I have my own car for the first time in my life. Aaron and I owned two cars together, a Volvo for one year back in '05 and then the Subaru Outback we bought to come up here last summer. The Outback has been Aaron's commuting car, and now, as of yesterday afternoon, I have my very own silver Subaru Forester. Tomorrow I'm registering the car, getting plates, and then Midcoast Maine is my oyster. The laundromat, Hannafords, our village store, there'll be no stopping me. Yes, that is the up side of being here for two weeks here with no car: pure joy at the prospect of buying groceries at will.
