I have had a long term relationship that came to an end this evening. This faithful partner was with me over a decade through storms, rain, wind, hail, and even sunshine. Complaints were only occasional and as long as I gave proper attention, faithfulness was shown. Marks of wear and tear were apparent in certain positions relative to my pressure points of relaxation. The depression in the arm rest to the left, the feel of the fabric on the seat, all from years of travel. In total we spend 213000 miles together. Now someone else gets to relax in the place I have occupied for so long. Enjoy the ride. It was pleasant.
