My comment about life’s road trips, couldn’t help but resonate in my head for the remainder of the evening yesterday and even as I lay in bed last night. After the girls went to bed, Shawn retreated to his favorite place in the house…the garage to work on what I call ‘the jalopee’. The jalopee is better known as a 1971 Chevelle, which Shawn purchased shortly before he and I meet and had hopes of restoring the car some day. After many years of sitting in either our garage or storage, Shawn’s dream has come true and he has been working on restoring the car for the past couple of years. The car still has a way to go but I can see progress every day. When the ‘jalopee’ is no longer a ‘jalopee’, we look forward to long drives and much enjoyment of the open road.
