Book to Film

Saw a tweet the other day from “Focus Features” about #NationalBookLoversDay with the question – “What is your favorite book to film adaption?” My immediate response was, LOTR, Hobbit, Godfather and The Princess Bride.

But of course I immediately realized that can’t be all. So the search begins.

My Nissan Maxima

September 1999 to August 2020

I dropped it off at Wrench A-Part. This was very difficult. Which I am not totally surprised but yet at the same time I am a little.

The final mileage was 355,700ish – yes, I didn’t get to get to capture the exact mileage 😦 Given all my Odometer posts over the years you’d think I would have captured the final mileage.

I was planning to. But things don’t go as we plan. No, it’s not – “Things Don’t Always Go as Planned”. I am convinced “Things Never Go Exactly as You Plan, Never. Period”. Things Never go Exactly as we plan. But I digress. This is not what I am writing about. That’s another post for another time.

It was time to let go of the Maxima. This was the only new car I have ever bought. This was also the very first car I bought after my daughter was born.
