Horses don't throw fanbelts. Horses don't need transmission fluid or coolant. Horses don't need new radiators. Yea, I want a horse.
Of course, horses leave messes. A horse makes a 180-mile trip a month-long adventure instead of a day trip. Horses bite. I fell off a horse once.
I've never fallen off my car.
I guess technology is progress and I like my van.
Wendy took my van to Kansas City because her car is in the shop getting a new radiator. Today, as Wendy was leaving Wal-Mart, the fan belt popped off. Some little part has to be replaced. Thankfully, my sister knows how to do that and it's not an expensive part.
I do thank God that it came off in the Wal-Mart parking lot and not on I-80 somewhere in the middle of Iowa when she was alone with a 2.5 year old.
Someday I may own a horse, but I guess cars and vans are good. I know God is good.
