I go outside to have a smoke and I find myself just staring at my Sky. I admire the curves and the angles of this car. My Sky is almost 8 months old and I have lost none of the perm -a-grin that I had the first time I saw it. Kind of hypnotic.

I swore I wasn't going to wash it Saturday ... too cold. But at about 11am I saw it was about 55 degrees, and not raining, so out I went. My husband, who had been outside all morning, already had the hose hooked up for me. He knows me and my sickness all too well.

My S.O. and I work at the same school. I guess people keep asking her if she's gotten to drive it. After hearing the answer is no, I get the dumbfounded stares reeking of, "you meanie...you won't let her drive it???"

That was 12/17/06

I've now owned the car for 4 months, 16 days, and just passed off the keys for the very first time. It's lawn day for me...I'm not using it. I keep thinking I should feel proud of myself for sharing so well (finally)...but alas...

Now that you have gotten that out of the way... So how many times did you look down the street for your Sky's return?

Let me tell you my version of your story:

First off you have to know I bought the Sky for my wife's Birthday, but I'm the one putting all the miles on it.

My wife's sister is coming into town for the weekend and heading over to her Mom's house. My Wife's plan was to loan her sister our daily driver Camery and my wife would follow down later in the day in her Sky. So I wash it all up and park it at the end of the drive so she is all set. Then being the "sharing" man I am, I tell her to offer it to her sister to drive to her Mom's house. What was I thinking, an hour down I-95 with all those trucks and Friday commuters rushing to get home. OMG - I was pacing waiting for that arrival phone call.

Well, let it be known that I'm a caring and sharing man; but next time I will make sure that I'm got two down the Ol'pipes to smooth over my nerves.

Bottom line, I can relate.

Ok, since your have put most of the miles on "her sky" doing your "testing" and such, maybe you should offer to buy her a new one for this birthday since she was nice enough to let you use the "old one" for testing.

Regret that there is not enough room in the garage and I'm not moving my car out ('37 Buick two door convertible). So maybe it's time to buy a bigger house with a three car garage...hummm

Bumping this up to the top of the stack now that we have a lot more members out there. I can't believe you guys have lost your creative touch.

Please don't judge too harshly. Mom is quite aware of the shame she has brought to the family.
Well timed bump! This afternoon I sent flash drives for Mother's Day to my sister and my mother with pics and videos of my nephew and my new Sky!
