We're trying to have as much fun as we can before we come back in 2 months!
