Well, we finally did it! Bought a new car. The last 2 years have been a series of regular breakdowns and costly repairs, but we continued to feel it was the right option regarding my 12 year old jalopy. Then the squirrels moved in.
I’ve mentioned I had back to back flu and then strep throat earlier this year. My car didn’t get driven for about 3 weeks. Mamma squirrel built a lovely 3 room nest and had babies during that time, completely destroying the fluid and electrical system of the engine along with removing several important supporting clips and covers. We are still waiting to get a total on the damage for the insurance (thankfully we had coverage) but we also purchased a new vehicle.
Long story to say, we took my new car to Rocky Mountain National park…and I took pictures!
