To Infiniti..and Beyond!

This new will surprise many of you...we are no longer a Subaru family. Nothing against subaru..we still love them and will probably always miss them. But every 3 years..I get an itch. I think it is genetic. I find myself being drawn to car lots and websites..turns schmerns. So..without further ado..my new baby..2007 Infiniti FX35
It is a beast. And..oddly only 1/2 second slower in 0-60 from my turbo car! VERY fast, sports suspension, 20 inch wheels, nav system, memory seats, lane departure, automatic cruise control, blue tooth..you name..it has it. and it drives like a sports car..only..don't get in my way. She is a wide one..
But what might surprise even more of you..is this...
Yes..you are seeing correctly. Jason's car is not only for sale..but has sold! He decided he wanted some extra cash to play in the stock market with so he can buy his new Porsche. So he is looking for an older model convertible to tool around in while he plays with the cash. Trust me..my jaw was on the floor when this plan was hatched as well.
So for the first time in 5 years, we don't own a Subaru. But the greyhounds won't mind. ;-)
We still have Henry..going on 7 weeks. Not exactly sure what is going on there, but just a reminder of how stinking cute he is..
But..not the brightest bulb.
The weather has cooled off and everyone is enjoying the yard.
We are watching Amy for the weekend..she enjoys the big yard too.
We had some visitors this fall..they started out small and just seemed to 'sit' on my parsley
When you poked at them..they did this..
They got bigger
And my parsley got smaller
I found out they are the larval form of the Black Swallowtail butterfly. So i patiently waited for them to form a cocoon so I could see them become beautiful butterflies. Repayment for my parsley, I say! But then one more I went to check on them..and there was nothing left but sticks. Not a green leaf to be found and not a worm to be found. Where did they go? No way they became butterflies over night! They crawled away. But to where? Very weird. I may plant parsley next year just to see if more come.
Oh..and I got my identity stolen this week. Beware of paypal! and check your trash folders in your email. My 'thief' set the filter to send all their emails and paypal emails to the trash folder so they could find them but I didn't. Then had some fun with my credit card! Luckily, all passwords are changed, cards are cancelled and fraud investigations are underway. I had a few choice words for them.

Congrats on the FX35. The kids travel in style (and more space). You swap cars about as fast as I turn around company cars :) That sucks about the identity theft. Guess honest work is just too hard for some folks.

Nice car!

Noo, you cant sell a Subaru for a Porsche, Subaru's are my ultimate favorite car (apart from lotus's) we had a 2003 porsche but brought a new 08 model last year, I don't really like them (my mum's partners car) all hail the subaru!!

I'm excited to hear how you like your new ride. I know we both like to drive fast and it really is the one thing that is holding me back from buying a "dog car."

Let me know how everyone fits in and how it takes off at the line.
