Reality sets in

As reality sets in I come to realize a true friend is gone. He left today around 7:30PM in direction CA, and I should only be so lucky to see him again sometime.

Farewell my friend, don't forget your time in Texas, and may your coming years be as painless as the last 3.

Take care of him Byron and he will take care of you.

Re: Reality sets in

I know how you feel Andy. I sold my boat last week and it's the only time I ever had seller's remorse. I was quite sad when it pulled away behind another guy's truck.

Now I get to buy a new toy though

BTW our local VW dealer is bringing used diesels in from out of state and sells them for as much as a new one...

Not changing subjects, but I noticed on the VW web site, that I only saw the diesel for the Toureg. Is VW waiting for the "clean diesel" before offering it again for their lineup? Also, do you think that they will offer it in the Passet again?

Re: Reality sets in

I guess I'll never understand getting so attached to a "thing". I know that I'm the odd man out here though, as I hear about these emotions all of the time. I have owned cars that I've loved. Bikes too. I've owned a LOT of guitars (over 300). But it's the experiences themselves that I hold onto dearly . . . and the people that I shared those experiences with. The "stuff"?, not so much. Food for thought.

I guess maybe I always figure that the new "thing" coming my way was just going to be that much better.

I don't really follow this stuff. I have a friend who work at the dealer and he mentioned to me last week about the used ones and that VW was going to bring in diesels to California eventually...
