FROM JEEP TO BETTER JEEP – Marilyn Armstrong

FOWC with Fandango — Turnover

We are both extremely fond of apple turnovers and almost always have a box of the mini-size ones in the house. We have both turned over at least one or many new leaves through our 149 years of life.

Turn over – 1
Turn over 2
Finally, nearly finished.

But the really biggest turnover was swapping out our little Jeep Patriot for our much newer Jeep Renegade. It was the perfect second-hand car, too. Less than 3 years old, just over 20,000 miles on it and perfect for what we needed.

It doesn’t use much gasoline, but big enough for us and three small dogs. And it will drive on pretty much anything!

Ready to go!

        1. So far. But we don’t have kids and we don’t usually eat in the car and we cover the back seat for the dogs, so aside from the usual dust, the car is pretty clean. If it gets bad, we’ll have to get seat covers.

  1. I took “Baby” (my car) to the dealer today for her 60,000 tune up. She had her transmission flushed and a new filter put in there, spark plugs and wires replaced, and all fluid levels checked, oil changed. The mechanic said she looks well, and I should not expect any ugly surprises nor problems. Given that Baby is a 2005 model, 60,000 (she’s actually at 56,700 right now) are very low miles. I told the guy I didn’t anticipate replacing her (ever), and that I planned on driving her until I am told to stop driving. Which may be sooner than later, but I’ll try to stay positive. I remember the day you got your new Jeep. Thought it was very brave of you, but also very wise!

      1. One thing I love about her (because my driveway is a very sharp turn from the alley and my neighbor’s fence is right there) Bella is SHORTER than my Focus was. It’s like she said, “I got this, Martha.” This coming Friday we’re going to the mountains and I’m going to X-country ski on closing day at the ski area. I just love her. ❤

  2. What a cool-looking new car! I wish you both many miles of joy and great adventures in your new Jeep. It is different to see white upholstery though – I’ve only ever seen dark colours before. But then you haven’t got two kids dropping crumbs and spilling drinks over the seats, so I doubt it’ll matter! 🙂
