This is some of the damage sustained during the storm yesterday afternoon. I was very fortunate nothing hit the truck, nor did the house seem to be damaged at all even though the tree branch fell right next to it. (Click on a picture to enlarge it.)
This is the 2006 Toyota Highlander I bought this morning, and I know I am going to love it! The dealer is Wappingers Falls Toyota on Rt. 9 in Wappingers Falls, NY, and the salesman is M.J. Herring. The entire experience was very positive and so unlike the usual dealings with car dealerships. I was treated with courtesy and respect by everyone I came in contact with, and at no time did I feel pressured. If I am ever in the market for another car, new or used, I will go to this dealership, and I recommend it without hesitation.
As for the Highlander, it is so easy to maneuver and while I miss the truck I am happy to be in the Toyota – I will be more than happy at the gas pump! There is adequate cargo space for Lady and all my camping gear, and I’m even thinking about a small trailer in the future. No hurry on that however.
Some days go very well and then there are those that don’t go so well – they make you appreciate the good days. This was one of the very good days.
