The Wrecked Junker

About 5 days before we left for vacation this month to Florida, some kid decided to involve my husband in a wreck.  Shawn was at the light at Burkhardt and Morgan waiting in the left hand turn lane to turn onto Morgan.  Some guy comes out of the Thornton's and hits Shawn and then leaves the scene of the accident.  Thankfully there was a witness who called 911 and gave the police a description of the car that hit him.  They caught him and he was given two tickets.  He didn't have a license and the car wasn't his.  Thankfully, the owner of the car had insurance so we didn't have to pay for anything, well except a new car now.  This car was paid for and it was so nice not having a car payment.  Now, we have another one.  UGH!  We did get a hefty check from the insurance company to use as a down payment on the new car, so that helped bring the payment down a bit.  The only benefit is that we are done with the red junker car and Shawn is driving a newer, nicer car.  I absolutely LOATHED driving the red car.  I would throw the biggest fit when I had to drive it.  The new car is a 2008 Hyundai Sonata, 4 doors, power everything, fully loaded, and has a sun/moon roof.  It's SWEET!  Of course I haven't gotten a chance to take a picture of it yet (however I did find one on the Internet similar to Shawn's (his a spoiler) so I have posted it.)
