The Money Pit

Well, the cute Westfalia has a name: "Rosalita."

She is the colour of dark red wine and is turning out to have somewhat of a fiery temper. Fiery in the sense that the heating won't turn off and the AC has stopped working. She also completely lost her head recently. Actually her cylinder heads. So they needed to be replaced and the last bill from the auto mechanic was around $4,200.

She has occasional outbursts. For no reason, she'll just send a little 2-syllable chirp, like a doorbell: "ding-ding". I think she's just saying hello, but Jack is considering having the alarm system worked over. I think that we should just let her chirp across the country, and maybe she'll stop if she feels like she's getting enough attention.

Rosalita is adorable, but she is also high maintenance.
