Finally…

After looking at different vans and dealing with car salesmen Sunday and Monday (and getting a little fed up with the whole process), JoAnn looked online and we went to Puyallup to look at a van after work. Turned out that the van had already been sold, but this dealership was part of a group,…

Used car salesmen…

And here I thought the stereotypical used car salesmen tactics might be a thing of the past. Call it naiveté, but we’ve dealt with Saturns and a particular salesman for so long that we were not accustomed to how the rest do it. But boy did we find out. All the old tricks: high initial…

Sybil at the Off-Leash Park

So I finally got Sybil out to the Steilacoom Off-Leash Dog Park this morning…for exercise, to see how she liked it, and to hopefully get her trained better for long car rides (like Cannon Beach at the end of summer). She did awesome. No issues of getting sick in the car (although she didn’t eat…
