An Automotive Thought

This afternoon I'm dealing with the realization that for every hundred miles we drive in the van, we'll spend $24.45 on the gas, $1.35 on the tires, 42 cents on the oil, and three bucks on the air conditioner.

Anyway, that's about the cost of cool air in our eleven-year-old 15-passenger van, if our mechanic is right.

I'm reminding myself that as long as we're spending less than $400 a month on repairs, we're coming out ahead in the near term.
