Living Without A Car

It all started, like so many things in life, with an accident.

My husband stopped at a traffic light, and an irresponsible driver who wasn’t keeping their distance slammed into him headfirst. Thank goodness none of the children were in the back seat at the moment, and no one was hurt.

The car, however, was pronounced dead and hauled away to a junk yard. Our only consolation was that we’d postponed some expensive repairs that would have been totally wasted.

All of a sudden, for the first time in many years, we found ourselves without our own set of wheels, and without the prospects of getting enough from the insurance company to enable us to buy another car.
