In other news, we got the bad news that our beloved van (aka: Buzz Greenvan, because of its high tech--in the late 90s!--Infinity Sound System) needed a new transmission. Sadly, this meant it was time to officially retire my first, and only, new car.
And for the next couple of years, it became Kid #5's primary mode of transportation to and from his job as a rowing coach.
In January of 2022, it foiled a would-be car thief by forcing him to trash the steering column so badly that Buzz could only drive straight ahead...into our Highlander. Not sure if this was an act of sibling rivalry or not, but still.
