replacing rhonda.

So this is Jonathan, not Tiffany as is usually the case around here. Just thought I'd point that out before I begin, now on with it...

I'm one of those weird people that names inanimate objects that happen to fall into my possession. I've got a wall of guitars behind me all named things starting with the letter 'E' for some reason. I had a little old beat up red Honda Civic hatchback that I adoringly referred to as Edna, and most recently a white 1991 Honda Accord my wife bestowed the name Rhonda upon. It was fun, we called it 'Rhonda the Honda'. Silly, I know.

Well for those that don't know, last October, a sixteen year old kid that had been driving for only two weeks decided to broadside poor Rhonda with his full-size Nissan Titan truck. And after a bewildering 180o spin through the street, over the curb, and into someone's yard Rhonda's time had come to an end and the endless search for a replacement began.

Well, not so endless.

*cue dramatic music and awesome announcer voice*

It is with great pleasure that we introduce to you our new, yet-to-be-named, 1996 Honda Accord LX.


  1. Ummm...Drocca has a name, thank-you-very-much.

    And thank you for updating the blog, husby! :)

  2. about a year ago we bought a 94 Accord for our second car. Ours has 215,000 miles and is running like a champ, how many miles are on that 96?

  3. There were 207k miles on it when we got it. It definitely runs like a champ, we've already taken 3+ trips in it around Tennessee with no problems. Love it!
