a bug’s life – chapter 2

4 06 2008

Blue VW BeetleThere has been a transfer of ownership of a family entity. This ‘thing’ has been around for a while, and has seen the far reaches of our country. No, I’m not talking about a person or pet, but rather a bug – a Volkswagen Beetle. It’s not a new car. It’s famous, however. You see, it is the same Bug that my sister-in-law Mary Gillen drove around the country a few years ago to celebrate her 50th birthday. Mary is starting a new chapter of her life, having now left the Commonwealth of Virginia and heading back out on the road for another ‘excellent adventure’ with Doug & Walter (Walter is a black lab – Doug is not).

the bug from spaceWhen friends learn that Mary has left for another journey, they usually ask “in the bug?”. When we tell them no, they grow very concerned about the bug’s safety without Mary’s guard. Rest assured, all – the bug is still in the family. We will always think of Mary when we drive her our bug.
