Journey to get my Car...

Mom driving me to the dealership to pick up my car.

My car safe and sound at the dealership.

My car sitting at home in my driveway.  Yay!!!!!  I thought I would never see this car again!


Joyce coming out to congratulate me on getting my car back.  She's such a sweetheart.

Congrats!

Joyce looks so different to how I imagined her.

Sharyna said...

Funny, that's just how I imagined Joyce looking! I didn't picture your car looking like that though. I expected something older and grey. I don't know why. lol

Congratulations!! I'm glad you posted a pic of Joyce, she is just how I pictured her. I'm so happy for you!

Jbeeky said...

I pictured her looking a bit younger with dark hair and grainy skin. I really don't know why? Conrats Andrew!

Its nice to see pictures of your mom and your friends...How bout a picture of Ferret and Rosa...Your car looks really good...Nice and clean...

Rhette said...

Wow Andrew, it's so nice to see so many people involved in recovering your car ... great!

Your Mom -- such a "sweetheart" I know this must be a great day for you & those who helped.

My prayers are with Joyce, I hope she feels better. We've all said it before but she is lucky to have you as a true friend!

I wish you ALL the best -- happy driving :)

Congrats on getting your "other baby" back! Now young man I hope you have the car locked - it looked like a window was slightly open from one of your pictures.

Joyce looks like such a nice lady. It is sad the way that she is suffering. I pray that she finds something that helps her.

glittermom said...

we didn't hear anything about the car...where did they find it and was anything damaged? wonder why they kept the keys...

simonsays said...

Yea!!!! I am SO happy for you!!!!

That's wonderful news, drive safely!!

Cheryl said...

Finally! I'm so happy for you. Where did you go to first? You must feel so free.

It was great to see a picture of Joyce. In my mind she was much younger and had long straight hair. Come to think of it, that's how I think of Rachael too. Anyway, it's good to put a picture to a name. Is Joyce doing OK?

Summer said...

I'm so happy for you my dear friend! I can't express it! I love the pictures of Joyce and your Mom. This makes me feel really good. Renews my little faith!

C.A. said...

Andrew...THANK YOU for posting those pictures! It's so very nice to see Joyce and your car back where it belongs. I love seeing your pictures of your Mom, too!

What a happy day for you!

Tory said...

Andrew, I am a devoted reader of your blog so please warn me if you go "invitation only" and please please include me. My older brother struggled for years with bipolar disease and alcoholism and died on Halloween of a heart attack at 45 years old. Reading about your day to day, the battle you are fighting--and winning--makes me feel better...makes missing him not so painful. (By the way, his heart attack was related to inherited blood pressure issues and had nothing to do with his other illness.) Keep up the good work and I hope the Vocat Rehab appt. goes well. You'll be fine! Your friend, J.R.

way to go, Andrew!

have a great day tomorrow at voc.rehab.

Barb said...

I am so happy for you Andrew!!!

Rhette said...

Andrew,
I forgot to ask, does Maggie like to go for rides in the car? Dogs usually love it :)

Darlene said...

This is such good news! I'm so glad your car showed up.

Tee said...

GREAT NEWS!!!!! That is a wonderful photo--the one of YOUR car in YOUR driveway! Just make sure you keep it locked and the key in your pocket. :-) You Mom was so sweet to take you to pick it up. So nice of Joyce to join the excitement of you getting it back. Where was Rosa? Hope your appointment at the vocational rehab place goes well. GREAT DAY!!! Those are the kind of days we like, right?

amypalko said...

You have so many comments already, but I thought I'd add mine to the chorus! I'm so happy for you that you've got your lovely shiny car back. I can almost hear your joy in your words as I read them! Enjoy it, take a drive and go find those photo opportunities :-)

Welcome home, Cute Car. Joyce is very pretty. Nice hair. Naturally curly, I bet.

Mike said...

WooHoo! Enjoy having your car back!

Is your meeting today? I hope it goes well!

C. R. Morris said...

Wow! Congratulations on getting your car back! Joyce looks very different than the people in my head painted her to look... I think I haven't paid attention very well. I thought she was your age! *blush* I never pay attention. *sigh*

John Noble said...
