Extra, Extra....Read All About It!

So for a brief 2-3 days Austin and I were talking a lot about the "Cash for Clunkers" program the federal government it offering. During that time we thought it might be a good idea to have a nice little commuter car we can easily travel to Montana in and save money on gas. So Austin went to a couple of dealerships after work to test drive a couple of cars we were thinking about. When he was walking into Tony Divino a lady followed him in. After he started talking with a salesman she approached them and asked if she could follow them around. The next morning we had several people contact us about Austin being in the paper. Then the next day at church everyone seemed to know he had been at Tony Divino's. I will admit I was surprised at how many people actually read that much of the newsapaper. I, myself usually skim the front page for any catchy titles, find the ads looking for sales and coupons, and on Sundays will look in the life section to see who got married....but that is the extent of my newspaper reading.

We finally decided that it was just not a deal we were interested in making....kind of seemed like one of those "too good to be true" weird things you think you just can't pass up, but at the same time can't talk yourself completely into. After watching some of the Glenn Beck show with Scott (Austin's dad) we definitely felt better about our decision. Scott has always told Austin, "If it's a good deal today, it'll be a good deal tomorrow." And coincidentally the money for the program ran out.....good deal? You decide.
