Betty Ford

I once owned a two door Ford Escape.
It was the Sport Edition. 
I named her Black Betty Ford. 
It was fitting.

Black Betty Ford did not affect as many human lives as Real Betty Ford,
but she did touch the lives of at least 4 deer,
a handful of squirrels
and at least one porcupine.

This is the day I bought her.

That's Wayne. He sold me the car. He gave me a free hat.

We had to take the back roads home since I didn't know how to drive a stick yet.

She wasn't a lady.
But she was the first car I ever purchased on my own.
So she was my first lady.

Black Betty Ford was totaled many moons ago
and now, so goes part of her namesake.
May they both rest in peace.
