Progress is being made on the home improvements, and that includes installation of “wood” laminate floors - which means that we need to cover them back up with rugs. I insist that my GTI is appropriate for carrying 8 foot rugs. Photos of house progress below.

Not the most comfortable driving position, but it works

So, in the past (as described in my auto-biography) I had a truck, and I used it less and less, so I’m still convinced that the GTI can do most things the truck could (things that I actually used it for, I mean). I may be pushing it. But my wife questioned whether we could get these home in my car, so that meant that it had to happen.

My mock-up of the home improvements was pretty spot on. Still need to paint the walls, though.
