When Nellie came into our lives, we didn’t think there was much to change about her. The idea was to scrub up a few things and make memories. But pipes leak, appliances become unreliable, and stuff just downright does not function as it should. So we are in the process of figuring out how to adapt to our situation.
For now, she will stay put in our driveway. We have to take some prehistoric parts out and repair with more modern parts. And she may shed a layer of skin to reveal a sleeker looking monster.
