santa edsel

but so what. It’s Christmas.

Dear Santa:

If I could have one thing from you this year, it would be to finish (as in “Happy Finish”) that dream I had, which featured:

  • a red/white Edsel just like this ^^ at a used car lot.  With the keys handy.
  • Michele Wendling in the shotgun seat (what is it with me, redheads and unfinished (or not based in reality) business)
  • Lorraine avenue in BFE Alaska where the car was parked, but not unoccupied.  (also the same for me and Michele –  parked, but not unoccupied, so to speak.)
  • two sets of fully active 18 year old hormones

If not that, can I get my car fixed before the year is out?

After the jump:  more coolness from Barrett Jackson
