End of the road

Yesterday was Katie's last day with us.  This morning we drove the long road back to her owner to drop her off.  And she's for sale.

Yup, poor Katie not only had to spend the last few months as a step-child, now she's being chucked out of her regular home too!  As we say in Afrikaans, "arme ding...."  (that's the trouble with naming your Landies and buying into their personalities)

She had her fair share of adventures as part of our household.  She went to some interesting places:

She gave us some big frights - the latest being a true near-death experience thanks to a sudden lack of brakes.

She caused us headaches - repairs, repairs, repairs... But when she went, she went well, with power, at a decent speed - and with carpets! (quite the Landy novelty, that)

We had hoped to buy her, but circumstances simply didn't play along.

We'll miss having her around.  It's been quite the ride.
