My Baby is Growing Up

What you see below are actual, unretouched photos that I took myself, mere moments apart, from the driver's seat of my 2003 Honda Civic last night:

That's right, she's just crossed over to 100,000 miles! (Also notice, kids, that I came to a full stop before attempting to take these photographs). If you've been the owner of a Honda automobile, then you know that this mileage is barely adolescence in the life cycle of the car. I finished paying this car off a few months ago, and have been doing all the recommended maintenance, so it should continue to be safe and reliable for a very long time.

In other news my daughter, age 24, is living in her own apartment, and doing really well for herself. After a bit of a slow start, she is now exhibiting more responsible behavior and making wise choices that reflect a better understanding of how to achieve her long-term goals.


  1. Does she need a roommate? Maybe some of that would rub off on my 22-year-old daughter. :o)

  2. It's funny that you mention a roommate. It was actually a roommate skipping out on her that left her in a bad situation fairly recently. But how she handled the whole thing was quite impressive, and further evidence to me of just how much she is finally starting to "get it".

    I'm sure yours will start to come around soon enough. If she's like mine, she has to learn everything the hard way, and find out things for herself.
