The Goat Rides Again

Or does she?

Goat is the name we gave our car that was stolen a year and a half ago. A few days before we left for our holiday, J was getting ready to throw away the key. "Wait," I said. "You never know."

J got a call today saying the police found Goat in Suez.

We don't know what condition the car is in, but it still has its diplomatic plates and these are what we need to hand over to customs when we leave the country in order to avoid heavy penalties.

Praise the Lord, whether she rides or not.

If she does, she just might come back to France with us, carrying all our boxes.

Cool.
The Pontiac GTO was also known as "the goat."

That's amazing! "My son whom I thought was lost has returned to me"!

I'm so relieved that you won't face the penalties for the theft (pretty crazy that you were going to have to in the first place)

I know! It was something we were intent on not thinking about, and now we don't have even the shadow of it hanging over us. A big relief!

Hurray for the numberplates. Car optional - wishing you best of luck for that, too, but that would just be icing on the cake.

Yep. :D I really am hoping she's operational. It will be so much easier with 3 kids.
