got a phonecall over the weekend and my husband's sister is going to give us a 2000 Olsmobile Silhouette Mini Van...our truck is broken so this will be a real blessing for me to be able to haul some stuff . All we have to do is pay for the reg, license and ins and go 5 hour drive to Toledo to pick it up..

My son is good at repairs which is good as it has a glitch in the side door and drivers window as well as a few dents in a fender where she it a mailbox..but other than that it is in good condition.

I know I can haul front end loader loads of mulch and stuff like the pick up..but I can haul things like lumber, and bags of things and trees and plants and stuff..so it will be helpful, also gets better milage than our car which is a gas hog.

all of our adult lives our family has been giving and receiving vehicles..we have given away 3 cars and this will be the third or fourth we have received..just kinda the nature of things around here, but this was highly unexpected..
