Perhaps things are beginning to settle down and get back to normal around here, because I actually have a post to present for Sepia Saturday this week. The first time in over a month. This one is actually a re-run, but I went through and cleaned it up a bit and that actually took me longer than writing a whole new post!

I pulled over, and a nice man helped me get the door back on its track, and after that we never opened that sliding door again. I put duct tape across the seam to remind everybody not to open it. My husband at the time, who never did do well with any sort of stress, yelled at me when I got home, for ruining the paint job with duct tape. What paint job? Brother, that is an example of what I was dealing with back then. But the duct tape stayed, and we all crawled through the front passenger door after that to reach the back seats.
Are you wondering about the black bra? It was the only ornamental piece on this vehicle. My ex must have found it in the markdown basket at Knehcts Auto Parts, most likely overdrawing our checking account in the process. The bra went across the front, with openings for the headlights. I remember being in staff meeting at the church where I was the secretary, asking in all sincerity the other staff members (who were all guys), whether or not you could run a black bra through a car wash. They cracked up! Then I realized how that had sounded and got so embarrassed.
Looking at the pictures of does bring back some good memories though. We took the kids to a lot of fun places in that old thing.
