Long Lived The Kar

Dear KAR,


Since 1998, you have been a constant in the Rosenhagen family. You began your life devoted to your namesake, Mr. Kurt Alan Rosenhagen. Over the years, you began to show your wear and tear. Carting around kids, having mounds of suitcases stuffed in your on-going trunk. Then, on July 28, 2007 you shifted your loyalties and accepted Stephen as a new master.


We thank you for your service. Even on your moodiest of days, you still took us to work. Even though you threatened us often, you only refused to do your work a handful of times.


I apologize for any ill words I may have ever said to you in anger. So your front windows didn’t roll down, that’s okay. You refused to display the majority of the lights on the dash, that’s okay. Sometimes the AC turned on full blast for no reason, that’s okay. We all have our quirks.


It’s a sad day in the Rosenhagen-Hurst households. We knew this time was approaching. However, that doesn’t make it any easier to let you go.



Chelsea, Your Passenger on the Road of Life


-Tonight, in remembrance of The Kar, raise a glass in her honor. She will be missed.

    This raises a profound question I think: where do our beloved vehicles go when they die?

    They go to the dealership to hopefully give daddy a fat wad of cash for his new pristine auto.

    Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment
    form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
