How sweet it is!

How cool is that???? We were so tired of the electric golf cart that was always losing its charge. The last time it happened to me I parked it and stormed into the house with fire in my eyes (not really, I am being dramatic) and barked to Joe 'I AM SO D*#%ED TIRED OF THAT GOLF CART I COULD SPIT!" I just left it there never to be ridden again by me. Well, that isn't exactly true. I did ride it a couple more times but the entire time I rode it I didn't stop until I was back at the porch parking it.

Last Friday Joe called me and asked me to meet him in Lone Oak at the golf cart store. He had found what he thought would be a perfect little number for us. After I finished at my wonderful Sleep Source (my best friends now!) I stopped by to take a gander at what he was talking about. It was cute. Really cute. It was gas, it was red and it was EXPENSIVE! But the main thing that I didn't like was that it was too small. I wanted to be able to take as many of my grandbabies with me when we go for fun golf cart rides. After all, someday they will be a lot bigger than they are now. I know I know....I can't believe it either but we have to keep it real right?

After the nice salesman (Royce) heard more of what we really wanted we wandered outside to look at some more. We definitely wanted gas. No more electric for us! He showed us one that was a one owner from a couple that lived locally and used as an actual golf cart to play golf! Imagine that. It had a good price but it still wasn't big enough for me. Royce went on to say that a back seat could be added for X amount of money. I then asked him about the small tear in the seat and he quickly told me that he could recover that for a minimal amount of money. What you see is what we ended up with. I could not believe it when I saw it. Everything about it is exactly what I wanted. I can't wait to take it down the road this weekend with camera in hand.

Now all I need are my grandbabies to come see us. Heck, I can't even get Beth to bring Abby and Leah to see us. I don't know what I'm going to do! But, until then we will have a lot of fun on this ride without having to worry about the batteries dying.

Anyone want to buy a used golf cart???

Congrats on your purchase! It is sure to bring you and your family hours of fun! I want a 4x4 one for our farm! Gas off course.

THAT is super cute! I would love one just like that... but I don't know what I'd use it for!

I think you should paint it pink, get a pink and white striped canvas top and put some cowgirl fringe on it! Elvis did.

We just got a golf cart 2 years ago for golf....but then Scott quit playing and we just drive it around the neighborhood...right now its in storage for the winter and Scott's parents house.
We love it though.

I like it!
I think you should drive it to work to show it off.

Uh, Bill....that might take a little too long to drive 20 miles to work in a golf cart. But I might have to try it!
