The car made it through the annual checkup again, without comments. Yay! :-))) The inspector handed me the keys with a smile and promised there were no serious issues to report. He didn't quite rage about the quality of it, as last year's inspector did, but hey, I'll settle for a smile. Our good ol' Volvo keeps rolling, thankfully without any expensive problems (never mind the indicator lamp which turned itself off a few months back). 8-) Touch wood it will keep rolling another year.
