The New Toy

French racing blue is one of my favorite colors. I wish I had a motorcycle in that shade of blue, but since I can’t afford something that extravagant and, since I actually needed a ‘work horse’ of sorts, this is the compromise I came up with.

golf cart OCT 2018

It’s a 2013 Yamaha Golf Cart. Steve worked out, what I feel, is a really good deal on it from one of our local merchants. God is good, as it also has a limited warranty, which is unusual for something used. It also was sold with the windshield, roof, lift kit, large tires, etc. All these items are extras at most dealerships. Plus, I know that these folks have checked it over carefully for any foreseeable problems and I can yell at them if they didn’t do their job. giggle (Just kidding. Wouldn’t do that.) Steve and I have spent ages pricing used and new this and used and new that. Nothing looked like a bargain. And even the used whatever would be pricey with no warranty or extras! I had to be sure that what we bought wouldn’t be more work for Steve, you know. It has to be reliable. After months of prayer and searching, God showed me this little number. I still pray I haven’t been foolish and thank Him for His guidance.

This morning I was able to put ‘Ol Blue through it’s paces. My goodness it’s hot and humid too because of Tropical Storm Michael heading this way. Sure hope the storm brings rain. We need it. So far, I can safely say ‘Ol Blue has passed with flying colors. I’ve picked up cut and fallen limbs from around the acreage. Then, I pulled up all those weeds and old flowers from the flower bed. Loaded up ‘Ol Blue to the hilt too, then put the yard dregs alongside the gun range. It mulches the area while providing cover for any little critters, especially rabbits, that may need a home this winter. Just doing my part. Doesn’t hurt that they’re tasty too. lol

Oh, and I’m asking for prayers please, dear Saints. Steve is suddenly suffering from heart palpitations, night sweats, and other symptoms. He’s gone to the regular doctor and there’s a stress test scheduled for this Friday (the 12th). Then, of course, there will be followups and lord only knows what else. Please pray for good results, the doctors to be guided and for me to have the courage to carry on no matter the outcome in Christ’s name. Thanks heaps. Y’all mean more to me than words can express.

So that’s the new “toy”. I hope everyone’s day is restful, blessed, and full of love.

    1. Thank you, thank you Linda! ❤ You’re a true friend too.
      LOL about the sidecar. Hadn’t thought of that. For now the golf cart is more practical. This yard can be a pill on the upkeep. Love to you all! 🙂


  1. I love Ol Blue and am so jealous, but so happy for you. I know it will make lots of things so much easier. I certainly will be praying for Steve and the outcome of tests, etc. Keep us posted please.

    1. I just pray ‘Ol Blue doesn’t turn into ‘Ol Kablooey. LOL Keeping up this acreage can be very time consuming and tiring. So far, it’s been a great asset. Love to you and Jim! ❤ 🙂
