Bought a New Car Today...

Today we bought a 2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid. Our financial planner decided that we are spending way too much money on gasoline and needed a new car. Our Bonneville was a gashog, but we loved it. It was almost 5 years old though, with over 150,000 miles on it and on the verge of needing some major repairs, so we decided it is time to make a change. Our car is black with a tan leather interior. Tim looks smashing in it. Meanwhile, I'm still in love with my 5 year old Yukon XL. We're going to keep ahold of it for a long time...I think. It's a gashog BIG TIME, but it can run on ethanol, so I keep telling Tim that it's worth holding onto.
