This is the car Shirl brought home from her part-time job (at Willis Auto Campus) for my dad to peruse and possibly purchase. He LOVED it. Mom wanted a car a little smaller than her '96 Lincoln Town Car, and this was 2 inches wider.
Below is the car my dad ended up buying. It's a Saturn Vue, and looks really similar to the car Alex's girlfriend has (Allison), including the color.
Yes, in the picture below, there are three 'orphan' heads cuddling on the couch Friday evening. Georgey was trying to clean Gracie's ears and Patrick was just joining in on the body heat. A few minutes later Patrick rolled onto his back, and then slipped off the couch (dad was quick enough to catch him and turn him right side up, though).
