Split fingers, loss of sensitivity, and bloody sore!

In more ways than one! The nice chemo side effects are literally splitting my fingers, the pins and needles are worse, and my skin is looking like my dear old Grannies palms and all horribly wrinkled.

In other news my No 1 choice is still there and up for grabs, although there are many newcomers on the view list, all considerably cheaper but lacking in my curbside appeal. Might have to look closely and see if the dash can be made as nice as the “No 1”.

So choice No 1, the 2012 XK

The Cabin

Drop dead gorgeous

This cheap AWD X type sold which hardly surprised me at only $2850 and quite stunning all round.

Firewood collection plowed on during the week with 3 more loads taking me up to 9 for the year and really hardly anywhere left to stack any more so I’m about done.

Test firing of the new fir

Cycling started again and another 65 miles went in the books for this less than stellar year, but anything is better than nothing.

One or two of the prospective purchases have dropped a few dollars during the week. First is a Jag XF which was very cheap at $6000 and is now down at $5500 ???

It’s in CA

Quite a polish,  I’m impressed

I could live with this

This one is well below any list price and would appear to be in an exceptional condition.  On sale very close to the Mexican border in CA one has to wonder if this is a “scam” or a stolen car? Something not quite right here or I’m missing out on a cracking deal.

Side effects today are bloody awful, fingers hurt like hell and my No 1 choice seems to have slipped through my fingers while I’m in waiting mode.

Well, the RR I liked is still available although I must check on all the crazy rules re: doc fees, state sales tax, and anything else they can find to rip you off for doing nothing. Maybe Private sales don’t attract all these fees? I had better find out.

Still available

Well once again I’m surprised having thought my No 1 choice was sold it reappears as if by magic. I can only assume its a selling ploy. Still the best by far in my humble, ever so humble, opinion.

Back again

A  supercharged XF comes along at $6900 and looks like a nice car and is a private sale down in Phoenix. Only thing I don’t like is the bland woodwork and I would have to change the trim to a more featured Burr Walnut.

While looking around one of my earlier choices looked pretty good other than in my brief glance I thought it was a convertible because of the dark blue top! Further inspection is that this is decor only and it has a moon roof. Shows just how dumb you can be …. better buy up Greenland!!! The reason I dismissed it was the “soft top” as the last thing I wanted to be doing was clearing snow everyday off the roof. Still a very nice car with gorgeous wood work, only 49K on the clock and a private cash deal …… worth a second look.

Nice wheels

Super dash

Seem to remember the roof color alternate was all the rage way back when 

Needs that “super mirror” polish

This morning as once again I was trolling the marketplace the No 1 choice has had a price drop from $19,999 down to $18,211 which is good for the buyer (hope its me!)
