Full Decks

Not much posting of late, because El Jefe has been preoccupied with the usual round of work and secret police reports (his agents in Korea have been most active -- seeing that US beef doesn't get shipped away from the tables of El Jefe). Besides the usual, some unusual happenings -- shipping the Heir off to camp, visiting the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, Texas, and getting a new car. More on the trip to Fredricksburg later.
In any case, El Jefe got his new car, a dark, almost midnight blue Lexus ES-350 yesterday, and it is most spiffy. As usual, El Jefe appointed SWMBO the Imperial Plenipotentiary for Car Negotiations, took plenty of Pepto-Bismol and watched as she obtained the typical results (it's almost unfair to the car salesmen). Anyway, SWMBO the negotiator ensured that El Jefe's Lexus has every gizmo possible, and a few that really aren't. The car comes with instruction books that look like an encyclopedia. El Jefe has been much more interested in the car, and in catching up with work, than blogging, but he promises to rectify this soon.

i just knew it was going to be lexus.
i should have posted this earlier when it maybe would have been safer/funnier. having been out there forever it may not strike EJM I as humorous at the moment, and of course LL always runs the risk of being banned from the kingdom. not being able to get anyone to tell me where the new throneroom is is bad enough.

Maybe he can't sell cars, but we could sure use him on the Supreme Court.

Sweet! How very cool! I have the Toyota that is built on a Lexus platform - and it has been awesome for years! No trouble whatsoever. How fun you got all those extra bells and whistles!
