Passages.
Our lease on Iggy was scheduled to end in two months. Weirdly enough, we got a barrage of calls from Mercedes Benz Financial a couple years ago about making our lease-end arrangements; turned out to be a random coinkidink of mis-entered phone numbers.  But it got us thinking about it before the last minute, and Eleanor arranged to order a replacement lease before the current (see what I did there?) one ended.

I didn't need to be there, but Iggy is family, so I came over at the end of a fairly brutal workday for the passing of the torch charger.  Here's my last sight of Iggy, freshly shaven as they transferred his hoodplate to the new car:

The new one is virtually identical, only with a lower mileage allowance (we were 18000 short of the three-year estimate) and a correspondingly lower payment going forward:

Life is what happens when you're busy making plans: Weeks before, Eleanor decided that her new ride would be named Ziggy, in honor of David Bowie, who we lost sadly and unexpectedly earlier this year.  The transfer occurred on the day we lost Prince, sadly and unexpectedly, earlier today.

Let's go crazy in his honour:)
